Check out the intriguing photos of a possible bigfoot over at the TBRC website.
Some fringe types, and skeptics, think bagging a sasquatch will end the debate once and for all. Fortunately Loren Coleman and company are Taking A Stand Against Killing Bigfoot. Loren has stepped down from the Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy, along with John Kirk, giving his reasoning behind the decision. www.Anomalist.com
It is rather strange to be a member of the Board of Advisors of the Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy (TBRC), and not be asked for my opinion, insights, or thoughts on trying to kill an unknown species in the field. I now see that the TBRC came up with a policy without letting me know.
As of today, I am resigning from the Board of Advisors of the TBRC. I understand that earlier today, John Kirk also resigned. John’s short statement related that he quit due to the following reason:They have adopted a pro-kill policy and I am against this….I cannot condone this kind of thing being done in the name of science.
I find it unfortunate that the members of the Board of Directors of the TBRC are out in the woods, seemingly and randomly, shooting at furry animate objects they feel they should kill to prove the existence of Bigfoot. Besides the unknown legal implications of such behavior (What if the species is found to be Homo? What if it is a human in a hairy suit?), I have been an open advocate of the live capture (telebiology), and non-killing of hairy unknown hominoids for decades.
There is no reason for me to be a figurehead member of a group of advisors who are not being asked for advice. I must resign from this group, immediately.
John Kirk resigned, and brought to my attention the group’s active pro-kill policy, as noted in The Echo Incident and Operation Endurance.
