Black skaters, Black-owned businesses and stories to follow and support

I posted this as a comment over on the Black Lives Matter sticky, but I want this to be it's own post so it reaches as many people as possible. If you have more businesses and skaters you'd like to add, please comment below and I'll add them to this list! Looking especially hard for women or NB skaters!!
Trying to find information about Black skaters on Google is plain difficult and sad, I’d say over 90% of results are listings for buying black skates, or stock images of Black people skating. It goes to show how little representation the sport offers Black culture, when Black culture and music is so deeply integrated into the sport.
Here's a list of Black skaters, Black-owned businesses and stories to follow and support:
Before the rest of the world knew who they were, the pioneers of rap, including Dr. Dre, Queen Latifa, and N.W.A., got their starts performing in rinks, Skateland, a well-known rink in Northridge, was the venue for a memorable N.W.A performance later depicted in the biopic Straight Outta Compton.

NFL Week 4 In-Depth Game by Game Breakdown

Tune in to twitch.tv/TeamRiseorFall at 12:30 pm ET as we are giving away $222 tickets on air! And upvote this article. It was written through our company blog program. The dude did it for free. Tremendous effort!

Indianapolis Colts @ Chicago Bears O/U 45

Indianapolis Colts The Colts are coming off an absolute shellacking of the Jets. However, it was the defense that did most of the damager scoring two defensive touchdowns. The offense to this point has put up pedestrian numbers. Phillip Rivers, the new signal-caller, has yet to throw for multiple touchdowns this season and has only cracked 300 yards passing just once. The Colts wide receivers’ group has been hit with some injuries. Parris Campbell was put on IR though it doesn’t look like he’ll miss the season and rookie Michael Pittman will miss extended time due to surgery on his leg. What this means is that we can narrow down the target pool in Indy to TY, Zach Pascal, Mo Alie-Cox, and Jack Doyle. Looking over DVOA stats, it looks like the Bears possess a top 5 defense but struggle against the run. I would look toward Jonathan Taylor this week. He was chalk last week and didn’t put up the numbers we expected but with 20+ touch upside, I would suggest having some shares.
Chicago Bears Quarterback controversy? Mitchell Trubisky was benched in the second half of last week’s game against the Falcons, and Nick Foles led the charge on the comeback. Bears coach Matt Nagy has already come out and said Nick Foles will be the starter this weekend. This will be a huge plus for Bears’ pass catchers. While the Colts defense is formidable, ranked first in DVOA against the pass, I still want them to prove it against someone other than Sam Darnolds of the world. Allen Robinson again led the way with 13 targets, and I would expect that to continue with Foles under center. Jimmy Graham and Anthony Miller caught Foles’ other two touchdown passes. If we think the Bears are going to be in a negative game script these pass catchers are worthy of a GPP dart. Chicago lost their pass-catching running back Tarik Cohen to what is being reported as a torn ACL. This could mean an uptick in usage for David Montgomery if the Bears can keep the game close. Montgomery lead the Bears in carries last week with 14 and caught two of three targets.

New Orleans Saints @ Detroit Lions O/U 54

New Orleans Saints Now we’re talking! This is the first of eight games with an implied total of over 50 points. The Saint’s offense has looked a bit out of sorts to start the season and to add insult to injury (pun intended) they’ve been without star wide receiver Michael Thomas since his early exit week one with a high ankle sprain. According to Adam Schefter, Thomas is eyeing a return this week. He does carry a suppressed price on DraftKings due to his injury and this very well may be the cheapest we see him all year. Yet he is the highest priced receiver on FanDuel – go figure. Alvin Kamara did Alvin Kamara things on Sunday night against the Packers. He only ran the ball six times for 58 yards but was targeted 14 times through the air and brought in 13 of them for 139 yards and two touchdowns. Drew Brees just hasn’t been the Brees of old and that’s to be expected as father time is undefeated. If Michael Thomas plays, I like him, Bress, and Kamara as a sneaky GPP stack. I don’t fear Detroit’s bottom third defense.
Detroit Lions Detroit is coming off a big win against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. The team had an injection of life with the return of wide receiver Kenny Golladay. The New Orleans defense is a pass funnel, ranking high against the run while forcing teams to throw the ball. Considering that the Lions choose to run a three-headed backfield I will choose to fade Adrian Peterson, Kerryon Johnson, and D’Andre Swift. I will be looking at Lion’s pass catchers. It looked like Golladay got through the game unscathed from his previous hamstring injury. It’s safe to assume he will continue to be Matthew Stafford’s go-to target as long as he’s healthy. I’m not overly excited about tight end TJ Hockenson or WR2 Marvin Jones Jr, but if you believe the volume will be there feel free to plug them in your lineups.

Arizona Cardinals @ Carolina Panthers O/U 52

Arizona Cardinals The Cardinals are coming off a disappointing loss to the Lions at home this past Sunday. While Kyler Murray looked unstoppable the first two weeks of the season he crashed back down to earth in week three. I don’t expect him to be grounded for long. This will be an “easy” get-right spot for the Cards. The Panthers rank in the bottom of the league against the run and pass. Kyler Murray will continue to target Nuk Hopkins at a record rate. Hopkins has 37 targets through three games, and what’s even scarier is that he only has one touchdown – can you say touchdown regression? If you’re feeling frisky you can fire up Kenyan Drake. I know he’s left a sour taste in the mouth of those who’ve played him in recent weeks but this is a prime spot to break out of his current rut.
Carolina Panthers The Panthers are missing their main man Christian McCaffrey who will be out a few more weeks, and honestly, I wouldn’t expect the team to push him to return anytime soon. There are still some spots that catch my attention in GPPs. While I wouldn’t force Teddy Bridgewater into my lineups I wouldn’t mind one of these pass catchers. If you’re going to stack the Cardinals I think D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson, and even Curtis Samuel can be viable options to run it back. If running back Mike Davis continues to fill the role of McCaffrey and get McCaffrey-like touches (21 touches this past Sunday), he is an option as well.

