One thing I am continually plagued with is to provide "the other side of the story" on the sasquatch. If you have read reviews of Meet the Sasquatch
, you will see that some highly uninformed people are of the opinion that there is, in fact, another side. What they are referring to is some kind of reports by anthropologists or other professionals that dispute the Patterson/Gimlin film and/or other evidence collected.
THE ONLY PROFESSIONAL WHO STUDIED THE FILM AND CAME UP WITH A "QUALIFIED " NEGATIVE REPORT WAS DR. DONALD GRIEVE, and his full report is included in Meet the Sasquatch
. As for other evidence, all of the professionals who have properly studied it have provided positive reports.
I do not consider Dr. David Daegling a serious scientist. He never analyzed the film or looked at the casts and so forth like Dr. Krantz, Dr. Meldrum and Dr. Fahrenbach. Daegling just wrote what came into his head and challenged the findings of others. I doubt that he has seen first hand any of the evidence. He is an armchair anthropologist.
