Zombie Invasion! Flee!

Following yesterday's post on Bigfoot along the Trans Canada Highway, CBC reporter Cecil Haire  today terrified CBC listeners with news of the zombie apocalypse.

Apparently, someone has reprogrammed a traffic sign near Windsor Lake to warn motorists of a zombie invasion and impending doom. The sign also flashes that people should save themselves and reminds people of the movie folklore that you should never be overconfident about a zombie's demise.

Happy motoring!

UPDATE: CBC web article

Newfoundland Bigfoot: Help me in the hunt!

As you drive along the Trans Canada Highway, motorists on the lookout for a large, hairy animal may find themselves staring at something decidedly more cryptozoological than your average Newfoundland moose.

As I was driving back to St. John's from Bay Roberts on the Trans Canada Highway earlier this week, I spotted something just east of the Salmonier Line turnoff.

"That tree stump looks just like Bigfoot," I thought.  Then, as I came closer, "My God! It IS Bigfoot!"

Some genius prankster has put up a plywood cutout of a sasquatch-looking creature just at the edge of a pond, 60 meters or so off the highway.

Folklore junkie that I am, I immediately recognized the outline of the monster captured in the controversial Patterson film of 1967.

I returned today, and crept close to the monster cut-out, snapping a series of photos, now on Flickr.

I'd love to know who created this, and why! If you have ANY ideas as to who made it, email me at or text me at 709-685-3444.  If the creator wants to remain anonymous, I'd be happy to oblige, but I'd love to interview them about their monster, and the story behind it.

PS  - Here is an article I wrote about Bigfoot in Newfoundland in 2007.
