The footage of the tigers was featured in the documentary, Lost Land of the Tiger, which was shown in three parts this week on BBC One.
Tigers have recently been filmed in the mountains of Bhutan, giving the first solid evidence that the endangered species can survive at high altitudes. Camera traps set by the BBC, which has been capturing footage for months, has recorded a male tiger and a female tiger at an altitude of approximately 13,450 feet. The male was seen marking territory, indicating that the pair are not just passing through, which was thought to be the case with earlier evidence of tigers in the area.
Thanks to Miguel, who forwarded this news tip and said: “We now know what happened to the Yeti: he was eaten by tigers! ;)”
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.
