When researching Bigfoot, the Researcher should be aware of the capability that is employed of diversion.
In the illustration shown above, a hiker spots a juvenile Bigfoot along the trail. As she stands there watching it, momma Bigfoot begins shaking trees and branches to divert the hikers attention and allow the juvenile to scamper away from view.
If this does not work, the Bigfoot may resort to vocalizations, rock throwing and even appearing in the open itself to make the distraction for the juvenile to escape.
This has been witnessed on numerous occasions by MABRC Researchers in the field.
One such incident happened on an expedition in Oklahoma where two researchers were watching a Bigfoot crawl across a field towards the base camp. When they used their infrared lighting on their night scopes to paint the Bigfoot, it was for all intents and purposes trapped in that spot by them.
From behind them on the opposite side of camp, vocalizations began occurring that began as one animal, slurred into a second animal call, and then proceeded to imitate at least 5 different animals to create a diversion for the Bigfoot that was laying in the field.
When the researchers finally looked away, the Bigfoot in the field was able to belly crawl away from the base camp and into the woods surrounding the field.
Bigfoot will create diversions in order to help each other escape situations such as this.
