On May 19, 2008, a press release entitled “Official Statement – Demise of the American Bigfoot Society” was issued. Here it is:
It is with sadness in my heart that I announce the closing of the doors of the American Bigfoot Society.
Today, I received a communication from ABS Chairman Sean Forker [above] that the decision was made to cease operations of the organization effective immediately.
It is times like these that makes me often think why such an organization, with such dedicated individuals, fails.
The answer is simple, dedication to this field is often in conflict with our family lives, career paths and often as well with our own goals and mission purposes.
Diversification is a wonderful thing, but at times as well can be a hindrance upon the propagation of an organization. Focus and diversification together in of itself is an oxymoron.
All the individuals in the American Bigfoot Society have themselves firmly implanted in other organizations and all of them should do well in their particular ventures.
To them my hand is always outward in friendship and I wish them the greatest in their opportunities abroad.
Sincerely, Steve Kulls [in two photos below], Vice President, Evidence Analysis – The American Bigfoot Society
