Aurora Blimp & Bigfoot Again

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 5th, 2012

Today, November 5, Reuters is talking about Meldrum’s appeal for money, again, in reference to the Aurora blimp looking for Bigfoot. This was discussed by me and others on October 15th.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    sounds like, in theory, it could maybe be a good idea…. blimp floats silently with thermal and special cameras…..


  2. DWA responds:

    Wait. The U approved his request?


    Hope Jeff enclosed some caveats. This effort yielding nothing doesn’t mean there’s nothing there. Were an APB out for me, they wouldn’t be relying on a blimp with a camera to find me.

    And as usual, the mainstream objections mentioned here are without merit. What else is new?

  3. DWA responds:

    And I had to add this:

    The Reuters article refers to “decades of…elaborate hoaxes…”

    Normally, when you state something is true, you have to provide proof.

    Anyone with any evidence of an “elaborate” bigfoot hoax, please step forward.

    (Hint: there’s never been any.)

  4. Ploughboy responds:

    “… and no Bigfoot has been captured or killed, skeptics argue.”

    (And, by gosh, we are important science guys, with lots of letters after our names, and we necessarily would have heard about such a thing if it ever happened, at any time, because, you know, we know EVERYTHING that has ever happened in human history, that included.”

  5. MR JOSHUA responds:

    I truly hope a great North American Ape is discovered in Jeff Meldrum’s lifetime. I give him so much credit for keeping an open mind and giving this mystery the scientific attention it deserves. He is objective with evidence and is the first to admit that every noise or track in the woods is not “definitely a Sasquatch.” This is a great idea and I hope he finds the funding.

  6. PoeticsOfBigfoot responds:

    DWA, how about the Georgia boys who had a Bigfoot in their freezer a few years ago?

  7. dconstrukt responds:

    yes DWA….

    gotta give him credit, at least this guy is thinking out of the box and trying to find the thing… although I believe a massive network of trap cams spread out across migrating patterns of deer/elk and locations of other food supplies would work way better.

    just my 2 cents 🙂

  8. DWA responds:


    “DWA, how about the Georgia boys who had a Bigfoot in their freezer a few years ago?”

    Soon as I heard “bigfoot” and “freezer” in the same article, I moved on to serious stuff.

    Nothing to do with this.

  9. DWA responds:


    Well, one reason Jeff’s going this tack, I suspect, is that a suitably massive trailcam network would be prohibitive in cost, before one factors in the cost of maintaining it.

    Besides which, numerous folks are doing smaller scale trailcam stuff, including these guys.

    So, Jeff’s taking the surveillance a place no one else is, yet. Seems like not a bad strategy.

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
