You may recall that the following footage was reluctantly mentioned here in September 2007.
It was claimed to be an “old 1924 video of supposed Pterosaur in PNG.”
Now, the Dinosaurs and Origins weblog is saying this is a fake that was created by a skeptic to discredit a researcher.
It looked as if David Woetzel (Cryptozoologist and member of ICR) had posted it. However, this video is a fraud and the real David Woetzel had nothing to do with it. It may be hard to believe that a skeptic stooped this low attempting to discredit the research of a living pterosaur investigator.Dinosaurs and Origins blog
Well, it was a rather obvious hoax, but if it was produced to undermine someone’s actual research, that’s hard to hear.
No specific “skeptic” was named.
