In an article entitled Johor Tourism in Malaysia waits for windfall from international interest in ‘bigfoot’, the BFRO is quoted as offering the following advice to the Johor National Parks Corporation (JNPC):

"Even a fairy large expedition, if held over a short duration, is not likely to succeed, " said Bigfoot Field Research Organization from the US, which has instead urged authorities to respond quicker to new sightings by jungle inhabitants, Orang Asli. (spelling corrected by yours truly)

For a group that is doing just that, holding 4 day, 3 night expeditions for paying customers, the BFRO (Matt Moneymaker) seems to be  contradicting their (his) statement to the JNPC. Of course, on the BFRO website, they do offer this advice for the Malaysians.

  1. CryptoInformant responds:

    funny cartoon!

  2. fuzzy responds:

    Good collection of informative articles from knowledgeable people with, admittedly, a commercialized approach to the research… (but so what?)

    I think the “fast response” technique is exactly applicable to the thick jungle environment in Malaysia, assuming they have small, properly equipped teams of trained researchers ready to go at a moment’s notice…

    Lots of info appearing daily here on Crypto, just what we need! Please keep it up.