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Cincinnati Bengals O/U 49

Jacksonville Jaguars I’ll let you in a little secret of mine. If you’re MMEing I like this game as a sneaky game stack. Jacksonville is throwing the ball nearly 64% of the time, most likely due to its defense being an absolute sieve. Wide receiver DK Chark missed last Thursday’s game against Miami due to a chest injury and has not been cleared to play this week. If Chark misses this week, Keelan Cole and rookie Laviska Shenault will continue to receive a majority of the target share. You can’t forget about James Robinson. He continues to produce as he gets the opportunity.
Cincinnati Bengals This is the part of the game I’m stacking if I’m looking to MME. Joe Burrow has looked the part of being the number one pick in this year’s draft. He’s looked cool, calm, and collected and I think he’s in a smash spot. Jacksonville defense is a shell of what it was a few years ago and I fully expect Burrow to shine. I’m also looking for a Joe Mixon breakout game. He’s averaged 20 touches each of the first three games and if the Bengals jump out early I can see the team feeding him. A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd lead the teams in targets per game with nine and eight, respectively. Tee Higgins flashed last Sunday with two short touchdown passes. Plant your flag on who you think will produce and move on!

Cleveland Browns @ Dallas Cowboys O/U 55.5

Cleveland Browns This is an interesting week for the Browns. If they want to compete with the Cowboys they’re going to have to put up points. Baker Mayfield has been underwhelming so far this season and I can see the Browns trying to control the clock to keep the potent Cowboy offense off the field. If we feel like this is the route they’re going to take we can look toward both Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. Both running backs have been used, but I’m having a hard time investing that much salary on both sites into a timeshare. Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham are both in play and are reasonable priced on both sites are if the game script follows suit the Browns will be playing catch-up having to throw the ball.
Dallas Cowboys What can we say about this team that has not already been said? We have a home favorite with a potent offense going against a bottom third defense. Dak has been on fire the last two weeks and I don’t see him slowing down this week. Even with one of the best running backs in the league the Cowboys just flat out refuse to establish the run. The Cowboy’s offensive line has been the monster unit we’ve seen the last few years which can attribute to the fact they haven’t fed Zeke. The difference this year is that Zeke has been getting targets out of the backfield, so he is still averaging around 24 touches per game. The wide receiver core of the Cowboys is arguably the best in the league. Amari Cooper leads the charge averaging over ten targets per game, followed by the rookie CeeDee Lamb at seven per game, then Michael Gallup with six per game. Touchdown variance can and will bite you on the bottom so plant your flag on who you think scores and move on. Also, don’t sleep on Blake Jarwin’s replacement Dalton Schultz who has seen ten and six targets since Jarwin’s injury.

Minnesota Vikings @ Houston Texans O/U 54

Minnesota Vikings Dalvin Cook finally has the breakout game we’ve been waiting for (22/181/1). The Texans trot out one of the league’s worst rushing defenses, giving up an average of 188 yards a game on the ground at 5.2 yards per carry. Kirk Cousins isn’t in play for me as he’s struggled mightily this season throwing interceptions in all three games and multiple picks in two games. I’m not overly interested in the pass catchers other than Adam Theilen. I know Justin Jefferson had a breakout game but until the rookie can prove it consistently he’ll not be in my player pool.
Houston Texans If I’m attacking this game I’m stacking Deshaun Watson and one of his receivers, while running it back with either Theilen or Cook. The Vikings defense is middle of the road defending the run but bottom of the league against the pass. Fuller looks to be free of the hamstring that was hindering him for what seems like forever, but proceed with caution as soft tissue injuries tend to linger. If David Johnson continues to build on his touches he’s a viable play.

Seattle Seahawks @ Miami Dolphins O/U 54.5

Seattle Seahawks The Seahawks will be very chalky on this slate. Russell Wilson is playing out of his mind with throwing 14 touchdowns to one interception in three games this season. While he is not doing as much damage on the group he still provides a nice rushing floor. Chris Carson was hurt late last game against the Cowboys and as of now, he’s listed as questionable for Sunday’s game. If Carson is out, look for Carlos Hyde to fill in. Hyde is affordable on both DraftKings and FanDuel. I love the condense target share among the Seattle wide receivers. We know most of the time the ball is going to Tyler Lockett or DK Metcalf. This duo accounts for a little more than 50% of Wilson yardage and exactly 50% of his touchdowns. I feel like I’m beating a dead horse, but plant your flag on who you feel is in the better spot (or double stack) and move on.
Miami Dolphins The Dolphins are coming off a win against the Jaguars. On a side note, beards are better than mustaches. Ryan Fitzpatrick is as volatile a DFS play as they come. He does have the ability to put up the outlier big day, and those DFSers who are season remember that random 7 touchdown game from a few years ago. I feel the game script will dictate the Dolphins will have to throw to stay in the game so it’s the pass catchers that interest me more than Fitzpatrick. I’m looking to Devante Parker, Preston Williams, and Mike Gesicki. None of the three are exactly lighting the world on fire with target share or numbers but the Seattle pass defense ranks near the bottom of the league.

Los Angeles Chargers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers O/U 43.5

Los Angeles Chargers Though the Chargers have some fantasy viable players I’m not entirely sure they are the best option on the slate. With the lowest implied team total on the slate and going against a tough Buccaneer defense I most like won’t be looking to any of the Chargers skill players. If I was forced to play anyone, I’m going Keenan Allen. Again, I’m thinking game script will have the rookie quarterback Justin Herbert throwing the ball, and as last week shows his go-to-guy is looking like Allen.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Again, with the lowest implied game total on the slate and seven other games with totals over 50, I don’t feel this spot is necessarily the one I want to attack. If your inclined to do so, I’d go Tom Brady with Mike Evans. Chris Godwin was ruled out earlier today with a hamstring injury he suffered last week. One piece of advice I didn’t understand when I first heard it was, “Play good players.” It seemed so simple but week in and week out you see people play guys like Scotty Miller because a guy like Godwin is out. Don’t do that! I’ll relay the same advice I received – Play good players!

Baltimore Ravers @ Washington Football Team O/U 47

Baltimore Ravens I’m expecting Lamar Jackson to come out and go full scorched earth. He’s coming off a rough outing against the Chiefs on Monday night, and by rough, I mean rough. He threw for less than 100 yards and was sacked four times. The Washington defensive front is no joke but I’m not doubting Lamar this week. I’m not too keen on targeting the Ravens backfield as its essentially a four-headed monster (Ingram, Dobbins, Edward, and Lamar). Mark Andrews has been quiet after catching two touchdowns opening week. We can look back to week one and see Washington struggle against the Eagle’s tight ends. I don’t know if Andrews can replicate this success but it could be worth the exposure. I wouldn’t be opposed to stacking Lamar with one of his wide receivers – Boykins, Brown, or Snead.
Washington Football Team Pray for Dwayne Haskins. He’s going to have to throw but I don’t like the poor kid’s chances. However, I do like Terry McLaurin. He’s Haskins go-to-guy and I would expect to see him peppered with targets. In all honesty, I’m not going back to the Logan Thomas well or anywhere else on the Washington offense for that matter.

