The only thing I can think of at the moment is "The Minnesota Iceman", not Asia though of course.



The Minnesota Iceman is a purported man-like creature frozen in a block of ice and displayed at state fairs or carnivals in and around Rollingstone, Minnesota, and Milwaukee on and around December 17, 1968 as a "missing link". Obviously male in anatomy, it was human-like, 6 ft (~1.8 m) tall, hairy, with large hands and feet, very dark brown hair about 3 - 4 inches (~9 cm) long, and a flattened nose. One of its arms appeared to be broken and one of its eyes appeared to have been knocked out of its socket, allegedly by a bullet that was supposed to have entered the animal's head from behind. If genuine, the specimen would be one of the most significant zoological discoveries of all time, and while some have suggested the creature was a genuine bigfoot or yeti, others contend that it was a hoax.

Frank Hansen owned the "iceman", and made a number of contradictory statements as to its origin and how he obtained it. These statements led to criticism and charges of a hoax. Hansen reportedly claimed he had a real frozen creature and a replica, but that he only exhibited the replica due to the original's value and fragility. While touring with the iceman, Hansen was reportedly detained by Canadian customs officials, who were concerned he was transporting a cadaver, or a possible health risk. Hansen reportedly contacted his senator, Walter Mondale, who was able to "pull the right strings to let the Iceman come back home."

Two trained scientists, Ivan Sanderson and Bernard Heuvelmans, examined the "iceman" and concluded it was a genuine creature, noting "putrefaction where some of the flesh had been exposed from the melted ice." Heuvelmans wrote a scientific paper about the iceman and even named it as a new species with neanderthal affinities, Homo pongoides, and theorised it was killed in Vietnam during the war. Sanderson wrote an article for Argosy magazine and spoke about the "iceman" on television. The Smithsonian Institution was reportedly briefly interested in the iceman, asking Dr. John Napier to investigate, then suggesting the FBI investigate, due to reports that the creature had been shot and killed. Shortly thereafter, the iceman disappeared from public display, withdrawn, Hansen said, by the California-based owner. It was later replaced by a similar, though different, exhibit which was clearly a model and not as accurate in appearance as the original. In a 1995 interview, Hansen reported that "I never did find out" if the iceman was genuine.

It's interesting how all these "artifacts" keep disappearing all the time.

thanks for your reply sherpa. This is not the same photo and does not appear to be the same creature. equally interesting photo though.

star for you.


the one in question was black and white also but a lot more sasquatchy.

not sure of name but Yeti de Bourgeneuf? is that the one you mean? I don't have a photo of it but you could look it up.

Hope that helped.

Wow that's an awesome story. Never heard of this before.

I'm sure they DID have an actual body. Examined it. And then had it taken away at some point. But not before they were allowed to show the replica to the public.

VERY strange. And supposedly this specimen was killed in Vietnam? Incredible. Just furthers the idea that Sasquatch-like-species are in every continent.

I posted that picture last year in the middle of another thread. Actually, I think I posted a link to the pic. I believe it was a thread about the night time picture of the Skunk Ape with the long hair.

Not many posters responded. Should have started a new thread about it.

Anyway, I don't remember the name of the thread but I do know you can easily find it in the picture section over at the BFRO forum.

I'm pretty sure that it's the one you are referring to. I can't do the legwork for you right now but if I have time later I'll go and sift it out.

IMO This is a real bigfoot or yeti or sasquatch. The anatomical structure is sound along with the face and hair. It would be quite the elaborate hoax if not real. your thoughts?

Oh my GOD.

If that is a photograph of a real organic object...

just oh my god. I am going to assume that was the replica model they were using, because that photograph is giving the creeps thinking about it being a real specimen.

You see, I have a thread 'Why is Bigfoot still considered a hoax' or something like that - and I base most of my points on the Patterson footage.

But that's just footage. This is a real specimen. Was it real? Was this the real deal?

If so, this is by far the most astounding thing I have EVER seen in the cryptozoology department and this is the first time I have ever heard of it


I swear, I would not be surprised if this were real and people just took it for granted. Nowadays we have footage of Bigfoot and all kinds of other evidence and it satisfies NOBODY. The irony. So painful.

Take a trip over to the BFRO forum as they have most of the info I know about it. I first saw it around early 07' and thought it was more widely known about but but I guess not.

It never struck me to be a gaff of any sort but if you look at the penis it would seem that this BF had been circumcised. (I believe I mentioned this point last year as well) However, I am no expert on ones that are not and frankly only really know anything about my own. It looks permanently erect (petrified) but I don't know if that's what an erect uncircumcised one would look like. Anyone?

Mods: I'm trying to be as clinical and diplomatic as possible here but I think it is vital to talk about it.

I can't find any BFRO mentions


I also noticed the penis looks circumsized. That could be a definite sign of hoaxing. Such a feature is absolutely native to Humans alone, every other mammal on the planet has a foreskin. But is it evidence of a hoax?

To be honest: the thing looks damn real to me.

How can a "Iceman" live in Viet Nam? ....do they have winters there that are that harsh or was the specimen just frozen for the sake of preserving it and called a Iceman?

Another alien transport unit composed of electric aliens, note the pattern of green and purple outside the body. Those are a continuation of the of the same entities that make up the body. all bigfoot's are atu's

What? How do you come by this colored image? What PhotoShop filter did you use?

First I must apologize to all as my memory didn't serve me as well as I thought. The correct forum was "bigfootforums.com" and not BFRO. Here is the thread in it's entirety:

www.bigfootforums.com...

Again, please allow me to say I'm sorry for obviously causing some to go on a search for a dead end.

All's well that ends well...
