    Default Photograph leading to capture of Bigfoot would net $1 million

    I wonder how many people will try to do this???

    From Mainetoday.com

    Photograph leading to capture of Bigfoot would net $1 million


    Associated Press


    LEWISTON — A Maine scientist is preparing to release details of a $1 million reward for a photograph that leads to the live capture of Bigfoot, the abominable snowman or the Loch Ness Monster. Loren Coleman, a professor at the University of Southern Maine, says the bounty would be paid for by an unnamed company and that he will release more details at a cryptozoology symposium at Bates College over Halloween weekend. Cryptozoology is the scientific study of hidden, rumored or unknown animals.

    "It's the time for something like this," Coleman said. "Back in the 1960s, hardly anybody was talking about this. Today, it's phenomenal."

    The mysteries surrounding these creatures have long been the subject of debate.

    Bigfoot, or sasquatch, is said to be a huge, hairy humanlike creature with long arms. The abominable snowman, or yeti, is a large, hairy, manlike mammal reputed to live in the Himalayas. The Loch Ness Monster is a dinosaur-like creature reputed to live in a lake in Scotland.

    The $1 million bounty would be paid by a company to anyone who produces a photograph that leads to the live capture of one of the three creatures, Coleman says.

    "We don't want people running around with guns trying to kill something to get the money," Coleman said. "It's not a contest, either. It's a very specific bounty that depends on the permanent capture of a live specimen, with emphasis on 'live.' "

    Coleman, a cryptozoologist who is considered one of the world's leading experts on Bigfoot, says he will release some details about the bounty at a Bigfoot conference over the weekend in Texas. He's saving the rest for Lewiston, where he will speak at the symposium on Oct. 28 on the Bates campus.

    The three-day symposium, held at the Bates College Museum of Art, will focus on cryptozoology, science and art.

    "What we like about the subject is that there is such a fine line between truth and fraud in the field, and that goes way back through history," said museum curator Mark Bessire. "We're looking at how the possibility of these beasts becomes a part of the cultural canon."

    The event will include panel discussions about the science of fantastic creatures and artistic interpretations of their stories.

    Coleman says most sightings are hoaxes, mistakes or misunderstandings. But the $1 million reward is on the level, he says.

    "The company that's behind this really understands the situation," he said. "They understand the interest in the creatures and monsters that are really out there and they are willing to step forward."


    BIGFOOT BELIEFS
    THEORIES ABOUT the origin of Bigfoot abound, including that it might be an extraterrestrial. Many believe that a towering, ape-like creature descended from a prehistoric 9- to 10-foot-tall gorilla called a Gigantopithecus, and that it now inhabits North American forests.

    THERE HAVE BEEN more than 2,550 seemingly credible Bigfoot sightings reported in North America the past century, according to Christopher L. Murphy's 2004 book "Meet the Sasquatch."

    HOAXES HAVE been a large part of the making of the Bigfoot legend. Californian construction company owner Ray L. Wallace donned 16-inch wooden feet to create tracks in mud in 1958, and it led to a front-page story in a local paper that coined the term "Bigfoot."

    DARYL G. COLYER of Texas, who has investigated hundreds of reported Bigfoot sightings, estimates that about 2,000 are living in North America today.

    There are more than a few organizations that would pay 1 million or more just for an authentic photograph of this specimen, capture or not.

    I love cryptozoology. Kraken, Scottish pleiosaurs, jersey devils, chapacubras, sasquatches, swamp apes, mothmen...I dig it all.

    Speaking of which, anybody catching Surface on Monday nights? Not bad.

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    I think he used to own the Vikings and went under the pseudonym of Red McCombs. That reason enough?

    This may sound weird, but when I was a kid living in Wisconsin, I used to go for walks in the woods all of the time. One day as I was out on one of my 'Journeys', I heard a cracking noise, like tree branches breaking if you step on them. I looked over and this thing was moving from left to right. I thought it might be a bear at first but this thing was pretty tall and more lean than a bear. It looked right at me, and I hauled ass back to the house. Carl Lewis couldn't have caught my 8 year old ass that day.
