By Ian Johnston IT WAS hailed as "definitive evidence" that Bigfoot existed. The discovery of "something large, hairy and frozen in ice" in woods in America by a heroic police officer made international headlines and attracted interest from a team who have been earnestly searching for the legendary ape-like beast for years. They purchased the remains for an undisclosed fee and set about the delicate process of thawing the body. So it is hard to imagine just how disappointing it must have...

By Jim Gilchrist PERHAPS not quite as awful as being kidnapped by Orcs, but rolling down a hillside in a giant hamster ball does sound rather like the kind of mishap that might befall an unwary Hobbit in Lord of the Rings. Billy Boyd, the slight-framed Glaswegian actor who played Pippin in the blockbuster film trilogy of Tolkien's epic, goes wide-eyed at the prospect, as if newly confronted by an Ent: "They tell me they put water in the ball as well; I don't know how that's supposed to...

By BEN McCONVILLE EDINBURGH, Scotland - She's as much an emblem, and a tourist draw, as tartan, bagpipes, and shortbread. And now Nessie's back.

Some people are laughing, yes laughing, at Wednesday's Rancho Palos Verdes mountain lion sighting. But not me. No sir. As far as I'm concerned, if Hawthorne electrical contractor Romeo Gutierrez said that he saw a big cat coming toward him near Narcissa Drive and Plumtree Road, then that's exactly what he saw. "You ever see the Discovery Channel when (wild) cats look like they're getting ready to eat? That's what it looked like," he told Breeze "wildlife" reporter Nick Green. Still, despite...

In life, 70 million years ago, the five-foot-long animal would have resembled Nessie, the long-necked creature reported to inhabit Scotland's Loch Ness. The new fossil skeleton is one of the most complete of its type ever found, researchers said. It will go on display Wednesday at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology's Museum of Geology. Plesiosaurs lived for...

Kear, whose team studied 30 opalised fossils mainly...
