Out Of The Ordinary: Weird Virginia

Posted by: Loren Coleman on June 29th, 2007

In celebration and dedicated to my birthstate (Norfolk, Virginia: July 12, 1947; yep, my father was in the U. S. Navy)….here’s a June 29, 2007 review of Weird Virginia, a new book by Jeff Bahr, Troy Taylor and Loren Coleman.

Weird Virginia

As some have told me, I did come in with the era of modern “flying saucers,” as well as with a wave of Sasquatch, Bigfoot and Skunk Ape sightings in British Columbia, Missouri, and Florida, during 1947.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
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.

    Yes Loren, a very happy 60th b’day-and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for such an enjoyable site as Cyrptomundo, where all of us Cryptonuts can “gather around the fire”(OK, ok, the glow of the computer screen) and share our fascination of what might be out there. Again, a happy and healthy one!

    Sorry I missed your birthday Loren, But I do wish you Good Luck, Good Fortune & Good Health for the upcoming year, as we all get older.
    As for wierd Virginia, YES, many mysteries exist in Virginia, especially those of cougars & black panthers. At least 1 cougar has been roaming western Albermarle County & the town of Crozet for 3 years. It shows NO sign of being a captive released. Her interest must be due to large deer herd in Shenandoah National Park. A photo of the puma exists, which distinctly shows her approaching nearby woods.
    Yet Virginia G&IF, as do all eastern wildlife & game agencies refuses to acknowledge any documented proof of their presence. Keep up the good work Loren & keep disputing science & their lack of interest on crptozoology animals.
    NOT all is black & white in science, there is a definite GREY area. We know.
