                                                If you go down to the woods today - at least with Jonathan Downes - then you're sure for a big surprise. On their latest monster-hunting adventure, the director of Exeter's Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) has spotted something lurking in Northumbria's Bolam Lake forest.

And despite it's soft-to-touch and cuddly appearance, Jonathan is confident it's not a teddy bear on his way to a picnic.

                                                Call me cynical but the director of Exeter's Centre for Fortean Zoology spots a bigfoot?

Riiiiiight.

                                                In my opinion this has to be wrong, there's no way a 10 foot tall bipedal ape could be roaming around the UK, it's far too cold for a large primate, and there just isn't enough habitat for something like that in Britain.

The fact that it was dark at the time, doesn't help their case.  wink.gif

I don't know what it is they saw, but I'm quite certain that it wasn't a Bigfoot.

                                                It was probaly a Hoaxer that knew that they were in the area, just wait a few days, and the hoaxer will come forword and make these eyewitnesses look like a bunch of Lunies. Hoaxer do this all the time if they find out a Crypto researcher is in the area, they pull stuff like this I ve had it happen twice to me.
The only reason I found out is because ever time I go out looking I carry protection and this worrys the hoaxer to no end tell they tell you it was a hoax.

                                                probably just a tramp legging it through the woods having been diurbed by the car, mixed with it being night-time and all

                                                The attached link is to my local evening papers website. It show all the recent articles on the Bolam Lake Yeti.

Bolam Lake is only about  1 hours drive from my home and my personnel belief is that the first people to see it, the local anglers may have had to much of the local Newcastle Broon Ale

                                                A couple more bottles of the stuff and we would have had reports of a monster in the lake, or alien abduction. (but officer I cannot remember where I've been for the last 24 hours)
