It wasn't meant as an insult, just an observation that there may have been a more down to earth explanation for what the witness saw. I personally experienced how the mind can play tricks not too far from the location of that bigfoot sighting. I saw a large black cat moving about in some undergrowth (there had been several ABC sightings in the area) and I crept closer only to find that the big cat was actually a bin bag.
It proved to me how easily we can deceive ourselves (I was aware of the big cat sightings in the area which probably influenced what I saw) - looking back, what I saw was something glossy black behind heavy undergrowth - my mind must have filled in the gaps and come up with cat. It also showed I was daft enough to creep up on a big cat!
I saw black cat shaped things all the time as I have a few black cats, bushes mostly.
