Bigfoot in north Georgia? If they had some blurry photos instead of an alleged corpse I could explain that away pretty easily: My big, hairy friend Jacob was backpacking there just a couple months ago. In just the right light and viewed through heavy undergrowth, he could perhaps be mistaken for a sasquatch.
As far as I know, though, Jake hasn't spent his time since then stuffed in a freezer awaiting DNA testing.
Now, as convincing as the evidence may seem (and who's not convinced by a photo of a hairy humanoid with inexplicably good teeth stuffed into a chest freezer by a couple of good ol' Georgia boys?), I have to offer my own contrary testament: I have spent a whole lot of time wandering the mountains of north Georgia and the largest bipedal creature I have yet encountered is very probably Jacob. And he is not a sasquatch. I'm pretty sure.
Come to think of it, the largest carnivore I've ever seen in the state of George was a bobcat, which is pretty cool but I'd trade that sighting for a bigfoot encounter any day. Except maybe all those days when I go hiking alone, because bigfoot, seeing as he (or she) is 7-foot-7 and 550 pounds, could likely twist my head clean off my shoulders with one massive, hirsute hand. Unless of course it just wants to be friends, in which case we will sit together on the mossy forest floor and share my bag of trail mix while exchanging interspecial pleasantries, likely through improvised sign language augmented with the occasional grunt.
At least that's how I picture it. Bigfoot would probably really like the M&Ms.
