Is Bigfoot Lurking in British Columbia, Canada?

In August of 2019, CTV News reported that a Canadian writer named John Zada had received tons of information about Sasquatch sightings in British Columbia, Canada, and the Pacific Northwest in general. American Cryptid hunters who want to cross national borders in their quest for proof may want to head for Canada's glorious West Coast. It's a great tourist destination, anyway, whether you travel with some other Cryptid-obsessed folk or with your own family...hey, maybe your family is into searching for Cryptids, too. If you decide to travel to British Columbia (also known as B.C.), you may want to start the hunt for Bigfoot at the Great Bear Rainforest.

I recently got in this Bigfoot sighting report from Nova Scotia. I have had this report in my emails for several days. I didn't get a chance to really read it over or post it due to the fact my wife had surgery the day after I got the email. So there were several days that I was just unable to really dig into any work.

Once I got a chance to really read the report, I went to google maps and scoped out the area. As you can see from the picture above there is a lot of forest area in this general spot.

Now lets look at the full report.
I was alerted to a document that for all intents and purposes, attempts to expose Todd Standing as nothing more than a fraud out to fool people and make money. While I don't personally have any vendetta against Standing, I also don't perceive his content to be that of real Bigfoot.

So, I decided to take a more serious look at the content within the document and see if any of it checked out. Many of the items in the document linked to some type of source that seemed to confirm statements within said document.

Below is some of my efforts to gain more information. I will try to explain why some things are important.
Still frame from Standing's film "Discovering Bigfoot"
Controversial bigfoot researcher Todd Standing is back and has released a film entitled"Discovering Bigfoot". He has also filed a civil lawsuit against the British Columbia Ministry of Environment
and British Columbia Fish and Wildlife and hopes to prove the existence of bigfoot in court.

Today, I want to talk more about the film and particularly this still frame above and not really talk about the lawsuit.

I also must be clear that I have not actually seen the film and have only seen a few shorts clips from it. With that said I want to offer my opinion on what I've seen and the still frame above.


I ran across a video that reportedly has a juvenile bigfoot in it and I wanted to share it with everyone. The video comes from Blayne Tyler, a Sasquatch researcher from Canada. In the video there is a bonus clip at the end that, according to Blayne, has another possible bigfoot in it.

I'm not familiar with Mr. Tyler but it appears he has an impressive collection of track castings.
The video of the juvenile bigfoot was shot while Mr. Tyler was inspecting an old abandoned car he had found. According to Blayne there is a 3 foot tall, brown bigfoot in the clip peeking at him.

Here is the clip
Still frame from video.
A few days ago I received a report about a bigfoot filmed in a lake. The report was pretty vague but linked to a video of the reported sighting. The above still frame is from that video. I want to not only share the report and video, I want to offer some opinions and information about the area and also a few enhanced still pictures.

First lets start with the report that was filed a few days ago.


I finally got back to one of my little side projects, FolkTales. This is on episode 2, if you would like to watch the first episode you can do so by Clicking Here.

This episode is titled Bell Island Ghost Story. Here is a brief description of the short program.
"A ghost story told by Nicole Doyle. This story takes place on Bell Island, Newfoundland. It is a very small island with very big mysteries.The island is a very woodsy area and it has been told that there are hags, fairies, witches and more in the woods. One night a walk home through the woods, gets Nicole the scare of her life! "


Here is the episode.



Thanks for watching, I hope to get the 3rd episode out in the near future. I know these little short stories are nothing spectacular, and not very well produced but I think the stories are worth sharing. I hope you enjoy them.

Large Bird Seen
I recently got in this report from Canada, of a very large unknown bird. Gordon, the person who submitted the report, describes the creature in detail. Could this very large unrecognized bird be the famed Thunderbird?

Here is the report:

- Start Report -

Name: Gordon *******
Email Address: On File
State: Canada (Country)
County: Ontario (Providence)
Date of Sighting: September 2nd, 1999
Time of Day:  2:30 pm
Nearest Town: Mississauga
Length of Sighting: 35 seconds
How many Witnesses: 1
Any Photos/Videos: no
Describe sighting in detail:

I was standing on the front porch of my house looking westward when I noticed a small object that was black. It was small at first in the sky, heading towards me. I kept watching as it got bigger and bigger I said said to myself what is it?? Trying to figure out what it could be at first!

