Rick Dyer Kills Bigfoot. Really?

Bigfoot News Special Bigfoot News of the Century Edition

Rick Dyer has a taxidermied Bigfoot! I can now confirm with 100% accuracy that Rick Dyer does indeed have a taxidermied Bigfoot. I say this because this news has been independently confirmed for me by a number of extremely credible people in Bigfootery who investigated it themselves and then reported back to me. None of them were past Dyer supporters and they all absolutely hate Rick Dyer, so there is no pro-Dyer bias involved; on the contrary, there is a lot of anti-Dyer bias involved. All were either Dyer skeptics or Dyer fence-sitters.
At this point, all evidence points overwhelmingly towards Rick’s claim as being credible, unbelievable as it sounds.
In other words, I am 100% certain that Rick has a taxidermied Bigfoot in his possession.
If you do not believe my claim, that is just fine, and this should all come out soon at any rate.
I can also report that the presentation of the Bigfoot is going to take a little while. First of all, a more professional team has been assembled for the presentation to the public because Rick Dyer is pretty much the antithesis of professionalism. So the presentation is in a sense being taken out of Rick’s hands by the adults in the room, thank God.
In addition, it is going to take a bit of time for a more complete scientific presentation as they want to be as thorough and professional as possible. The science end of things is now being handled by an extremely professional team that has just now been put together and it may take them some time for more comprehensive, documented results to be released.
So there are two separate teams working:
A team working on a more professional presentation of the Bigfoot.
A team working on a more thorough and comprehensive documentation of the science end of things.
Unfortunately, I cannot name my sources at this time but be assured that they are some of the most high-ranking people in the business.
I think it is time, no matter what we think of Rick Dyer, to throw out a bigcongratulations to Rick Dyer for being the first human being to actually prove the existence of Bigfoot by personally obtaining a specimen. For better or for worse, the name Rick Dyer will go down in history for all time. Rick will also become a famous man, and I hope that he manages fame well, for his own sake and for the sake of the rest of us who have to bear with him, though I have little confidence that he will.
Maybe it is time for Rick to hire a publicist, a PR man, a life coach, and who know, maybe even a therapist.
Anyway, it looks like Rick is going to have a very interesting life cut out for him in the near future. The man has always cherished fame and recognition, and he’s about to get it in droves.
New Hank photos released. Several new photos of Hank with Rick Dyer positioned next to the taxidermied body have been leaked by a Team Tracker member.
Here they are:

And a comparison of two photos of Hank, which unfortunately do look a bit dissimilar. However, I am certain it is the same body. Why they look dissimilar is not known, but perhaps Rick had Hank’s body somewhat cleaned up.

Rick Dyer saga continues to unfold. The Bigfoot community’s overwhelming reaction to Dyer’s Bigfoot body, named Hank, has been rejection and derision. Virtually no one believes him, and a good 95% of the community are yelling and laughing that it is an obvious hoax. Personally I am not so sure. My position is that this is either a real dead Bigfoot or an excellent replica, and we have to investigate further to see which option is true. The odds are maybe 50-50 one way or the other, but there is definitely a possibility that this is a real dead Bigfoot.
Standards for Dyer to prove that Hank is real. Due to a number of factors including Rick’s long history of hoaxing, lying, punking and playing the community which continues up until recently, in addition to Rick’s obviously unstable and character disordered personality, utmost caution must be observed when testing to see if this specimen is real.
I think we can lay out a minimum of what we want as proof:
  1. MRI scans of Hank
  2. CT scans of Hank
  3. 3D imaging of Hank
  4. Full genetic sequencing of Hank’s DNA, preferably both nuclear and mitochondrial.
  5. Signed affidavits by scientists who worked on Hank testifying that this is  a real non-Homo sapiens hominid of some sort.
  6. A full autopsy report by the pathologists who examined the body.
  7. Statement of some sort by Morgan Matthews or other representatives of Minnow Films confirming the kill took place while filming the movieShooting Bigfoot.
  8. Photographs of the kill at San Antonio after Hank was killed. Preferably photos of Hank on the ground and then later photos of the body being moved.
  9. A full timeline by Rick stating which university the body was verified at, where the body was stored near Las Vegas, where it was moved to afterwards, and where it was in Washington state where the taxidermists worked on it.
  10. Names of the government official at the university who verified the body, the taxidermist who worked on the body, all of the scientists who studied the body and what exactly they did.
  11. Some sort of a statement from the US government confirming in some way that this is actually the body of a relict hominid.
New Rick Dyer statement released.

