On Tuesday, August 8, 2006, at 10:55 p.m., a local law enforcement evidence technician reports to dispatch that something is hitting the walls of his trailer. He wants an officer to investigate. He is not able to do it himself as he has his family in the trailer with him. The officer arrives at the trailer and finds nothing unusual.
This incident happens about a fourth of a mile east of Sharps Corner, which is about 30 to 40 miles northeast of Pine Ridge, South Dakota.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.
