What appears to be a large dark figure disappearing into the brush and trees on a hillside near the West Fork of Mink Creek, Idaho, was captured on a brief video clip made by Pocatello students recently.
The students who chose to remain unidentified told Local News 8 they were on a field trip for a school project when they spotted a dark figure watching them from a ridge above them. One student took the digital video clip with his camera.
“It just didn’t look human like. I don’t know what that is, it’s not a bear, it’s not a moose or anything. It was big and bulky and black,” the student told Channel 8.
The students also told the television station that they climbed up the ridge and took photographs of large footprints they discovered.
ISU professor and Sasquatch expert, Jeff Meldrum, has examined the photos and the short video captured by the students. Retired ISU professor and anatomist Trent Stephens was in Meldrum’s office when the film was being examined Wednesday.
The two professors have co-authored two books.
