And yet still no clear photos of Bigfoot.  Perhaps Matt Moneymaker should talk to the folks at the World Wildlife Fund.

Saola sighting in Vietnam raises hopes for rare mammal's recovery

Long-horned ox photographed in forest in central Vietnam, 15 years after last sighting of threatened species in wild

WASHINGTON, Nov 12 (Reuters) - The critically endangered saola, an antelope-like creature native to Southeast Asia, has been photographed in Vietnam, the first sighting in 15 years, conservationists said on Tuesday.

Known for its two parallel horns that can grow to 50 inches (1.27 meters) in length, the saola is so rare that simply seeing a picture of one gives hope to those who want to preserve the species, said Van Ngoc Thinh of World Wildlife Fund.

Let's hope this doesn't become the "last known footage"...

I can make out a squatch in that image...  ;)

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

Guess you can't read BuzzLightYear, don't worry, you will eventually learn. They call it the 'Asian Unicorn' because of it's rarity, not because it has one horn.

What if here in the "WEST"  a rarity, in it's essence' is discovered and as the competitive spirit is aroused, the quest for the naming rights begins! It's not even a real unicorn, for GOD's sake!
