Wanted: Scene Stealing Sasquatch

Posted by: Loren Coleman on August 17th, 2009

The original Crasher Squirrel photo was taken by Melissa and Jackson Brandts in Banff in late May 2009. The image of the squirrel has gone viral since it appeared on the National Geographic’s website on August 7, 2009. (Melissa Brandts)

Would anyone believe you if a Bigfoot popped up in front of you while you were doing your family picture-taking?

There were attempts to debunk Melissa and Jackson Brandts’ photo, as you can imagine.

“Show me the dead body,” say the skeptics.

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.

    Oh great—just what we need—another camera-hogging squirrel.

    There needs to be law prohibiting them from coming within a certain amount of feet of innocent tourists just wanting to have memories of their trip filmed.

    One day there will be an “altercation” between people and these squirrels and people will wake up to the Invasion of Privacy issues involved here 🙂

    According to Tom Biscardi, there’s a north Georgia sheriff’s deputy who has the body of this squirrel in a freezer.

  3. dabode responds:

    Excellent comments cryptids & FHQ…he’s such a cheerful little fellow tho’

  4. JMonkey responds:

    My understanding is that if you want proof of the squirrel you have to meet with his agent, pay a small nominal fee, and use only a still camera. The cost is about 30 acorns and 2 walnuts per picture. Good luck gentlemen.

    Forget the squirrel! What kind of cryptid is that trying to eat Phil Spector’s head!
