Manimal Drawing

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 24th, 2006

In conjunction with Dr. Dmitri Bayanov’s essay, Cryptomundo readers might like to see this drawing contributed by Dr. Igor Bourtsev.

Carter Family Drawing

The first meeting in 1972 between seven-year old Janice with the 28-year-old Bigfoot named Fox. Her grandfather Robert Carter defended her that time.

Needless to say, many questions have been raised about the Carter Farm incidents. These accounts remain as credible, incredible, or uncredible as any eyewitness accounts, which, of course, have everything to do with the individuals involved and their re-tellings of the events.

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.

    An intriguing and thought provoking story….thank you for sharing it…

    seeing is believing….

    ole bub and Sheba…the dawg

  3. Ole Bub responds:

    If factual…

    Isn’t the Carter/Coy Farm situation the perfect scenario for verification, validation, observation and protection?

  4. Jeremy_Wells responds:

    If her grandfather had a nearly 30 year relationship with the creature, including the ability to communicate with him, why was it necessary to “protect” seven year old Jan from Fox?

    Anyone gifted with artistic skill can draw nice pictures. This is a lovely, evocative drawing, but it’s not relevant to the search for evidence of exotic unknown animals. The expected appearance of Bigfoot is ingrained in public consciousness.

    The Carter story is bonkers. Anyone who spends time on it is wasting a valuable resource. We don’t want the best minds in cryptozoology being sidetracked with this crap.

    When the Carter reps can come up with hair, scat, or prints that pass muster (have un-hoaxable features) then we’ll be talking.

    This story is incredibly bad for Cryptozoology as a serious field.

    The sasquatch in the drawing looks rather odd compared with the Patterson film Mrs sasquatch and others. Mainly I think because it looks very fat. This may explain another problem,that the arms look too short. Shoudn’t they end up somewhere near the knees rather than a bit below the hip as are mine? Then what about a few rippling muscles in this prime mail. If Fox is a corn fed farm sasquatch rather spoils the magic doesn’t it? With great respect to Drs. Bayanov and Bourtsev I think we ought to have a more macho image than this cuddly looking tame looking saquatch drawing!
