The show “Finding Bigfoot” may have been outdone by a hunter in Texas with the release of a possible Sasquatch corpse photo.
Texas TV station KSAT reported on Thursday that hunter Rick Dyer released a picture of a dead Bigfoot creature he claims to have killed.
The pictures of the blonde beast show only part of its face and the body lying down on a table.
Dyer told reports that he shot the hairy behemoth in San Antonio in 2012 while filming the documentary “Shooting Bigfoot” about his hunt.
He allegedly handed the body off for testing to prove its authenticity.
“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,” Dyer said in the report.
This is the first positive ID that Dyer has had of a beast in all his travels to capture a Bigfoot. He has been to multiple countries and did not think he would find one until he heard a 911 call from a couple who said they lived near a hairy humanoid.
"I nailed ... pork ribs from the WalMart down the street to the side of the tree, and low and behold, he came and started eating the pork ribs off the tree,” Dyer told KSAT in February 2013,
Years of hoaxes and grainy video footage have left little belief in people’s minds as to the validity of Dyer’s experience.
But the hunter is adamant that the corpse is authentic. Dyer wants to prove the skeptics wrong by bringing the body with him on a press tour.
The body will be on display as well as a release of the apparent DNA tests and physical examinations.
