Where Are The Sasquatches In The OP??

Excellent post, SAS. I do strongly suspect that if you shoot one and bring it in, you will be revealed, and you will be persecuted to an unknown degree. That is just one of the reasons why I no longer wish to offensively kill one. However, I strongly wish to see them, and as much as possible, and there is no crime in that whatsoever. I am experienced in observing other North American predators without having to kill one defensively, too. But if a sasquatch attacked me, or gave me stalked me at night, I’d shoot it defensively in a heartbeat.Then I’d have no problem bringing it in to Meldrum, introducing myself, shake his hand, and give him a gift.

It is gettng to the point in Oregon and Washington that any self defense with a gun more than likely than not  results in charges against the person defending themselves.   Just yesterday two armed citizens got into a shootout with someone that stole merchandise from a store.    The thief tried to run over one of the citizens and they shot out two of the car tires.    The thief abandoned the car and got caught but the police were looking for the citizen shooters.    You can be sure they will be charged if found.   The patrons of the store were more afraid of the armed people than they were the thief.  The citizen shooters did not exactly follow the law.   They might have been wise to just slip away.

Yeah, if it wasn’t their store, screw it. Let the store owner work it out with the insurance company. I’m not a cop, and don’t want to be.

 

I think I’d do well with a jury of my peers in the defensive shooting of a sasquatch, especially if I enthusiastically passed a polygraph. I would imagine the notoriety would suck, but I already don’t like the bleeding heart environmental types, anyway. I wonder what the book deal would net me?.......LOL.........

Smedja did pretty well on talk shows until Sykes got ahold of his tissue sample and it turned out to be bear.   Sometimes I wonder if what he did was real and someone or something picked up the bodies leaving a bear carcus to find later.  

 

While what I carry is not likely to bring down a BF I sure am not going down without a fight if a BF attacks me.   I figure it will suffer a lot longer than I would if I get several shots into it before it tosses my head like a bowling ball.

One shot into the boiler room will eventually kill him.

 

The Smedja event goes to show that even if you panic and leave the scene, don’t do so with nothing. In his storyline, a baby sasquatch within a hundred yards of the truck would have been a huge coup. You could take the whole thing and transport it easily.

I am willing to bet 100 dollars that BF haul off their dead if they are aware one of them has died.    Smedjas bodies could have been carried off by the local BF themselves.   That level of care for the dead is problematic though.   It means they care if one of them is killed by some human.    With grief probably comes revenge.     I remember sitting and watching a red tailed hawk attack several pigeons.     It swooped in,   picked off one of the pigeons with a huge puff of feathers.  Then that hawk sat and ate the one it killed and the other pigeons just sat within feet and watched.    Those pigeons,  showed no remorse and if they displayed anything,   they were glad that it was not them being eaten.   But they did not care enough even to move away.

I hit an Arctic tern while depriving my Railroad speeder many years ago. I stopped, put my hard hat on like a good railroade, got out, and walked back to its body laying between the rails.

 

WHAM!   It’s mate had attacked me, hitting my hard hat, and screaming! It drove me running back to my speeder, waving my arms. Then I backed the speeder up to the carcass, and it attacked the speeder.

 

I left before he hurt himself, and I felt pretty bad about it.........

 

Apparently, you don’t have to be a higher order mammal to have enough love to fight for your dead.

 

Edited to add:

 

I wanted to point out that the first signs of human spirituality or religious ritual was burial of the dead, @ 100,000 years ago..........
