COMOX VALLEY – The author of a new book on Sasquatches believes the creature is alive and well and even living here on Vancouver Island. “The Discovery of the Sasquatch” is the second book penned by wildlife biologist John Bindernagel who, despite never seeing the creature himself, is considered one of the world’s leading experts on Bigfoot.
Bindernagel says his latest book was seven years in the making and he was compelled to publish it to try to make the subject less “taboo” within the scientific community. The author also hopes awareness of the book will make it easier for members of the public who may be eyewitnesses to come forward.
Bindernagel says bigfoot sightings are more common than people realize but are often immediately discounted. He also predicts there are several people who have seen the creature but are afraid to talk about their encounters because they may have had bad experiences when recounting those sightings to friends or spouses.
With the time consuming writing process now behind him Bindernagel is hoping to catch up on what he says is a growing file folder full of names of previous witnesses. Information on his books and research are available through his website: http://www.bigfootbiologist.org
