With the recent passing of a researcher and mentor in the Bigfoot Realm, it's apparent the effect Bobbie Short had on many in the field. I hope that other researchers come to realize the imprint they leave behind by their motivations, actions, and words. One of her dear friends sums it up nicely here -
The First Lady of Sasquatchery...a pioneering champion of respectful observation/No Kill research.
Her site ...Bigfoot Encounters...is the compendium of Sasquatchery...free to all, free of pop-ups, thousands of hours spent compiling and researching, selflessly devoted to understanding the enigma of Sasquatch...she didn't suffer fools, thugs or nonsense.
Sasquatchery was her passion, not a cottage industry. Unlike her detractors, sniping after her passing...Roberta E. Short was the real deal...not a pompous wannabe.
We argued, cussed and discussed, often agreeing to disagree...I loved her shoulder, uncommon common sense, knowledge and wit...and I know she loved me.
Rest in peace...Baby Doll
live and let live...
