Monsters and Fairies

Bolam

"What they saw was not Bigfoot, or Sasquatch as I prefer to call him; it was an enormous shadowy figure in the trees, more like a ghost than flesh-and-blood. In a park not far from a city centre, you're not going to get a nine-foot ape-like creature - England doesn't have the habitat to support it. I don't mean that these are the ghosts of some creature which has died; I think it is more complex than that."

Richard Freeman, of the Center for Fortean Zoology

Complex indeed! I have to admit that Freeman's International-Monster-Template theory (as described in this BBC Magazine article) is just plain fun. At the very least, it's remarkably creative. Anything that blends bigfoot (and other cryptids) with dwarves and fairies is right down my alley; who cares if it's true or not...

Many people will not accept the possibility that a north american primate still exists.. I know they do..I have seen one ! And I am studying some very interesting evidence in northern Ontario

An undiscovered tribe of man has been found in Peru.. This is fantastic.. So if it's possible for them to be living beside the civilized world and only found now..Why then is it so difficult for people to believe that a large primate could be doing the same.. Hmmmmm
