Not Good For Yeti-Hunting

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 24th, 2006

Word out of Katmandu is that the US State Department today, April 24th, ordered all non-emergency US mission personnel and dependents to depart Nepal. This decision, made at the recommendation of the Embassy, was taken out of concern for the safety of US Government employees and their families.

The US Mission includes the Embassy, its Consular Section and American Center in the Yak & Yeti Hotel, both of which have been closed until further notice.

Ambassador James F. Moriarty, who informed the Mission community of the Embassy’s recommendation, also is recommending that all American citizens in Nepal should consider leaving the country at this time because of the uncertain security conditions.

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.

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.

    Yes, it’s bad, & I feel terrible for the people of Nepal. Gyanendra is an awful tyrant. One good thing is that while the humans are fighting one another, they are not threatening fellow species.

  2. Josh_Harris responds:

    It’s depressing knowing that humans think they are helping themselves and others when hurting someone else.

  3. Godrock responds:

    Goodness…there is actually a place called the “Yak and Yeti Hotel”?

    That’s funny.

  4. DL42 responds:

    The Maoists essentially control much, if not most of the country. I am very afraid Nepal might end up like a minor Cambodia. The king can’t last and in the vacuum I could see the Maoists sweeping into Katmandu. Not good.

  5. Jos Gagné responds:

    Without wanting to sound like if I’m overlooking the political situation, I will still agree with Godrock that the Yak and Yeti hotel sounds cool. I should start my own hotel : the Moose and Sasquatch Hotel 🙂

  6. Chymo responds:

    The Maoists, however misguided in their political model, are infinitely to be preferred than the absolute rule of the Monarchy in Nepal. They have created a lot of suffering in their country which could have been alleviated long ago by the institution of democracy. Even Sadam Hussein allowed the people representation, for heaven’s sake!
