The discovery (by western science) of what is probably a species of gorilla-sized chimps in the Congo, adds fuel to the notion that Bigfoot could exist without western science having proven it yet. Elusive African Apes: Giant Chimps or New Species? Address:http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2003/04/0414_030314_strangeape.html It is easier, of course to suppose that reports of a different kind of ape by locals in the Congo are worth checking on, because apes are already known to exit there. Reports by North American Natives about an elusive, ape-like creature aren't given much credence because there are no apes yet proven to exist here. And no bi-pedal apes are known to exist anywhere.
