First let me clarify what that underwater photo shows. It is an image captured from a Shell oil drilling film shot in either 1963 or 1966 depending on the source. The locations where it was shot was either off Santa Barbara, CA or off the Oregon coast. They dubbed the creature Marvin the monster for no plausible reason. That photo was in Ivan T. Sanderson’s repository at SITU. I came across it recently and it just so happened that Global came calling and I showed it to them. As far as I know those are the only stills that exist and I have no idea where the film is. Ask Shell.
Now regarding the Alaskan Cadborosaurus footage ….. Craig has been a gentleman and spoken on my behalf for a few days. I have a life outside cryptozoology so am currently very busy. I will respond to the debacle of the Alaskan Monster Hunt program in due course. They have all the other footage I spoke of, so why don’t the naysayers here just go and ask them? I’m not hiding anything. It’s not my footage, I don’t have it. They do. Ask them.
I am mad as hell that some readers on this site are patently falsely accusing me of hiding something. That is ludicrous. Making false claims is not part of my personality and I informed the readership of what I saw – nothing more, nothing less – so take it or leave it, but don’t impugn my name with nonsense. Have you done your due diligence by asking Discovery about the footage yourself? Obviously not as you would have known the answer. Don’t come on this forum and hide behind cute little nicknames and impugn people. That is cowardice.
By the way I am not a staff writer, don’t get paid for anything I write for Cryptomundo, but do it for the good of cryptozoological researchers who deserve to know what is going on. I am here because I want to share. I shared honestly here with you, but am now ready to pack it in after the response I got from those who point fingers when they don’t have all the facts.
There will be more on this shortly. Suffice it to say all requests to see the footage should be directed to Discovery.
