UPDATE: Bigfoot Found?

Bigfoot found? (click for larger image)UPDATE: The press conference with the hunters has now been uploaded to YouTube. Check it out below!

You’ve probably heard about this by now, but what the hell; it’s a slow news day anyway, right? Right.
A Georgia policeman and a former corrections officer have submittd the following image to news outlets across the country, telling the world that it is the body of a 7 foot, 7 inch tall apelike creature they believe to be the legendary Bigfoot. Ether these guys actually know what they’re talking about or they’ve pulled a damn fine scam on the news world. Their methods are questionable, at best, not allowing anyone else near the body and refusing to disclose where it’s being held right now.

I wasn’t surprised when it was on Fox News (see the video below), but when it cropped up on CNN this morning, well, I had to say something. It’s just too rich to ignore anymore. The hunters state that the creature is undergoing numerous examination by scientists and a press conference is scheduled to take place today at 12:00 noon PST that will present the findings to the world.

Or reveal this as a big publicity stunt for the sequel to Strange Wilderness, one of the two. We’ll let you know as soon as the new information is out there, so stay tuned!

    Now that you mention it we’ve not heard from Foy since this all started… oh, shit…

    Wait… we have a compound?

    • Sam Hell

      “Wait… we have a compound?”

      Sorry, I have a tendency to exaggerate.

      I meant to say “Estate.”

      • Johnny Butane

        Ah, all right. That makes more sense, then. 😀

  • Enraged_Otter

    OMG if Foy stops writing reviews suddenly then we’ll know what really happened. Here’s hoping the Asylum execs haven’t caught you yet man. j/k

  • DW Bostaph Jr

    What a fucking load of shit. I hope these guys are tarred and feathered for creating this needless noise and bringing much un-needed skepticism on a fringe science that has been trying to validate itself for a while now.

    IF they do not pony up something to someone who matters, then the whole thing needs to be investigated. I hope it was all worth it to the cop, who will have zero credibility when this is all done.

    The cryptozoological community needs to come together on this and demand the right thing be done. Moneymaker, Meldrum, Coleman, Redfern, et al. need to lay differences aside in this time of need.

      Should I bring my tin foil hat to the meeting?

    I read one of the guys involved in this find was part of a Bigfoot hoax in the past. It’s kinda silly when someone claims to have hard evidence of things like this but keeps it hidden from the public. Like a few months ago when someone claimed to have video of an alien peeking through a window. They went to the media with their claims, but refused to produce the video for some dumb reason.

    I’ll make a solemn promise to everyone of you right here and now that if I find a Bigfoot or an Alien that shit’s going on Youtube pronto. I’ll wheel the carcass around at conventions and let people take pictures with it. I’ll even take it up to the Dread Central compound and let the guys hang out with it while they tape an episode of DFF. Yeah, I’m awesome, I know.

      Ah, c’mon dude, you know if you really found an alien body, you’d have X-Files/Men in Black types on your ass black-bagging you in no time.

      • Sam Hell

        Well, I certainly don’t want my ass “black bagged,” as you put it.

        I’ll just slip a Bigfoot mask over the alien to throw them off my trail. These guys seem to care not for the Sasquatches.

    I got wrapped up in the middle of all that. The night the photo broke, I played around with the image and the costume image Loren Coleman posted on Cryptomundo, and saw it was a solid match. Wound up conversing with Loren in e-mail, got my pic on his site, and was briefly referenced (indirectly) on his subsequent interview on Coast to Coast AM.

    That kinda rocked.

    My God that chupacabra footage is so lame… a hariless dog running down the road; it must be a goatsuckers!

    Not that this is any less lame…

  • DW Bostaph Jr

    I think it will be interesting to see the development of the Chupacabras case. The whole thing began with an alien looking kangaroo and now it appears that the word will go on to describe a new hybrid canid species.

    As far as the sasquatch story goes, I will remain quiet until there is more to say…

  • Kryten Syxx

    Well, at least it’s a step up from Fox News attacking video games and non-republicans.
