Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, has been a legend across the United States for a long time and seems to have a cult following. That’s what it appears to be, anyway, considering there’s a bill on the table making it illegal for state-funded colleges to fund hunts for mythical creatures. With government officials speaking out about previous expeditions, we thought now would be a good time to take a look some of the evidence of Bigfoot in New Mexico.
Sightings of Bigfoot in New Mexico aren’t exactly uncommon, and while many blatantly deny the creature’s existence, there’s likely a basis for the legend.
One of the most recent sightings came just a few years ago near the San Juan River. Dr. Jeff Meldrum, a leading expert on Bigfoot, captured an infrared video of the creature in its natural habitat.
While sightings tend to be scattered, to say the least, most have similar characteristics. Reports usually list large foot prints, some nearly 18 inches, as a common sign of the mythical creature. Others include rock throwing and harsh sounds. Still, others indicate that they actually saw a hairy man-like beast.
We here at Gurley Motor Company can’t help but be a little skeptical about most of the Bigfoot sightings in New Mexico.
