How Does Bigfoot Survive the Winter?

By Tim Binnall

With a polar vortex causing temperatures to plunge throughout the Midwest and storms undoubtedly set to blanket the country with snow over the course of the winter, one can't help but wonder how Sasquatch, should the creature exist, endures these extreme conditions. Fortunately, a TV station in Albany, New York attempted to find an answer to this curious question by way of an interview with Gayle Beatty from the Bigfoot Researchers of the Hudson Valley and she shared a number of surprisingly detailed insights into how the creature probably survives the season.

Much like humans are notorious for plundering their local grocery stores ahead of a major storm, Beatty suggested that Bigfoot behaves in a similar fashion, albeit by stockpiling wildlife rather than milk and bread. "The Sasquatch, we believe, are hunting more for deer with high protein," she mused, "they take ducks, geese, muskrat, beaver, whatever they can get a hold of." Although the creature is known for its hirsute nature, Beatty indicated that the Bigfoot's fur may not be enough to protect it from frigid temperatures. As such, she said, "they do den in caves. They go into people's barns sometimes to stay warm in the haylofts and also in abandoned houses."

While the winter season may be challenging for the cryptid, it does provide the possibility for new evidence for Bigfoot researchers by way of prints laid down in freshly fallen snow. To that end, Beatty encouraged anyone who may have spotted a Sasquatch track to photograph and measure their find as well as report it to their local cryptozoology research group. She also observed, for those who may be uncertain as to whether or not they've seen a genuine print, that they "are usually inline tracks so you'll see one print and then maybe, four or five feet later, another and another."