I thought it was a remote controlled flying plane but it kept getting bigger and bigger. It was getting closer. It was soaring towards me then it soared right over the townhouse rooftops.
It was old and ugly. It had a bent beak a big white crest bone behind its head an it had lots bald areas.

The skin was a toffee color and black and grayish white mix patchy feathers were ruffled an bulky. It made no noise. I couldn't believe what I was looking at. All I could think was holy cow! It wasn't a pterodactyl but I knew it was looking like something prehistoric. It was thicker an bigger. It soared and never flapped its wings from the time it was tiny in the sky, until when it soared pass me and above the town homes. Length around 4 rooftops long.  It was gigantic. I was pretty shook up!
I'll never forget what I witnessed.

Follow up questions (Originally, Gordon, left the year off the report.)

What year was this and how wide was the wingspan?

1999 wing span was long around 30 feet across!!

- End Report -



This makes several reports that have came out of Canada about very large unknown birds. If you view our Sightings Map, it seem most of the possible Thunderbird sightings come from the Northern part of the USA and the Canadian border.

Thanks goes to Gordon for sharing this sighting.


Thanks

UFO
A few days ago, I got in the following report. I was able to email back and forth and Mark provided the picture and some zooms he had done of the object.

Here is the report.

- Start Report -


Name: Mark ********
Email Address: On file
State Province: Ontario
County: Canada
Date of Sighting: 10/07/2015 (7/10/15)
Time of Day: 9:16 pm
Nearest Town: Sudbury
Length of Sighting: 5 min  then I left the area
How many Witnesses: 1
Any Photos/Videos: 1
Describe sighting in detail:

Observation made from a parking lot East end of the city of Sudbury, On, Canada. Clear sky, sun was setting. I viewed an object that appeared to hover in the distance silently.

It caught my eye as it looked out of place. I watched it for 5 min as it made no movement. I asked an individual in the parking lot to verify what I saw. They thought it was weird and had no idea what it could be. Before I left the area I snapped one pic with my Samsung s4 cell phone.

When I arrived at home, I uploaded the picture to my PC. I was surprised when I viewed the pic zoomed in. It had the appearance of a concession of possible lights along what looks like an elongated body. I'm not sure what to make of it. Take a look for your self ...is it an illusion, trick of light or something more?

- End Report -

The very top photo was provided by Mark. I just added the circle and the TCC tag. Here is a couple of the zoom mark did of the photo.



This is a zoom in done by Mark of the object.












Here is another zoom done my Mark. There does seem to be some type of object sitting in the sky.






I also did a zoom myself and zoomed in even closer to the object. Here is that photo.




As you can see there is something there, just kind of hanging in mid air.


So just what is this object?








Thanks to Mark for sending in his sighting and the photos. If anyone else seen or took picture of this object that day, feel free to contact us.


Thanks

General map of area
I got this report in a few days ago. The sighting took place in Canada and the submitter thinks it might have been a Thunderbird. Here is the report.

- Start Report -

Name: Claudio ******
Email Address: On file
State: Canada
County:
Date of Sighting: Between June and August 2010
Time of Day: Morning
Nearest Town: Ottawa
Length of Sighting: 2 minutes
How many Witnesses: 1
Any Photos/Videos: no
Describe sighting in detail:

I remember waking up one morning and looking out the balcony and seeing this giant black bird flying at a very high altitude.

I have a good trained eye for birds and can recognize most of them on the spots. It was definitely much bigger than any vulture or eagle, I would say approximately between 4 to 6 meters (approx. 20 foot) in length. It was heading South, flying steady. I had a camera near me but was so shocked that I didn't think of picking it up.

I later looked up online and found out what I saw matched exactly other reports of the Thunderbird.

- End Report -

Thanks goes to Claudio for sending in the report. If anyone else has seen a possible Thunderbird then please sent it in to us.

Thanks

Shad Bay area
 I just got in another report from Canada. The report is several years old but it was a very up close sighting. Here is the report.

- Start Report -

Name: Alisha

Email Address: On file

State: Nova Scotia

Country: Canada

Date of Sighting: may 15 2010

Time of Day: 11:30 pm

Nearest Town: Halifax

Length of Sighting:

How many Witnesses: 3

Any Photos/Videos:

Describe sighting in detail:

It was a very clear moonlit night and I was driving home from work in Shad bay area. As I started up a hill I noticed a fur tree on the side of the road shake. And out of the woods came some kind of animal that was very tall standing on two legs.

