Solved: This is Bigfoot’s Real Identity, According to Science

A new study by data analyst Floe Foxon suggests bigfoot sightings might not be as mythical as believed, potentially being misidentified bears.

Foxon analyzed a database of bigfoot sightings, mapped bear populations in North America, and created a model adjusting for land area and population density.

The study found that bigfoot sightings increase with black bear population density, suggesting many sightings are likely misidentified black bears.

Though some sightings occur where bears aren't present, other factors like poor visibility, psychological effects, or even other humans might explain these reports.
