To Die For? Not!

This was sort of painful to read. Or maybe it was because it was accompanied by more Texas dead dog photos.

The UK’s Telegraph published a thankfully short article, “10 monsters to see before you die.”

Here’s their list:



Yeti/Abominable Snowman

Loch Ness Monster

Jersey Devil





Swedish Storsjoodjuret

“Aliens”? I chalk that up to laziness. Same goes for Pukwudgies.

For those that need to be reminded, ”More” is the theme song to the 1962 Italian film Mondo Cane (“A Dog’s World”). This video was at 632 views when I posted it. It seems appropriate to go with the continuing Chupacabras theme being promoted by the Texas-Oklahoma news services, and now worldwide media. Heaven help us.

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.
