Sorry, but I have to pass this along, fyi.
“dominick perez” – of Yarwen/baby Bigfoot infamy – writes on Sun 9/17/2006, saying “ATTN LOREN COLEMAN” – (with his profanities deleted):
post a message on your site and tell your loser readers to stop hounding my tenant. these a******s show up drunk all hours of the night causing trouble. well, the one who showed up this morning felt my wrath. he’s in st. joseph’s regional medical center with two busted legs. an address on your site is my rental property. the tenant is an old lady with nothing to do with this. you rejected my generous offer, and know you have caused me trouble.i am telling you one more time: tell these losers to stop showing up there, or i give you my word i will track you down and hold you to account personally. that is not a threat it is a promise. remember i am in law enforcement and i can easliy track you down. you’ve been warned m**********r!!
Several things must be noted: Cryptomundo does not condone any form of harassment or violence, although we do not assume that any of the above is “real.” Considering that there is no proof that Mr. Perez has anything to do with Bigfoot studies, but may be anything from a cryptopoacher (for seizing this site’s interest) to a possible hoaxer, there is no reason to bother anyone that lives at the address Mr. Perez uses on his internet accounts. Secondly, the address cannot be found on any Cryptomundo blog, period. Mr. Perez, who lied about his name not being real when it was first given, is the original source of his own address as it is easily found across the internet in his own self-created profiles tied to his name and businesses.
Frankly, I know many law enforcement officers, and none that I have known or have met would ever make this “not a threat it is a promise” kind of comment, on the heels of saying they had just given a person “two busted legs.”
I post this here for the public record.
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.
