Dyer said he killed the 8-foot-tall 800 pound creature by shooting it twice in the back and once in the head.

He said he used pork ribs from Walmart and attached them to trees to lure the beast.

“We nailed ‘em all around the trees, and then that night we heard Bigfoot come back,” Dyer told Esquire. “I chased him down in the middle of the night. I shot him once, he ran, I shot him again.”

Dyer said his evidence includes DNA, DNA sequencing, scans and an autopsy.

“I am the first person who has ever killed a Bigfoot, that’s without a doubt,” Dyer said. “Others may claim it, but no one has produced a body but Rick Dyer.”

Dyer said he plans to take the Bigfoot’s body on a tour across the United States. After that, he said it will end up in a museum.

Dyer said a medical press conference is scheduled for February 9 in Washington, in which his evidence will come to light.

Despite his “evidence,” Dyer has been caught trying to fool the public before. In 2008, he claimed to have killed a Bigfoot, but it turned out to be a rubber ape costume, according to

    They should charge him for murder for an undiscovered species! They should be left alone in peace.

  • Wendi says:

    “Throughout the United States and into Mississippi.” Hmm, I’ve always thought Mississippi was PART of the United States.

  • G.A says:

    If you have been following this or any of his past hoaxes, not only is the guy deranged, but he is a pretty poor hoaxer. No worries. No Bigfoot were harmed in the making of this hoax either.

  • df says:

    San antonio police said unofficially they would of investigated the shooting the reason they didnt was becuase its a fabricated hoax..

  • Kimberly says:

    I also agree. If this is to be proven to be true then he should be charged with murder. These creatures deserve to live just as much as we are. They need to be left alone and in peace.

  • The TRUTH says:

    What a FRAUD.

  • les says:

    If true the man is stupid. No one in their right mind would kill
    A Big foot….SHOT IN THE BACK,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,.

  • Al Carter says: This is pretty much anyone needs to know about Rick Dyer

  • Andrew Clacy says:

    This is a hoax, if you see this man please contact your local authorities.

  • Steve Lane says:

    Visit this this blog and learn the truth about Rick and his scamming ways….

  • Eva Salazar says:

    This guy is a murderer!! If he indeed killed this creature, he should go to prison, once they determine that the Bigfoot has human DNA. I hope it is a hoax because no bipedal creature deserves to be shot in the back.


  • Robert Gift says:

    Haha hoax.
    If there were a big foot, I’d shoot the guy who would shoot it.

  • dustin johnson says:

    Most of you people are insane. Even if bigfoot was real and if he did kill it why would he be charged with murder? Shod I be charged with murder for enjoying my t-bone steak last night?

  • tee says:

    If bigfoot were real, don’t ya think a skeleton or two would have been found by now. To those that believe, bet you have an IQ of a donut!!

  • I understand hunting to put food on the table. I hate hunting just for a trophy!!! How stupid to shoot an unknown being in the back just to claim attention. How sad that if he were to go on tour people would pay to go see it.

  • AwesomeO says:

    This man should be given a beating, not an interview. Bigfoot isn’t real, biologists would have found it in the last 200 years. If you believe in bigfoot, you’re dumb.

  • Cris says:

    What university is behind him? Their reputation is at risk if it’s a hoax. And less than 150 years ago they thought gorillas were a myth too until they finally found them…. Makes you wonder. He should be charged with a crime if this is just another hoax.

  • Ratt Mann says:

    We’ll see. Until undisputed evidence is provided and verified by reputable scientists this is simply a claim from a known hoaxer. Rick Dyer is a liar. Prove us all wrong, Rick.

  • Vaness says:

    How sad…. Is he the animal or the man that shot him he wasn’t hurting anybody actually it brings tears to my eyes to know that someone would kill a very traditional “story” to tell the kids every generation of them and you just killed it. It was fun when it was a mystery and he got to live just because your not a city person and think u have meaning and rights to live what about him. What if he had a family?
