a reply to: WanDash
Apologies WanDash! I had actually typed out a reply to you, but lost it. I'm STILL unused to this new reply system. It's great for smaller posts, but
for longer posts where you want to quote/reply to several people I find myself accidentally closing the wrong tab or going back on the wrong page. I
actually lost the reply and then sort of sighed and went to bed.
Now, as to your original post and, I have to say, this is all my opinion. And that opinion is, unfortunately, based on shoddy reporting from the media
and a lack of general information. As more facts of the story become clear (or are made up), this opinion will change.
I don't believe his friend did anything to harm him.
I don't believe he was chasing after his dog because it had run off.
I believe that whatever spooked the dog, spooked him and he was pure animal when he ran away. No conscious thought, no rational mind, just
I do NOT believe Byers started looking for Herdman immediately.
I believe Byers, like Herdman and his dog, was spooked and bolted. My reasoning for that is simply because of the reported state he was found in. He
was confused, tired, and reportedly had become lost. If you were searching for someone the first thing you would do is make sure you can find your own
I believe if the searchers headed up to the nearby creek, they'll probably find him.
it would almost have to be something that could swoop down from the trees, snatch someone back up into the trees
Or something that had been watching and tracking for a long time, that was patient and never hurried, that bolted in at just the right moment to take
advantage of a turned back.
As to whether I have a theory or a suspicion in regards to the Missing 411 books. I have several, some mundane, some out there. I'm withholding
judgement, however until I've read the latest one.
Now, lots of people say that Paulides' books are about Bigfoot taking people. They're not. He lays the facts, and leaves it at that. I say to those
people maybe Bigfoot is taking them. Maybe it isn't. Maybe it's aliens, fairies, or ManBearPig. Maybe it's a big footed Alien fairy named
It doesn't matter what
it is that's doing it, what matters is nothing is being done by the people who are charged with public safety to
determine what's happening. They don't even admit there's a problem!
Even with the release of his books, and the phenomenal effort he put into writing them, there are still billions of people who don't know, and will
still journey to the Parks (something Paulides applauds. He doesn't want people to stop going, he wants them to start going smart!). If you own the
books, loan them to friends, colleagues, neighbours! If you personally know police officers or sheriffs in some of the places mentioned, let them read
your copies, and ask them what they, as lawmen, think about it. Tell them to pass it around to their colleagues! The more people who know about it,
the more pressure will be put on the park service to start keeping the lists they say they can't make! Fifteen minutes writing on a piece of paper is
all it'd take!!!!
