Since time immemorial there has been speculation surrounding the existence of "wild men" in certain isolated of the Pyrenees where access is difficult. This likelihood has regained currency following the information supplied by recent expeditions made in to the region of Bielsa, Huesca (Spain).
It is the best headline of the year and came, as you might have guessed, from the boy Freeman.
On this day in 1997 the actor Robert Mitchum died. Mitchum played Raymond Chandler's genre-defining private eye Philip Marlowe in two 1970s films: Murder My Sweet and The Big Sleep. These were, of course, remakes and not as famous as the original versions but unhindered by the Hays Code were truer to the source material. Mitchum also stared in Scrooged, a modern (or it was at the time) take on A Christmas Carol staring Bill Murray.

You know that feeling you get when you suspect the trailer might be better than the actual movie... well, you will after watching this:
Sadly, today marks the end of the trail cam funding campaign for the expedition to Sumatra.
Many thanks to those who have so far donated; your contributions are very welcome and much appreciated. If you haven’t yet donated and you want to there is still a bit of time left; just about 11 hours so you will have to be quick.
Just to recap, to sponsor a trail cam will cost £100. If that seems a little steep why not get a group together? A group of five will pay just £20 each. Sponsors will get an update on any pictures and when something exciting is spotted your name will go up in lights alongside the photo.
Don’t despair: if you miss out on Trevor, he has plenty of friends who also need help in breaking free.
Your sponsorship will pay for the release and upkeep of Trevor and kin, but sadly you will have no rights to take him home.
Now doesn’t that sound like a good deal? Armchair cryptozoology at its best. All the fun of an expedition without being bitten by scary tropical insects.
If you like the sound of this then please get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