In a matter for 2 seconds it walked out onto the road in front of my car and i slammed on the breaks with it inches from my bumper.

It had to be at least 8 feet tall and had reddish brown fur or hair. It looked right at me and I froze still and couldn't believe what I was seeing. The greenish glow of the eyes seemed to pierce right threw me.

It looked very muscular, almost like a  horse would with a long coat. This all happened in a matter of seconds and another car coming from the opposite direction stopped immediately after coming over the hill and the creature took a few strides and was gone.

The couple in the other car pulled up along side mine and said "what the f**k was that. I was still in shock and barley could get a word out. We talked from a brief minute but I just wanted to get home.

This happened only a few minutes from my house and to this day I will not go outside by myself at nigh and thinking of this still makes my hair stand on end! I have heard others have seen something like this around the area before.

- End Report -

A big thanks to Alisha for submitting her sighting. Yes, indeed there has been other reports close to this area. We have had a few reports from the Nova Scoita area. One in particular was from Leo Frank.

Thanks

Feed The Gods
Rated: Not Rated
Running Time: 85 minutes

Feed The Gods is an adventure/ horror film directed by Braden Croft.The film centers around two brothers who go searching for their biological parents after their guardian suffers a stroke and passes away. The two brothers are alerted to the possible whereabouts of their actual parents via a video tape. 

It just so happens the little town in which the bothers parents where living in has a history of Sasquatch sightings and activity. Once the brothers and a girlfriend arrive in the town they discover that the town is almost a ghost town. The town folks, what few of them there are, are really strange and weird acting.

This film was shot in Canada and as we all know, Canada has beautiful wilderness and a history of Bigfoot sightings. 

So far, it's sounding pretty good ...right? Well, the plotline is decent enough, the acting is decent enough, the location is spot on, the Sasquatch figure looks fair (Once you see it), but this movie just turns out to be a disappointment.

Once, again the Sasquatch are portrayed as murderous monsters but in this sleepy town they really have a lot of help. The movie is dark and rather slow moving but if you can stay interested to about half way the pieces start to fall together. It's still not enough to save the film but at least you get the bigger picture.

For Bigfoot fans, the film just does not focus on the Bigfoot element enough and you just do not get to see the Bigfoot until the movie is almost over. Even once you see the creature, it is very brief or blurred on purpose.

So with all that said, I just can not recommend this movie unless you are just really in a mood to watch a bad horror movie. I say, "Let the Gods go hungry."

Rating: 1 out of 5 Stars

Strange Howl recorded in Canada
This odd howl was recorded in Alert bay, Canada by Tina Duck on 1/25/15. The audio was really low and almost impossible to here.
She was needing someone to bring out the howl she heard and she allow me to attempt to enhance the audio. You can now here it but what is making this sound?

Here is the video with the enhanced sound.



What do you think?


Thanks

could it be a real Thunderbird
Is this a Thunderbird?

Is this a Thunderbird?
I got this report submitted last night. It is one of a possible Thunderbird. It had a couple of photos with it and I have also attempted to enhance one of the photos.

Here is what Mark had to say in his report.

"Hello, I  had read a story about a few people that saw a large bird in  near Breedsville, Michigan, it was  posted on your  site  by Thomas Marcum.

It reminded me of the large  bird  I had seen on a  fishing trip in Spanish Ontario Canada.  I  managed to take a couple of pictures of what  I witnessed before it went out of  site.
My father and  I  were fishing  on  lake  Huron, north  of  the  Manitoulin Island by the  main land . The closest village  is  Spanish  Ont. The  sighting  was  relatively close, geographically speaking, to the  Michigan one.

The  unknown species  was very high in the sky . Other birds were in the area for comparison  flying  around at different altitudes but which were much smaller and not near as high up.
I was able  to  identify some eagles  and sea gulls that same day. What I  took a picture of that day  really stood out and was much larger. Truly a massive winged creature. I zoomed in for the  2nd pic the best i could. Take  a look ...see what you  think."


Ok, first here is the link to the Breedsville, Michigan Report that Mark mentions in his report.

Here is the other photo that Mark sent in.

