Matt Bille Reviews Abominable Science

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on September 8th, 2013

Loxton and Prothero have written a very good book, which I reviewed on Amazon as a 4.5 star effort (I’ll explain why I had to downgrade it just a bit) that goes on the “must reading” list for anyone interested in cryptozoology. I’ve been following this field for decades now without seeing anything that fills this niche – that of the scientific, skeptical (in the good sense of the word) consideration of the entire field and its most spectacular maybe-creatures.

In light of the recent Lincoln Bigfoot encounter, Loren Coleman disagrees with Jeff Meldrum's claim that Nebraska is unlikely to have real Bigfoot sightings because there simply isn't enough deeply wooded areas to support the creature. Coleman provides a plethora of reported sightings from the area to easily counter Meldrum's remarks...Cryptozoonews also reveals new Sasquatch sightings in Drayton Valley, Alberta that includes reports of a Sasquatch family group. Like Nebraska, Drayton Valley has had numerous Bigfoot sightings over the last few decades. Meanwhile, a local resident of Walla Walla, Washington says he's got the nearby Mill Creek fish die-off problem all figured out...clearly, Sasquatch is a threat to Mill Creek’s pristine water, because, he says, BFRO said that Mill Creek is a major meeting place for lots of Bigfoot. That makes us picture crowds of Bigfoot having a family reunion, frying up fish, and dirtying up the water with whatever Bigfoot litter consists of. We hope they are all caught and ticketed accordingly.

An Anniversary of Terror Mysterious Universe
Nick Redfern revisits a time of high strangeness in the Welsh town of Rhayader in 1988 when something downright Lovecraftian terrorized the area and killed livestock in such a bizarre way that people suspected it was a giant serpent...Meanwhile, a Lincoln, Nebraska sheriff is marking a different sort of cryptid anniversary--the first time he's ever investigated a report of Bigfoot. A teen's hairy run-in with 7-footer probed as Bigfoot encounterwhen the boy reported seeing a Sasquatch crossing the road in front of his car next to the Platte River. The investigation turned up a hair sample which is now being tested.

Well-known for his passion for Forteana, mainly UFOs and Nessie, Charlie Sheen traveled up to Alaska to hunt for the mythical "Otter Man", which is described as half man, half otter. Alas, Charlie was unsuccessful in his mission but has an explanation, "It obviously knew our group was far too skilled to be snowed in this fashion so it stayed hidden like a sissy." Maybe Otter Man just isn't a fan of the paparazzi either...Nick Redfern is pondering an age-old mystery that originated with smugglers centuries ago in the UK who either made up the stories or actually encountered frightening black dogs. The result was centuries of enduring legends about the Smugglers and strange creatures.
