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 So even if they find no apes, perhaps they will do some good and find ...

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.

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?

It should be called "Extremely Pointless Expeditions." 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/
