A new Angus Reed Public Opinion poll has found that at least 29% of Americans believe Bigfoot “probably” exists, compared to 21% of Canadians.
Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, gained mainstream popularity in 1958, when footprints of the creature were found in northern California. However, stories of these hairy, human-like cryptids date back to Native American legend.
Across the pond, only 17% of Britons believe the Loch Ness Monster exists, while 24% of Scotland residents believe in Nessie.
It makes sense that people living in the “homeland” of these mythical creatures would be more likely to believe in them.
It’s also interesting to note that there’s a political divide: According to the study, Democrats in the United States are more likely to believe in Bigfoot than Republicans or Independents.
