Cashing In On Quatchis

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 21st, 2010

The New Hampshire Union-Leader and Sunday News today, Sunday, February 21, 2010, has published an article on the selling of Sasquatch.

The article is being carried in the newstand print editions, and for a charge, online.  Here’s the description of the news item:

Check out Bigfoot: What does Bigfoot have to do with pop culture? Well, judging by the legendary creature’s appearance in commercials and as one of the Olympic mascots (Quatchi), Bigfoot has clearly become a pop culture icon. Ian Clark, in his Pop Culture Club column, talks to someone who has been researching the legendary creature for 50 years, and has opened a museum dedicated to his work.”

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.

    My son loves his. He actually took it to bed with him last night. I finally got to wash the smelly dog toy he has had for the last three years. Hallelujah!.
