Update: Alaska Cadborosaurus Footage

Regarding the news that Craig relayed earlier today here on Cryptomundo regarding the Hillstrands.

Paul Leblond was part of that principal photography in June.

He discussed the Caddy footage with the Hillstrands. They did not obtain the footage. It was obtained by a Washington state fisherman who also fishes in Alaska.

I will enquire into the fate of the footage, but I think it likely they will use it in another part of Deadliest Catch. Original Productions produces both shows and they are the new owners of the footage after acquiring it from the Washington man.

I’ll keep readers advised when I get some news.
