Just in from the photo op right down the street:
Reportedly, they may disrobe further, closer to 1:00 pm, but I had cryptozoology to get back to at the museum!
Famed writer Joe Hill, who is Stephen King’s son, dropped by the International Cryptozoology Museum, yesterday. We are closed on Mondays-Tuesdays, and hopefully, he’ll stop by again for a personalized tour. He reportedly enjoyed the Bigfoot outfront, from his twit last night.
I want to mention a bit of news (and possible traffic congestion?) regarding anyone’s visit to the International Cryptozoology Museum on Wednesday, March 10th. If you are near the museum today, between 11 am and one, please be aware that PETA will be conducting a demonstration not too far from the ICM, at the corner of Congress St. & High St., at high noon to one pm. (Forecast today: Sunny, 50 degrees, breezy, with no meatballs, please.)
Reportedly, PETA members will be protesting by being in a bed in “nothing more than their underwear.” From past events, sometimes it turns out to be less than underwear.
With all of yesterday’s publicity about the Bigfoot in Leeds centered on the ICM, and now today’s PETA protesters, media coverage and onlookers, this could start out as an exciting beginning for March 10th!
The protest has nothing to do with the ICM’s Bigfoot! Being a vegan for some two decades myself, I do not approve of shooting, harming or eating Bigfoot ~ or wearing furs, either!
However, if any cryptids are harmed during the protest, I’ll post the photos immediately!!
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.