Here is a very interesting video that has just been released by Dyer. He deals with several lies that the skeptics have been saying about him. First of all, skeptics charge that there have been numerous offers of various experts including medical doctors to examine the body, but Rick turned them all down, which is suspicious. The truth is that no one has come forward to offer to verify the body on the behalf of the skeptics.
Rick also stated that his original investors are gone, and he has a new team of investors. In my opinion, there was only ever one original investor, and that was Hank Williams III, the country-punk musician. So apparently HWJ has sold out to new people. Who are the new investors? Who knows? First of all, there may only be one person. That is because if Rick has only one investor, he lies and refers to that person in the plural for unknown reasons. So just because Rick says there is more than one investor doesn’t necessarily mean it is so. It is not known who the new investor(s) is.
My reputation at stake. Supposedly my reputation is at stake on this Rick Dyer Bigfoot body. I have stated my hypothesis that Rick shot and killed Hank, and I feel that there is a possibility that he retained the body. These photos could indeed be of a real dead Bigfoot. It is important to note that there has never been any hard, solid scientific evidence that Rick shot Hank or retained the body or that this body is real.
It is all just a matter of opinion. People are wrong all the time, especially in this game. Suppose this does turn out to be a real dead Bigfoot. According the lunatic “destroyed reputation” theory, the 95% of the community who insisted this was a hoax will have their reputations ruined for all time.
When we finally reveal these Bigfoots as the real creatures that they are, the 99% of the journalistic and scientific community who have been laughing at us and insisting that there is no such thing as Bigfoot will have their reputations ruined forever.
See how this makes no sense? It’s a nonsensical argument. Anyone can make a hypothesis about any unknown based on the available evidence. Later as more facts are gathered, the hypothesis is either proven or rejected. If it rejected, those who believed in it simply reorder their beliefs in line with the new facts.
This is the only way to move through life, always changing and adjusting your beliefs as they are either proven correct or shown to be false. We make hypotheses all day long. All of us have all sorts of beliefs that may well be true or not true.
We make generalizations every minute of every day. If you could never make a generalization, you would probably never even be able to get out of bed, and no doubt you would die quickly.
Life is simply an endless round of hypothesis testing, analysis of data and arriving at conclusions. Beliefs are continuously adjusted as new facts come in and new conclusions are drawn. The human mind is adaptive, changing its points of view and opinions all the time. All scientists are wrong all the time. Scientists are always making hypotheses and always seeing them fail. All detectives are wrong all the time. They are always making hypotheses about crimes which endlessly prove to be wrong and need to be adjusted in light of new facts or theories.
The very notion that if a human being has a false opinion, makes a hypothesis that turns out to be correct, or is wrong in any way, shape or form that their reputation is then ruined for all time is simply insane and asinine and anyone who believes this is a first class idiot. We are wrong every single day, and that is the dance of life. Next time you think you are perfect, try walking on water.
Anyway I do not care about my reputation as I do not worry about being wrong, and I have been wrong many times in my reporting and views. This is basically a Jack Anderson style rumor blog anyway, so obviously a lot of things are not going to pan out.
Anyway, this is how I feel.

There is nothing wrong with being wrong!
Anyway, my enemies can all burn. That’s always been the way I roll.
My enemies and haters grow, legion-like, by the day. That’s great news. Anyway, a shout out to all my haters.

