Coming to a town near you: The body of a Bigfoot, aka Sasquatch, killed by hunter Rick Dyer in Texas back in 2012. Dyer will also release the results of DNA testing on the large, hairy body that confirms the reality of Bigfoot.

OK, hold on, back up, take a deep breath here. We realize the words "alleged" and "allegedly" don't appear anywhere in that first paragraph, and well they should.

Dead Bigfoot Or Rubber Costume? (YOU DECIDE)

Unless this is concluded by DANA testing, Just another hoax. But in the unlikely event he did kill this creature, For shame on him as a person.

Until then, I take this as the equivalent of someone saying they boarded a UFO to play cards with Elvis, Jim Morrison, Jimmy Hoffa and the tooth fairy.

Was there a STAR WARS convention in the area? Cause I think they might've shot some poor schlub in a Chewbacca costume.

If "creature" is real and as the story is portrayed, looks to have very strong human characteristics. I would fear possible charges if I were this person. Clearly more human then animal.

Something stinks about this story. If it were real, it'd be no less then 6 weeks of top headline news.

At the very least, such a creature would likely be considered rare and endangered. Killing it would or should be a chargable offense, unless the creature actually endangered the shooter's life. The problem is that Dyer claims to have intentionally put himself at risk, and (I think) he said his plan was to track the creature down to capture or kill it.

I agree, the story stinks. For one thing, Dyer is already a known hoaxer. Secondly, he said he took it to a university to be examined and to have a DNA test done. Utter nonsense. Conveniently, Dyer omits naming the university. Even so, if such a carcass showed up as a university, there'd be big news about it from the university, although reserving anything definitive about the DNA. So if Dyer is so certain about the beast, why not name the university? He's just trying to get his name back in the spotlight again. Dyer the liar.

LOL! Good comparison. Crypto crooks have been around for a long time. Dyer reminds me of the carnies at the old traveling carnival freak shows with the half-woman/half spider exhibit, real mermaids, 15' giant Assyrian king, a living abominable snowman from Tibet, etc., and the gimmick of offering $5000 to anyone who can prove they aren't real. The catch was that you can only look at them. Patrons exit the exhibits laughing at what a phony scam it was. Dyer isn't as smart or skilled as the traveling carnies were at working the shills. Too soon, Dyer, too soon.

Is that even a question? If that isn't fake, then I don't know what is!
