I beleive this creature (Big ape walking like a human) is there somewhere .. and its harder to find a proof compare to Aliens & UFOs... because they
are only a few remaining .. sadly
Around the Tibet it would be the best place to start an expedition
im sure the monks know something but wont tell .. for good reasons
since there are almost disapear
how many bigfoot in the world today ?? maybe 25 in totals hiding in the mountains ..
the monks did good not revealing any secret .. or it would be doomsday for the bigfoots
all of them would be dead by now .. if their secret was revealed
Rest of the CNN story :
Big foot on Wikipedia
Scientists in China's Hubei Province have announced they are looking for additional members for its special team tasked with tracking down the
The Hubei Wild Man Research Association (HWMRA) is recruiting researchers internationally to join the group's search in the Shennongjia forest region,
according to state-run news agency Xinhua.
Luo Baosheng, vice president of the HWMRA, told Xinhua that the organization is comprised of more than 100 scientists and explorers who have been
chasing the ape-like animal for years. The last time a organized search took place was in the early 1980s, Xinhua reported Saturday.
"Most importantly, we want the team members to be devoted, as there will be a lot of hard work in the process," Luo told Xinhua. Team members are also
expected to be in good physical health and preferably 25 to 40 years of age, he added.
The search for the phantom, known as the "Yeren" or "Wild Man" in China, will cost at least $1.5 million U.S. dollars, according to Wang Shancai, a
member of the the group and an archaeologist with the Hubei Provincial Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology. The group is seeking funding from
various companies and institutions, Wang said.
Chinese researchers have been searching since the 1970s. There have been more than 400 reported sightings of the half-man, half-ape in the Shennongjia
area. In the past, explorers have found inconclusive evidence that researchers claimed to be proof of Bigfoot's existence, including hair, footprints,
excrement and a sleeping nest, Xinhua reported.
Witnesses say the creature walks upright like a human but is much taller, and is covered in hair head-to-toe.
The search for Yeti is not restricted to China.
People in the United States have been looking for years. The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO) claims it's the oldest and largest
organization with the goal of finding Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch. The organization relies heavily on eyewitness reports from residents.
According to BFRO's website, the animal began to be referred to as Bigfoot by journalists in the 1950s after a spat of sightings reported in northern
Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, is purportedly an ape-like creature that inhabits forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region of North America.
Bigfoot is usually described as a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid. The term "sasquatch" is an anglicized derivative of the word "Sésquac" which means
"wild man" in a Salish Native American language.
A majority of scientists discount the existence of Bigfoot and consider it to be a combination of folklore, misidentification, and hoax, rather
than a legitimate animal, in part because some estimate large numbers necessary to maintain a breeding population. Nevertheless, Bigfoot is one
of the more famous examples of a cryptid within cryptozoology and an enduring legend.
So why China is now taking this bigfoot legend seriously .. ??
spending big money on a expedition like that .. im sure they have something concret
this is a good news for cryptozoologist
i just hope they dont capture it .. and torture it with scientists and their silly test
