Crocodilians found in Massachusetts are nothing new, as evidenced by this file photo from that state.
Wildlife officials are on the lookout for an alligator that is rumored to have taken up residence in a Massachusetts pond. Department of Conservation and Recreation officials searched Silver Lake in the Breakheart Reservation park in Saugus on Thursday, July 28, 2011, after two alligators sightings, S.J. Port, spokeswoman for the DCR, told the Boston Globe. No alligators were found.
Port said one sighting was reported on Monday, July 25th, and another sighting was reported in June.
You might wish to avoid swimming in Silver Lake for awhile.
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.
