Let us chase Bigfoot in a blimp!
CLEARLY bonkers Idaho scientist with a potato for a brain is ignoring the catcalls from his peers as he bids to find Bigfoot. In a blimp.
And faculty member Jeffrey Meldrum is having the last laugh because Idaho State University has approved the proposal to find the mythical creature. Well done Idaho State University!
Alas, Meldrum now has to raise in advance of $300,000 to build a remote-controlled blimp, equip it with a thermal-imaging camera and send it after sasquatch! Not that Bigfoot would run away screaming at the first sight of a floating robot or anything.
Meldrum, author of Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science said that this is a giant leap in the quest for an animal he believes may have descended from a giant ape.
“The challenge with any animal that is rare, solitary, nocturnal and far-ranging in habitat is to find them and observe them in the wild; this technology provides for that,” he said.
Of course, a complete lack of fossils or other evidence apart from some grotty photographs and some anecdotal evidence from the barking mad, suggests that no man-ape ever found a way to America over the Bering Strait. Think that ‘mad’ is harsh? The last notable witness of sasquatch was a chap called William Barnes who said that the hairy beast was “well-manicured.”
Thus far, Meldrum has failed to raise a single dollar.
