Mid-America Bigfoot Org Gets Good Press

While others are focused on the exposed prank by a Tulsa paper, we would like to salute D.W. Lee, Mid-America Bigfoot Research Center's(MABRC)executive director. MABRC is where researcher's think outside of the box.

Its rare when a bigfooter can get any message across without it being spun tongue-in-cheek with wink-wink and a nudge-nudge.

Towards the end of the article D.W. gets some choice quotes.
Another authoritative voice confirmed Blackfox's conclusion.

"We heard about the Kenwood rumors and sent one of our investigators, who confirmed it was a hoax," said D.W. Lee, the Mid-America Bigfoot Research Center's executive director.

Lee said his investigator identified the cell-phone photograph as one from the Patterson-Gimlin footage taken in California. The audio recording is a recorded howl out of Ohio. Both the photograph and audio clip are downloaded from the Internet.

Lee said the organization gets about 10 telephone calls a month. They are evenly divided among legitimate, misidentifications and hoaxes, he said.

The organization is currently working 25 active investigations of Bigfoot sightings in Oklahoma, he said.

"When we do expose a hoax, it shows the credibility of our organization," Lee said.

Lee is quick not to discount the Bigfoot sightings in northeastern Oklahoma.

"About four weeks ago, there was a Bigfoot sighting witnessed by 12 people," Lee said.

Lee would only say the hairy creature was spotted in southern Adair County by one of his research groups on an overnight trip. He estimated the creature to be between 7 and 8 feet tall.

"He stepped out of water and stood behind a tree," Lee said. "We turned off the spotlight, and he disappeared through the river reeds."

We salute Mid-America Bigfoot Research Center and all the work they do.
