Investigator claims to have evidence of Cannock Chase Bigfoot

Stories of a Bigfoot-like creature in and around the Cannock Chase area have endured for centuries.
Situated in rural Staffordshire, England, Cannock Chase has gained something of a reputation for being home to all manner of weird and wonderful things, with visitors reporting everything from UFOs and paranormal phenomena to sightings of strange creatures wandering through the trees.

Among them - tales of a Bigfoot-like beast that date back as far as the 19th-Century.

One local investigator - Lee Brickley - has made it his mission to get to the bottom of the mystery and now he believes he has found conclusive evidence of a large bipedal creature in the area.

"Loads of people now message me regularly asking for updates," he told The Daily Star.

"I got an anonymous email from a man saying he had been flying a remote control plane over Gentleshaw Common at Cannock Chase who said he'd seen something unusual."
"With his description of the location, I went out there straight away and found the footprint."

"I was astounded... I'd never seen a footprint that large in my life, and it was clearly not made using a mould or cast... I realized the Cannock Chase Bigfoot was more than just a myth."

During his investigations, Brickley has also found what he described as 'claw marks' on a tree near to a dead deer that he says had been killed by some sort of carnivorous animal.

He has even seen what he thinks was the creature itself on at least one occasion.

"It definitely moved more like an animal than a man, and it was easily seven feet tall," he said. "I tried to run after it, but it was too quick and disappeared into a dense section of trees."

As things stand, however, no definitive proof of such a creature has ever been found.

Dr. Jeff Meldrum is a Full Professor of Anatomy & Anthropology at Idaho State University (since 1993). He teaches human anatomy in the graduate health professions programs. His research encompasses questions of vertebrate evolutionary morphology generally, primate locomotor adaptations more particularly, and especially the emergence of modern human bipedalism. I find it highly unlikely that he is going to waste his one lifetime perpetrating what he knows to be a hoax. And he is just one name I threw out in response to a question I was given. I am sure he is competent to defend himself. H... [More]

Your psycophantic rambles are wasted. He has posted here. His posts would indicate that he doesn't know his butthole from a hole in the ground. Results speak. Meldrum has produced decades of nothing.

Don't do your usual avoidance and redirection. Just answer the questions that @ChrLzsasked of you.

I did answer that Jeff Meldrum is not going to become a personal research project of mine especially for the type of personality that is only interested in attacking. I'm a little too smart for the obvious modus operandi that tries to demand infinite detail into infinity. You can see Meldrum's qualifications yourself, so I seriously respect what he has to say; the layman's takeaway version.

Here I'll make it easy for you. Just answer these questions. Please post your answers in numbered fashion so we know which question you're answering. Thank you in advance. The questions again are as follows; 1. Did you know that Meldrum has over 300 footprint casts in his Bigfootery Collection? (or is it 'BigFoolery'?) 2.Of those 300, how many has he rejected as fake, and on what grounds? 3. Would you agree that maybe those numbers suggest Meldrum is more interested in selling books, than he is in applying scientific rigour..? 4.In regard to his Bigfoot 'research', how many reports has he h...

And I answered to look to Meldrum to defend himself (which I am sure he can do quite competently). It's not my job or interest to make his work my lengthy research project. I consider only the layman's takeaway of what he says as I consider him a highly credible expert.

That is a weak response. The questions are posed to you. Fine, you either won't or can't answer. Just say you won't or can't answer. Very telling once again to the overall topic in general for those who "believe".

Geez folks, this Meldrum fellow wasn't even part of the OP article. It might be interesting if Mr. Meldrum had studied the OP article story, but it appears he has not. So it's really moot and even derailing to carry on debating about him in this thread. Let's leave off that. But there is something more to the OP for us to hash out a little. Lee Brickley- the man named in the OP article. Mr. Brickley has published a few books about Cannock Chase covering spooky like ghosts, BEKs, Werewolves, pig-men, UFOs, and bigfoot. His blog has a goodly handful and few of posts going back to 2013- perhaps ... [More]

Exactly, the oldest belief game out there.
