It is not your imagination. Bigfoot news is all over the map.
New sightings and stories are popping up about them. Old cases discussed in recent newspaper items are being published about 1970s’ Illinois reports and Missouri flaps. Exhibition news is coming out of Kansas City, and plans for Jefferson, Texas, Bigfoot museum continues onward. A Skunk Ape is allegedly photographed in Florida, maybe a “chimpanzee” one too (above), and now debates are getting new fire under them. The pot is heating up in Malaysia again. Yowies now come into play too.
Then, of course, there’s that Idaho professor friend of ours getting lots of attention.
What’s going on? You can’t turn around without bumping into the stuff. Perhaps people are tired of reading about the election and Iraq? Or maybe this is one of those infrequent Sasquatch seasons?
Just look at some of the news popping up..today.
Boing Boing buddy David Pescovitz has posted over there about Dr. Jeff Meldrum’s tome, in “Scientist’s new book about Sasquatch”. Pescovitz also notes the link to Meldrum’s guest appearance on NPR’s Talk Of The Nation.
CNN broadcast a story on the Wisconsin “non-Bigfoot” Bigfoot story. Now they’ve put it online, at least for a few days, via a link here to the video.
Meanwhile, documentary filmmaker Peter von Puttkamer, the producer/director of Sasquatch Odyssey: The Hunt for Bigfoot, is making news with his new film, The Real Lost World. It will be broadcast on Discovery HD Theater on December 14th, and on Animal Planet, December 10th and 17th, 2006.
Word now comes that on Monday, November 20, the National Geographic Channel will broadcast their new documentary on the Almas (off-production photo above), calling it, perhaps misleadingly, “Russian Bigfoot”. It was back on March 16, 2006, when I first wrote about this documentary here at Cryptomundo.
