Show me for money

In Liberia, the guys at our local partner and survey organization swear that the best hunters have the power to change themselves to animals.

Perhaps this is culturally insensitive of me, but I have a standing offer of $1000 cash to any of them if they can find one of these guys, bring him to me, and demonstrate. $2000 if I can film it.

Incentives matter.

I’m pretty sure my money is safe. But in the unlikely event I’m wrong, you will be treated to one of the best blog posts of all time, and I will consider it money well spent.
