Healthwatch: “Sasquatch Sleuth” Larry Lund

Posted by: Loren Coleman on May 6th, 2009

Larry Lund, during December 2008, shared the above photograph of himself with me and his associates in the Bigfoot community. He was delighted to experience a rare snowstorm at his PNW home.

It is with sadness that I’ve heard that Larry, who turns 62 during 2009, is now in a hospital, recovering from some health setbacks.

Early Tuesday morning, after midnight, May 5, 2009, Larry Lund, known as “The Sasquatch Sleuth,” was taken to Portland, Oregon’s Veteran’s Hospital for a medical emergency.

It was reported that his right carotid artery was 80% blocked, and, initially, he was scheduled to undergo surgery Wednesday morning for a possible carotid stint.

However, after this morning’s angiogram, Lund experienced a serious incident, and he was quickly moved to ICU. At this time, his surgical procedure has been canceled.

Bigfoot archivist and a nurse, Bobbie Short recommends that “cheerful get well cards from his friends can be sent to,”
