Bigfoot hoax

NOW UPDATED BELOW

The body of a bigfoot has been discovered in North Georgia.  Two bigfoot hobby hunters, Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer say they were hiking in the woods in July when they came across the dead sasquatch.

The dead dirty ape is seven feet, seven inches tall and weighs more than 500 pounds.  Whitton and Dyer took it home - possibly by strapping it to the hood - and have stuffed it into a freezer.

The sasquatch seekers also say they saw three live bigfoots (bigfeet?) while they were hauling off their huge hairy hominid carcass.

Whitton and Dyer held a press conference on Friday and released a photo of their curious cadaver lying in a chest freezer with his intestines splayed across his torso like a string of sasquatch sausages.  They claim they intend to release video footage and DNA evidence that their hirsute humanoid is what they say it is and not at all a gorilla costume and some frozen deli cuts.

UPDATE

Bigfoot has been confirmed as a gorilla costume and some frozen deli cuts!

  Rick Biscardi, a Californian Bigfoot hunter, who allegedly paid $50,000 for the rights to Bigfoot turned it over to Steve Kulls, a self-styled "Sasquatch detective" for testing.  Kulls was unsure of the authenticity of Bigfoot so began to melt the ice block.  Within an hour the head was partially exposed, Kulls said "As I was now able to touch it, I was able to feel that it seemed mostly firm, but unusually hollow in one small section. This was yet another ominous sign. "  An ice crack then appeared around the feet which meant Kulls could get his hand in and discover he was touching a rubber foot.

Whitton and Dyer confirmed in a telephone conversation to Rick Biscardi that it was a hoax and promised to return the $50,000.  Whitton has since been fired from his job as a Georgia police officer.

I find it a little unbelievable that people still believe Big Foot exists. Of course it was a fake, all mythical creatures are fake. Do people still hunt for Dragons?

just because the biscardi bigfooot was a hoax does not mean to discount bigfoot. the evidence for bigfoot is very convincing i suggest people look into the subject instead of coming out with the same boring comments,, its a man in a suit. look bigfoot is a real animal so get over it all the disbelivers.
