Due to my recent appearances with the nearly 3 ft tall resin sculpture of Bigfoot (which I take to my talks and signings), several people have written in asking where I obtained it.

I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ll share the details again, with some cautionary warnings.
This display item is called the “Bigfoot, the Garden Yeti” Sculpture©, produced by Design Toscano.
The statue is 19½” W x 19″ D x 28½” H, weighs 12 pounds, and is valued at $98.95 (plus shipping). They are so popular, I am thinking about having a couple for sale in the International Cryptozoology Museum.
However, while they are an outdoor item, I do not recommend they be left outside, as they are stolen quite easily.
Also, I must warn female Bigfoot hunters: watch out if you venture too closely to this Bigfoot sculpture. I have noticed, fans love to have their pictures taken with it. But seriously, you have to be careful when photographing or being photographed with this item, when women are near it, for obvious reasons. The Bigfoot appears to have a mind of its own. Photographic evidence shared.
Some stories do have happy endings.
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.
