The study of folkloric creatures is considered by academics as pseudoscience because of the odd research and sources used in the study of this field.  But, should it?

Do creatures such as Big Foot or The Jersey Devil really exist?  Do the thousands of witnesses who describe seeing these unique creatures all succumb to mass delusion?

During this lecture we will examine the evidence for possible existence of these creatures in nature either at the present time or in the past.  Looking at physical evidence and documented evidence, particular focus will be shown to crypto-creatures alleged to be found in Connecticut and surrounding New England, we will examine the evidence and try to answer the question: do these creatures really exist?

Presented by Michael Panicello from CT’s Mutual UFO Network (MUFON). Michael Panicello has been the State Director of Connecticut MUFON since 2013.   Before becoming the state director Michael was a Connecticut MUFON State Section Director and a member of CAG (Case Assistance Group) International.  He is a field investigator and a member of MUFON’S STAR (Strike Team Area Research) Team.   As a member of CAG International and a field investigator, Michael has investigated over 200 cases to date.    Over the course of the eight years, Michael has been interviewed on the UFO phenomena in numerous podcasts, radio programs, and TV shows.     He also runs a Bigfoot Research Group and is involved in various ham radio activities.
