Caterpillar Bears, Bulldog Bears, and God Bears – Ursine Cryptids of Kamchatka

Posted by: Karl Shuker on May 1st, 2013

As will be revealed here in the following ShukerNature post of mine, however, he was also a blatant hoaxer – confirmed by the curious case of New Guinea’s non-existent penguins, and kookaburra.  “Pierre Sonnerat’s publications include Voyage à la Nouvelle-Guinée (1776), documenting an expedition that he […]
