Cryptozoological or Paranormal?

Today in Bigfoot History | APR 09, 1934 | America’s First Sasquatch-Catching Expedition

Peter Byrne has searched for Bigfoot for the past 50 years both out in the field and also in the publishing world, with an astonishing 13 books on the subject. And he's still going strong searching for proof of Bigfoot all throughout the Pacific Northwest, a hotbed for Sasquatch sightings. Also, don't miss this interesting profile on Europe's wild Men from National Geographic. Since ancient times, legends of "wild men" have pervaded the cultures of people all across Europe and much of the known world. Some of these cultures embraced the legend and made the wild man an active part of their belief systems. In places like Romania, Italy and Austria, spring festivals celebrate the wild man with elaborate costumes. The concept of a half man, half beast wild man is quite interesting and makes you wonder exactly where the idea originated from. Note: This online article only has one photo but there is a fantastic collection of them in this month's issue.
