The Centre for Fortean Zoology has stopped reporting on the orang pendek expedition altogether. No news of the results of the DNA tests have been released. Why?
one possible explanation that the expedition doesn’t seem to have considered is that what they saw was an orang… utan or another kind of ape, like a siamang. Both are quite capable of walking away on two legs.
Earlier this month, an expedition from the United Kingdom left for the island of Sumatra. All they had to do was take a simple series of flights, and take some ground transportation to their final destination and yet, they disappeared. The expedition’s headquarters back in
Fortean John Downes reported, “I have not heard a dickybird from them since they left, but one has to assume that everything is OK.”
Scientific analysis of the remains of what is known as Haast’s eagle show that it would have been easily capable of attacking, killing and carrying off human children.
Tracking the Center for Fortean Zoology is like watching children pretend to be spies – completely implausible, but rather fun.
