Dozens Of 20-Inch-Tall, Dreadlocked People Spotted In Indonesian Forest

Perhaps heightening the mystery is the mind-bending possibility that Indonesia many thousands of years ago may have been home to a species of little people distinct from humans. Have they been hiding? Via the Jakarta Post:

Rangers patrolling the Way Kambas National Park (TNWK) in Lampung claim to have sighted dozens of pygmies in a number of areas across the park. Allegedly the pygmies sport dreadlocks, measure no more than 50 centimeters tall and do not wear clothing.

“The first sighting was on March 17…When the rangers were about to approach them, they immediately hid behind trees and vanished. They ran very fast” said TNWK spokesman Sukatmoko.

He added that several rangers patrolling the park claimed the pygmies were seen moving to the PT Nusantara Tropical Fruit (NTF) plantation. “Apparently, many fruit trees are grown in the NTF plantation area. The pygmies might have entered the plantation for food,” said Sukatmoko.

On March 20, patrolling rangers sighted the pygmies again, but this time from further away and for a shorter time. To record their presence, the TNWK center has installed surveillance cameras in the forest.

    Never believe anything coming from Indonesia, (including Barack Soetoro-Obama)! Jakarta’s press is good evidence for that book, Do Asians Know How To Think?

    “The first sighting was on March 17″ – Well, obviously we’re dealing with Indonesian Leprechauns …

    disinfo, or even if not, of course size can vary for different breeds, but humans are known for their anomalous head-to-body ratio and wouldn’t evolving smaller mean evolving dumber?
