the gov. does have a way of denying things that dont fit "their" definition of how things aught to be, i know a couple of cowboys here in my area (i've been in colorado 2 years now) who were told that the are no grizzly bears here, then the rangers tried to fine them heavily when they roped it and ear tagged it. also a friend over on the utah border was told there are no wolves in the area, again he hung 6 on the fence after they devistated his sheep, and the wildlife officials who told him " they aint none around here" tried to cause trouble. many times throughout history the people who live in an area are told by the "scientists" that they're imagining things only to one day wake up and read about the great find in the national news papers. gotta wonder
Still, where does that put UFO's and Bigfoot?
