Apparently Biscardi is running out of newspaper accounts of Bigfoot sightings to follow up on. Now he’s on the trail of the Yardley Yeti.
From the September 26 issue of the Bucks County Courier Times.
Bigfoot hunter Tom Biscardi is on the phone from California.
“What’s the story out there with the Yardley Yeti? Whaddya got?” he asked.
I told him I have been swamped by reports from people in Lower Bucks County (but mostly in the Yardley/Lower Makefield area) who have seen a strange dog-like creature.
“From what I can tell,” I said, “it could be a feral dog, a fox with mange or a mutant chipmunk.”
Biscardi chuckled lightly.
“Chipmunk,” he said wryly.
“Did you know,” he asked, “that you made all the Bigfoot alerts? Your story has hit nationally and internationally.”
The Yardley Yeti — an “international” hit? I asked.
Yes, among Bigfoot enthusiasts, he said.
Biscardi has spent 33 years researching and hunting Bigfoot, the alleged monster-like creature that stalks thick woodlands from Oregon to Pennsylvania. Biscardi has been doing it full time for two years. He has a Web site dedicated to his work. (Searchingforbigfoot.com.)
He called me for clarification on the creature. “Yeti” is usually a name associated with Bigfoot. Since Bigfoots (Bigfeet?) are in their annual north-to-south migrating season, he wondered if a wandering Bigfoot is the source of alarm.
(Apparently Tom hasn’t seen the photos of the Yardley Yeti here on Cryptomundo.)
“I know there is a migration path out there, and they could be going through your town,” he said.
I don’t think this thing is Bigfoot, I said. It’s more like Little Foot, or little feet.
“OK, well, I’m talking about hominids; things that walk on two feet,” he said.
This is definitely a four-footed animal, I told him. Probably a fox flushed from its habitat.
Again, he chuckled.
“From the descriptions you’ve given me, I think you have to ask: Can all these people seeing this thing be nuts? Can they all be hallucinating? Can they all think this thing is a chipmunk gone berserk?” he asked.
I chuckled lightly.
“I’m not going to try to convince you,” he said. “I read your [previous columns] and I’m sure you’re going to get more calls.”
