Survivorman’s got Sasquatch — and the fact that he may live right here in Alberta — on his mind.
In fact, according to Calgary’s Todd Standing, the head of research group Sylvanic, Les Stroud has been in talks with him for years on organizing a expedition to find the beast of many names but most commonly referred to as Bigfoot or Sasquatch.
Stroud is a popular Canadian TV figure known as Survivorman who’s earned famed for his willingness to journey alone into remote corners of the world armed with only a video camera and keen set of survival skills.
Now, he will team up with Standing in hopes of luring out supposed colonies of unidentified primates living between Banff and Kootenay National Park as well as in northern Montana.
“It’s been a hard sell on his behalf, but it’s all greenlit and we’re going to get it done,” said Standing, who claims he’s come within 65 metres of Bigfoot-like creatures and has devoted his life to validating claims the species exists.
