The students noticed a creature watching them from a rise further above the trail they were on. It turned and walked away into the woods where it was quickly obscured by all the brush. The students, who want to remain anonymous, said it was not a bear, nor a human because it was so big and bulky. They seemed sure about that.
After the creature was gone, they went to the ridge where it had been and found fresh footprints. They photographed those and shared the photos with Dr. Jeff Meldrum, of Idaho State University. He’s an expert in examining and evaluating supposed Bigfoot/Sasquatch foot prints from around the world.

As I view the video again and again, all I can think is: can NO ONE take a video in focus? Are we forever cursed by grainy, fuzzy film? But I will say this, it has the conical head, the huge shoulders, long arms, and general bulk of a Bigfoot. I’m thinking this may be legitimate footage.
I was not impressed with the foot prints because it looked a little too perfect for me, but I don’t know. It could have been a youngish animal that hasn’t yet had the wear and tear as seen in footprints from older individuals.
The reporter mentioned that the program Finding Bigfoot will be traveling to Pocatello in June to gather reports from witnesses and do their own investigation in the area. It’ll be interesting to hear what they think about it!
