An administrator with the University of New Mexico is under fire following revelations that he used taxpayer money to fund his Bigfoot research.In an explosive investigation by TV station KRQE, it was revealed that the executive director of UNM's Gallup campus, Dr. Christopher Dyer, had used "discretionary funds" from the university to finance 'Bigfoot-related activities.'http://krqe.com/2016/10/31/taxpayers-on-the-hook-for-unm-bigfoot-expedition/
UNM shelled out thousands of dollars for advertising, meals for the guest speakers, airfare, hotels and per diem. Self-professed Bigfoot expert Dr. Jeff Meldrum was handed a $1000 honorarium plus expenses
Even though there were no students or faculty on the expedition, UNM paid for everything. There were hotels in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, meals, and mileage. Taxpayers also paid $140 for seven pairs of snowshoes for the field trip participants.
“Well you know if you want to spend the day hiking in the Sandia’s you go for it. I would just say don’t use the public’s money,” Ben Radford said. “The track record of success for Bigfoot searches is exactly zero. It’s not one percent. It’s not 10 percent. Not 30 percent. Exactly zero. So there has never been a successful Bigfoot search.”
KRQE News 13 asked State Senator George Munoz, who lives in Gallup, if he had spoken to Dr. Dyer about his passion for Bigfoot.“No I haven’t (spoken to him). I don’t know if I can keep a straight face. And then ask him why he’s spending this amount of money on something that doesn’t really exist,” Senator Munoz said.
Senator Munoz, who serves on the State Legislative Finance Committee, has a message for Dr. Dyer.“Pay back the money,” Munoz said.
But of course.....it's not about the money. I is a quakin in my boots waiting on the internet police joe.
Seems like a fair effort at contributing to some level of honest research whilst bringing attention to the subject. Who cares about a couple of thousand dollars? I certainly don't, ha ha ha!! Things like that cost money to arrange, simples.At the end of the day, the University of New Mexico attempted "Bigfoot Research". Sign of the times! : )
Seems like a waste of taxpayer money. The university and State agree. And the university attempted nothing. A lone prof. did. And he now has a few thousand to pay back,while finding nothing.
If Dr. Dyer is required to pay back those expenses I am curious if Dr. Meldrum and Mr. Kryder will refund the honorarium given to them. I can well understand the travel and lodging expenses not being refunded but giving back the honorarium would be a professional courtesy and decent thing to do.That is - if your not in it for the money.

If you think that the subject is not worthy of research, and that preventing any professor from a University taking an interest in the matter is necessary, with the funds that accompany arranging such research being a waste of tax payer's money, then sure! If you realise that this subject is looked upon with enthusiasm by the very best primatologists and at he very least seen with optimism by the very best conservationists on the planet, realise that more and more people have a genuine anthropological interest in the subject, and that some effort at broadening the ideas of some of the most prominent researchers is important... Then a few thousand dollars is nothing. If the "State and University" object, that's typical of a majority of the public that scoff at a subject they know nothing about. Scientists & authors have always toured seminars for their hard work, and if a professor from a University wants to arrange this (however outspoken in his opinion), then this is evidence of such ideas becoming more accepted. The finances to fund more research aren't coming from anywhere else, so Meldrum sure as heck isn't gonna say no.