New York Giants @ Los Angeles Rams O/U 48

New York Giants This is far from a spot I want to invest in. Quarterback Daniel Jones has struggled this season throwing an interception in each of the first three games. The lack of a running threat now that Saquon Barkley is out for the year with a torn ACL puts the offense squarely on Jones’ shoulders. I don’t think he has the surrounding cast or talent to carry the team. I’m fading the three-headed backfield of Devonta Freeman, Wayne Gallman, and Dion Lewis. The anemic run game is averaging 3.2 yards per carry this season – hard pass. If you feel the need to run back a Rams stack you can look to one of the Giants pass catchers. My preference would be Darius Slayton as he leads the team in targets and a wider route tree than Golden Tate, who serves primarily in the slot. If the team ever featured Evan Ingram and intentionally fed him he would be of great interest.
Los Angeles Rams There’s a lot to like about this Rams offense. Jared Goff has a juicy matchup again a bottom tier pass defense that just gave up nearly 350 yards to a backup quarterback. Goff has thrown for multiple touchdowns in his last two outings and I can see that trend continuing this Sunday. Darrell Henderson has been a pleasant surprise to start the season as most expected rookie Cam Akers to take control of the backfield. Henderson’s workload has continually increased since week one culminating with a 21 touch outing last Sunday. As far as pass catchers go, I’m looking to the two main targets, Cooper Cupp and Robert Woods. As stated in my early week four preview, Cupp is looking explosive two years removed from his torn ACL. He’s responsible for 24.71% of the team’s target share. On the other side of the field and in the slot is Robert Woods. Woods represents a 22.4% target share, but what’s interesting is that he’s had multiple carries the last two weeks. I don’t know if this trend will continue but it’s nice to see McVay make a concerted effort to get him the ball.

Buffalo Bills @ Las Vegas Raiders O/U 52

Buffalo Bills Let me start by saying I don’t mean to pee in anyone’s cheerios. Yes, Allen has been playing like a man possessed, however, in two of three games he’s gone up against two of the worst teams in the like in the Dolphins and Jets. It was encouraging to see him put up numbers this past Sunday against the Rams but I’d like to see him continue his success deeper into the season. Again, like most of the quarterbacks, I like to ‘run’ in DFS, Allen gives you a nice little rushing floor. Oakland sports a middle of the pack DVOA pass defense. According to reports, it looks like John Brown missed practice with an injured calf on Wednesday. We’ll have to monitor his status for the remainder of the week. If John Brown is out, I want all the Stefon Diggs. We’ve seen Diggs and Allen mesh well through the first few weeks of the season and I would expect his 25% target share to increase if Brown is out. We will also have to keep an eye on Zack Moss’ status. He missed last week’s game with an ankle injury and Devin Singletary took full advantage of the opportunity. Singletary saw a season-high 19 touches and I would imagine that can be repeated if Moss is out this week.
Las Vegas Raiders I’m not sure if I’m looking to invest a whole lot in Captain Checkdown Derek Carr. I don’t believe he provides enough of a floor or ceiling in cash or GPPs to warrant locking him into our lineups. On the other hand, Josh Jacobs is someone...

Help fact-checking a list of well known Childfree people

I'm compiling a list of childfree people for a blog. I have found a few lists online (which have been helpful). But in some cases they were not up-to-date. A person may have had children since being added to their list (example: I had to remove George Clooney who appeared on a number of lists). Or there might be some people missing who should be on the list.
If you have a moment to scan the list and let me know of any other errors or omissions it would be appreciated.
It has been fun working on this list. A few people on it surprised me. Thanks again for any help.
\Edit for clarification: the term "childfree", in the sense of this list, will be in regards to people who never had a child from a live birth, fostered a child, adopted a child, or was a step-parent.*

Avatar: Pandora Rising - Release Notes for 0.6.0

Explore the floating mountains of Mo'ara with your Alliance and leave your mark on Pandora with explosive new Troops and Commanders! We also have some changes to Seasons, the Commander recovery system, base combat, and rewards for fair battles that we can't wait for your feedback on.

What's New Overview

Here’s a summary of what’s arriving over the course of this release:

New Feature - Mo'ara Raids

Mo’ara is a new region that Alliances can explore together. Fly among the floating mountains, searching the swirling fog of war for conquest and rewards. You’ll have to work together to overcome the Patrols and tough Boss encounters for the best loot. As a new feature, we’ll be looking to you for feedback to see how we can improve it!
For a more detailed overview CHECK OUT OUR PREVIOUS BLOG.

New Commander Recovery System

We’ve reworked how Commanders recover to solve the issue of many different consumables to manage, and the separation of partial damage and death. We feel this makes the experience more intuitive and streamlined.

Updates to Seasons

New Troops

NA’VI
Elder TitanAn ancient Titanothere lumbers through the battlefield, infested with aggressive Wolf Tick passengers that opportunistically seek out new prey. Once the Elder Titan is taken down, Wolf Ticks burst out of its massive carcass, viciously biting nearby enemies. Overrun your opponent's defenses by drawing enemy focus to a defensive Troop right before the Elder Titan dies.
Banshee RoostA floating island of unobtanium ripped loose from the surface now serves as a rookery for Banshees. They periodically join the battle from this moss-covered perch. As it can call in many Forest Banshees over its lifetime, the Banshee Roost can be an excellent source of aerial pressure in a pushing lane.
RDA
HexbotsThe RDA has repurposed a crew of three arc-welding Hexbots to disrupt enemy Troops on the battlefield. Hexbots use electrical attacks to slow enemy Movement and Attack Speed, and when critically injured, they self-destruct with a plasma burst that briefly stuns surrounding ground enemies. Use Hexbots against an enemy push on your defenses to stop them in their tracks.
FireflyA lightweight, flying vehicle equipped with a pressurized napalm fuel tank and cone-shaped frontal flamethrower. The Firefly's ability to shoot a quick burst of flame at multiple aerial targets makes it the go-to weapon against low health enemy Troops like Na'vi Banshees and Stingbats.

