Man claims photos show he fatally shot Bigfoot creature in Texas
Even as the rest of the world scoffs and makes sport, one man remains steadfast in his belief that he's killed one of the biggest prizes in the cryptozoological pantheon.
Self-proclaimed Bigfoot hunter Rick Dyer claims he shot and killed one of the ape-human hybrids in Texas and he's making the media rounds to get the word out about his discovery.
Dyer spoke to San Antonio TV station KSAT on Thursday and told them during a Skype interview that he had shot a Bigfoot specimen northwest of the city in a wooded area back in 2012. He said he's done a variety of tests on the body and is showing the carcass to the public in hopes of swaying opinion.
Meanwhile, some in the Bigfoot research community say the specimen that Dyer is showing pictures of resembles a Lord Of The Rings character a bit too much.
He's come under fire from numerous paranormal groups for what they claim are false Bigfoot pictures and outright hoaxes.
Repeated emails to Rick Dyer's social media accounts and YouTube channel were not returned.
