America, being the place where Bigfoot sightings happen most often, is logically the place where the most serious of Bigfoot believers are. There are a lot of these groups and many of them are quite active. They hold gatherings, discussions, go on trips, in short, everything Bigfoot related. A huge amount of these people also find calling Bigfoots 'Man-killers' is insulting and plain wrong.

They say that Bigfoots aren't aggressive, and point out that,if that was the case, we wouldn't be seeing any Bigfoot sightings at all, since logically, a giant Bigfoot could easily kill any man if that was his goal. One of the stories, that of a man called Matthew Johnson, supports this claim. 

His first encounter with the creatures happened on the first of July, year 2000. He was out in the Oregon woods with his family when he spotted it. The huge, hairy creature was right in front of him, in plain sight. 

He was scared for both himself and his family, as he had no means to protect them. The Bigfoot eventually went away, but the event and its impact changed his life forever. He had nightmares about it for years, and wasn't comfortable sleeping in a forest for long after the incident.

But that's not where his story ended. Matthew didn't just have this encounter and move on, actually, the absolute opposite is true. Today he runs a website dedicated to everything Bigfoot related, where, the writes blogs, sells products, his books and shares his findings with the world.

He has equipment set up in the woods which he uses to record all night, hoping to catch any Bigfoots making noise. He's made numerous comments on the creatures, and refers to them as Forest People. He considers that to be the proper name for them.

Matthew fully agrees with people who claim that Bigfoots are not violent creatures. He said, in one of his blogs, that if it were true, he wouldn't be sharing his story. This is a pretty good point, but one that brings up more questions. 

Yeti's might not be violent on sight, but what if they have a reason? If someone enters their territory, or if they feel threatened? What would a Yeti do then? Would he flee, escaping from conflict? Or would he take more drastic measures to defend himself? 

This important bit of questioning is something Matthew has addressed in his blogs. He said that it makes sense that a Yeti would attack to defend his territory and safety, but that you shouldn't feel like your life is in danger. You should just accept you're not welcome and that you should move outside its territory. 

That's a reasonable point. If a giant hairy beast shows aggression, moving away does sound like a good idea. But there is one part of this conundrum that he missed. What if you're not able to move away? What if you're cornered in a cave? What if you're tired and can't outrun him? What if you fall? What happens when you end up at a dead end and have to face the force of nature head on? 

If a Yeti would show aggression to defend his home, would he act upon it? One man found out just that, and it was the last thing he'd ever learn...
