Except it's a bonobo.
Field and Stream magazine, 'The World's Leading Outdoor Magazine' has published their 'Best of 2008: Sasquatch Trail Cam Photos.' Thing is, the runner-up submitted by Pete Morgan of Bradford, Pennsylvania looks awfully familiar to my pal science author Vanessa Woods and I.
The reason? It's her photo.
Bonobos are our closest living relatives, and share 98.7% of our DNA. Lola ya Bonobo is the world's only bonobo sanctuary, with over 60 orphans from the bushmeat and pet trade. Bonobos frequently walk upright and look much more like ancestral humans than chimpanzees.
Since the photo has been posted without Vanessa's permission, we would like Field and Stream to do two things:
1. Link the photo to www.friendsofbonobos.org 2. Post a small editorial about the source of the photo (something like the text above would be great)
