This week’s MonsterQuest episode has now screened, and it was a return to Sasquatch territory. It is actually MQ’s last episode to be produced (even though the penultimate to air). What did you think?
Boy, that one guy sure could track!
This episode looked at the possibility of family units of Sasquatch. One researcher, Jamie Avalos, has encountered a number of prints and made track casts (images above, courtesy of Jamie Avalos) and while smaller than the average Sasquatch print, Avalos suggested that these may represent evidence of juvenile Sasquatch. Avalos interview found here.
Accompanying Avalos on this exploration was Dr. Jeff Meldrum (at right) of Idaho State University, who joined in the search for new evidence and compared the tracks as well as food sources.
Rounding out the team, was a special appearance by wildlife consultant and biologist John Mionczynski (at left, who appeared in the pilot episode for MonsterQuest, “Giganto: The Real King Kong”). John took a realistic approach, detailing how the prints are well within the range of humans.
In addition to an expedition, fresh new video evidence (from 1991) taken by family who were alongside Mono Lake, California was analyzed. The analysis was performed by Stutchman Forensic Laboratories.
MQ pre-released on YouTube for Cryptomundo the short clips that show the original footage, and the one which has been stabilized by Stutchman Forensic Laboratories.
Maybe it is not too late to Save MonsterQuest?
My sincere thanks to exclusive information from MQ Executive Producer Will Yates regarding the March 17th episode!
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. 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.
