Bigfoot as a forest spirit

A quote from the website below--

// If Sasquatch is some type of ghost or spirit entity it sure would explain a lot. We wouldn’t expect to find a living specimen, or a body, bones or even a fossil record. Ghostly calls in the night would be par for the course we would think, and even footprints left behind and tossed rocks and sticks aren’t outside of the norm for the standard supernatural apparition.

More than anything, it would explain why sightings are so fleeting, and why, even with the woods crawling with people (some of them looking for him), Bigfoot has never been properly documented.

It’s because he isn’t really there. At least not in the way we’re used to thinking.

Native American legends are often cited as proof that Sasquatch exists in North America. After all, if people have been seeing him for thousands of years, he must really be out there. But many indigenous Bigfoot legends mix the spiritual world with the biological world, and accounts of Bigfoot with shape-shifting abilities, or the powers of invisibility, are not uncommon.//
