Bigfoot Body Discovered in Northern Georgia

 

DNA and photographic evidence of a Bigfoot will be the centerpiece of a press conference Friday in Palo Alto, being held by two men who claim they have located a body of one in northern Georgia.

"I think you'll find that this is the real deal," said Robert Barrows, event publicist. Former correctional officer Rick Dyer and police officer Matthew Whitton, both Georgia residents, will not say where they found the body, or where it's at now.

Redwood City resident and veteran Bigfoot tracker Tom Biscardi, creator of the documentary "Bigfoot Lives," says he spent the weekend in Georgia viewing the body, and that a team of scientists have been called in to perform an analysis.

  And If It Really Is?  
 
Are we all going to start hunting these creatures next? Some things are left better to being unknown.

  Remember  
 
The Cartoon Network is about to launch a new show about cryptids (or whatever the word is) ... you know, legendary monsters and creatures that probably don't exist.

Don't be surprised if this turns out to be a publicity stunt for the show.

Could be, especially considering the guy promoting this runs an advertising firm and has worked in Hollywood for years. http://barrows.com --- If so, it seems strange that these enthusiasts would put their creds on the line for some viral ad campaign.

  It Wouldn't Surprise Me  
 
Of course nothing much does these days.
 
  by: TaraB     08/13/2008 07:22 AM     
  damn  
 
this might be the real deal,
but its been around for a few weeks now??
man imagine the smell lol
according to the searching for big foot website there not saying where its found and that they walk upright like us because they seen several others where they found the body, they also said they will be catching a live one soon,

lol does that sound like a good idea??
i dont think so.
 
  by: cray0la     08/13/2008 07:32 AM     
  B-B-B-Bigfoot!  
 
I believe they've found my chia pet.
Hip Hip Hooray!

kidding right Caution? Is this for real? It's not April 1 yet you guys!:)

  cryptids  
 
could be a publicity stunt. some say that's what the montauk monster is and there's now footage from texas of a coyote they're claiming is a chupacabra. i hope it's real because i believe they exist, but we'll see.
 
  by: ManilaRyce     08/13/2008 12:14 PM     
  Sir?  
 
"how did you catch the bigfoot sir" "well we were eating our jack links and he came outta nowheres" i can totally see this being a stunt but if its not im gunna be upset. that was all the fun the mystery do they exist or not? now its just gunna be another animal, wat a shame.

  I'll wait  
 
I hang out at a cryptozoology board once in a while and everyone is somewhere between excited and horrified. Excited because so many of them will get to say "I told you so!" to people who have labeled them crazy for believing in Sasquatch and horrified because there's a plan to capture one alive. Greater primates are very intelligent and I've always had a problem with capturing them and keeping them in cages for any reason. I can't imagine how the critter must feel, but it must be just awful.

I'll wait for the science guys to march in and make their proclamations after an exam and DNA testing of the corpse. So that means I'll be waiting for the press conference on Friday, I guess.

  @all  
 
what i hope is if it happens to be real, and after they do the studies that they cover it up for our "safety"
 
  by: johnnymca   08/13/2008 03:50 PM     
  The photo  
 
appears to be a frame from the most famous of the so-called clips of a bigfoot.

Nothing new here, folks.
 
  by: LeePIII   08/13/2008 05:11 PM     
  oh i dunno  
 
with global warming and all that fur they have... maybe the increasing temperature/changing weather is forcing the bigfoot to expand its' hunting grounds. i feel like watching "Harry and the Hendersons" now...
 
  by: calilac     08/13/2008 05:34 PM     
  Seriously  
 
Be serious. The closest this probably is to bigfoot is a decomposing drifter in a homemade Chewbacca costume. Where's James Randi when we need him?
 
  by: captainchainsaw   08/13/2008 05:37 PM     
  No pics released yet  
 
Well, not of this particular find. All the photos being used so far have been stock photos from other "bigfoot" stories over the years.

Photographs are supposed to be released on Friday.

Haven't people done this before? Claimed they had undeniable evidence of bigfoot, called a press conference, then totally flaked on the press conference? Why set the press conference so far away? The only reason I can think is to make people start talking about it.

  Tom Biscardi  
 
I would find it highly unlikely that this announcement from Tom Biscardi is a publicity stunt for the Cartoon Network. He has dedicated much of his life looking for Bigfoot. Look him up.

I found this. It seems he got a bit too enthusiastic when someone convinced him there had been one captured alive. People blamed him for the hoax, but whatever. http://209.85.173.104/...

  @bigfoot  
 
Some one should tell big foot where going to either throw him in a zoo or make them work in coal mines.
 
  by: Mannyishere     08/13/2008 10:12 PM     
  @leepiii  
 
Of course thats a stock photo. Maybe read a little more carefully before jumping to conclusions.
 
  by: Kuhl   08/13/2008 11:03 PM     
  On the plus side...  
 
At least bigfoot was dead. Who knows what people would have done with him/her had he/she been caught alive? Paraded him/her around the world in some kind of freak show? Experimented on him/her? Disected? Who knows.

  These guys killed it, should be charged  
 
This body was not found in Georgia! The body was shipped there to throw off other bigfoot hunters.. They know theres big money involved and they dont want other hunters to know where they really found it, If this creature was shot, then they should charge these money hungry guys with murder. After all this could have been a man in a suit. I bet they killed it but they will try to say otherwise. This is the real deal this time I know for a fact.

  @caution  
 
Woop! I must have been looking at the wrong pics. LOL! I haven't seen that one before.

I'm still waiting for the science guys to weigh in on this one. Will be interesting, that's for sure.

I'll see it when I believe it, and I may just want to see it.
 
  by: Megaman1986   08/15/2008 08:56 AM     
  These sorts of stories...  
 
...pop up all the time on Short News and in the tabloids, then just as soon as they appeared they dissapear completely when the press-conference doesn't happen/the pictures never appear/the body vanishes/it's proven false etc etc.
 
  by: barryriley   08/15/2008 11:46 AM     
  Oh no  
 
I hope the Russians don't get him first, we'll never get to see it!

  Bunch of damn fools  
 
I live with Bigfoot and he's sitting right here watching TV with me while I type this and he may smell dead but believe me, he eats like a pig and is very much alive.

It's a hoax, already debunked.. heres your proof.
