polar pals


so the bigfoot in the freezer turned out to be not bigfoot (dna said human and...possum?!), the montauk monster is still viable, but there are a lot of things about that that sound hinky, and the dewitt county chupacabra is SOMETHING--some kind of devil dog...the dewitt devil dog?...but it's no chupacabra by the definition i go by. is it a summer of hoaxes? i hope not. hoaxes don't help the cryptozoological cause one bit.
plus they're stupid.

the bigfoot story--which was featured as a press conference on cnn--just proved how poorly prepared and unprofessional tom biscardi and his "searching for bigfoot, inc." is. this claim should have been better documented and researched before the media was let in--and why not wait a day and have the dna results AT the press conference?! what a black eye for biscardi and ALL of us who believe in the possibility of sasquatch/bigfoot/yeti.

that the carcass of the montauk monster was allowed to be carted off and no one knows where it anyone doing some investigating on that? i understand that the police probably don't have time to follow this up, but somebody...?

and shouldn't the deputy in dewitt county--and those around him--be held responsible for actually knowing a little something about chupacabras before calling their dog one...?!

here's my chupacabra.

okay, so maybe i sound a little bitter. (but only in a "having fun with it " way.)


so, from what i've heard, the polar bear is supposedly one of the most vicious creatures on the planet. reports have them traveling miles out of their way just to kill something. they, like grizzlies--like any other living thing for that matter--become extremely violent when they believe their young are in danger. what we hear of polar bears interacting with any other animal is usually not good news.

so, of course, the guy who owned these sled dogs was thinking about where he was gonna get a new set of sled dogs when this polar bear wandered into his camp. he was also wondering if the polar bear was gonna stop when it was done tearing them to pieces...

apparently, the bear returned to the camp several nights in a row to romp and play with the dogs.
ya never know...

I'm calling this one the White Hat Chupacabra, perhaps the most horrific looking of all the Chupacabra breeds. ; )

As for those polar bear pictures, I love, love, love 'em.

Ketchup ice cream you say, bet the sold a lot of that . . . not.

The dogs and bear were playing. That's awesome. But, like all rough-housing like that, it's all fun and games until someone gets a 5 inch fang in their neck.

Love those Polar Bear shots.
Is that right before the dogs and the bear shared a coke?
OK, I just love those animated polar bear coke commercials around Christmas.

I love the polar bear pics.. Animals can sure surprise us! Reminds me of Otis & Mzee, the baby hippo & 100+ year old tortoise that bonded after the 2004/2005?? tsunami.. too bad we humans can't learn to see beyond our differences .. *sigh*

and that pick of Jake & the Chupacabra! yikes!! scary stuff, scary stuff. ;-)
