Renowned Bigfoot researcher Tom Biscardi and a team of experts have announced they will be undertaking the “definitive” expedition to search for the mysterious and elusive creature.
The creature has been seen so often over the years that it is referred to by 58 different names around the world including Sasquatch, Yeti, Wendigo, Skunk Ape, Yowie, the Ohio Grassman, and Monkey Man.
Another name for Bigfoot that is used in places like Indonesia and Southeast Asia is Orang Pendek.
“Reports of Bigfoot, or Orang Pendek as it’s known, in Thailand and other parts of southeast Asis are not a new phenomenon, but due to a variety of reasons, it is a neglected region for boots-on-the-ground searches,” Tom Biscardi said in a press release.
“In the U.S., looking for Bigfoot and other cryptids has become an industry. Searches are accessible for even a novice, there really are no barriers. This is not the case in Thailand where weather, terrain, wildlife, culture and politics all create limitations.
“Only a team like mine, with more than 50 years’ experience hunting Bigfoot around the world, could take on such a trek.”
Called “Bigfoot in Thailand: The Definitive Expedition,” Biscardi and his team will be recording every aspect of their search with highlights from the expedition being featured in an upcoming documentary.
According to a website that has been created for the expedition, “The first recorded reports of Bigfoot in Thailand date back to the 16th century, when residents in the remote jungles spoke of ‘live hairy men as tall as 3 meters.’ Since the 1920s, thousands of sightings have been logged and a dozen scientific expeditions have been carried out since the mid-1970s. In 2005 a group of journalists traveled to many parts of Taiwan and southeast Asia to search for ’10 foot tall giant man apes.’ All of this activity produced no tangible evidence.”
“I am confident that, along with the help and input of Thai government officials, academic leaders and locals experienced with stories, sightings and encounters, the expedition will be informative and successful in not only creating the definitive historical library of Bigfoot in Thailand, but will also produce clear evidence of the monster,” said Biscardi.
