Bigfoot Sues State

From the “You can’t make this stuff up” department, via AP/Seacoastonline:

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — First there was a Bigfoot sighting. Now, there’s a Bigfoot suing.

A performance artist and amateur filmmaker who dressed as the mythical beast says New Hampshire park rangers didn’t have the right to kick him off a mountain where he had been scaring, or at least amusing, hikers while friends videotaped his antics.

Backed by the American Civil Liberties Union, Jonathan Doyle is suing the state…

Bigfoot in the Minnesota Northwoods?

Looks like a classic Bigfoot “sighting”. Loping gait, partially obscured, grainy image. Whoever set this up might just be paying homage.

Via TwinCities.com:

Tim Kedrowski and his sons, Peter and Casey, are not pushovers for Bigfoot stories, but a frame on a game trail camera set up on their hunting land north of Remer has left them in a quandary.

“To us, it’s very hard because we lean toward the skeptical type,” Kedrowski said in a telephone interview from his Rice, Minn., home.

But after checking with neighbors and any other hunters who might have been walking through the dense woods at 7:20 p.m. on the rainy night of Oct. 24, he said they couldn’t imagine what else the image could be. Tim said he considered ideas from a bear to a bow hunter in a fuzzy suit. But the arm and hand couldn’t be a bear’s, or its upright gait.

Bigfoot’s Museum: Loren Coleman on his new cabinet of cryptozoology curiosities

From BoingBoing:

For half a century, my friend Loren Coleman has been obsessed with unusual animals, many of which may not exist at all. Loren is a cryptozoologist. He studies hidden and unknown animals, and the mythology, urban legends, folklore, and culture surrounding them. Sure, Bigfoot, Yeti, and Nessie are the big names, but there are countless others — the Jersey Devil, the Thunderbird, the Mothman, to name just a few. Loren has written more than a dozen books on the subject and posts daily at the Cryptomundo blog, all from a firmly Fortean perspective. Does he actually “believe” in Sasquatch or sea monsters? No, because belief, he has said, “belongs in the providence of religion.” He just tries to keep an open mind in order to accept or deny evidence based on examination and investigation.Over the years, Loren has amassed an astounding collection of cryptozoology curiosities, artifacts, and oddities, from toys, beer cans, and t-shirts emblazoned with one cryptid or another to scientific specimens, plaster casts, and movie props.

Bigfoot Attracts Crowds

PORTLAND, Maine (Wireless Flash) — Even after all these years, Bigfoot still knows how to draw in a
crowd.

Loren Coleman, a leading cryptozoologist, just opened a new museum in Maine dedicated to curious creatures like Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, and the Yeti.

The International Cryptozoology Museum is housed in the back of The Green Hand Bookshop. It features Coleman’s personal collection of unusual crypto artifacts including an eight-foot Bigfoot created by an artist, Bigfoot poop and hair samples, and skulls of other mystery animals.

Though most visitors inquire about Bigfoot, Coleman’s goal is to keep folks “open-minded” about various cryptids. He gives daily guided tours and presents evidence to visitors proving that these weird creatures really do exist.

Coleman is happy to have his collection in a public space since for years he ran the museum out
of his own home. Now that his eight-foot Bigfoot has moved out, he has much more room to entertain.… Read the rest
