Cartoon Characterizes Entire Erickson Project?

Posted by: Loren Coleman on December 5th, 2011

I’m not sure what it really means, but Shawn at Bigfoot Evidence posted the following cartoon over the summer to make a statement about the entire Erickson Project. Perhaps now is a time to seriously ponder it further:

“The Big Game Hunter” by rico-xx, South African artist, Mr. Rico Schacherl.

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.

    I think what he’s getting at is that there is more of a possibility of Justin Smeja shooting an amazonian tribes woman that it was a sasquatch that he shot. This project has huge claims but masks under non disclosure agreements. There is absolutely no credibility to this study. Why not release something to keep this going, but instead, Erickson shuts his website down. This whole thing is going to come crashing down. Just recently Matt Moneymaker said that the peer reviewed paper got kicked back and that the whole thing could take a lot more time. Really? Hold on while I put my surprised face on.

    I may go search for the tooth fairy because my kid had 3 dollars left under his pillow. That’s proof that the tooth fairy exists.

    Don’t get me wrong, I commend people for trying to discover new things, but this topic is becoming one that anyone who touches it becomes insane.

    BTW, I would bet a whole lot of money that Justin Smeja is lying and did not shoot a bigfoot at all. In my opinion his story is totally ludicrous, if you know the details he initially described.

    He claimed he found the pieces of hide after to returning to the area of the “shooting” after a snow storm. He says he didn’t know if the hide was related to what he claimed he shot. To me that sounds like he’s structuring the story so he can remain blameless when the hide is shown to be from a known animal. On top of that, he mentioned that he’s got a freezer full of dead coyote parts (he hunts those too). I do suspect he cut a piece of hide from one of those dead coyotes and provided that to the people who bought into his shooting story. Here’s the red flag for that: Some folks I know spent a lot of time questioning the dude in person … One of them says that when he heard Ketchum “confirmed” that his samples came from a sasquatch, he said he thought SHE was a hustler … which seemed strange to the person he said that to. It doesn’t puzzle me at all. He would have good reason to say that if he knew the hide came from a coyote. And that’s exactly what it looked like. I saw a photo of the hide piece. I was a roughly rectangular piece of fur and skin which looked like it was cut from a larger hide. The piece in question looked like it came from the belly of a coyote. Supposedly Meldrum also said it looked like it could have come from a coyote.