New Commanders

NA’VI
Atan (Hunter) - Sturmbeest Safeguard
RDA
Madaki (Scientist) - Dandetiger Safeguard
Onozuki (Soldier) - Defender

Enhancing Base Combat

There weren’t many battles happening at your bases. We’ve taken several steps to address this which will take some time to get used to. Rather than rare instances of someone’s Combat Protection dropping with a large stash, there will now be more targets and rewards in the world. Combat Protection will now be a rarer resource as well, so use them wisely. We’ll be watching how the below changes impact the battlefield and giving them time before adjusting further:

Black skaters, Black-owned businesses and stories to follow and support

I originally posted this to Rollerblading but a lot of this information can be useful for quad skaters as well, trying to share this with as many people as possible. If you have more Black-owned businesses you'd like to add, please comment below and I'll add them to this list! The original list is mostly inline skaters, but please recommend anyone to add, ESPECIALLY women and non-binary folk. Thank you!
Trying to find information about Black skaters on Google is plain difficult and sad, I’d say over 90% of results are listings for buying black skates, or stock images of Black people skating. It goes to show how little representation the sport offers Black culture, when Black culture and music is so deeply integrated into the sport.
Here's a list of Black skaters, Black-owned businesses and stories to follow and support:
Before the rest of the world knew who they were, the pioneers of rap, including Dr. Dre, Queen Latifa, and N.W.A., got their starts performing in rinks, Skateland, a well-known rink in Northridge, was the venue for a memorable N.W.A performance later depicted in the biopic Straight Outta Compton.

CHANGELOG 6/16 10:35p EST fixed formatting, added 1 section. 6/17 12:29a EST added 5 new sections. 6/17 1:23p EST added 7 new sections. 6/17 1:40p EST added 1 section. 6/19 9:17p EST added 5 sections. 6/19 9:45p EST added 1 section. 6/23 10:53p EST added 2 sections. 6/24 5:30p EST added 2 sections. 6/28 3:50a EST added 1 section. 6/26 8:20p EST added 3 sections. 7/3 7:55p EST added 1 section, updated another. 7/6 2:00p EST added 1 section.

"Sasquatch", "Wildmen", "Matlox", "Yeti" "Almas"; call them what you will; there are credible historical and contemporary reports and evidence, from around the world, that show mysterious Humanoid/Ape-like Mammals exist in the wilderness of the Earth's continents.

