Bigfoot ‘body’ on display in Phoenix area

Bigfoot 'body' on display in Phoenix area

Phoenix (KPHO) — If you’ve ever wanted to see Sasquatch, now could be your chance.

A sideshow-like display featuring an alleged Bigfoot body will begin its tour in the Phoenix area next week.

The specimen comes from Rick Dyer, a self-proclaimed ‘Bigfoot Tracker’ whose web site says, “I tracked a creature. I shot it. With tears in my eyes, I watched it take its last breath.” Dyer says that was in 2012.

Dyer has hired promoter Andrew Clacy to book stops on the “I Told You So” tour. Clacy told CBS 5 News that the body has undergone DNA testing, MRI scans, an autopsy, and more scientific testing in the last year. However, results from those tests are not yet available.

Clacy told CBS 5 News he is negotiating with various Valley locations that would be interested in hosting the exhibit on Tuesday, February 11 and Wednesday, February 12. He said there would likely be a “very minimal” entrance fee of around $10 for adults and $5 for kids. A glass wall will separate the body from those who enter the trailer.

Clacy and Dyer know that they have a credibility barrier. Dyer admits to being the man behind one of the biggest Bigfoot hoaxes of all time. In 2008 he was involved in a scheme to sell another alleged bigfoot body to the highest bidder. The story got national attention and Dyer went into hiding for months.

Both men insist this time is different. “I spent hours looking at the specimen and it’s real,” Clacy says in a Youtube video. “I’ve touched it, its skin. it’s not a joke.”

Michael Shermer, the executive director of the Skeptics Society, told CBS 5 News the whole idea is ridiculous. “Science is not done by promotional tours,” Shermer said. “Why hasn’t he submitted the body for scientists to analyze? The answer is obvious: it’s a fake. If he has nothing to hide then let him show it to the professionals first before taking his victory lap.”

    Ok well I’m not convinced because if there’s been a real bigfoot shot.
    And killed and autopsied and DNA tested and now on display then,
    Why hasn’t natgeo and the B.F.R.O and the rest of the organization
    Made public statements and actually came out at “press conference and publicly given a statement or if they haven’t due to inaccessibility from
    The two guys who supposedly shot and killed “Bigfoot”then I cry hoax
    And they should be publicly humiliated and put in the spot light not for the first time but now a second and last time if I’m wrong then prove it,prove me different and give up the proof isn’t it in the pudding thanks and feel free to email me asap with that proof
