Little did most folks know what was in the UHaul truck moving along Congress Street in downtown Portland.
Bigfoot, the Civil War Pterodactyl, the FeeJee Mermaid, the coelacanth, and other residents of the International Cryptozoology Museum have been moved from Mass Ave to Congress Street.
Movers Jeff Meuse, Andy Cash, Eric Russell, Jeff Whitehouse, and Sean Casey, with assistance by Jessica Meuse, carried the day, as well as Bigfoot.
Look for New England media coverage…
Tuesday October 13, 2009 on WCSH – NBC – Channel 6 on the 6:00 pm report;
Tuesday or Wednesday, October 13 or 14, 2009 on NECN out of Boston; and
