Montauk Monster, eat your heart out.
A press conference has been scheduled for this Friday (August 15) in Palo Alto, California. According to a press release distributed today, a body of a large primate found in Georgia will be presented to the media.
Is this Bigfoot at last?
It sure sounds like Bigfoot. From the press release:
Here are some of the vital statistics on the “Bigfoot” body:
*The creature is seven feet seven inches tall.
*It weighs over five hundred pounds.
*The creature looks like it is part human and part ape-like.
*It is male.
*It has reddish hair and blackish-grey eyes.
*It has two arms and two legs, and five fingers on each hand and
five toes on each foot.
*The feet are flat and similar to human feet.
*Its footprint is sixteen and three-quarters inches long and five and three-quarters inches wide at the heel.
*From the palm of the hand to the tip of the middle finger, its hands are
eleven and three-quarters inches long and six and one-quarter inches wide.
*The creatures walk upright. (Several of them were sighted on the same day that the body was found.)
*The teeth are more human-like than ape-like.
*DNA tests are currently being done and the current DNA and photo evidence will be presented at the press conference on Friday, August 15th.
I know, I know. This could very easily be a publicty stunt or a hoax- it sounds waaaay too good to be true. But several high-profile cryptozoologists, including Cryptomundo founder Loren Coleman, have reportedly seen photos of the creature. And Coleman for one thinks it is significant:
I feel, in all honesty, this, indeed, may be the real deal, and I say this carefully after reviewing information that has been shared privately with me. I cannot say more yet. But people will be very surprised.
From what I know of Loren Coleman, he wouldn’t knowingly go along with a hoax or publicity gag. This is a guy who truly cares about cryptozoology. So if the ‘Georgia Gorilla’ is a fake, then it must be a very, very good one.
So, I guess we’ll have to wait until Friday. I’m not sure what to make of all this, but I am definitely intrigued. A real Sasquatch carcass would blow a Bigfoot-sized whole through the world’s own idea of itself, turning modern science onto its head.
