FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Cabela’sStrange, Rare and Unusual Sightings Seminar
People see things in the woods that do not have a clear explanation. Trail Cameras get photos of creatures and their behavior that defy conventional thought. There are thousands of reported sightings of animals, tracks and dens that have no explanation. Mainstream scientists have slowly taken on the research into this phenomenon and have generated new interest and new evidence and findings are surfacing every day. There have been reported sightings of large bipedal ape like creatures all over the world for hundreds of years. A sixteen millimeter film shot in 1967 of a creature walking through the mountains of northern California is still being analyzed and there is consensus that it may be real. Footprints, seventeen inches in length, are being discovered and studied by leading authorities. DNA samples have been studied and conclusions are forthcoming. Some people close to these investigations are reporting that the DNA samples from North America may resemble that of a Primate. No known Primates inhabit North America. Is Sasquatch real or myth?
That is the question that top scientific researchers will be exploring during the Strange, Rare and Unusual Sightings Seminar at Cabela’s on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 14,15,16. This Seminar is now in its fourth year at Cabela’s and has been enjoyed by hundreds of inquiring people of all ages in the last three presentations. Last year's event had a record attendence and Dr. Jeff Meldrum will be returning again as the featured presenter speaking on both Saturday and Sunday.
Meldrum is an Associate Professor of Anatomy and Anthropology at Idaho State University and recognized as one of the leading scientific authorities on the possibility of the existence of Sasquatch or Bigfoot. Dr. Meldrum is recognized as an authority as well on bipedal locomotion or how two legged creatures walk. Dr. Meldrum’s book,” Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science” is credited by top scientists as being a real scientific analysis of the evidence and is the top selling book on the subject. In his book, Dr. Meldrum develops a baseline of science on which further research can be based and with critical examination he forces no conclusions.
Joining Dr. Jeff Meldrum will be researchers Eric Altman and David Dragosin of the Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society, Independent Researcher Stan Gordon and Billy Willard, Founder of Sasquatch Watch of Virginia. These organizations have quietly and methodically investigated multiple reported sightings in West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Ohio. Eric Altman is a Crypto zoologist, specializing in Bigfoot/Sasquatch research and is the Director of the Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society. He is the host and producer of the alternative talk show program, Beyond the Edge Radio. Eric and Dave Dragosin, assistant director of the Pennsylvania group have investigated over 300 sighting reports in the Uniontown and Chestnut Ridge areas of Western Pennsylvania. Billy Willard has been called in on the investigations of multiple reported sightings of Bigfoot in West Virginia. Stan Gordon was the principal investigator of the Kecksburg, Pennsylvania UFO incident in 1965 when an unidentified object landed in the small community south of Pittsburgh that was surrounded with controversy and accusations of a cover up. Gordon now continues his investigations into unexplained events in many areas of the United States.
The Strange, Rare and Unusual Sightings Seminar will include trail camera photos submitted by Cabela’s customers of unusual wildlife in our vicinity, including possible photos of a Cougar taken not far from Cabela’s store at the Highlands. There will be a meet and greet reception, question and answer session and chance to share your experiences with Dr. Jeff Meldrum and the other scientists and researchers from 6 until 8PM on Friday evening, March 14th in Cabela’s Conference Center.
The seminars will be presented both on Saturday, March 15th and Sunday, March 17th beginning at 10:00 AM. The program is expected to go until about 5PM. Many of the participants have witnessed large footprints and have made plaster casts of the prints. These and other plaster casts will be on display for the event. The researchers will show photographs and video of what appears to be Sasquatch taken in multiple locations. There will be eyewitness reports presented at the seminar by people who have seen these creatures. Those attending may draw their own conclusions.
There is no charge for the event and reservations are not required plus those attending can register while there for several high quality trail cameras and other prizes to be given away both on Saturday and on Sunday.
There will also be Vendor and Display tables located in Cabela’s Conference Center on the second floor all weekend.
