I come to you with a heavy heart. The Bigfoot world has lost a true legend Bobbie Short. Bobbie passed away last week (05/16/2013) from a food born infection. Bobbie will be greatly missed. She was a pioneer in Bigfoot research. Her website Bigfoot Encounters was and is still ahead of its time. This site is the standard by which all others are judged.
I was fortunate to call Bobbie a friend and I will miss her. She was always encouraging and a wealth of knowledge. I always enjoyed our conversations and sometimes our lively debates. She was a good soul and a beautiful person.
Below is announcement of her passing from her grandson Chris Millet :
