Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.

Before you get your hopes up, please be warned that this is all hearsay for now.
Also, thanks elhombre for the news tip.

Bigfoot Evidence posted a news article titled “Quantra Team may have captured a Bigfoot specimen“. In the post, BE learns from an ex Quantra Team member, Ed Smith, that the original Quantra research team may have captured a Bigfoot. Smith is part of the Mid-America Bigfoot Research Center Forums where Smith posted the following:


 Source: Bigfoot Evidence

Understand that I am no longer a member of the Orig-6 in its new form. All of my access to the databases and communication nexus were removed. I thought.

Today, I received a text from the “Flash List” routing server. The text is as follows:


December 27, 2012 10:09 AM
From: CINC – 6

As of 0906 27 DEC 2012, “Daisy” is in the box.


I believe this message is factually correct because when we referred BF while under observation we used the term “target”.the designation was to change to “daisy” once captured.

This was never published or posted.

“CINC” is capture control and “6” is the chief or lead. No one else would have known this.

Plus the routing and IP information matches.

I believe that Quantra has a live specimen.

If this is correct then I congratulate them on a job well done.

Ed Smith

According to Smith, the Original 6 sent out a memo stating that “Daisy was in the box.” Which we learn is code for the capture of Bigfoot. Smith found it bizarre that he’d get a news flash from them since he no longer belonged to the team but from his examination of the source, this looks legit.

Today, the story develops even further. Smith is claiming that Daisy has been transported to another location for closer examination. Again, Bigfoot Evidence has the latest:

So here is what I know: “Daisy” has been moved to a examination area about 12 miles from the capture site at 3:17 this morning after being properly sedated. The capture site and examination area are on private property leased and or owned in order to conduct research and operations of this type. This was confirmed by a source in the Quantra Group.

Here is what I don’t know: The weight height hair color gender or location of capture. Or the health of the specimen.
Nor the actions leading up to the capture of the specimen.

Here is what I’m speculating: the examination team is continuing to assemble, examination should take 72 hours.

If they go by the plan then a decision about release or storage in a repository will be made with in 48 hours after the examination is completed.

If release is chosen then a press release should be forth coming after the examination is competed, if the specimen is sent to the repository then a press and information release would happen with in 30 to 90 days thats by the operations plan.

Read the rest of Ed Smith’s letter.

Again, I’d like to state that this is all hearsay until an official press release hits the wires in the next few days. These types of news reports are nothing new. The Bigfoot community is full of hoaxers and those who profit by over-sensationalizing¬† the hoaxes. That being said, I’ll be glued to the screen and will post updates when I get them.


  • Well, If I were a suspicious sort of person I would say this reads like the Quantra group is looking for attention and setting up Mr. Smith to take the fall when it proves out to be false.

    Much as i would love to believe otherwise I can see no reason for the delays in release of information. No information on who is examining the specimen, or their qualifications. If Smith was part of the team it seems likely he would have some idea of who is involved; Veterinarian? Zoologist? Anthropologist? Aliens?

    I will however follow this story as closely as possible as it only adds to the plot twists of the soap opera that Bigfoot has become these days, between Smeja, Ketchum, Dyer, and Burtsev.

    Now this.

    Who’s next?

  • ghosttheory

    Wait until you read the latest update from Tim Fasano.

    I’m just gonna put my head down and sleep for the rest of the day.

  • Well I guess that answers my question of “who’s next.”

    Only one question left: When are Moneymaker and Biscardi going to crawl out of their dank holes mumbling about “the precious”?

    Although here we have the makings of a reality show:

    “Finding Who Is Finding Bigfoot”
