Bigfooter Allen Foster takes a peek at the latest episode about reports of hairy hominoids in Malaysia on Destination Truth:
The “team” went to Malaysia to find Bigfoot.
The leader, Josh Gates, interviewed the Malaysia’s leading Bigfoot researcher, Vincent Chow.
Then they went to a local town near the last reported sighting and interviewed witnesses. Off into the jungle they went to where the latest sighting was. The team found a possible footprint and made a cast of it.
The footprint was irregular in shape but did look like a possible print.
They had one of their night vision cameras get knocked over and when they went to the location of the camera, they were able to hear and record a low “growling” noise.
They only spent one night in the jungle researching. They were not allowed to leave Malaysia with the orginal cast and had to make a copy of it.
Once they got back to the U.S., they had the curator of the Los Angeles zoo, Micheal Dee, listen to the recording of the growl or the “droney noise” as he put it, and he couldn’t identify it.
They then went to Pocatello, Idaho, and had Dr. Jeffery Meldrum examine the copy of the footprint cast. He said that it could possibly be one of three things. One, a pothole that happened to have formed in the shape of a foot. Two, a super “imposition” of a commonly know animal. such as a rhino. Or three, it may represent a “plantigrade pentadactyl” foot, a flat five toed foot.
They then reviewed their findings and continued on to their next story about a Loch Ness type creature in Argentina.Allen Foster, Redding, California.
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.
