UPDATE: THIS REPORT IS A HOAX

 

 

Originally posted here as a real news article, it is a fake news article presented like it's real published Sept. 14, 2014 about the killing of an Orang Pendek and the Indonesian government confiscating the body from the villagers.  The publisher of this and other fake articles by them is in the hoax section of this forum under the topic "World News Daily Report."

Indonesia: Ape Man Creature Shot Down In Borneo Jungle

Jalan Purat | Peoples of the mountainous area of Kinabalu, Borneo, have reported the killing by shotgun wound of an ape man-like creature that has been terrorizing local villagers these past weeks.

 

The ape man-like creature that is called by locals Orang Pendek, or short person in Indonesian, has allegedly attacked three villagers and tried to kidnap a three week old baby in the past weeks, reports the Kalimantan Press.

Dayak tribe leader Bakumai claims the beast allegedly tried to carry away a newborn baby before being shot and fleeing into the jungle

 

The beast’s cadavre was discovered later on by the villagers and buried into the ground. A large rock was also pushed on top of the grave by twenty villagers or more, claims a local resident “so that the beast wouldn’t come back to haunt the village”.

Villagers have also stated that the Indonesian Army latter came to the burial site and confiscated the body of the deceased creature and threatened the villagers not to talk about these events anymore.

 

Although Indonesian media has dismissed the story as folktales of the indigenous people of the area, the Kalimantan Press reports 23 witnesses to the burial of “a very short ape man-like creature that had a human face, hands and feet”. It appears the creature was possibly of female gender since it was reported to have large prominent breasts.

 

“If this creature does exist, as witness accounts attest to, ‘she’ might have lost her offspring or may be unable to reproduce and is trying to replace her kin with an infant from the village. It is just a hypothesis, but there are several other known cases of baboons and chimps kidnapping human babies” explains Australian anthropologist Jim McFurrow, who has been studying the area for twenty years.

Anthropologist Jim McFurrow believes the story to be based in fact. The act of lying being an important taboo in the Dayak culture

Some experts have suggested that Orang Pendek might be a surviving specimen of the Flores Man, an Indonesian native hominid that lived in the region some 13,000 years ago.

 

“For these people, lying is a social taboo that can get you expelled by the village for long periods of time. I wouldn’t understand why they would all lie about these events” he admits, visibly puzzled.

One more story of a body and a government cover-up.  So many of these reports have a ring of truth to them, so then the question really is, "Why are the world's governments covering up the existence of other living hominids?"

I think we should just start adding these kinds of reports into our database...

something like:

 

Date

Location information (as available)

Copy/Paste new articles (all of them) as the narrative

Researcher Comments:  Story/witness has been silenced or will no longer discuss the issue for mysterious reasons.

Notes:  Potential Cover-up

One more story of a body and a government cover-up.  So many of these reports have a ring of truth to them, so then the question really is, "Why are the world's governments covering up the existence of other living hominids?"

 

This is one area of the sasquatch phenomenon that I've found difficult to fathom, that the U.S. government in particular has sasquatch bodies, and even reports of live captures, and are hiding this fact.  I want to leave room that this is not happening.  It seems inconceivable that the government would do that, and for what purpose?  Dr. Jeff Meldrum has stated he believes they have bodies and are covering this fact up.

 

What are some possible reasons for covering this up?  Some I've heard is it would damage the logging industry and other projects if yet another endangered species habitat was discovered or the problems with recognizing a previously unrecognized indigenous people.  It's been speculated the military is researching them for infrasonic weapons and their stealth abilities among other potential military procurements.  David Paulides champions the idea of a cover-up of missing persons in national and state recreation areas and suggested a reason might be the bad publicity it could cause to multi million dollar developments and other damage it could cause the parks service administration of these areas.  

 

David Paulides especially notes the story of 7-year-old Dennis Martin who may have been abducted by a sasquatch, a sasquatch being seen soon after the boy suddenly vanished carrying something on its shoulder.  Paulides claims the FBI covered up facts that would allude to this.  He also notes how Army Special Forces immediately came in there for a week and didn't want anything to do with the parks service or other authorities, which could allude to the idea of the military wanting to obtain a sasquatch.  Here is a video interview with David Paulides about this.

I'm curious what other possible reasons governments could have in keeping things like this a secret?  Also, I'm leaving some room that the government is not covering this up, just for the simple fact I find it hard to believe.  But something I've mentioned before, if someone does find a body they might should first present it to the news media before contacting authorities, just in case the reports of them hiding bodies is true.

UPDATE: STORY LIKELY UNTRUE

 

 

 

The story about the Orang Pendek being shot and killed is probably not true.  The publication that the story seems to originate from, World News Daily Report is a news and political satire web publication and much of what it publishes is fiction.  Several sasquatch research organizations have repeated this article at their sites, but it seems they unknowingly repeated each other's fake report.  The web publication mixes truth with fictitious accounts, in this case a bit of truth would be it is believed that fossil finds for Flores Man, also called the Hobbit, could be the Orang Pendek.
