Oliver is not a Sasquatch, but you might not have known that in the 1970s. Articles about Oliver being a Bigfoot were written in all seriousness.
But Oliver is a chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes).
Unfortunately, despite his history being easily obtainable, I still get inquiries about Oliver really being a Bigfoot.
Supposedly, there is a government conspiracy to keep Oliver hidden away in Texas and the “truth” about his Sasquatch affinities hidden from all of you.
Sometimes a mishandled chimp merely grows up to be a dysfunctional but recovering chimp.
Sometimes a mangy bear is only a mangy bear.
