Big Foot = Big fake.
Okay, that's kind of a let-down.
I mean, I was thinking "they got an old chimp from a collector, or from a zoo or a failing circus. Or maybe they got a bear. Yeah, a black bear."
But a 'possum?!?
Strange that my wife and I were just talking tonight about how amazing it is, that in this world of about 7 billion people, we still occasionally find new species. Sure, most of 'em are from under water. Or really, really small. But there are new species to be found, it seems. They just aren't 7 feet tall, wandering undetected through the shrinking wilderness in a state of 9.3 million people.
