Authorities have been looking in to the sighting of an alleged Bigfoot on a road near Linwood.
In what Sheriff Kevin Stukenholtz admits is his first Bigfoot case, a 15-year-old was said to have encountered a 7ft humanoid covered in hair when it dashed out in front of the vehicle he was driving at around 5:30am one morning in July.
So let's add another state to the list of places where old Foot lives - and go ahead and add a breeding population there as well.
Let's also note that Nebraska Bigfeet are probably more the Baby Ruth eating, standing on the side of the road waving types as opposed to the Predator-style holographic camouflage, interdimensional being types.
Hey, I'm not wrong. I'm just not completely right.

If there is nothing to it, then we'll not hear about the hair again.
This does smell like a prank.
From OP link:
The sheriff said that even though he thinks it’s highly unlikely that Sasquatch has shown up in Saunders County, his office has an obligation to check out credible reports.
I like this sheriff, he at least is following up on a report and not dismissing out of hand that there was Something that ran across the road.
The report wouldn’t be the first for Nebraska, according to the Montana-based Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, which lists reported Sasquatch sightings on its website.
The group lists 14 reported sightings in the state going back to 1957. The most recent sighting listed was in October 2006 at Chadron State Park in northwest Nebraska, where three hikers reported seeing an “unusually tall” two-legged animal covered from head to toe in black fur.

I am of the opinion a lot of these events are hoaxes. In this instance, I would assume a prank played on a young driver. But, there may be dire consequences when some prankster is shot by a startled hunter. Alternatively, I also suspect some of these sightings are bears or other animals particularly when the eyes are described as glowing or reflective, an effect that does not occur in primates. Finally, it is entirely possible some of the sightings are indeed primates who have been abandoned or perhaps escaped and are simply surviving as best they are able.
Ah, but I was so much older then,

Keep in mind Meldrum was duped by Slick Rick Dyer back in 2008. So, yeah, he's probably a bit gun-shy now about tossing out his opinions without deeper investigation first.
It is interesting that he did mention..."He was was skeptical that Nebraska, given the lack of expansive wilderness, could support an undiscovered primate"
This makes me curious as to his thoughts (or willingness to admit to avoid alienating the bf community) on how expansive he currently believes an area needs to be to support (even conceal so unbelievably, incomprehensively well) this particular, huge, undiscovered primate.
It was he who was part of the scientific "thinktank" on sasquatch who believe only a very small percentage of reports are even true.
I've seen him investigate in the Canadian wilderness twice. I wonder what his map of possible sasquatch habitat would look like, be limited to?
