A Maine Bigfoot hunting group, lead by Mike Merchant, recovered the following 14″ long footcast made by what Merchant feels might have been a Bigfoot. It was cast in a rough, rural area near Burbank, north of Moosehead, Maine, two weeks ago, early in July 2012. Only one print was found due to the terrain not being conductive to other prints. No others were seen; if they would have seen others, tracking would have occurred. The cast broke because Merchant was low on casting materials.
Thanks to Bill Brock, also of the team, for sharing it with the International Cryptozoology Museum on July 21, 2012. Photos by 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.
