Dyer says on Facebook that his claim has been verified by “DNA, MRI , Cat scan, 3D imager and much much more!” He has also shown the body to more than 130 people whom he describes now as “believers.” Dyer claims his catch is “100% real” and bemoaned those who are “so full of hate and doubt.”
And his story? If believed, it goes like this.
The encounter happened while he was on an expedition with a film crew near San Antonio. Armed with $200 worth of ribs purchased from Walmart, Dyer tacked the meat to a tree as bait. An “easy meal” for a hungry Bigfoot, he says on video.
Now, before you go an question the authenticity of his claims, we’re left wondering, who are these horrible filmmakers Dyer hired? The cinematography is worse than the Blair Witch Project.
But we digress. Maybe we should just defer to the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, which describes itself as the only scientific group dedicated to exploring the Sasquatch mystery. The organization was quick to chime in on Dyer’s alleged find.
“Hey Houston reporters,” the group wrote on Twitter. “Do your job. A wee bit of fact checking would reveal that Rick Dyer is a stupid desperate serial hoaxer …”