What follows is a massively abridged (by me) version of Chapter 10 of "Forbidden Archeology" by Michael Cremo and Richard L. Thompson. Reading it recently I found it enthralling, but I wished some of the things described were better illustrated (if at all!). So I spent some time searching online for the appropriate images. I then abridged and formatted the chapter for posting to Reddit, and inserted the pictures that I found into the text. I've included, at an appropriate part of the text, a link to more recent info relating to DNA discoveries ...
Living Ape-Men?
There are signs that humans may have coexisted with more apelike hominids throughout the Pleistocene. We suggest that humans and ape-man-like creatures continue to coexist. Over the past hundred or so years, researchers have accumulated substantial evidence that creatures resembling Neanderthals, Homo erectus, and the Australopithecines even now roam wilderness areas of the world.
Hard Evidence Is Hard To Find
In 1775, Carl Linnaeus, the founder of the modern system of biological classification, listed three existing human species: Homo sapiens, Homo troglodytes (cave man), and Homo ferus (wild man). Although Linnaeus knew the latter two species only from travellers’ reports and secondary sources, he included them in his Systema Naturae.
Professional scientists have (1) observed wild-men in natural surroundings, (2) observed live captured specimens, (3) observed dead specimens, and (4) collected physical evidence for wild-men, including hundreds of footprints. They have also interviewed non-scientist informants and investigated the vast amount of wildman lore contained in ancient literatures and traditions.
Many will say that all the wildman evidence mentioned above exists simply in reports, and that reports alone, even those given by scientists, are not sufficient to establish the existence of wild-men. However, in palaeoanthropology, as in many areas of science, evidence exists primarily in the form of reports.
During World War II almost the whole collection of Homo Erectus fossils was lost during the Japanese occupation of China. The Homo Erectus fossils now exist only in the form of old written reports, photographs, and casts. And no one doubts that the originals did in fact exist.
But what about reports by scientists who claim they saw and examined dead specimens of wildmen, the corpses of which were not preserved? Most scientists will grant no credibility at all to such reports. In one case the reports are believed, and in the other they are not. Why? We propose that reports about evidence conforming to the standard view of human evolution generally receive greater credibility than reports about nonconforming evidence. Thus deeply held beliefs, rather than purely objective standards, may become the determining factor in the acceptance and rejection of reports about controversial evidence.
Cryptozoology
...refers to the scientific investigation of species whose existence has been reported but not fully documented.
Is it really possible that there could be an unknown species of hominid on this planet? There remain vast unpopulated and little-travelled areas. In particular, the North-Western United States still has large regions of densely forested, mountainous terrain which, although mapped from the air, are rarely penetrated by humans on the ground. A surprising number of new species of animals are still being found each year—about 5,000 according to a conservative estimate. As might be suspected, the great majority of these, some 4,000, are insects.
Yet, The largest of the bears, the Kodiak bear, was unknown to science until 1899. The largest rhinoceros, Cotton’s white rhino, was discovered in 1900. The mountain gorilla, the largest member of the ape family, turned up in 1901. The largest lizard, the Komodo dragon, was first captured in 1912. In 1975, the largest known peccary, or wild hog, Catagonus wagneri, was discovered in Paraguay. This animal was previously known only by Pleistocene fossils. In 1976, a large and entirely new species of shark, 4.5 meters (almost 15 feet) long and weighing over 700 kilograms (over 1,500 pounds), was caught by a U.S. Navy ship in the ocean waters off Hawaii.
European Wild-men
Many art objects of the Greeks, Romans, Carthaginians, and Etruscans bear images of semi-human creatures resembling wild-men. During the Middle Ages, wild-men continued to be depicted in European art and architecture. A page from Queen Mary’s Psalter, composed in the fourteenth century, shows a very realistically depicted hairy wildman being attacked by a pack of dogs.
Wild-men were thought to live in caves and forests. They subsisted on berries and roots. They were not considered ordinary humans. They were said to be members of the animal kingdom.
Northwestern North America
In 1792, the Spanish botanist-naturalist José Mariano Moziño, in describing the Indians of Nootka Sound on Vancouver Island, Canada, stated:
“I do not know what to say about Matlox, inhabitant of the mountainous district, of whom all have an unbelievable terror. They imagine his body as very monstrous, all covered with stiff black bristles; a head similar to a human one, but with much greater, sharper and stronger fangs than those of the bear; extremely long arms; and toes and fingers armed with long curved claws. His shouts alone (they say) force those who hear them to the ground, and any unfortunate body he slaps is broken into a thousand pieces.”
Of the Spokane Indians of the Pacific Northwest, Elkanah Walker, a missionary who lived among them for 9 years, wrote in 1840:
“They believe in the existence of a race of giants which inhabit a certain mountain, off to the west of us. They inhabit its top. They hunt and do all their work in the night. They are men stealers. They come to people’s lodges in the night, when the people are asleep and take them and put them under their skins and take them to their place of abode without their even awakening. They say their track is about a foot and a half long. They frequently come in the night and steal their salmon from their nets and eat them raw. If the people are awake they always know when they are coming very near by the smell which is most intolerable”
Indians from the Columbia River region of the northwestern United States produced rock carvings that resembled the heads of apes. Anthropologist Grover Krantz showed photographs of the heads to a number of scientists and noted:
“Zoologists who did not know their source unanimously declared them to be representative of nonhuman, higher primates; those who knew the source insisted they must be something else!” Preconceptions seem to determine what scientists are prepared to see, and one thing most scientists are definitely not prepared to see is apelike creatures in the American Northwest.
On July 4, 1884, the Colonist, a newspaper published in Victoria, British Columbia, carried a story titled: “What is it? A strange creature captured above Yale. A British Columbian Gorilla.” Ned Austin, a railway engineer, spotted a human-like creature ahead of him on the tracks, blew the whistle, and stopped. The creature darted up the side of a hill, with several railway employees in pursuit. After capturing the animal, described as “half man and half beast”, the railway employees turned him over to Mr. George Tilbury. The Colonist reported: “‘Jacko,’ as the creature has been called by his capturers, is something of the gorilla type, standing about four feet seven inches in height and weighing 127 pounds. He has long, black, strong hair and resembles a human being with one exception, his entire body, excepting his hands (or paws) and feet is covered with glossy hair about one inch long. His forearm is much longer than a man’s forearm, and he possesses extraordinary strength”
Myra Shackley noted:
“The newspaper account of Jacko was subsequently confirmed by an old man, August Castle, who was a child in the town at the time. The fate of the captive is not known, although some said that he (accompanied by Mr. Tilbury) was shipped east by rail in a cage on the way to be exhibited in a sideshow, but died in transit”
Furthermore, there were additional reports of creatures like Jacko from the same region. Zoologist Ivan Sanderson said about Jacko in one of his collections of wildman evidence:
“one of his species had been reported from the same area by Mr. Alexander Caulfield Anderson, a well-known explorer and an executive of the Hudson’s Bay Company, who was doing a ‘survey’ of the newly opened territory and seeking a feasible trade route through it for his company. He reported just such hairy humanoids as having hurled rocks down upon him and his surveying party from more than one slope. That was in 1864.”
In 1967, in the Bluff Creek region of Northern California, Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin managed to shoot a short color film of a female Sasquatch.
