Cryptozoologist Karl Shuker looks back at a case from 1998 in which he received information from a University Professor on a possible stuffed thunderbird being kept in the town of Spanish, Ontario.

"Karl Shuker: In 1998, I received the following fascinating information of possible relevance to North America's ongoing thunderbird or 'big bird' mystery."

How many people does a thunderbird have to eat before he's stuffed? ...no wonder he couldn't just fly away...

Why write an article then go see if the rumor is true? What a tosser.

Maybe because writing an article can pay the bills, sometimes, but going looking for a rumored stuffed bird has a high probability of being a waste of time. It is a lot easier to pass on stories and speculate, right? It is what most of us do.

How do you hide that thing?! I wish it were true, but I think it is fake.

My dad is from the Serpent River indian rez, Cutler is the name of the "town" it's fairly close to Spanish. He's never told me anything of it. I'm just surprised to see that name on this website, kinda cool.

I'm from Manitoulin, also near there. I had to do a double take to make sure it said Spanish, ONTARIO. It is kind of cool seeing our corner of the north acknowledged, even though it is probably over nothing. We had a silly story going around here a few years ago. There was a rumour that Tom Selleck had a cottage on the island. Not true, was just a guy with a moustash and a Hawaiian shirt Although that would be quite awesome, too
