Bigfoot Contactees

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. 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. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    It`s my opinion that these -Bigfoot contactees -are just plain ol’ people with overactive imaginations. Seeing what they want to see. Hearing what they want to hear.
    I don’t know it it’s just for the attention or what but I simply don’t buy into it. For someone to have encounter after encounter and we still don’t have the creature catalogued-well to me it’s more fantasy than fact. I have sent 22 years looking for this thing and have only actually seen it twice. I have even been present when -contactee Beckjord -was shown a photograph and in it he pointed out 3 Bigfoot creatures. Well the photo was taken in my back yard and there was nothing there but he kept referring to shadows as the elusive animal. No sir I don’t buy any of it, but then again this is just my opinion.

    Having spent the preponderance of my eighty-three years in the woods as a prowler/hunter, one would think that I might have seen some hint of something to indicate the possible presence of Bigfoot. Sad to report, such is not the case. My forays have included: Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, northern California, and the only place that I have observed a few things passing strange has been the Hockomock Swamp.

    I am forced to conclude that a mild mental illness afflicts more people than I had heretofore suspected; mercifully, it is of a relatively benign nature.

    If memory serves me right Mary Green and Alice sent a sample of hair Alice collected to Dr. Fahrenbach from her farm. He examined it and found it to be consistent with his other samples.

    So at least in this one contactee case Bigfoot was present on her farm at least one time. My best,

    Maybe Bigfoot’s smart enough to only have frequent encounters with people who won’t be trusted by others. I don’t mean this as an insult, but the ol’ Sasquatch has got to have some card(s) up his “sleeve” to stay hidden from humanity for so long.

    As for the “Psychic Sasquatch”, the basic scenario of Sixed Sensed Sasquatches {say five times fast} is interesting, maybe they can “smell intent” as it were. As for Lapseritis, he goes from saying he wants no credit, to one day everyone will know i was right in the same video. that and all the female sasquatch want to reproduce with him really make him sound like a nutjob. oh and the portals to another dimension that they use to give rocks to him, that too

  5. shovethenos responds:

    Since the Bigfoot phenomenon has not been accepted by mainstream science yet and remains on the fringes it will tend to attract more than its share of shall we say imaginative people. This will always be used by skeptics to try toi discredit the whole phenomenon, but that’s when you have to point to things like the hundreds or thousands of footprint casts forming a very pronounced Gaussian (bell curve) distribution.

    It’s amazing how all those hundreds of footprint hoaxsters in dozens of states/provinces have been carefully coordinating their hoaxing over the past five+ decades so that their work reflects a pronounced Gaussian distribution. I can hear it now: “Jethro, this is Hank from Ohio, we need more 16 inch prints to fill out that tail of the distribution, you need to get carving and start leaving tracks in your part of Florida by the fall. Good work on those 23 inch prints last summer.”

  6. LAShiel responds:

    Why must we spend so much time labeling each other? The term “contactee” harkens back to the UFO contactees of the 1950s — people like George Adamski, who claimed to have lengthy encounters with benevolent beings from other worlds. For most people, the very term “contactee” will bring to mind sci-fi B movies from that era. Perhaps this is the intention.

    I don’t know if all the people who claim to have had multiple, lengthy interactions with hairy hominids actually have or not. But neither do I know they haven’t. The fact is, people who live in the woods are far more likely to see woods-dwelling creatures than city folk who venture into a state park once in awhile.

  7. r.lee responds:

    Bigfoot UFO Contactees can be compared to abductees in some ways. Abductees, certainly the Contactees from the 1950s, are an embarrassment to a lot of UFO researchers.

    I think more so when it comes to Bigfoot research. Researchers have a hard enough time being rtaken seriously; to have science involved, etc. Who the hell needs bizarre, high strangeness tales of UFOs, weird beings, (other than BF that is) telepathic communications, etc? No one, hardly, is going to have any patience with that stuff.

    But, it’s a murky, interesting, and strange realm when you actually start talking to people who’ve had these experiences. Once you meet them, talk with them, compare their experiences with others, things aren’t so easily marginalized to the lunatic pile. Wish it could be so, it’d make things a lot easier.

  8. Alex responds:

    Unfortunately there are a lot of comparisons to alien abductees, which, even on Art Bell’s show, are ubiquitous.
    I recently encountered some folks that claim they have seen cougars in the area of Wawa, Ontario. These are avid hunters and hikers etc. The local Ministry of natural resources ‘experts’ don’t believe it and require further proof. And this is for cougars.
    After 20 years of on and off hunting and trapping all over Ontario, I have only smelled what I believe is what we are looking for twice.
    I hope the contactees can lead us to a fine specimen.
