That Darn Cadborosaurus Footage Again!

Posted by: John Kirk on January 23rd, 2014

This footage has been discussed extensively here on Cryptomundo in the past: Alaskan Cadborosaurus

Dr. Paul Leblond and myself are the only two people who have seen all of the footage obtained by Kelly, Jasen and Kyle Nash. We have seen the full on face shot of the head of one of these animals and it is the living breathing double of Cadbosorsaurus willsi or the Naden Harbour carcass if your prefer.

There is no blowhole. That is spray coming off the back of one of the animals as it surfaces while moving at very high speed. They are not narwhals, sturgeon, pinnipeds, pilot whales or any known animal. There is a pod of belugas that go after these animals and I have never seen belugas behave in such an aggressive and frenzied manner. It is obvious that they did not know what these things were wither and went after them. There is one scene that was not shown in Alaskan Monster Hunt where two large ones shield a juvenile from an attacking beluga. Quite amazing stuff.

We at the BCSCC have finally ascertained what happened to the footage and will be letting our members know first through the BCSCC Quarterly. At a later time we will be happy to show with others.

Kelly Nash wanted to make a pile of money off this. He contacted us in April 2009, but we weren’t hopeful of what he had to be honest. The images were not very good, but as Paul and I were both going to be in Washington State on our way home from the Bob Gimlin tribute in Yakima we felt we should have separate viewings then compare notes. What we saw floored us. BCSCC members will soon find out what happened to the missing footage. It is real and we were privileged to see it.

    When that head pops up – WOW !

  2. sasquatch responds:

    Can’t wait to see it…’cause from what I can ascertain; the footage above is not what is being discussed in the article…?

    Just part of it?

    Well-what up?-let’s see the rest!

    So how is this not dolphins or seals?

    So how is this not dolphins or seals?

    Because it is female narwhals with calves?

  6. Champ Voucher responds:

    After viewing in it’s entirety, an infamous Champ video , I offered the representative $20,000 for ownership and was quickly told “no way, Discovery Channel spends $100,000 just to put Liz (Von Muggenthaler) on a boat for the day.” I hope that this clip hasn’t fallen into the same trap, being sat upon until the money appears, which because of the amount, may never happen. Mr. Kirk sounds hopeful.

    When property belongs to someone else, one has to be careful to not step on their inviolable rights. Things are very delicate in regard to trying to get this footage. We have hit one obstacle after another, but it seems we might be getting some cooperation in this regard.

    This story has taken a very sad turn, but I have not given up my efforts to see if we can get the footage for analysis. Which part of not seals and narwhals did those two readers miss? For goodness sake, Paul Leblond and I know what whales and phocids look like. Since when do either have a cameloid head.

    I’ll update Cryptomundians on this after I have advised my club members of what has transpired in regard to this extraordinary footage.

    John Kirk… good stuff.

    always wondered about this…. the video looks very interesting.

    you’re saying there’s MORE?

    And BETTER stuff?

    damn. thats insane.

    if they need to breathe to live, wonder why there aren’t more sightings and video?

    and the beluga whales going nuts?

    wonder whats up with that.

  9. cryptokellie responds:

    While I take Mr. Kirk at his word (not easy to do in the crypto-world) and hope to see this extra footage that he speaks of, I see nothing “camaloid” in the released Caddy footage above. This footage could be of any group of sea animals. There isn’t enough showing above the surface to make a positive identification of a particular specie. I saw a video on Shutterstock of a group of narwhals swimming and the footage is very similar. Very similar “porposing” swimming style and the blow-spray happening at the same instant the blow hole brakes the surface…very similar.
    Until the more demonstrative footage is made available which would conclusively show the aspects stated by Mr. Kirk, I would say that this footage shows some sort of small whale. The sad and circus style presentation of the above footage grafted onto the Hillstrand brothers crab-catching comedy act is an unfortunate example of what can happen to evidence when expectations of quick wealth are attached to it. Of course, I don’t have any crypto-footage to offer so I really can’t make any judgement on what process would happen to me if such an event occurred. I truly hope that the rest of the footage exists and that arrangements can be made to release it the satisfaction of all parties involved so that it can be studied.

    But I have my doubts…

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
