Scientists set to prove ‘Bigfoot’ is no myth

Bigfoot Field Researchers says almost every expedition yields a sighting

MANISTIQUE, Mich. – Researchers will visit the Upper Peninsula next month to search for evidence of the hairy manlike creature known as “Bigfoot” or “Sasquatch.”

Most experts consider the Bigfoot legend to be a combination of folklore and hoaxes, but there are a number of authors and researchers who think the stories could be true.

In all but three of 30 expeditions in the United States and Canada, BFRO investigators have either glimpsed Bigfoot or gotten close enough to hear the creature, Moneymaker said.

Dr. Grover Krantz, a scientist specializing in cryptozoology, believes Bigfoot is a “gigantopithecus,” a branch of primitive man believed to have existed 3 million years ago.

But mainstream scientists tend to dismiss the study as pseudoscience because of unreliable eyewitness accounts and a lack of solid physical evidence.
