At the 5th Annual Texas Bigfoot Conference in Jefferson, Texas, October 15-16, 2005, and the Bates College Cryptozoology Symposium in Lewiston, Maine, October 28-29, 2005, Loren Coleman will be unveiling the details of a $1 million bounty to encourage the public to assist in the safe capture of a Bigfoot, Yeti, Lake Monster, Sea Serpent, or other cryptozoological specimen.
This is for real. Cryptozoology's creatures can truly come in from the cold.
Details to follow. Stay tuned. The time is very near

If you shot one you could pretty much name your price. The Scientific Community will pay 8 plus million for a good T-rex skeleton. A one of a kind Bigfoot body I would expect to fetch far more at auction.
The study of creatures, such as the Sasquatch, whose existence has not been substantiated.
Found this on Loren Coleman
She just announced this on her website Oct. 8, 2005.

By the way, Loren Coleman is a man. And if I'm not correct, isn't he the one that said he had caught a real, live bigfoot not so long ago, and ended up to be a scam? What does he want to pay a million dollars for a bigfoot for anyway, he isn't a 'real' scientist.

I also knew of a farmer in Tasmania who's seen Tasmanian Tigers still alive and well on his ruggered property but valued his and their peacefull lives more than any fame that would come from "proving" it and good on him for that attitude.
There was also a claim of Tassie Tigers being sighted and photographed on the Australian mainland. Anyone who has 'lost' their dogs, who are trained to come when called, in our Australian bush would understand how easy it is for a shy and clever animal that doesn't want to be found, to hide.

LEWISTON, Maine --A Maine scientist is preparing to release details of a $1 million reward for a photograph that leads to the live capture of Bigfoot, the abominable snowman or the Loch Ness Monster
The $1 million bounty would be paid by a company to anyone who produces a photograph that leads to the live capture of one of the three creatures, Coleman said.
"We don't want people running around with guns trying to kill something to get the money," Coleman said. "It's not a contest, either. It's a very specific bounty that depends on the permanent capture of a live specimen, with emphasis on 'live.'"
Coleman, a cryptozoologist who is considered one of the world's leading experts on Bigfoot, said he would release some details about the bounty at a Bigfoot conference over the weekend in Texas. He's saving the rest for Lewiston, where he will speak at the symposium on Oct. 28 on the Bates campus.
