"DOG BOY," AND OTHER
"It's definitely not a bear," Abraham Hunter, chief of the 260-member band, told the Post in Monday's editions. This is not the first Bigfoot report at the reserve. Two elders claim to have spotted the creature 20 years ago, Mr. Hunter said, and stories about it have been told for hundreds of years.
"These things happen all the time, but we're surprised because we underestimate the power of imagination and the power of belief,'' Laurence Kirmayer, director of McGill University's division of social and transcultural psychiatry, told the paper. Such sightings are typically cultural-specific, he said.
On June 14, a government officer with 31 years of experience also came across an odd-looking track 95 miles east of the reserve, the newspaper said.
"I couldn't explain
what it was. I naturally thought it might be Bigfoot because of the shape
of it,'' he told the Post.
