Larry Battson is our guest. He is a long-time wildlife educator and a long-time creative Bigfoot researcher. On June 9, 2009, Larry gave a lecture to the US Fish & Wildlife Service on his research on the Bigfoot/Sasquatch.
For 40 plus years, he has traveled across the country, educating all ages about our natural world. He has lectured for the Audubon Society, Explorer’s Club, and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.
One of his proudest moments is the presentations he has done for thousands of schools and countless lectures with his animal family along with Jim Fowler, star of Mutual of Omaha’s WILD KINGDOM. It was over breakfast in Columbus, Georgia, that Jim was telling Larry about his recent trip to Russia to do a special with ABC Television on the Russian brown bear.
All the Russian guides wanted to talk about was their sightings of the Russian Sasquatch. Inspired by their discussion, Larry developed an exhibit on the Bigfoot/Sasquatch for a major outdoor show in Cleveland, Ohio.
Which included having the noted Sasquatch investigator and writer John Green come to Cleveland for the event. John and Larry would establish a friendship that lasted until John’s passing.
Later, John Green and Bob Gimlin would be guests on Larry’s Blog Talk Show, “WILD WORLD.” This is the only time that the two appeared together in an interview. John Green said that it was the most important moment since the Patterson-Gimlin film in Bigfoot research.
