Texas man claims he killed the legendary Bigfoot and has proof


Rick Dyer calls himself a "Master Tracker" but also knows there are people out there who are going to dispute his claim, and he doesn't care.

To understand his Bigfoot story, you must first understand Rick Dyer. He is a former used car salesman who use to live in Las Vegas but travels the world making money off of his Bigfoot stories. Stories even he admits have not always been true.

Back in 2008, his original "Bigfoot" turned out to be a hoax. Dyer says he bought a gorilla suit. But that was a different time, and he's now out to show everyone that the beast really exists.

His new Bigfoot is named Hank, and Dyer claims this one is the real deal.

Dyer says he shot the 800-pound beast back in 2012 just outside of San Antonio. He used raw ribs from Walmart to lure the beast.

Now, Dyer has hit the road to show off the body, which he says is proof that the legend of Bigfoot is real.

Believe, don't believe -- it makes no difference to Dyer; it's not going to stop him from showing it off. He just wants you to be the judge.

Dyer and Bigfoot were at Traders Village on Sunday. They will be at the Alamo Drafthouse Theatre in Katy on Monday and the Drafthouse Theater in northwest Houston on Tuesday. Tickets for the events are sold out.
