Let's put our skepticism aside and ponder the possibility of Bigfoot. What ecological requirements would a small population of these creatures need? Is there an ecological system in Indiana that could support such a community? No sightings of Bigfoot have been made at Cool Creek Park, but we will go looking for him anyway.
