Rick Dyer Bigfoot killed: Another hoax by Rick Dyer suspected as Bigfoot tours

Rick Dyer claims that Bigfoot has been killed -- by him -- and he's taken the body on a tour. On Feb. 24, Mail Online reported that Dyer has been charging people $20 to view the body of Bigfoot which is being housed in a display case. In case you were wondering just how "authentic" Dyer's story is, he actually made up a similar story in 2008 and it turned out to be a hoax.

Hoax or not, Dyer is making money on this adventure. People are coming out and paying money to take a look at this maybe-Bigfoot and Dyer finds his name all over the news yet again.

If Rick Dyer killed Bigfoot, one would think that there would need to be proof -- more than just a furry body laying in a glass casket. Well, Dyer says that he has done extensive DNA testing since his big kill in 2012 and that he's really sure that this is Bigfoot. No word on where the paperwork is or if he plans on releasing it to the public.

"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," says Dyer (via Mail Online).

And so Rick Dyer brings his Bigfoot, killed and preserved, with him on this road trip. He plans to bring his horse and pony, er, man and beast show to Louisiana, Georgia and Florida after he finishes a few more stops in Texas.
