Tom Slick Yeti Incident

Posted by: Loren Coleman on July 21st, 2012

A classic is revisited. You will note the editors left out the entire Jimmy Stewart part of the story I related to their filmmakers.

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.

    Yeti sighting or a young Loren Coleman? You decide.

    It may well be that Hillary’s purpose was to debunk the yeti’s existence. But I can tell you that when I had the opportunity to ask him in person about his belief in the creature, he was truthful. He simply replied that he could see no evidence for its existence.

  3. Loren Coleman responds:

    And was your interview after 1960?

    In the 1940s-1950s, Hillary was open to the existence of Yetis. And he was responsible for some of the evidence noting it might be there in Nepal. In 1960, during his debunking Snowman expedition, which was a cover for a spy mission against the Chinese in Tibet, he had changed his mind. I would assume that, of course, after 1960, his “party line” would be there “is no evidence for its existence.” To say otherwise would be to contradict himself.
