Bigfoot Versions Differ Across Cultures, But Rooted In Common 'Wild Man' Myth, Expert Suggests

More than a quarter of Americans believe in Bigfoot, a recent poll found. They claim this legendary bipedal ape, a "long lost relative" of humans, evades detection in remote woodland areas. Although it may seem strange to think a 7-foot-tall land mammal could go unnoticed for so long, the notion is actually widespread.

Along with that sizeable minority of Americans, an Angus Reid Public Opinion poll found that 21 percent of Canadians also believe in an undiscovered hairy humanoid, which they prefer to call Sasquatch. In Russia, belief in a similar creature, called the Yeti, is so common that local branches of the Russian government have funded Yeti expeditions, and the country has even considered founding an entire institute devoted to the study of Yetis.

BF 'versions' differ across different regions of the same nation... but even given the differences in "HOW" people interpret and communicate what's happened to them, I'm willing to bet there are more similarities than differences in the actual species seen.
