John Bindernagel was regarded as one of the few serious scientists to take an interest in the Bigfoot phenomenon.

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.
