"Bugs", a frequent caller into the Coast to Coast AM radio show claimed to have killed and buried 2 bigfoot in the Texas panhandle in the 1970s.
Nobody could figure out who "Bugs" was.
From Cryptomundo website: The twelve-year running saga of “Bugs” and the claim that the guy killed two Bigfoot and buried them may,
thankfully, be near its end. We have discussed “Bugs” on Cryptomundo before, here, here, and here. from Wikipedia... “Bugs” - Aging
farmer who has repeatedly told of his account of shooting and burying two Bigfoot creatures back in the 1970s in the Texas Panhandle, initially
thinking they were bears. Bugs has mailed a map of the location of this “burial” to Art Bell, to be released to the public upon Bugs’ death.
During his first appearance in 1996, Bugs said he had taken a dozen Polaroid photos of the creatures he would be willing to send to Art. None of the
alleged photos have yet been made available. from Cryptomundo... Now, thanks to the blog The Regulator, the rather supposedly unbalanced soul
behind “Bugs” has been outed. Ed Hale of Wellington, Texas, the alleged racist owner of Plains Radio, is the mysterious “Bugs.” Here’s
how The Regulator gives the run-up to their Eureka moment: An astute Freeper posted a link to a very interesting YouTube video and wondered if the
man called ‘Bugs’ that was being interviewed in the clip could possibly be the one and only Ed Hale. Before I had even listened to the clip,
the name ‘Bugs’ definitely sounded familiar. You see, Ed’s photobucket account name is ‘bugshale’ and a little more googling finds some
comments about Hillary Clinton and oddly, an ad where Ed is selling some western wear. After listening to about five minutes of the YouTube, I was
convinced and shared with ZeN, and our two Ed Hale specialists neonzx and GreatGrey. They all agreed that it is definitely Ed. Since the
“outing,” Ed Hale has semi-”confessed” on his radio program, saying that he was indeed the Art Bell call-in person who used the name
“Bugs.” Besides admitting that he is “Bugs,” he has said the killing story is “true.” Evidence? Well, too bad, but it is gone. Hale says
that federal agents showed up at his house, made him dig up the bodies, actually bones, and the remains were confiscated. They were spirited away and
are being hidden by the government. Okay. We’ve all been here before.... "
Why is it that people continue to claim to have killed a bigfoot when they haven't? All that does is shine a negative light on cryptozoological
reasearch. If somebody ever actually does discover a bigfoot or yeti,whatever, nobody is going to believe it. Anyways, just though you guys would
apprecieate this story.
Oh, and by the way, Ed Hale is allegedly raceist and one of the founders of the "Obama isn't born in the US" stuff.
BTW, I'm not saying anything about the truth of this article, I didn't write it or really reasearch it, just wanted to point it out as I thought
people might be interested. Personally, I do believe in a bigfoot-type creature and while I have heard Bugs on the air a few times, I tend to take a
skeptics look at him, as he has so far failed to produce any hard evidence.
Incidently...I haven't figure out how to "post from external source" yet...
Thanks RFBurns for the explanation!