I want to point out something, the sighting date with the photo is June 8th, 2012 and the photo has a date of 5/31/2011.
It's not a big deal but if you don't point out stuff like this people raise red flags. Most likely this was due to a changed in batteries. I know I have had cameras that the date would reset if I had to change batteries ...it was annoying fixing the date.

Here you can see a large bird way up in the sky.



 
 
 
 
 
Now I will show you the zoom in from the picture at the top of the post. This is the photo in which Mark had zoomed in on, I can take it much closer with my software.

 
 
 
 
 
As you can see the bird is really large. Is it a Thunderbird or not is very hard to say.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is a map of the area, the yellow circle is the target area where the photo was most likely taken. 
 
A big thanks to Mark for sending in his sighting, of course we can not say for sure this is a Thunderbird but it does appear to be rather large. Mark did a nice job of at least getting a picture of the bird.
If anyone has other sightings they would like to share, you can use the link at the top of the page or contact us via email.
Thanks

the Craven Bigfoot
Bigfoot in Craven?
This post by Thomas Marcum, Thomas is the founder/leader of the cryptozoology and paranormal research organization known as The Crypto Crew. Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.


I'm a Johnny come lately to this video but wanted to share my attempt at a enhancement and my thoughts about the video in general.

First the back story to the video - A family out for a drive spots something on the side of the road. They pull the car over and shoot a short video. The video was reportedly shot in Crave, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Here is the video with some enchantments. Some zooms, slo-mo and more.


Craven Bigfoot Enhancement by CryptoTV

The original video can be viewed by Clicking here
Now I have some concerns about the video, yes it is somewhat interesting but we should proceed with caution, It seems many are quick to jump out and push videos as being a "real bigfoot" and then they turn out to be fakes. This can fuel the hoaxing craze. So let look at some points.

First there is no reaction from the person filming this "creature" and we are led to believe he was able to stop his car, get out and start filming all the while the bigfoot is just milling around on the side of the road . Secondly, if you check the person's youtube channel this is the only video they have and it was added 4 months ago. This is normally a red flag. Thirdly, if you go to the connected google+ account the person is listed as a female, but their name on youtube is Brian Johnson? Fourthly, no one in the bigfoot community had heard of the person until now.  This would lead a person to think a fake name and/or account is being used.

What about the creature itself? well you really can't see much detail, there is a figure walking along the grass line. It appears to be having a little trouble walking in the terrain. The size of the creature does not appear to be overly large or anything. You can see arm movements as it parts the tall grass and you see some hint of a neck. The figure don't appear to be in any kind of hurry to get out of sight as it walks several feet in view and then turns into the weeds. Also Craven, if you check on google maps, is a pretty populated area, which don't mean much, I guess.

In the end it is a somewhat interesting video with some red flags and it is inconclusive at best. It is worth looking at and taking into consideration but lets not anoint it a 100 percent real bigfoot.

If I had to give an answer -  I would say in my opinion it is most likely a fake/hoax. If by chance the person who filmed it could go back to the area and do a comparison video to help give us some scale, that might help.

Again, this is just my opinion and not a knock on anyone and at least it is something fairly new to look at.

Thanks

Bigfoot and Les Stroud



This is a guest post by Gordon Ambrose from The discerning man's squatch. Stop by his facebook page and give it a like. Gordon is a bigfoot enthusiast who employs critical thinking when looking at bigfoot evidence.


Les Stroud, More Credibility

For years I have enjoyed Les Stroud and his Survivor Man series. I live in a wooded area and love the Rocky Mountains which are literally my back yard, so any show that takes us into the boscage and teaches us how to use what is there to survive and then make it out again, has always had a place close to my heart.

Les is the only one I know of who actually does ...all of his own camera work and it is no easy task considering what he takes on. He goes solo, and with the immensely painstaking process of setting up his multiple cameras, hiking away from them sometimes thousands of yards over steep terrain to record his progression, then, once satisfied backtracking just as perilously to pick up his cameras and do it all over again. He shows more integrity and commitment to his show and skills than any other survivor type program I have seen. Quite frankly I personally would find it a real drag to make progress on a torturous trail that could take my life and then be forced to go back, grab my gear so I can set up for the next leg. Thankfully he does it all for us and with a smile.

