The Founding Fathers and Bigfoot: Why Didn't They Exterminate Them?

Here's an interesting video that features an individual discussing a topic that has been on his mind - the idea that the founding fathers of the United States knew about the existence of Bigfoot and other cryptids, yet did nothing to exterminate them. The individual in the video mentions that these creatures have been written about since the times of the Native Americans in their oral traditions, cave paintings, and pictographs. He questions why the founding fathers, who were wise men, did not see these creatures as a threat to Westward expansion and the growth of the nation. The video also brings up the fact that during the Civil War, some of the greatest strategic minds in the country, including high-ranking officers on both the Confederate and Union sides who were West Point professors, could have easily dealt with these creatures, yet they did not. The video raises an interesting point - why did these great leaders not get rid of these creatures? The video mentions that even indigenous wildlife that were considered predatory, such as grizzly bears, were smoked out of existence in some areas, so why not the Bigfoot and other cryptids? The video also brings up the idea that during the Cold War, the Soviet Union could have captured a Bigfoot and presented it to the American people, exposing what America was hiding from its citizens in their own backyards and woods. While the video may seem like the ramblings of a conspiracy theorist, it is important to note that sightings of Bigfoot and other cryptids have been reported for centuries, and many individuals believe in their existence. The video is sure to spark a discussion among Bigfoot enthusiasts, witnesses, and researchers about why these creatures have been allowed to exist and what could have been done to exterminate them.