They also made casts of her footprints. These prints, which were 14 inches long, were 5.5 inches wide at the ball and 4 inches wide at the heel
Several opinions have been expressed about the film. While some authorities have said it is an outright fake, others have said they think it provides good evidence in favor of the reality of the Sasquatch. Mixed opinions have also been put forward. A man could have sufficient height and suitable proportions to mimic the longitudinal dimensions of the Sasquatch. The shoulder breadth however would be difficult to achieve without giving an unnatural appearance to the arm swing and shoulder contours”
Anthropologist Myra Shackley of the University of Leicester observed that the majority view seems to be
“that the film could be a hoax, but if so an incredibly clever one.”
Dr. Jeff Meldrum compares the surface anatomy between the costumes in Beneath the Planet of the Apes and the Patterson-Gimlin film. He says there’s no comparison.
More Footprints
As far as Sasquatch footprints are concerned, independent witnesses have examined and reported hundreds of sets, and of these more than 100 have been preserved in photographs and casts.
Footprint comparison by Professor Meldrum
Napier stated:
“if any of them is real then as scientists we have a lot to explain. Among other things we shall have to re-write the story of human evolution. Critics, however, assert that all these footprints have been faked. Undoubtedly, some footprints have been faked, a fact the staunchest supporters of the Sasquatch will readily admit. But could every single one of them be a hoax?
Grover S. Krantz, an anthropologist at Washington State University, was initially skeptical of Sasquatch reports.In reconstructing the skeletal structure of the foot from a print, he noted that the ankle was positioned more forward than in a human foot. Taking into consideration the reported height and weight of an adult Sasquatch, Krantz, using his knowledge of physical anthropology, calculated just how far forward the ankle would have to be set. Returning to the prints, he found that the position of the ankle exactly matched his theoretical calculations.
“That’s when I decided the thing is real,”
said Krantz.
“There is no way a faker could have known how far forward to set that ankle. It took me a couple of months to work it out with the casts in hand, so you have to figure how much smarter a faker would’ve had to be”
Typically the prints are 14 to 18 inches long and 5 to 9 inches wide, giving a surface roughly 3 to 4 times larger than that of an average human foot. Hence the popular name Bigfoot. To make a Sasquatch footprint as deep as an average human footprint would require a weight 3 to 4 times greater than that of an average-sized man. In all cases, however, whether the prints are in snow, mud, dirt, or wet sand, the Sasquatch prints are much deeper than those made by a man walking right next to them in the same material. Thus a weight of more than 3 or 4 times that of a man is required to make the Sasquatch prints. A 200-pound man would have to be carrying at least 500 pounds to make a good print. There are reports of series of prints extending from three-quarters of a mile up to several miles, in deserted regions far away from the nearest roads. The stride length of a Sasquatch varies from 4 to 6 feet (the stride length of an average man is about 3 feet). Try walking a mile with at least 500 pounds on your back and taking strides 5 feet long.
In several cases, the Sasquatch footprints indicated the maker strode over large logs, which a human of normal size could not have gotten over without disturbing the fresh snow clearly visible on their tops. In some cases, the distance between the toes of the footprints varied from one print to the next in a single series of prints. This means that besides all the other problems facing a hoaxer, he would have had to incorporate moving parts into his artificial feet. Furthermore, in order to insure that some of his fake prints would be found, any hoaxer would probably have had to make more trails of footprints than were actually discovered—and that means a lot of work.
In conclusion, critics have failed to explain all the footprints as the work of hoaxers. It would seem, therefore, that the footprints argue strongly for the reality of the Sasquatch, as demonstrated by the following case.
On June 10, 1982, Paul Freeman, a U.S. Forest Service patrolman tracking elk in the Walla Walla district of Washington State, observed a hairy biped around 8 feet tall, standing about 60 yards from him. After 30 seconds, the large animal walked away. Krantz studied casts of the creature’s footprints and found dermal ridges, sweat pores, and other features in the proper places for large primate feet. Detailed skin impressions on the side walls of the prints indicated the presence of a flexible sole pad. Krantz solicited opinions from other scholars and fingerprint experts. Tatyana Gladkova, a specialist in dermatoglyphics from the USSR Institute of Anthropology, said:
“I see dermal ridges of the arch type distally directed. I see sweat pores. If it’s a fake, it’s a brilliant fake, on the level of counterfeiting, and by someone well versed in dermatoglyphics”
Douglas M. Monsoor, a master police fingerprint examiner from Lakewood, Colorado, stated:
“I see the presence of ridge structure in these casts, which, in my examination, appears consistent with that type of ridge structure you would find in a human. Under magnification, they evidence all the minute characteristics similar to human dermal ridges. They appear to be casts of impressions of a primate foot—of a creature different from any of which I am aware”
The majority of the Sasquatch reports come from the northwestern United States and British Columbia. However, there are also numerous reports from the eastern parts of the United States and Canada. For example there were, as of 1977, 11 reports from New York, more than 24 reports from Pennsylvania, 19 reports from Ohio, 18 from Michigan, 9 from Tennessee, more than 36 from New Jersey, 19 from Arkansas, 23 from Illinois, 30 from Texas, and 104 from Florida, 74 reports from Montana, 32 from Idaho, 176 from Oregon, 281 from Washington, 225 from British Columbia, and 343 from California.
“One is forced to conclude that a man-like life-form of gigantic proportions is living at the present time in the wild areas of the northwestern United States and British Columbia.”
Central And South America
In Buckskin Joe, Edward Jonathan Hoyt reported an encounter he had in 1898 in Honduras. A large, apelike creature, about 5 feet tall, crawled over the end of his bunk. Hoyt killed the animal, which resembled a human
From southern Mexico’s tropical forests come accounts of beings called the Sisimite. Wendell Skousen, a geologist, said the people of Cubulco in Baja Verapaz reported: “There live in the mountains very big, wild men, completely clothed in short, thick, brown, hairy fur, with no necks, small eyes, long arms and huge hands. They leave footprints twice the length of a man’s.” “it looked like a bear, but it wasn’t from the description that they gave—no conspicuous ears, no ‘snout’” Similar creatures are reported in Guatemala, where, it has been said, they kidnap women and children
From the eastern slopes of the Andes in Ecuador come reports of the Shiru, a small fur-covered hominidlike creature, about 4 to 5 feet tall (Sanderson 1961, p. 166). In Brazil, people tell of the large apelike Mapinguary, which leaves giant humanlike footprints and is said to kill cattle.
Yeti: Wildmen of The Himalayas
Myra Shackley observed that Yeti are found in Nepalese and Tibetan religious paintings depicting hierarchies of living beings.
“Here, bears, apes, and langurs are depicted separate from the wildman, suggesting there is no confusion (at least in the minds of the artists) between these forms.”
After reviewing the available reports, Ivan Sanderson compiled the following composite description of the Yeti:
“Somewhat larger than man-sized and much more sturdy, with short legs and long arms; clothed in long rather shaggy fur or hair, same length all over and not differentiated. Naked face and other parts jet black; bull-neck and small conical head with heavy browridges; fanged canine teeth; can drop hands to ground and stand on knuckles like gorilla. Heel very wide and foot almost square and very large, second toe longer and larger than first, and both these separated and semi-opposed to the remaining three which are very small and webbed.”
In November of 1951, Eric Shipton, while reconnoitering the approaches to Mt. Everest, found footprints on the Menlung glacier, near the border between Tibet and Nepal, at an elevation of 18,000 feet. Shipton followed the trail for a mile. Already well known as a mountaineer, Shipton could not easily be accused of publicity-seeking. A close-up photograph of one of the prints has proved convincing to many. In 1956, Professor E. S. Williams photographed some prints on the Biafo glacier in the Karakoram mountains. Napier, who thought it likely that they were the superimposed prints of the front and rear paws of a bear, said
