If you are reading this while out in the woods searching for Sasquatch, you’re too late. Bigfoot is dead. Rick Dyer, the apparently-famed Bigfoot hunter, “shot and killed” the creature in San Antonio, “nearly a year ago,” according to KSAT.
While Dyer didn’t exactly keep the trophy secret, the only proof he released was a grainy video clip he claims to have taken of the big beast inadvisedly lurking outside his tent in a wooded area outside of San Antonio. While Dyer had released some of the video on his YouTube channel — and some was included in the documentary “Shooting Bigfoot”— it failed to impress skeptics.
That could all change, though, now that Dyer was able to reclaim the body of the mythic hirsute creature and released photos of his kill to interested parties, fellow trackers and the skeptical public. In a news clip from ABC’s San Antonio affiliate KSAT, Dyer reveals the photos of the Bigfoot he claims to have lured to its death with the help of some Walmart pork ribs that he had nailed to a tree.
In the video, Dyer defends his catch against doubters. “Every test that you can possibly imagine was performed on this body — from DNA tests to 3D optical scans to body scans. It is the real deal. It’s Bigfoot and Bigfoot’s here, and I shot it and now I’m proving it to the world.” (Via) Dyer says he’ll hold a news conference shortly to reveal the full Bigfoot body and test results.
Dyer didn’t let KSAT keep all the glory for themselves, though. In addition to their report, he released his own video showing more photos of the Bigfoot he claims to have killed, posted under the compelling title, “New Bigfoot Picture’s NOT on KSAT12.”
Dyer also took the Bigfoot body on the road, much like Abraham Lincoln before him, letting mourners and gawkers pay their respects while he recorded their reactions to seeing the body. ”We wanted to get people’s reactions, make them believers, and we did it to over a 130 people,” Dyer told KSAT about the road tour. “We definitely made them believers.”
Dyer reportedly plans to take the body on tour across the U.S., Mexico and Canada where, for a small fee, he will let people view the body.
