trekkers report fresh footprints of 'Bigfoot'
Deutsche Presse Agentur
1995 - KUALA LUMPUR Malaysia - As
he hunt for a massive hairy creature called "Bigfoot" entered
its sixth day Thursday, Malaysian trekkers stumbled upon fresh footprints
indicating they were close to its hide-out, investigators said. Army and
police units, wildlife experts and jungle tribes joined the search
dubbed "Operasi Kaki Besar" in Malay, or "Operation Bigfoot."
Tribesmen burned twigs
and dried leaves, banged tin cans and gongs, performed ritual dances and
kept a 24-hour vigil with spears in an attempt to drive away the creature,
which they said had been sent to Malaysia by evil forces.
According to the INFO
Journal Fall 1969 (vol. 2, no. 1), a "giant" was seen in Malaysia
that was over 17 feet tall in 1966.
