One does wonder if the first recorded attack on a human by a Bigfoot will be posted on YouTube after a human throws a rolled newspaper at the creature?
“Bison May Have Been Provoked. …”
July 26, 2010
Yellowstone National Parks officials are investigating whether a recent bson attack on a woman was provoked, either because she got too close, while videotaping the animal, or because something was thrown at it.
The woman, whose run in with the animal was caught on the video she was shooting at the time, was in violation of park rules requiring visitors to keep a safe distance from wildlife, officials said.
Cathy Hayes of Farr West, Utah was filming a bull bison last week, when the animal grew agitated and gave chase. Hayes has estimated that she and a friend were within 35 feet of the bison when it charged.
Hayes, who suffered injuries to her thigh, knee and foot, has recounted the encounter in harrowing terms [on national television].
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.
