Loren Coleman Comments on No Kill

I like what Loren Coleman wrote in the comments section at Cryptomundo concerning the killing of Bigfoot. Coleman responded to comments on his post Taking a Stand Against Killing Bigfoot about this subject back in April of 2012:

The kill-it-to-prove-it stance is a simple Victorian view of the world that is quite out-of-date. At the end of the 19th century, hundreds of animals were killed to “prove” they exist. James Audubon killed thousands of birds to identify, draw, and paint them.
Those days are in the past. 
There is no reason that Bigfootery, Sasquatch studies, and hominology should grasp the antiquated forms of species verification. DNA studies, live captures, capture and release, and species studied while in captivity allow for many modern scientific and humane methods of species confirmation. As soon as Bigfoot organizations realize that, they will be taken more seriously by funding and scholarly bodies. ~ Loren Coleman

If you haven't read Coleman's piece be sure to do so.