You might wonder why he does this (solo) and the answer is, he is showing us true survivor skills with the same resources we would have if lost in the woods. He does not have the luxury of having a camera man, who would have rations and a long distance communicator as well as just a helping hand in any emergency… and that is the whole point of the show. He in fact is taking real risks with his own life and I have sometimes feared that one day we will read in the papers that he never made it back from filming one of his episodes. He is for real and he is really putting himself out there.

It is with my great pleasure that we have a two part special on the Science Channel that has been given the go ahead that takes on two of my favorite subjects. Surviving in the wilderness…and Bigfoot. The episodes titled Survivorman: Stalking Sasquatch, will take us the viewer, on a precarious journey with Les as he goes in search of the wild man of the woods with plenty of high quality cameras in tow.

We can expect to see the same kind of dangerous terrain that he usually undertakes, but instead of focusing on getting out, he will be focusing on going big. As in Bigfoot. A quote from the Hollywood reporter: “Stroud goes deep into the territory of the infamous Bigfoot to survive with few supplies and even fewer rations, "smack dab in the middle of the monster’s hotspots." He also will delve into the truth behind the legend as he investigates the whereabouts of this infamous creature."

The fellow known lovingly as Survivor Man has on at least two instances given his take on the legend of Bigfoot and has had relayed some personal experiences that indicate that he believes there may be some truth to this creature. Here is a man that knows what it is like being as remote as possible on the outskirts of where humanity dare not go and has impeccable knowledge of the flora and fauna. If anyone has a chance of having an eyewitness encounter with Sasquatch and then being credible in his report, it is Les and quite literally in his minimalism approach, Les is more.

For me it is a win-win situation as I love his show anyway, but with him keeping an ever keen eye out and camera for something that will bring us closer to an age old question, I find that this special will be extra special… for anyone with an interest in Sasquatch.
Show is set to premier the first quarter of 2014

Ready, set…Bigfoot!

Bigfoot in Canada
Enchanted Forest, BC, Canada
I have been taking some time and going back to some older videos that I enhanced and running them through some better software attempting to get a better video. This one here was a pretty good video, the quality is not that great but it could have very well been a real bigfoot. More details below the video. Adjust to HD settings, it helps a little.


This video was shot in 2006 in the Enchanted Forest, BC, Canada. They described the as being around 7 foot tall and hunched over. This is fairly close to Washington and Oregon.

Thanks

A Look at Bigfoot Researcher Rene Dahinden
Rene Dahinden with track cast. I think this is the cripple foot cast.
I thought I'd take some time and look back at some of the people who made huge inroads for the bigfoot community and select someone to write about.
Often times there is not much known about researchers who started researching 40+ years ago and at times they seem to have been forgotten by many.
So the first person I selected to write about is Rene Dahinden. I hope to maybe write about some of the other "old timers" at some point.

Rene Dahinden was born August 22, 1930 and past away on April 18, 2001.
Mr.Dahinden was born in the town of Weggis, Switzerland but moved to Canada in 1953,He lived there for the rest of his life but made many trips all around the world promoting bigfoot.
While living there he worked on a dairy farm in Alberta,Canada.

Dahinden became interested in the mystery of bigfoot not long after moving to Canada and after hearing a CBS news broadcast on the radio about a expedition to search for the creature in the Himalayas.
Rene was talking to his dairy farm boss, Wilbur Willich, about how it would be something to go to the Himalayas and "search for that thing".
Mr. Willich replied "Hell, you don’t have to go that far. They got them things in British Columbia".
It wasn't long after this that Rene got to discovering the local stories about sasquatch and launched his own search for the creature.

Rene Dahinden in his home,surrounded by his bigfoot stuff.


Around 1956 Dahinden met British Columbia researcher John Green and the two of them conducted field research together on several occasions. Dahinden did decades of field research,witness interviews,taking photos of tracks and making plaster cast, all the while promoting the idea of sasquatch being a real creature.

In 1967 when the Roger Patterson- Bob Gimlin bigfoot film came out,many took sides about the film, if it was real or not. Dahinden became a supporter and advocate of the film and wanted to bring the scientific attention to it that he thought it deserved. It is noted that Dahinden and Green showed the Patterson-Gimlin film at several events and to many people around the world, Dahinden even showed it in Russia. Dahinden estimated the weight of "Patty",the creature seen in the Patterson-Gimlin film,to be about 700 pounds.
Dahinden acquired the photographic images of the Patterson–Gimlin footage and it is believed by some that today Dahinden's estate still owns 51% of the rights to the Patterson-Gimlin film.

