Safuan said the P-Team had tracked down and captured a Bigfoot about six-foot tall in Cambodia three years ago.
"We will be bringing it down for an exhibition here as soon as we have enough money to make the transport arrangements," promised Safuan, 48.
"The team members come from Malaysia and neighbouring countries like Indonesia and Cambodia and we go wherever we are needed."
Bigfoot Captured in Cambodia in 2003? Exhibited Soon?
Safuan Abu Bakar says we all will be seeing a captured Johor-like Hominid soon. What is this all about? Have we vanished down the rabbit’s hole finally and found ourselves in a twilight zone we did not know about existed in Malaysia?

No, no it's not. It's like saying........... people here have reported SEEING the gorilla in the attic for thousands of years, but so far we've been busy looking at the rats in the basement.
What can you expect to find when all but the fringe in science take this seriously?
You have the established elite in scientific study basically calling large parts of the population around the world liars and crackpots.
If you want to make fun of someone...... there's a good target, that kind of arrogance thats so pervasive in elitist science circles.

UTTER TRIPE .... science has scoured the entire planet -- and reported its findings --
extra ordinary claims require some evidence -- why has a cryptid never been captured or discovered dead ??
as for your " sightings " wht do you take all claims that agree with you @ face value -- the " sightings " going back 1000s of years are bound up with mythologies that are patently false
why do you cherry pick what you believe ?? - and worse then call science arrogant
For the first time in 20 years, scientists have identified a new primate species in Africa—the highland mangabey. The shy monkey species was already known to local tribespeople called the Wanyakyusa.
Species Diversity in "Urban Jungle"
A BioBlitz happening just miles from the White House might sound alarming, but have no fear.
The Potomac Gorge BioBlitz held last month was a 30-hour safari for seldom seen and underappreciated wildlife.
The blitz revealed more than a thousand species living in the suburban and urban environments of the Potomac River Gorge.
A globally rare species of snail, a beetle new to Virginia, and a species of fly never before found east of Iowa were among the surprises revealed by the blitz.
20,000 New Species Discovered in 2005
The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature expects that more than 20,000 species will be described by zoologists in 2005.
This year's discoveries include four species of lemurs from the island of Madagascar, a monkey from Tanzania, an odd-ball rodent from Vietnam, a parasitic ‘vampire fish’ from the Amazon.
While Planet Earth is becoming an increasingly smaller and more familiar world as every corner is explored and colonized, there remain millions of species undiscovered and undocumented. A number of significant species have been discovered in recent months, revealing humans’ huge gaps in knowledge of the world around them.
Once, the komodo dragon was thought to exist only in folklore. What other mythical beasts might we find if we look hard enough? Helen Brown meets the man on the trail of the ninki-nanka
Published: 12 July 2006
As you read this, a small group of intrepid, pink-nosed Brits are creeping through the Gambian jungle, dodging crocodiles and cobras, in the hope of spotting the legendary "ninki-nanka". (OK, it sounds like a Goon Show plot, but bear with me.) This fabulously named creature is said by locals to resemble a giant reptile, up to 30 feet long and dwelling in the murk of the mangrove swamps.
The "dragon" is rumoured to look rather like a game of zoological "consequences", possessing the body of a crocodile, the neck of a giraffe and the head of a horse with three horns. Less fantastically, the team's leader, Richard Freeman of the Centre for Fortean Zoology, suspects the ninki-nanka of being a species of colossal monitor lizard. "Whatever the truth," he says, "this is the first dedicated expedition to search for this animal."
But the Indonesian government is planning to create the world's largest palm oil plantation in this area which would devastate forests, wildlife and indigenous communities. The scheme, funded by the China Development Bank, is expected to cover an area of 1.8 million hectares - half the size of The Netherlands.
Callum Rankine, Head of Species for WWF-UK said: "This is an incredible find, and highlights the urgent need to conserve the unique forests in the Heart of Borneo. This creature - whatever it is - hasn't been seen since the pictures were taken and is therefore likely to occur in very low numbers. It would be a tragedy if it became extinct before it was even described to science - and that is a very real risk."
