Well, it's been a long time since my last interview, but this one here will make number 21 in the series. What better way to get it back going again, than with a young man that is well on his way to achieving great things in the cryptozoology field. Jack Tessier is the chairman and CEO of Australian Cryptozoology Research Organization (A.C.R.O.) . Please note that the Australian version of Bigfoot is called a Yowie.
I hope you enjoy this interview.
Tom: How long have you been researching/studying bigfoot?
Jack: I've being researching Yowies for almost 2 years now.
Tom: What got you interested in Bigfoot, Was there a particular event that got you started?
Jack: I got interesting after watching Bigfoot Files on TV.
Tom: During your research/studying of Bigfoot, have you ever encountered aggressive behavior or felt in danger from a bigfoot?(details please)
Jack: I've felt in danger once when I was walking on a narrow dirt bush track in Southeast Queensland the bush was eerily quiet and I heard something moving through there.
Tom: It seems Skeptics are always ready to attack bigfoot research, How do you deal with it?
Jack: When it comes to harsh skeptics I don't think a lot of them are open minded enough to do fully genuine research and if they get out of control with bullying because of my beliefs then I usually shrug them off.
Tom: Would you like to see Bigfoot accepted and/or proven to the general public?
Jack: I'd love to see them proven to the public but as much as I believe they are out there, until actual scientists have proven their existence we won't be able to change peoples minds.
Tom: What is your favorite time of year to research/study bigfoot, When do you have your most success?
Jack: I have most of my success in summer when researching.
Tom: Do you have a favorite Bigfoot story or report?
Jack: The most intriguing report of a Yowie would have to be a report I received where a woman was staying in a hotel right up against the bush here in Lake Macquire and heard what she thought were 2 felines fighting and it went for 20 minutes but she realized it was coming from deep in the bush. Then that next morning another woman in that hotel saw a huge man ape like creature walk right passed her room.
Tom: What would you be doing if you wasn't researching/studying bigfoot?
Jack: If I weren't out researching Yowies I might be out researching Big Cats or the giant Monitor Lizard/Megalania or writing my own articles about what I have found when researching Cryptids.
Tom: Thanks for taking part in the interview, keep us posted on your bigfoot/Yowie research.
Jack: Thanks again Tom, and I will absolutely keep you updated with my research.
