In the United States today is President’s Day, which for many means a day off from work and for school children in some parts of the country, the beginning of a one-week vacation break. But, of course, it is about celebrating the days of birth of the USA’s former Presidents, especially of George Washington. But […]

Craig Heinselman contributes a followup to my blog on “Maine’s Mystery Moose,” he calls “King Moose.” Moose, the largest living member of the deer family, is a common icon in New England, especially Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire.

Latest Update: The Foot of Bigfoot?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on February 18th, 2007

Is this story turning into another Sasquatch Conspiracy? When the foot was initially found, it was thought to be human.

Happy New Year of The Cryptid Pig

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 18th, 2007
