Biscardi, Bigfoot, and $1 Million

A Bigfoot hunt is happening in Ohio at the moment, and it has gotten a lot of news coverage.

WCPO Cincinnati reports:

"If you're a believer, you might hunk you have to travel far out west to catch a glimpse of Bigfoot.
"One group thinks the famed creature of folklore might be closer to home.
"California-based Searching for Bigfoot traveled to Youngstown this week after a man claimed he took a photo of a sasquatch there, WKBN reports.
"In fact, Xavier King told the Youngstown television station he saw Bigfoot twice.
""'I had seen something, I don't know what it was, I had seen something, that's all I know,' Kind told WKBN. 'I got out and took a picture.'
"Scientists widely discredit sightings as misidentifications or outright hoaxes. People sometimes mistake black bears for the mythic creatures, experts say. Other hoaxes have involved people wearing fake suits, including a man hit and killed by a car four years ago.
"T. J. Biscardi, director of operations for Searching for Bigfoot, told WKBN he gets more reports from Ohio around this time of year because sasquatches migrate north.
"The creatures, he claimed, follow rivers and patches of forest.
"The state is apparently fertile for folklore: Ohio hosts an annual Bigfoot Conference at Salt Fork State Park Lodge. The conferences feature television personalities, academics, local and national Bigfoot investigators. This year's event is May 20.
"Searching for Bigfoot has a $1 million bounty competition, which started April 2 and runs through Christmas Day. The money is for 'anyone brave enough to deliver information leading to the capture of delivery of a bone fide Bigfoot.'
"Because King's photo is part of the competition, the group wouldn't show it to WKBN.
"The group planned to spend the weekend camping in Girard, Ohio, hoping to spot a sasquatch.
"'With the team ready, we'll get to capture one of these creates and bring it back and prove to the world that they exist,' Biscardi said.

I find it somewhat suspicious that they "can't show the photo" that King took. And also that their "competition" started the day after April Fool's. And that Biscardi is involved in the whole thing. Biscardi was involved with hoaxes in 2005 and 2008, though he claims he was deceived both times! If he really was, maybe he shouldn't be the guy judging if evidence is real or not.

Also, on their website, Tom says he is the "Godfather of Bigfoot" and that he is a "legendary" Bigfoot researcher!

Basically I don't really trust any of this.

The whole thing is probably as real as this!

The Burrunjor - A Present-Day Australian Dinosaur?

Australia is said to be home to a variety of cryptid creatures, from the aquatic Bunyip, the man-like Yowies and Wakkis, and the thylacine. There is another, however, that could be considered stranger than all the others. Why? Because its said to be something that should have gone extinct 65 million years ago!

The creature in question is called the Burrunjor, and is said to be a surviving dinosaur. Now, before you think that there is no possible way the Burrunjor could be real, remember that there are sightings and stories of other dinosaur-like creatures from around the world - for example, the mokele-mbembe, kongamato, and others in Africa, "Mounatin Boomers" in the U.S., the Partridge Creek Monster, and more.

Over the years there have been many sightings and stories of the Burrunjor in Australia, including this one from Rex and Heather Gilroy from the 1970s:

"In 1978, a Northern Territory bushman and explorer, Bryan Clark, related a story of his own that had taken pl…

Some Thoughts on Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition

So far, two episodes of Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition have aired. Here are some of my thoughts on the show.

First off, let's start with the team, the Midnight Sons. There are a few new members on the team this season. The old leader, Little Bear, is gone, and now Crusty (the guy with the bear claw in his beard) is leader of the team. Other members are: Dudley (new guy), the team "forensic expert," Todd, the "trap engineer," Bulldog (new guy), the "survival expert," Rhett, the "greenhorn" (rookie), and of course Face, the "veteran tracker."

Compared to the AIMS Team of Mountain Monsters, Crusty is Trapper, Todd is Willy, Rhett is Buck, Bulldog would probably be Huckleberry, Dudley would probably be Jeff, and Face would be Wild Bill.

I haven't seen the first episode, "Bigfoot of the Arctic Circle: Siberian Giant," but I did watch episode two, "Bigfoot of Denali: Wind Walker" last Saturday. I actually though…

Mountain Monsters - Coming Back in 2018?

Destination America's Mountain Monsters was a huge hit when it premiered in 2013. It's had five seasons through last year.

Season 3 started a "Bigfoot Edition" and season 4 introduced a "rogue team." Last season focused entirely on this "rogue team" and ended with really no conclusion.

Over the past 2 Saturdays, some old season 2 episodes of Mountain Monsters have been playing in the evenings. Could this be a sign that the show might be back for another season this year, or does it have no meaning at all?

If the show does come back, where can they go? Last season made absolutely no sense at all and the whole thing was pretty stupid. If it does come back, I think they should go back to just monster hunting like they did in the first two seasons. Once they went to just "Bigfoot Edition" things went downhill quick.
