Johor ‘Bigfoot’ caught?

Conflicting stories always cause confusion, wasting valuable time and money. So when two newspapers report different stories about the possible capture of the Johor Bigfoot, you have to wonder, which is telling the truth?

Surly one is right? Probably the one saying it hasn’t be caught, but the world of Cryptozoology seem to be holding its breath, hoping the other is right!

Cryptomundo picks up on the conflicting stories, but it seems that the state Environment and Tourism Committee chairman Freddie Long has said the following “We are not sure if the department’s officers had caught a baby Bigfoot. I only knew about it from newspapers today,”.

As a result, what appears to be a rushed law has been released stating: NO injury of any kind – including shooting – should be inflicted on Bigfoot (if it exists), which the Johor Government has classified as a totally-protected species. The creature also cannot be brought out of the State should it be caught without the permission from the relevant State authorities.

Interesting, but has one been shot? Time will tell I guess, but don’t hold your breath too long, it could prove fatal!
