Thomas Parker, Baltimore has left a new comment on your post "Another Newspaper Article '62 Animal":
It has become very apparent that the forest service has been hoodwinking the public for decades about the truth on this matter.
According to head supervisor of USFS in Oregon in 1971 a gorilla was found dead in southern Oregon in the early sixties.
This statement was a flat out lie because he knew as did others at that time of the discovery of the remains it certainly was not any species of gorilla or primate known to date.
The estimated time of death was around 10/12/62 and even with severe degradation of the body the animal still topped the scales at 648lbs. and 7.3 in total length.
The autopsy showed the animal had sustained massive damage by crushing weight. Death was thought to be instantaneous.
With no DNA in thouse years it was only possible to type match in which no BT was determined.
It was checked for human and known animal type and nothing was ever matched.
Though it been many years since I last checked the remains were sent to Smithsonian Institute for later research.
The skeletal remains were positively there in 1997.
After 2001 the feds removed thousands of files or skeletal remains of anything there prior to 2000.
Thank you for the great comment. May I ask you how you know this about the bones being in the Smithsonian? Would love to hear more about this information. Please feel free to comment more. ... LNP
