John Bindernagel Dead at 76
Famed cryptozoologist John Bindernagel died the evening of Wednesday, January 17th, 2018, following a two-year battle with cancer.
Bindernagel was a wildlife biologist with a particular interest in Bigfoot. In 1998 he published his book North America's Great Ape: the Sasquatch.
Originally from Ontario, Canada, Bindernagel attended the University of Guelph, before receiving a PhD in biology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
In 1975, the scientist moved to British Columbia, largely due to the region's reputation as a hot spot for Bigfoot sightings. Bindernagel was perhaps best known for his work collecting physical evidence of North America's great ape, and holding the field of cryptozoology to a strict scientific standard.
He was 76.
