    Teddy Roosevelt vs Bigfoot

    There are quite a few odd myths surrounding Teddy Roosevelt and Bigfoot. One story is that Roosevelt killed Bigfoot during one of his hunting expeditions. Another says Roosevelt once had a face-to-face encounter with the creature, and some versions say he had to fight for his life.

    If any of these things actually happened, there is no evidence. Roosevelt never saw a Bigfoot, never tracked one and never shot one. But he is responsible for one of the more interesting Bigfoot stories ever told, especially back in the pre-1950s era.

    It’s tough to imagine Barack Obama or George W. Bush discussing Bigfoot, at least publicly. But Teddy Roosevelt may have been more qualified than most presidents to weigh in on the big, hairy guy. Roosevelt was known as the conservation president, and he dearly loved all things outdoors. He was a naturalist, a hunter and a student of zoology from a young age.
    It really shouldn’t be surprising that such a man would entertain thoughts of a rare species of North American Ape living somewhere out there in the woods. He’d likely heard of such stories from Native Americans. Remember, back when Roosevelt was a young man the western states still had a lot of mystery about them.

    Did Theodore Roosevelt believe in Bigfoot? Might he have had an encounter that he never revealed to anyone? At the very least he told a great story, but to understand the full weight of it, it’s important to understand a little bit about Roosevelt himself....

    Didn't look anything up, but I think this Bigfoot Bullshit only started many years after Teddy Roosevelt died.
