  1. A northern Idaho woman recently made national news after she blamed a car crash on a sasquatch. Now a noted local Bigfoot researcher is saying that her story seems credible on the surface. Dr. Jeff Meldrum, professor of anatomy and anthropology at Idaho State University, has been researching Bigfoot sightings for years, and he said the woman’s claim is not out of the realm of possibility. According to an article in the Moscow-Pullman Daily News, the woman, a 50-year-old resident of the town of Tensed, told police she saw a sasquatch chasing a deer on the side of the road last Wednesday night while driving on U.S. Highway 95 near the Idaho/Washington border. Then, she checked her rearview mirror to get a second look at what she described as a 7- to 8-foot tall “shaggy” creature. But when she looked up, the deer ran in front of her and she struck the animal with her Subaru Forester. Even though Meldrum has not interviewed the woman making the claims, he said the story does seem credible due to how she handled the sighting in the aftermath of the crash. “It’s intriguing because she sounds like a very credible witness,” he said, noting that there is no suggestion that she was inebriated or delusional. “Her first response was to report it to the sheriff and not post it on Facebook.” Meldrum also said that the whole scenario seems plausible, especially considering the time of year and the location of the crash, which occurred near a heavily wooded national forest. “The most common places to see a Bigfoot is on a highway at night or adjacent to a body of water,” he said. “The whole northern panhandle is prime habitat for a sasquatch. This is also the time of year you would expect a Bigfoot to be chasing deer, when it’s malnourished at the end of winter.” Though Meldrum said this is all speculation at this point, he does say there are some other possibilities to explain the sighting. The woman could have merely misinterpreted what she saw chasing the deer. While it could have been a bear emerging from its winter den and looking for a meal, Meldrum said that explanation seems unlikely. “A bear isn’t going to be chasing deer on its hind legs,” Meldrum said. “The bear would have taken one or two steps before going back on four legs.” There’s also the possibility that the woman was being pranked. In 2012, a man dressed in a Bigfoot costume was trying to drum up sightings of the creature along a Montana highway. Instead, he ended up getting struck by two cars and killed. But what fascinates Meldrum most about the case in northern Idaho is how much interest the story has generated. It has already been picked up by multiple national news organizations such as Fox News and was one of the top trending stories on Facebook this weekend. “What’s interesting is the attention it has gotten,” he said. “It isn’t obviously involving a crazy person and it doesn’t seem like a prank. I think it struck a chord because it was just so mundane, but it smacks of a credible encounter.” In the end, the Associated Press reported that police marked the incident allegedly involving Bigfoot as a vehicle versus deer collision. On the evenings of April 14 and 15, Meldrum will make two presentations at the National Oregon/California Trail Center in Montpelier regarding the subject of Bigfoot. The first presentation, entitled “Sasquatch and Other Wildmen: The Search for Relict Hominoids,” will be held on Friday at 7:30 p.m. Meldrum will discuss the shifting attitude of science towards cryptic man-like species, such as sasquatch, surviving into the present alongside humans in various remote corners of the globe. Meldrum will also hold a book signing beginning at 6 p.m. in the lobby of the center. The second presentation, entitled “50 Years of the Patterson-Gimlin Film,” will be held on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. The year 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the controversial film footage depicting what alleges to be a Bigfoot in northern California. Meldrum will discuss his findings regarding the film. He will be available from 1 to 7 p.m. for questions and book signing.
  2. Every ten years, or so, a black bear is reported on the NW border of Nebraska/Wyoming. Some love-crazed stud bear out wandering around, looking for a confused sow. We have far more moose reported, across the wide breadth of our state, but they get a brain worm that causes them to wander. That being said, the upcoming total solar eclipse will traverse more miles across my state than any other of the 50. C'mon out to witness, I'll provide a helluva couple days entertainment!
  3. And knew my response to your posting, too. Eh, my Maine associate? BTW, ME and NE, not too far off, eh? ;-)
  4. Some claim their mental pen-pals.
  5. While researching yesterday, to find the speed of the moon's shadow across the path of totality, found this: Eclipse shadows travel at 1,100 miles per hour at the equator and up to 5,000 miles per hour near the poles. Also found this: Local animals and birds often prepare for sleep or behave confusedly during totality.
  6. I've made the point, previously, that an animal or animals weighing several hundreds of pounds would necessarily leave distinct sign of their existence in a given area. There must be an impact on the local flora / fauna.
  7. I approve this thread. It meshes nicely with my main reason for being here: Cruising for bigfoot groupie chicks. I must admit, the pickins' have been pretty slim, so far.
  8. Pity they didn't enjoy a good Maker's Mark on the rocks. Oh, and let me mention a big, blue pill for the old guys. ;-)
  9. Count me in.
  10. Ash: Don't touch that please, your primitive intellect wouldn't understand alloys and compositions and things with... molecular structures.
  11. Oops, never mind!
  12. I found this to be an interesting article. I doubt the BFF most-dangerous poster approves, but from the standpoint of actual scientists, you might enjoy, too: In Memoriam: All Members of the Human Family Tree That Were Bested by Evolution A glance at the evolutionary family tree of humans reveals that the three earliest-known branches are full of species that appear far more ape-like than the "caveman" stereotype associated with the Homo branch. Some of these strange-looking guys and gals are evolutionary ancestors of humans, but others might be hominids that just co-existed with the ancestors of modern humans, meaning we're related, but we didn't necessarily evolve from them. Thanks to the efforts of talented sculptors and scientists, we can look at models of these early hominids in museums and online, but the truth is that most of what we know about these species is from a few scattered bone fragments. The fossil record has been filled in tremendously since the first findings in the 1920s, so we're learning an extraordinary amount about the history of human evolution each year. Read on for a brief tour of the major hominids that predated the branch that eventually lead to Homo sapiens (that's you!).
  13. Geez, this has gotten silly of late. "More control." Heh!
  14. MIB, I tend to concur. Doesn't lend credence to sightings, reports. YMMV
