A team is soon to embark on an expedition to seek India's answer to Bigfoot, the Mande-burung.

The group is comprised of members from the Center for Fortean Zoology and will be lead by Adam Davies, they will leave on October 31st in the hope of finding evidence of the creature in the Garo Hills of Northern India.

"On October 31 – appropriately Halloween, of course - a team from the British-based Center for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) will be embarking upon a truly ambitious expedition to the Garo Hills of Northern India in search of legendary, hairy, man-like beasts know as the Mande-burung."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meghalaya The locals are considered "tribesmen" but there are over two million of them, in a state of about 8700 Sq miles, or similar in size to New Jersey. Oh dear, that is quite a lot haha.

I was just joking around that the UK should have their own version of bigfoot by now. Good luck with the trail cams though. Thanks, I need it. I've decided trail cams aren't up to the job. Spycams are my next venture (when I have the money that is)

I can't find an original thread dealing with this so I will start a new one. The CFZ sends out members to do intensive on site investigations on creatures it thinks are likely every couple years. This year they are going to India to look for the mande burung, which some people say is like a Bigfoot, and others say is some kind of ground dwelling ape. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mande_Burung They arrived in India and have begun asking questions: http://cfzindia2010.blogspot.com/2010/11/news-from-indian-expedition.html As always seems to be the case, the team go in search of one unknown animal ...

Merged. I guess I did not look back far enough to find this thread. I did not think it was all the way back 3 weeks ago.

The UK for one. We only have littlefolk and werewolves. Oh, and cattle sucking flying orbs with wings. And the Devil's Footprints...

This is just a publicity tour for the book that the guy wrote.

This is just a publicity tour for the book that the guy wrote. But, there are actual people on the ground, doing real science. I'm not sure what book you are talking about. The bigfoot book on the CFZ homepage?

I'm not sure what book you are talking about. The bigfoot book on the CFZ homepage? The 5-man team will be led by Adam Davies – the author of the monster-hunting-themed book, Extreme Expeditions It should be called "Extremely Pointless Expeditions." But, there are actual people on the ground, doing real science. I'll assume that is sarcasm.

I'll assume that is sarcasm. Is this going to be a, "Only a Doctorate level Scientist can conduct The Holy Science", arguements? Setting up camera traps, talking to the locals, picking up poop and hair and whatnot. Isn't that science? What they do with the data might be total baloney hogwash, but collecting data is the foundation of science.

There are some updates from the India Expedition. However, they don't amount to much. Pics and videos of people in the jungle. Stories. But, no new animals and no mysterious jungle ape. http://www.cfz.org.uk/
