Bigfoot Researcher Wants to Use Blimp with Thermal Imaging System to Find Sasquatch

 |  |  |  |  |  November 6, 2012


I don’t know whether or not Bigfoot really exists. What I do know is that we find new species no one has ever seen with remarkable regularity. I’m not ready to rule out the existence of Bigfoot, but I’m also not ready to go running around the woods at night hunting for a hairy, smelly, primate.

A researcher from Idaho State University, Jeffrey Meldrum, is set to use a scientific approach to trying to determine once and for all if Bigfoot is real. Meldrum, a professor of anatomy and anthropology at the university, is trying to raise $300,000 to build a remote-control blimp that will carry a thermal imaging system. The idea is the blimp will float above forests searching for evidence of Bigfoot.

If the dirigible finds evidence of the beast, the location would be sent to people on the ground who would follow-up and try to catch an in-person glimpse of the fabled Sasquatch. Either that or the blimp could route them to their demise at the hands of a hungry and angry primate.
