Sasquatch Academics

In one of my many careers I worked as a graphic artist. One of my jobs was to draw maps for a magazine. In a reference map I was thrilled to find a Here Be Sasquatch icon. You can bet I transferred it to the map I was preparing for the magazine.

And now a university professor is backing the believers up!

"The lack of skeletal remains of Sasquatch in the Pacific Northwest is readily explainable, said Jeff Meldrum, an Idaho State University anthropology professor, in R Thursday night.
His talk at the annual meeting of the CBB Club — “Do hidden creatures live in the Pacific Northwest?” — attracted a sold-out crowd of 130 people, a record number for the club.
He’s taken a look at what he believes is the scientific DNA and forensic evidence gathered on Sasquatch in his book Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science."

 The reason we have not found remains - "In the wet coniferous soils of the places they might live, any remains not chewed up by animals would disintegrate quickly in the soil.
How many of those in the room had ever found bones from creatures that were far more common, he asked. A bear skull? A wolverine skull? No hands went up."
