An Idaho scientist shrugging off skeptical fellow scholars in his quest for evidence of Bigfoot has turned his sights skyward, with plans to float a blimp over the U.S. mountain West in search of the mythic, ape-like creature. Idaho State University has approved the unusual proposal of faculty member Jeffrey Meldrum, an anatomy and anthropology professor ridiculed by some peers for past research of a being whose existence is widely disputed by mainstream science. Now Meldrum is seeking to raise $300,000-plus in private donations to build the remote-controlled dirigible, equip it with a thermal-imaging camera and send it aloft in hopes of catching an aerial glimpse of Bigfoot...
The visual evidence, including the new photographs, of the Bigfoot allegedly lurking outside of Dallas is fun, if not necessarily convincing. One wonders why snapping Bigfoot with a camera always results in a blurred, grainy image, even in the era of digital photography. Via KLTV in Texas:

There have been reported sightings of bigfoot in remote East Texas locations, and even near Dallas, and a photographer says he has proof that bigfoot may be closer than we think. The Dallas area photographer, who remains anonymous, was never a bigfoot believer by his own admission.
He shot images in Shelby county of something moving in the woods…something large and hairy watching from the trees. But light and shadow can play tricks. East Texas bigfoot researcher Mike Hall and his team from Texla crypto zoological research examined the images to see if they have merit.
“Some of the shots you can actually make out what looks like a pair of eyes.

Yetis have been ‘sighted’ recently in three different remote areas in Kemerovo region, according to local reports. Russia is to host a conference and expedition in search of the yeti next month.
One was spotted this month by an unnamed state inspector in the Shorsky National Park, says local government official Sergei Adlyakov. ‘The creature did not look like a bear and quickly disappeared after breaking some branches. Earlier in August, fisherman Vitaly Vershinin saw two creatures near Myski village, according to a local Siberian newspaper. It was reported that several days after this sighting ‘local people saw a strange creature one more time’.
Officials in Kuzbass, Kemerovo region, told of another alleged sighting.’We were sailing in a boat without an engine.
Swedish prop artist Jacob Petersson combines elements of cryptozoology, folkore and folk art to create nightmarishly curious objets d’art. The “Sasquatch Hand” featured here is just one of many unique pieces featured at his website “CURIOMIRA“, which is definitely worth a visit if you’re a fan of art and the unknown.
The oddly blurry photo captured may seem a bit sketchy, but make up your own mind about the latest alleged sighting in a remote area of Ontario that could be described as a Bigfoot hot spot. Via Cryptomundo:
Multiple Bigfoot have been witnessed near Wunnumin Lake. Wunnumin Lake is a remote Oji-Cree First Nation’s community located 360 km north of Sioux Lookout, Ontario, Canada.
In Wawatay News Online, a first nation news source, they report on multiple encounters by different witnesses in the area. The picture above is attached to the article with a caption:
“This photo, captured by a young girl while on vacation in Wunnumin Lake this past August, has been circulating around the internet and fueling speculation of a family of Bigfoots living near the community.”

Loren Coleman started pursuing unusual, often inexplicable animals in 1960, and has since become one of the world’s foremost experts in the field of cryptozoology. The discipline, as defined by the master himself, “is the study of hidden or unknown animals. Zoological species that, to-date, remain unverified by science, such as Yetis, Bigfoot, Lake Monsters, and Sea Serpents, as well as hundreds of other yet-to-be-found animals (cryptids) worldwide. It also encompasses the study of animals of recent discovery, such as the coelacanth, okapi, megamouth shark, giant panda, and mountain gorilla.”
Coleman has amassed an unrivaled collection of specimens, replicas, and artifacts relating to famous and lesser-known cryptids, including the eight-and-a-half foot tall, 300-pound “Crookston Bigfoot,” a life-size coelacanth, P.

A man who was apparently trying to provoke reports of a Bigfoot sighting in northwestern Montana was struck by two cars and killed, authorities said. Flathead County officials identified the man as Randy Lee Tenley, 44, of Kalispell.
The man was wearing a military-style “Ghillie suit” consisting of strips of camouflage fabric and was standing in the right-hand lane of a highway south of Kalispell on Sunday night when he was hit by the first car, according to the Montana Highway Patrol. A second car hit the man as he lay in the roadway, authorities said.
“He was trying to make people think he was Sasquatch so people would call in a Sasquatch sighting,” trooper Jim Schneider told the Daily Inter Lake newspaper on Monday.
