KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – Malaysia plans to send two teams of scientists to scour its southern rainforests and track down a huge ape said to have been spotted there, a government official said Friday.
“Bigfoot” fever has dominated Malaysian newspaper headlines for several weeks now, with several dramatic sightings of a hairy, gorilla-like creature reported in the thick forest in the southern state of Johor.
One local man said he saw a 10-foot (three meter) tall ape standing on two legs beside a river, according to one report.
“Yes, the state government has decided to send teams of scientists to try and track it,” said a state official who declined to be named. But he gave no further details.
