Helping “The Definitive Guide to Bigfoot”

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 1st, 2011

Loren Coleman and the International Cryptozoology Museum have been called upon to assist the following program with visuals. It looks to be a good series, involving on camera such interviewees as Jeff Meldrum, plus various Bigfooters and other academics. The History Channel and Discovery Canada program is called “Bigfoot: The Definitive Guide”  – a global survey of the so-called “Bigfoot phenomenon,” driven by a team of world class experts.

A team of top scientists come together with one goal to create the definitive guide to Bigfoot. Does the creature exist? And if it does where is it? And how can it survive without being detected?

Using a new interactive map the team has plotted more than 10,000 Bigfoot type sightings from around the world. These sightings are of an unidentified creature which walks on two legs and is covered in a thick layer of hair. Many of theses sightings date back over 100 years. With their expert knowledge of the natural world they are able to dismiss nearly 90% of the sightings, but what emerges is a series of global hotspots that cannot be explained which indicate that something is out there.

The team examines these global hotspots and searches for explanations including new theories that suggest we may have been looking for the wrong creature all along?

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.

    Mr. Coleman thank you for posting this, I can’t wait. I am a big fan of this particular creature. Dr. Meldrum also, WoW! I have been waiting for something like this. I am so excited. And I look forward to visiting your museum. Would love to place your website on my banner at my fight in May in Miami. Thank you. Crypto Rulez!

    “how can it survive without being detected?”

    Um, it’s being detected all the time. Just nobody believes anyone who’s said they saw one, so most who see one shut up about it. And mainstream science doesn’t follow up the copious evidence, thus giving the persuasive appearance of an animal that isn’t being detected.

    Hey, glad *I* could help too.

    To quote Bill the Cat, “Ack!”. I will be busy tonight…set DVR…everything is better now!

    Just watched it! Very good presentation and the retelling of events was fun for me. The Chapman family part sort of seemed inaccurate as compared to what I’ve read but that one aside I was pleased. I thought it interesting to see where they had boiled down places where they thought it most plausible for a group of these creatures to exist. Worth the watch!!

    I hate be negative, especially if Loren’s involved, but I just finished watching the special and i have to say I feel like I seen this all before. They begin the program saying that they’ve brought together a few experts that will “settle the question, once and for all”, BUT the program ends predictably, saying, “We may never know”. Lots of questions were posed and opinions were provided on both sides. Interesting circumstantial evidence was discussed, but nothing that I would call “definitive” came out of the study at all. Honest to goodness, the next time one of these programs comes on, I’m just going to watch the first and last five minutes and be done with it. I think the world of Loren since the first time I heard him on C2C, but it looks like these kinds of programs will all be the same until some idiot shoots one of these poor creatures and we have a carcass for all the world to see. I’m sorry, but some folks, even experts, sitting around a table and espousing their opinions, no matter how educated, is a futile exercise for the viewer. The only good that comes out of it is the very fact that it is being discussed at all.
