Everyone is talking about the new video out of British Columbia. Even “Page Six.” Here’s a snippet from today’s Canadian version of the gossip column:
A new video has hit the web showing two brothers being caught off-guard by a dark humanoid creature in a forest near Tofino, B.C. Was it a Sasquatch? Was there any Kokanee nearby? The sightings still happen year after year. Fact or fiction? Page Six was out and about to ask folks if they believe there are Sasquatches e-like creatures — roaming undetected throughout the vast forests of Canada and the U.S.
Den William, 38: “Fiction. They’re really just a bunch of hairy girls from Nelson.”
Chloe Bennett, 23: “Not real. You gotta see ’em to believe it and I’ve never seen one.”
Dave Bennett, 38: “Absolutely real. There’s millions of acres and lots of sightings. They’re still hard to find, there’s so much territory.”
Mark Miller, 37: “Fact. There’s a guy in Idaho who recently came up with a bunch of scientific evidence saying there’s something out there. It wouldn’t be the first time science said something wasn’t true when it was.”
Tyler Sedgwick, 36: “Yes. Man might have been an extension of this. We might have evolved from larger beasts.”
Crystal Sedgwick, 32: “Yes. I just want to believe something different is out there. Anything is possible.”
Louise Rough, 33: “It’s a possibility. It’s the unknown and anything is possible. There’s an element of mystery to it.”
Karen Harvich, 43: “Real. It may be the last remnants of a pre-historic man or an ape. We like those stories. Why the heck not believe it?” Chris Gerristen, Page Six, Calgary Sun, March 27, 2007
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.