Many strange happenings around Hank’s dead body in storage. While Hank was stored at the first location, strange, odd, bizarre and unaccountable things kept happening in the vicinity of the body and to people who were around the body. Dyer and the scientists were unnerved by it all, and that is one of the reasons the body was moved. This adds to the bizarre theories about a paranormal component to the Bigfoots.
Body viewing at end of December. A number of TT members were somehow able to view the body in very late December around December 29, 2012, probably in Washington state. It is not known how they accessed the body.
Dyer planning international press conference on January 7, 2013.Rick plans to reveal MRI and CT scans of Hank along with 3D imaging and Hank’s full genome at the very least. Possibly even more than that may be in store for us. It will be very interesting at least to see what unfolds on this most interesting of dates, January 7, 2014. Either one of the greatest discoveries in human history or the greatest Bigfoot hoax of all time will hopefully be clarified.
New Dyer photo to be released. A new photo of Hank has been shown to members of Rick’s secret Bigfoot group. I cannot tell you what is in it, but it is most interesting. It was supposed to be released today, but it never happened. Hopefully it will be released in the near future.
So-called Dyer Hank photo from early 2012 shown to be fake.
This photo of Hank was supposedly distributed by Rick in early 2012, however, that is not true. Instead, this is all a lie and the photo is a fake distributed by the lunatic haters to make Rick look bad and confuse everyone.

More asinine nonsense and muddying of the waters from the execrable Dyer haters.
Apparently fake Bigfoot footage from Bradford, Pennsylvania. This is the location of some odd photographs that were taken by people coming back from a weekend Bigfoot festival. This new video has been released from the same location and is now on Youtube. My opinion is that this is clearly a fake with a man in a monkey suit. Feel free to weigh in.

More on the Alberta Habituation site. I have been writing about this site quite a bit lately. Refer to the previous report for background. The trapper who works the area has reportedly seen seven Bigfoots on his trapline over the past few years. As I said, this is one of the hottest habituation sites in North America. People who have gone in there alone report that they tend to get shadowed as soon as they get into the area. This experience is so disconcerting that they do not want to go in there alone anymore.
However, there are now trailcams all over the area. One problem with the cameras is that the Bigfoots seem to be purposely avoiding them, which seems odd. In addition, incredibly enough, the Bigfoots keep taking the camera and turning them around so they face the tree they are mounted on inside of pointing out into the forest. This way you get photos of tree bark and nothing more as the camera is rendered useless. How the Bigfoots have figured this out or why they are doing it is not known.
Aaron Arcand, one of the craziest people in Bigfootery, stole the area from a researcher that had been zealously guarding it for a long time. Arcand then turned around the took Todd Standing out to the area against the wishes of the initial researcher. Todd then proclaimed it was his area, in effect stealing it from the others. Stealing each others research areas, what all good Bigfoot researchers do!
Todd then took Les Stroud from Survivorman into the area over the summer where two episodes of the Discovery Channel were filmed over the summer. The trapper was utterly furious at all the activity around his trapline. Later Todd took both Dr. Jeff Meldrum and Dr. John Bindernagel into the area, probably in Fall 2012. I believe that Todd filmed a documentary in the area and that he later sold it to a TV station. Todd received an unknown sum for this movie, but I would say that selling that movie to TV was one of the smartest things Todd has ever done.
At one point, Todd saw a Bigfoot. This may be one of the only times he seen one as his prior photos and videos and nonsensical stories about Sylvanic were all fakes and lies from ultra-hoaxer Standing. Keep in mind that this area is not Sylvanic and anyway, and Sylvanic is probably a fake area that only exists in Todd’s con artist mind. Canadian news reports said that Todd would be taking Stroud to an area of British Colombia in between Banff and Kootenay National Parks, the location of the fake Sylvanic Valley.
That is not where Todd took Stroud. Instead, Todd took Stroud to his new Alberta research area. The location of the site is a closely kept secret.
Aaron Arcand either has a vivid imagination, is a pathological liar, is delusional or is some combination of the three. Some of his wilder claims:
  • All of his research was stolen.
  • Every time he goes out to any research spots, he always sees a Bigfoot.
  • On one occasion, he found a Bigfoot grave. The Bigfoots found out about this somehow, and when he went back again, the Bigfoots had moved the body and reburied it somewhere else.
  • Saw a hot looking Bigfoot babe near the dump at the Small Boys Camp. He named her Bo after Bo Derek. Apparently she was a real cutie.
  • Used digital recording glasses to videotape a Bigfoot, but the Bigfoot took exception to this, came over the Arcand and picked him up in the air, causing him to drop the glasses whereupon the footage was destroyed.
  • A Bigfoot picked him up one time and threw him a considerable distance.
Todd quickly figured out that Arcand was delusional and he dumped him like a hot potato and took over the research area for himself, cutting Arcand out of the loop. So Arcand showed Todd the site, and then Todd turned around and royally screwed Arcand.
Arcand was thrown out of the BFRO on the grounds of “being delusional.” He has also been banned from the Alberta Sasquatch website due to his endless aggressive and disruptive activity. Arcand has been banned from almost every Bigfoot forum on the web.
At some time in the course of Arcand’s association with the Manitoba site, Aaron threatened to set a forest fire and burn the whole research area to the ground. He was reported to Forestry authorities for making threats. He is an odd looking fellow who probably only has about two teeth left in his mouth.
Interesting reports on Bigfoots that resemble Rick Dyer’s purported Bigfoot body. David Claerr is a Bigfoot researcher from Texas who is intimately familiar with the Bigfoots of Texas. He told me that Hank’s coloration and appearance is in line with the Bigfoots that are reported in that part of Texas.
David Claerr:
Towards central Texas, there are more of human-looking ones with Caucasoid traits of lighter skin and hair coat. Up towards northeast TX there are more of the dark skinned, black and dark coated ones with a more simian appearance. They look a lot like Scott Carpenter’ photos. They are the ones with the more ancient African DNA, probably arriving thousands of years earlier than these guys. This seems to support Melba’s results in different haplogroups.
Photos, drawing and reports of Bigfoots that resemble Hank. There are many types of Bigfoots in the US. A famous case is of the Lake Worth Monster from central Texas in 1969. Up to 100 people witnessed this Bigfoot, including police officers and sheriff’s deputies. The full amazing story of the Lake Worth Monster, which was simply a Bigfoot, was written up by David Claerr here.

