Coleman explained his position in an email to me. Mr. Coleman stated, "I find it unfortunate that the members of any Bigfoot group are out in the woods, seemingly and randomly, shooting at furry animate cryptids they feel they should kill to prove the existence of Bigfoot. Besides the unknown legal implications of such behavior (What if the species is found to be a species of Homo? What if it is a human in a hairy suit?), I have been an open advocate of the live capture (telebiology), and non-killing of hairy unknown hominoids for decades."
