RGJ has reported that Dr. Jeff Meldrum, a Bigfoot specialist from Idaho State University who has appeared everywhere from the National Geographic Channel to NPR to the Syfy channel, explained his own findings Saturday at the Wilbur D. May Museum in Rancho San Rafael Regional Park during the museum’s “Creatures” exhibit.
Meldrum has trekked China, Russia and coast to coast of the United States to track down Bigfoot — and affirm the creature’s existence, which Meldrum said was long ago confirmed for him by footprint examinations, personal experiences and a distinct historical record.
Native American legends feature HAIRY HOMINIDS like Bigfoot as commonplace, but many famous American adventurers, including Theodore Roosevelt, also reference the beast in their journals.
“Lewis and Clark both wrote separately about a pass filled with fierce giants more akin to bears than people,” Meldrum said. “They described them as — get this — the men who wear no moccasins.”
