HATTIESBURG, Miss. — A man claims to have shot and killed Bigfoot and said he has the corpse to prove it.
KSAT.com reported that “Bigfoot hunter” Rick Dyer claims he fatally shot the mythical creature in a wooded area of San Antonio, Texas on Sept. 6, 2012.
Dyer said the Sasquatch’s body has since been at an unnamed university in Washington state getting tested. He said the school plans to hold a press conference in February, standing behind him.
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 Snopes.com.