In 1973 Rene Dahinden's first and only book entitled "Sasquatch" was published.The book was written with the help of Don Hunter. The book covers stories about Beck at Ape Canyon assault, the Ostman Kidnapping, the Baumann attack, Cripplefoot tracks, and Patterson's film.
The book is still available today and has approximately 202 pages with 8 B&W photo pages, including frames from the famous BLUFF CREEK film. I've seen the paperback version of this book for sale used for under $4 and at that price it's well worth the money.

At one point Dahinden worked at a boat rental place and then later at Vancouver Gun Club, where he was a lead miner,he would shovel up dirt and sift it much like a person would for Gold. As the people on the firing range would fire their shot guns small bits/balls of lead would end up in the field, he would recover the lead balls (aka buckshot) and sell it back to the gun club. This was an idea job for Dahinden as he could work when he wanted to or when he needed bill or research money.He would work 4 or 5 months a year and earned about $4000, which was enough for him.


Rene Dahinden working recovering lead.

In 1976 Dahinden told CBC Television "I will keep on searching 'til I find the damn thing". Dahindend was determined and faithful in his quest but the stress of it all began to take a toll on him. 
Over time Dahinden became more bitter towards the scientific community for not accepting the evidence and existence of sasqautch. He called them the "100 percent boys" because they wanted a body and Dahinden wanted to kill a sasquatch and prove it to science.
He also wanted to make a lot of money off of killing a sasquatch. He was ask what's your price? he replied "no comment". The reporter ask him "is it 1 million dollars?" he replied "I won't even get out of bed for that". 
It was this bitterness that made many call Dahinden "brash and opinionated" but the fact is that he was fed up with nay sayers,exploiters and scientist who refused to accept any evidence.Plus at this point he had about 20+ years of research under his belt and had a right to be opinionated on the subject.
         
In 1987 the film Harry and the Hendersons came out, the French Canadian bigfoot hunter character in the film was based on Dahinden.The character was played by actor David Suchet. It is unclear,at least to me, if Dahinden made any money from the movie but all signs point to no.

In 1997,Dahinden appeared in a popular television ads for Kokanee beer.The brewers of Kokanee beer, acknowledging Rene’s life long pursuit of Bigfoot, asked him to play himself in a commercial which featured him standing in front of his small mobile home. An off camera narrator asks Rene if he had ever used British Columbian made Kokanee beer to lure the Sasquatch out of hiding. Do you think I’m crazy or something, asks Dahinden, unaware that behind him a Sasquatch is sneaking into his trailer to make off with a case of beer.It turns out the commercial is still pretty funny even today.

Here is the Kokanee Commercial - both version
 
 
Although some considered Dahinden brash and opinionated, many in the bigfoot world liked and got along really well with him. As the above commercial shows he did have a good sense of humor.
Dahinden's contribution to the search for sasquatch should not be over looked. He once stated he had seen over 3000 sasquatch tracks, but his research continued many years after that statement.
Dahinden was a student of the mystery of sasquatch,logging countless hours reading and studying books,photos and reports. He advanced the field of bigfoot research and dedicated most of his life to researching the mystery of bigfoot. At over 40+ years worth of research his knowledge of sasquatch was vast. Dahinden was one of a handful of ground breaking researchers in the field of bigfoot and regardless of your opinion of him he deserves respect for his service to the bigfoot world.

Letter from Canada
Well..it isn't costing me any money...but what about Rick's recent video where he is telling about selling 250 dvds ? He is costing someone money but I guess no one is making people purchase the video. I have to question.. is it all about money?  is there anything to do with actually filming and collection real evidence of bigfoot ..don't get me wrong, I'm not against researchers making some money but I do not expect them to be untruthful and /or fake evidence and in some cases just lie.
I will gladly pay to see someones real work if they are honest about it and have something of interest on film.
Most researchers spend their own money and time doing research but to be dishonest is a discredit to all true bigfoot research and to the human race.
So I can assume that Tim and Rick will be working together in the research field soon.... or maybe they already have been... it could be interesting to see what they can come up with....maybe a dead skunk ape press conference on CNN...who knows for sure....stay tuned!
Thanks
