The Passing Of A Legend - Bobbie Short

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 :


  1. This is sad. Her website is awesome. A large collections of stories is there.

  2. Great blog..I love to read all your stories here..

  3. Greatness has passed. The legend will live on. Few touch
    lives the way she did.

  4. May Miss Bobbie rest in peace and condolences to her family and friends.

  5. Bigfoot Encounters was one of my favorites.

    Bobbie Short will be missed. Peace to her.

    In my early days on the 'Net I remember finding her site. I do believe that I read every report she posted. It's certainly a valuable database for future researchers.

    Now that she has left the 3D world we know of - May she live on in the next.

  6. Bobbie's site is by far one of the top achievements involving the Bigfoot/Sasquatch legacy. Her work,will live on,and will no doubt continue to inspire future researchers,like it has everyone here,along with myself,and it will still for many,many years ahead. My prayers go out to her family for their loss,for she was one of a kind.

  7. A sad loss to her family and the Bigfoot research community as a whole. Tempus fugit

  8. Most folks in Sasquatchery are legends in their own mind...Bobbie Short was/is legendary in her time...Rest In Peace...Dear

    live and let live...
