Man Says He Killed Bigfoot and Can Prove it

Posted on: 3:17 pm, January 13, 2014, by


SAN ANTONIO, Texas (CNN) -Nearly a year ago a self-described professional Bigfoot hunter claimed to have shot and killed one of the creatures in San Antonio.

The alleged incident was featured in a documentary released last year that left more questions than answers.

On Thursday Rick Dyer finally released pictures of the alleged beast’s body.

“Bigfoot is 100 percent real — there’s no question about that,” Dyer said.

Dyer claims he shot and killed the mythical creature in a wooded area on the northwest side near Loop 1604 and Highway 151 in early September 2012.

Until Thursday Dyer never provided any proof beyond a grainy video clip he shot of the big beast outside his tent. More video was included in the documentary “Shooting Bigfoot,” but it failed to impress skeptics.

Following a lengthy battle with his investors, Dyer said he was finally able to reclaim the body.

“I have been worried for so long. I have been put off for so long, and finally we went up to Washington (state) and we got the body,” Dyer said. “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 has let more than 100 people see the body up close and recorded their reactions.

“We wanted to get people’s reactions, make them believers, and we did it to over a 130 people,” Dyer said. “We definitely made them believers.”

Despite a history of past Bigfoot hoaxes, (in 2008, Dyer claimed to have killed a Bigfoot, but it turned out to be a rubber ape costume, according to, Dyer insists he’s not fooling around this time.

“Bigfoot is not a tooth fairy — Bigfoot is real,” Dyer said. “The most important thing to me is being vindicated, letting people know that I am the best Bigfoot tracker in the world and it’s not just me saying it.”

Dyer plans to hold a news conference in the coming days, where he will show the full body and release the test results.

Following the big reveal, Dyer plans to take the body on tour across the U.S., Mexico and Canada. He said he will charge a small fee to view the body.

    • Jerome Alaniz says:

      I agree. If it were true, it would be all over world news.

    • Jerome Alaniz says:

      I agree. If it were true, it would be all over world news. I guess we’ll have to wait until February 9th to view his press conference.

  • Steve says:

    Wait until the Bexar County District Attorney files murder charges!

  • John says:

    He’s a well known hoaxer and criminal, I wouldn’t believe a word of this. Just google his name, Rick Dyer, it’s pretty shocking that this guy is not in jail already. I’m not sure it’s wise to report on this guy, since he is using the press to scam more money out of people.

  • soldier says:

    liar liar pants on fire

  • monica says:

    How does he plan on keeping the body from decaying while showing driving it from place to place? And should it be decayed more than what the picture shows by now?

  • Mark says:

    If he did we would have seen the body. Not just a few. If it looks like a hoax, sounds like a hoax, and it WAS A Hoax before,,, it is this time.

  • Polly. Talley says:

    He is a liar did you see how he shifted his eyes, if he was telling the truth he would have looked straight into the camera or straight into the eyes of the interviewer. Also why was there no news of this before now. My goodness this was kept quiet for 2 years. Give me a break! A myth is a myth.

  • Al Carter says: This short video tells all about Rick Dyer and what he really thinks. History has shown that he’s a serial hoaxer, a con artist and a pathological liar.

  • Bigfeet says:

    Its a total and complete hoax people. The body looks like a grade 6 art project

  • Diana George says:

    Hoax! and if there were any still living ( because I believe there may have been in the past) and he killed it, then he should be locked up for killing an endangered species.

  • Donna says:

    If this really was real then the government would have covered it up!!! I don’t think he EVER would have gotten the body back. Therefore I say hoax!

  • Dick Messenger says:

    If true, he should be charged with murder!
