A Monstrous Q&A

I was recently interviewed extensively about my cryptozoological investigations by the British-based website Paranormal The Otherside. We covered a lot of ground, such as how I got into crypto, my expeditions to Puerto Rico in search of the Chupacabras, the Patterson-Bigfoot film and much more.

Here's the link for those who may be interested.

Nick---loved the interview. Particularly the advice on being familiar with the local flora and fauna in a given area. I can't stress how essential that is. I've watched much-loved programs like DESTINATION TRUTH and GHOST HUNTERS INTERNATIONAL fall down on this. DT when it was investigating a "ghost village" in Peru and recorded some sounds they suggested were "spirits" (they were owls--they have owls that burrow in the ground there and the cry is distinctive) and GHI and its "silver shadow" sighting at the (deserted) Eden Hotel in Argentina (baby jaguar not a ghost although again this went undebunked by the show).

But this does no good with the "true believers" of cryptozoology. They tell you they have a recording of Bigfoot. You say, that's a screech owl." And they say "No, that's Bigfoot IMITATING a screech owl."

Bigfoot needs to do Vegas....
