Tonight is the evening of October 11th, when there is a Full Hunter’s Moon. Perhaps it is appropriate that this moon and its lunacy would deliver some news of the hunting variety as the moon appeared on the horizon.
The 14-year-old hunter in Pike County, Illinois who said he was attacked by a panther on Sunday, October 2nd, has admitted that he lied. He fell from his tree stand, and made up the story about the cat attack because he was afraid his parents won’t let him hunt alone again if they knew the truth. Source.
Thanks to John Winterbauer for the update.
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.
