Will the above “mummy” displace efforts to seriously study the “Johor Bigfoot”?
The cast is the one that Joshua Gates, the host of the Sci-Fi Channel’s Destination: Truth, and his producer Neil Mandt were filming in Johor, last February. Their reality program does not seem to be on the fall schedule, however.
Syed Abdullah (left) and Dr. Kenny Fong with the Singapore-based group, SPI, are shown above with the cast.
The importance of this cast to the Seekers has waded. That Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia-based group had originally expressed serious interest in researching the hairy hominoid but they are now reportedly selling their rather famed footprint cast prize. The reason: The Seekers wish to fund their analysis of their three “mummies.” It might already be gone.
Even though I think these mummies (one pictured at the top) routinely are taxidermy-created art objects, perhaps Cryptomundo readers have more insights about these specific “mummies.”
Frankly, I’d keep the Johor “Bigfoot” cast. If the Seekers would like to contact me about it being placed safely in a cryptozoological museum, I hope they do. I suggest this versus this cast going into the increasing black market of international cryptozoological items – such as the Pangboche Yeti hand that was stolen from Nepal in the 1990s and has completely disappeared.
