On this edition of Sasquatch Tracks, we turn a critical eye toward a possible sighting report from the Pacific Northwest, as some residents say they observed a large animal near a secluded roadway. We also touch on gorillas recently treated for COVID-19 at one U.S. zoo and the possible implications regarding America’s purported relict hominoid.
Then joining us for a discussion about his research in West Virginia is Dr. Russ Jones, a chiropractor and longtime BFRO investigator whose book, Tracking the Stone Man: West Virginia’s Bigfoot explores the region’s history and involvement with the search for purported relict hominoids. Russ has studied the question of Sasquatch’s existence for many years, having participated in and led several expeditions by the Bigfoot Field Researcher’s Organization (BFRO).
Today, as a graduate of his home state’s master naturalist program, Russ lends his skills in nature studies toward answering the long-held questions about whether there are undiscovered species in America’s remotest corners. We talk with him about the evidence he has found in his own investigations, and whether it supports the idea of relict populations of humanlike creatures in the Eastern United States.
