Tony Morrill gently introduces a new documentary film to which he gives some cryptozoological love. The film tells the story of Southern Tier Bigfoot Watch founder Timothy Holmes as he's joined by "the Who Forted?gang" on a search for North America's most famous cryptid in the forests of southern New York. With movie trailer. And Doug Gibson has an interesting report on the figure the Latter Day Saints considered to be Cain, of the Bible, and others may have taken to be Bigfoot, as noted inAwareness of Racism Eased Mormon Folk Tales Regarding Cain, Bigfoot. Elsewhere, Dale Drinnon gives his take on the announcement of the discovery of an important paleological find "in the basement of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County" in Pregnant Plesiosaur Fossil. Drinnon thinks the plesiosaur may be responsible for some of the many sea serpent reports from mariners, ancient and modern, and thinks these sightings may have influenced boat builders in ancient days, as noted in Long- Necked Sea Serpents In The Viking Age, and even today, as represented by boats from China and Southeast Asia, including India and Indonesia, as seen, with images, in Oriental Dragon Boats. Meanwhile, at CFZ Australia a series of ancient maps show the creatures early cartographers thought shuffled around on land and slid through the waters of the Land Down Under, as noted, with images, in Terra Australis Boasted Griffins, Reindeer and Sea Monsters; and at CFZ Canada an after action report reveals the proceedings from last weekend and what the organization took home from it, as revealed in PSICAN Crypto Day: Lessons Learned. Elsewhere, a strange looking animal trapped and released in Maryland has people asking Is Bizarre Creature Caught on Video a Chupacabra?
