Bigfoot Body Or Clever Hoax?


By now, many of you interested in such things have no doubt heard of the purported Bigfoot body found by Georgia Sasquatch hunters, Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer in the forests of that state. A pending press announcement will make the news official, but in the meantime skeptics and the hopeful are dissecting what scant information exists like anxious children on Christmas Eve. So far, just one photo of the body as it rests in a freezer has been released to the public. The folks at Where Light Meets Dark have an interesting analysis of what this "corpse" really is.

Promotional stunt or genuine deal, we'll find out tomorrow. Interesting analysis of the images... but still, I guess there's a slight chance someone could've made a costume that, ironically, is in proper proportion.

I'm not getting my hopes up too much...

Where are the primatologists in all this?

The hype has been going on for a few weeks now, and no real scientist has shown interest in this (bogus?) find.

I remain skeptical, awaiting better evidence. My opinion thusfar is that this is yet another hoax. I am not optimistic and, in fact, debated for a week now whether I wanted to even cover the topic.

I am 99 percent sure that it is some sort of promotion from the movie company that is doing the PR for Biscardi and crew. Still,the only thing that gives me pause is the fact that this seems like a long way to push a hoax. Still,Biscardi and the actions of these two "men" make me very skeptical. Peace.

Hmmm... OK. Something about that just is off to my eyes... I can't put my finger on it yet... but something in the textures of the skin.