“It is impossible to state categorically that Williams’s prints are those of a bear and not of a Yeti, but in the spirit of Bishop of Ockham it seems more reasonable to explain a phenomenon in terms of the known rather than the unknown.”
Of course, in avoiding the relatively straightforward explanation that a peculiar set of tracks in snow was made by an unknown animal, one is forced to come up with all kinds of speculative hypotheses about the superimposition of prints of various animals and humans, or the transformation of such prints by melting, in a manner not clearly understood. And this would also appear to be a violation of a key aspect of Ockham’s razor—namely, that the simplest of competing theories is preferable to the more complex.
Some Buddhist monasteries claim to have physical remains of the Yeti. One category of such relics is Yeti scalps, but the ones studied by Western scientists are thought to have been made from the skins of known animals. In 1960, Sir Edmund Hillary mounted an expedition to collect and evaluate evidence for the Yeti and sent a Yeti scalp from the Khumjung monastery to the West for testing. The results indicated that the scalp had been manufactured from the skin of the serow, a goatlike Himalayan antelope. But some disagreed with this analysis. Shackley said they
“pointed out that hairs from the scalp look distinctly monkey-like, and that it contains parasitic mites of a species different from that recovered from the serow.”
In 1978, Lord Hunt, who headed the British Mt. Everest expedition of 1953, saw Yeti tracks and heard the high-pitched cry the Yeti is said to make. Lord Hunt, described by Shackley as “a vigorous champion of the Yeti,” had come upon similar tracks in 1953. In both 1953 and 1978, the tracks were found at altitudes of 15,000 to 20,000 feet, too high for the either the black or red bears of the Himalayas.
It is interesting to note that science has recognized the existence of many fossil species on the strength of their footprints alone. The hypotheses and reconstructions of cryptozoology (regarding animals actually alive) are no more daring, questionable, fantastic, or illegitimate than those upon which paleontology has based its reconstructions of the fauna of past ages.
The Almas of Central Asia
There is another wildman, the Almas, which seems smaller and more human. A drawing of an Almas is found in a nineteenth-century Mongol compendium of medicines derived from various plants and animals. The text next to the picture reads:
“The wildman lives in the mountains, his origins close to that of the bear, his body resembles that of man, and he has enormous strength. His meat may be eaten to treat mental diseases and his gall cures jaundice” Reports of the Almas are concentrated in an area extending from Mongolia in the north, south through the Pamirs, and then westward into the Caucasus region. Similar reports come from Siberia and the far northeast parts of the Russian republic.
Early in the fifteenth century, Hans Schiltenberger wrote in his book of the Tien Shan mountain range in Mongolia: “The inhabitants say that beyond the mountains is the beginning of a wasteland which lies at the edge of the earth. No one can survive there because the desert is populated by so many snakes and tigers. In the mountains themselves live wild people, who have nothing in common with other human beings. A pelt covers the entire body of these creatures. Only the hands and face are free of hair. They run around in the hills like animals and eat foliage and grass and whatever else they can find. The lord of the territory made Egidi a present of a couple of forest people, a man and a woman. They had been caught in the wilderness, together with three untamed horses the size of asses and all sorts of other animals which are not found in German lands and which I cannot therefore put a name to”
Myra Shackley found Schiltenberger’s account especially credible for two reasons:
“First, Schiltenberger reports that he saw the creatures with his own eyes. Secondly, he refers to Przewalski horses, which were only rediscovered by Nicholai Przewalski in 1881. Przewalski himself saw ‘wildmen’ in Mongolia in 1871.”
Shackley noted:
“The book contains thousands of illustrations of various classes of animals, but not one single mythological animal such as are known from similar medieval European books. All the creatures are living and observable today.”
The Pamir mountains, lying in a remote region where the borders of Tadzhikistan, China, Kashmir, and Afghanistan meet, have been the scene of many Almas sightings. In 1925, Mikhail Stephanovitch Topilski, a major-general in the Soviet army, led his unit in an assault on an anti-Soviet guerilla force hiding in a cave in the Pamirs. One of the surviving guerillas said that while in the cave he and his comrades were attacked by several apelike creatures. The body of one such creature was found.
“It was covered with hair all over. But I knew there were no apes in the Pamirs. Also, the body itself looked very much like that of a man. We tried pulling the hair, to see if it was just a hide used for disguise, but found that it was the creature’s own natural hair. We turned the body over several times on its back and its front, and measured it. Our doctor made a long and thorough inspection of the body, and it was clear that it was not a human being. The body belonged to a male creature 165–170 cm [about 5½ feet] tall, elderly or even old, judging by the greyish colour of the hair in several places. The chest was covered with brownish hair and the belly with greyish hair. The hair was longer but sparser on the chest and close-cropped and thick on the belly. In general the hair was very thick, without any underfur. There was least hair on the buttocks, from which fact our doctor deduced that the creature sat like a human being. There was most hair on the hips. The knees were completely bare of hair and had callous growths on them. The whole foot including the sole was quite hairless and was covered by hard brown skin. The hair got thinner near the hand, and the palms had none at all but only callous skin.”
“The colour of the face was dark, and the creature had neither beard nor moustache. The temples were bald and the back of the head was covered by thick, matted hair. The dead creature lay with its eyes open and its teeth bared. The eyes were dark and the teeth were large and even and shaped like human teeth. The forehead was slanting and the eyebrows were very powerful. The protruding jawbones made the face resemble the Mongol type of face. The nose was flat, with a deeply sunk bridge. The ears were hairless and looked a little more pointed than a human being’s with a longer lobe. The lower jaw was very massive. The creature had a very powerful chest and well developed muscles. The arms were of normal length, the hands were slightly wider and the feet much wider and shorter than man’s.”
According to testimony from villagers of Tkhina, on the Mokvi River, a female Almas was captured there during the nineteenth century, in the forests of Mt. Zaadan. For three years, she was kept imprisoned, but then became domesticated and was allowed to live in a house. She was called Zana. (artists impression) “Her skin was a greyish-black colour, covered with reddish hair, longer on her head than elsewhere. She was capable of inarticulate cries but never developed a language. She had a large face with big cheek bones, muzzle-like prognathous jaw and large eyebrows, big white teeth and a ‘fierce expression.’” Eventually Zana, through sexual relations with a villager, had children. Some of Zana’s grandchildren were seen by Boris Porshnev in 1964. “The grandchildren, Chalikoua and Taia, had darkish skin of rather negroid appearance, with very prominent chewing muscles and extra strong jaws.”
Was 19th Century apewoman a yeti? 6ft 6in Russian serf who could outrun a horse was 'not human', according to DNA tests
In 1899, K. A. Satunin, a Russian zoologist, spotted a female Biaban-guli in the Talysh hills of the southern Caucasus. He stated that the creature had “fully human movements” (Shackley 1983, p. 109). The fact that Satunin was a well-known zoologist makes his report particularly significant.
Wildmen of China
“Chinese historical documents, and many city and town annals, contain abundant records of Wildman, which are given various names,”
