Animal Planet has posted “Interview With Loren Coleman: A Q&A with the fans of Lost Tapes.”
Questions which were sent in by viewers are answered. I’ll pass along one such exchange.
Jose Ramirez: Should we be living in fear of certain creatures metioned in Lost Tapes?
Loren Coleman: I think that people that are not used to being in wilderness areas, in the woods, in the wild, should always be careful. Wildlife are wild, and animals can become very violent whether they’re a cryptid or known animal. So yes, I think that caution in wooded areas and forests, as well as in places like deserts and the mountains: people need to be careful whenever they’re out of their regular environment.
(Readers should be aware that my answers were transcribed and therefore some typos exist, e.g. “temporal” instead of what I said, “temperate,”)
The Occult Section published an “Interview with Loren Coleman”, conducted by Jason Stroming.
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.
