possible that someone told him that they
had one in captivity.
Here is a post
from cryptozoology.com :
I received the following response today (Monday 8/22) from the editor of Happy Camp News:
No,he didn't capture one. He was promised a Bigfoot by a woman who
said her grandsons shot and injured one (that's how I heard it anyhow).
But now I've heard from a friend that Tom has decided that the woman was scamming him. I think he paid her for the "medical bills". We'll just
have to wait and see how he plans to deal with his misinformation. Editor.
So I think the money was genuinely for an expedition.
If you listen to the clip from C2C, in some places he takes care to say, "one is in captivity." He doesn't say where.
But he still lied.
His other quote on C2C was , "We've had one in captivity now in the other location for quite a while now." He was
talking about 3 camps just before, so "the other location" implies his camp, not to mention the "we."
He also said, "We have a lot of this on film." If there is no animal, there is no film.
I can believe he was scammed. If he had said that someone else had captured it, no problem. But his exaggerations and lies totally ruined his
credibility with me.
