This Day In Bigfoot History: 60 Years Ago Today...

December 3rd, 1953: Rene Dahinden was working for a dairy farmer in the province of Alberta, Canada, near Calgary. He was having dinner with his boss and they heard a CBC news report about the London Daily Mail newspaper sponsoring a search for the Abominable Snowman, or Yeti. Rene said to his boss, "Wouldn't it be something to go on a search like this?" His boss told him, "Hell, you don't have to go that far. They have something like that in British Columbia." Dahinden described it as someone turning a switch and he was one of the first in that era to really bring about awareness of this large, hairy hominid or hominoid in British Columbia, and he inspired John Green to look into it and John became the main chronicler of the phenomenon. Hats off to that farmer, Dahinden and to John Green for their part in making us aware of these magnificent beings called Bigfoot or Sasquatch.
