The question was of bigfoot, but this part is more general. When
discussing existence one must be careful about what exactly is the
consept. Capturing one is not sufficient to prove existence of
bigfoot: in addition one must show that the captured individual
is a bigfoot. On the other hand, a much smaller sample -- e.g., some
hair -- can be sufficient, or at least prove that some interesting
animal exists (or has existed).
