Dr. Jeff Meldrum Speaks about Sasquatch at Columbia Basin Badger Club

Posted: Updated:
RICHLAND, WA - The Columbia Basin Badger Club hosted guest speaker Dr. Jeff Meldrum Thursday night at the Red Lion in Richland. 

He is the author of "Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science" and spoke on the possibility that bigfoot, or a creature like it is either living among us now or has been in the not so distant past. 

Dr. Meldrum and other scientists say the idea of what they call a "relic species" has come from more than 20 years of research combined with hundreds of years of lore. 

"I've been at this for nearly 20 years and I'm starting to see progress. I'm starting to see traction within the anthropological community. For example the notion of relics species living beside us into the very recent past if not the present. Is not so far-fetched is really not so unorthodox," says Dr. Jeff Meldrum. 

Dr. Meldrum is an anthropology professor at Idaho State University and has written numerous academic papers covering evolution, bipedal humans, and morphology.
