OSS Dr Meldrum talks Asian Bigfoot

A new documentary coming out next month will include Meldrums work on
the Vietnamese version of Bigfoot

Người Rừngs ("forest man") is a creature said to inhabit Vietnam, reputedly similar to the bigfoot, sometimes also known as "forest people". It is described as being approximately six feet tall and covered with hair except in the knees, the soles of the feet, the hands, and the face. The hair ranges in color from gray to brown to black. The creature walks on two legs and has been reported both solitary and moving in small groups. The creature is most often sighted foraging for food from fruits and leaves to langers and even flying foxes.

Two Người Rừngs were reportedly captured by tribesmen near Dak Lak Province in 1971. In 1974 a North Vietnamese general, Hoang Minh Thao, requested an expedition to find evidence of the creatures, but it was unsuccessful.[1]

Cryptozoologist Loren Coleman believes that the Nguoi Rung are a surviving population of Homo erectus or Neanderthal.[2]

Professor Tran Hong Viet is a researcher of Người Rừng who in 1982 claimed to have located a footprint measuring 28x16cm.
