Filmed: 15 Cadborosauruses?

Posted by: Loren Coleman on August 15th, 2010


Breaking news has surfaced that photographic evidence of Caddy will be broadcast on television in September 2010.

Here is the hint that has surfaced:

Jason Walton, cryptozoologist and head of the current search for recognition and classification of the legendary creature, says video footage of the creature is set to air next month on the Discovery Channel.

“There’s a guy up in Alaska who filmed about 15 (Cadborosauruses) swimming across an Alaskan Bay,” Walton said, adding that the video was shot from a boat and is close-up to the subjects.

That’s correct. Fifteen.

What will the footage show? Moose? Otters? Dolphins? Sea Otters? Beaked Whales? Orcas? Seals? Sea birds? Sea Serpents? Relic prehistoric pinnipeds? Ancient whales? Sea apes? Cadborosauruses?

Otters in water do some curious things, of course. Remember, even twice a day, Joe Nickell might be correct.

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.

    15? Wow. I’d be happy with just one Cadborosaurus.

    Loren, As you are one of the foremost cryptozoologists in the world have they asked you to comment on the film for this program?

    In my home the “has Loren Coleman commented on this sighting” test is strictly in force.

  2. red_pill_junkie responds:

    Exciting news!

    But I can already hear the rants of the skeptics, questioning why they intend to show this footage on a TV program, instead of submitting it to a credited zoological institution —along with a paper for peer-review.

  3. springheeledjack responds:

    I am skeptically hopeful. Am marking the date on my calendar and hope it’s not just another bunch of hokum…or USO’s.

  4. Greg102 responds:

    as much as i’d love to have someone discover 15 caddys, my money is on a family of 15 otters, and the program will claim that’s caddy, and it’s just a case of mistaken identity all these years.

  5. Nachzehrer responds:

    I’m tired of arguments about blobs, vague shapes and objects that are JUST out of range. If this film is anything less than 15 plesiosaurs playing water polo and the winning team being interviewed, I can’t be bothered.

  6. graybear responds:

    Hope very much to see cadborosaurus in multiples. Expecting otters, ducks, moose, anything remotely similar. Wish it were otherwise.

  7. mystery_man responds:

    Why are they airing this on a TV program rather than submitting it to a zoological institution for peer review?

    red_pill_junkie (wink wink)

    I have to say my red flag goes up when this sort of media sensationalism happens. If this were footage of any other new species, it would be looked at by those sorts of institutions before being released on a nationwide TV program.

    Am I the only one who thinks it a little odd that whenever there is any alleged footage or evidence of cryptids, it is built up is this manner and made into a sort of freak show on national TV?

    As someone constantly striving for crytpozoology to be taken as a legitimate scientific pursuit, this is the sort of thing I hate to see in this field to be perfectly honest.

  8. sonofthedestroyer responds:

    The media is never trustworthy when it comes to cryptozoology.
    Too often they end up making a mockery of the whole thing and get a nice clean profit to go with it.
    I would love to be wrong this time though.
    Lets hope it really is caddy this time

  9. red_pill_junkie responds:

    @Mystery_Man: Hey, I never said those rants wouldn’t be justified 😉

    I agree with you: this is the sort of thing that makes most people believe Cryptozoology is nothing but a commercial scheme intended only on producing media circuses, instead of real evidence.

  10. larrykat responds:

    More like 15 cardboardosauruses.

  11. alcalde responds:

    Forget the Sasq-watch. If this footage turns out to be real, the Crypto-museum needs to commission 15 chocolate Cadbury-Sauruses.