states Zhou Guoxing of the Beijing Museum of Natural History. Two thousand years ago, the poet-statesman Qu Yuan made many references to Shangui (mountain ogres) in his verses. Li Yanshow, a historian who lived during the T’Ang Dynasty (a.d. 618–907), stated that the forests of Hubei province sheltered a band of wildmen. Wildmen also appeared in the writings of Li Shizhen, a pharmacologist of the Ming Dynasty (a.d. 1368–1644). In the fifty-first volume of his massive work on medical ingredients, he described several species of humanoid creatures, including one named Fei-fei.
Li wrote:
“‘Feifei,’ which are called ‘manbear,’ are also found in the mountainous areas in west Shu and Chu division, where people skin them and eat their palms. The You mountain of Sha county, Fujian province, sees the same ones, standing about one zhang (equal to 3.1 meters [ just over 10 feet]) in height and smiling to the people they come across, and are called ‘shandaren’ (men as big as mountains), ‘wildmen,’ or ‘shanxiao’”.
In the eighteenth century, the Chinese poet Yuan Mei made reference to strange creatures inhabiting the wild regions of Shanxi province, calling them “monkeylike, yet not monkeylike”
According to Zhou:
“Even today, in the area of Fang County, Hubei Province, there are still legends about ‘maoren’ (hairy men) or ‘wildmen.’ A local chronicle, about 200 years old, says that ‘the Fang mountain lying 40 li (2 li equals one kilometer [.62 mile]) south to the county town is precipitous and full of holes, where live many maoren, about one zhang high and hair-coated. They often come down to eat human beings and chickens and dogs, and seize those who fight with them.’A lantern on which there is an ornament of a ‘maoren’ figure was unearthed in this area during an archaeological excavation. It has been dated at 2,000 years”
In 1940, Wang Zelin, a graduate of the biology department of Northwestern University in Chicago, was able to directly see a wildman shortly after it was shot to death by hunters. Wang was driving from Baoji, in Shanxi Province, to Tianshui, in Gansu Province, when he heard gunfire ahead of him. He got out of the car to satisfy his curiosity and saw a corpse. It was a female creature, six and a half feet tall and covered with a coat of thick greyish-red hair about one and a quarter inches long. The hair on its face was shorter. The cheek bones were prominent, and the lips jutted out. The hair on the head was about one foot long. According to Wang, the creature looked like a reconstruction of the Chinese Homo erectus.
Ten years later, another scientist, Fun Jinquan, a geologist, saw some living wildmen. Zhou Guoxing stated: “With the help of local guides, he watched, at a safe distance, two local Wildmen in the mountain forest near Baoji County, Shanxi Province, in the spring of 1950. They were mother and son, the smaller one being 1.6 meters in height. Both looked human”
In 1961, workers building a road through the heavily forested Xishuang Banna region of Yunnan province in southernmost China reported killing a humanlike female primate. The creature was 1.2–1.3 meters (about 4 feet) tall and covered with hair. It walked upright, and according to the eyewitness reports, its hands, ears, and breasts were like those of a female human. The Chinese Academy of Sciences sent a team to investigate, but they were not able to obtain any physical evidence. Some suggested that the workers had come upon a gibbon. But Zhou Guoxing stated:
“The present author recently visited a newsman who took part in that investigation. He stated that the animal which had been killed was not a gibbon, but an unknown animal of human shape. It is worth noting that, over the past 2 years or so, some people in the western border areas of Yunnan Province say that the above-mentioned kind of Wildman still move about, and that another one has since been killed”
Consider the case of Pang Gensheng, a local commune leader, who was confronted in the forest by a wildman. Pang, who stood face to face with the creature, said;
“He was about seven feet tall, with shoulders wider than a man’s, a sloping forehead, deep-set eyes and a bulbous nose with slightly upturned nostrils. He had sunken cheeks, ears like a man’s but bigger, and round eyes, also bigger than a man’s. His jaw jutted out and he had protruding lips. His front teeth were as broad as a horse’s. His eyes were black. His hair was dark brown, more than a foot long and hung loosely over his shoulders. His whole face, except for the nose and ears, was covered with short hairs. His arms hung down to below his knees. He had big hands with fingers about six inches long and thumbs only slightly separated from the fingers. He didn’t have a tail and the hair on his body was short. He had thick thighs, shorter than the lower part of his leg. He walked upright with his legs apart. His feet were each about 12 inches long and half that broad—broader in front and narrow behind, with splayed toes”
Wildmen of Malaysia And Indonesia
In 1969, John McKinnon, who journeyed to Borneo to observe orangutans, came across some humanlike footprints. McKinnon asked his Malay boatman what made them.
“Without a moment’s hesitation he replied ‘Batutut,’” wrote McKinnon, “but when I asked him to describe the beast he said it was not an animal but a type of ghost. Batutut, he told me, is about four feet tall, walks upright like a man and has a long black mane. Like other spirits of the forest the creature is very shy of light and fire”
Later, in Malaya, McKinnon saw some casts of footprints even bigger than those he had seen in Borneo, but he recognized them as definitely having been made by the same kind of creature. The Malayans called it Orangpendek (short fellow). McKinnon stated:
“Again natives spoke of a creature with long hair, who walks upright like a man. Drawings and even photographs of similar footprints found in Sumatra are attributed to the Sedapa or Umang, a small, shy, long-haired, bipedal being living deep in the forest” (Green 1978, pp. 134 –135). According to Ivan Sanderson, these footprints differ from those of the anthropoid apes inhabiting the Indonesian forests (the gibbon, siamang, and orangutan). They are also distinct from those of the sun bear (Sanderson 1961, p. 219).
In a journal article about wildmen published in 1918, Westenek recorded a report from a Mr. Oostingh, who lived in Sumatra. Once while proceeding through the forest, he came upon a man sitting on a log and facing away from him. Oostingh stated:
“I saw that he had short hair, cut short, I thought; and I suddenly realised that his neck was oddly leathery and extremely filthy. ‘That chap’s got a very dirty and wrinkled neck!’ I said to myself. His body was as large as a medium-sized native’s and he had thick square shoulders, not sloping at all. . . . he seemed to be quite as tall as I (about 5 feet 9 inches). Then I saw that it was not a man.” “It was not an orang-utan,” declared Oostingh. “I had seen one of these large apes a short time before.”
What was the creature if not an orangutan? Oostingh could not say for sure:
“It was more like a monstrously large siamang, but a siamang has long hair, and there was no doubt that it had short hair”
Mainstream Science and Wildman Reports
Despite all the evidence we have presented, most recognized authorities in anthropology and zoology decline to discuss the existence of wildmen. If they mention wildmen at all, they rarely present the really strong evidence for their existence, focusing instead on the reports least likely to challenge their disbelief.
Hand and foot bones of wildmen, and even a head, have been collected. Competent persons report having examined bodies of wildmen. And there are also a number of accounts of capture. That none of this physical evidence has made its way into museums and other scientific institutions may be taken as a failure of the process for gathering and preserving evidence. The operation of what we could call a knowledge filter tends to keep evidence tinged with disrepute outside official channels.
However, some scientists with solid reputations, such as Krantz, Napier, Shackley, Porshnev, and others, have found in the available evidence enough reason to conclude that wildmen do in fact exist, or, at least, that the question of their existence is worthy of serious study.
Myra Shackley wrote to our researcher Steve Bernath on December 4, 1984:
“As you know, this whole question is highly topical, and there has been an awful lot of correspondence and publication flying around on the scene. Opinions vary, but I guess that the commonest would be that there is indeed sufficient evidence to suggest at least the possibility of the existence of various unclassified manlike creatures, but that in the present state of our knowledge it is impossible to comment on their significance in any more detail. The position is further complicated by misquotes, hoaxing, and lunatic fringe activities, but a surprising number of hardcore anthropologists seem to be of the opinion that the matter is very worthwhile investigating.”