David also carefully worked up a strange photo of the Bigfoot and made an excellent drawing of it, which he refers to as “a mutant Scotsman.”

One of the finest and strangest Bigfoot photos I have ever seen is the mysterious Moyie Springs, Idaho photo taken some time in the mid-1970′s. Little is known about the photo other than the approximate date and location of the shot. This Bigfoot also has the “mutant Scotsman” appearance of the Lake Worth Monster and Hank.
This is one of my favorite all time Bigfoot photos and I have always thought it was real. The circumstances surrounding this bizarre photos are very mysterious.

Reports of three known Bigfoot skeletons in the US. A source told me that he knows of three Bigfoot skeletons in the US.
The first one is at a university anthropology department in Texas and is labeled American Indian. He has observed the bones and confirms that they are the bones of a Bigfoot and not an Indian. The problem is that once bones get labeled American Indian, everything becomes very sensitive due to some silly recently passed laws that give local Indians rights to just about any bones found near their tribal territories. This had made it very difficult to study Indian bones in the US in the past 20 years.
The second is a full skeleton that is located at an archeological dig in Illinois. This is a layered dig that goes quite a ways down into the ground. A skeleton was found at one point, excavated and presently remains at the site unveiled but still lying on ground a number of feet below the surface of the dig. The skeleton is approximately 10 feet tall and it is clearly a Bigfoot, not an Indian. Unfortunately, this skeleton is also labeled American Indian so it might be difficult to study also.
A third skeleton is located somewhere in Oklahoma on private property in a partially collapsed cave. The fact that it is on private property makes access difficult. An earth mover may be required to clear the collapsed cave entrance and interior. Ground penetrating radar may be useful in finding the skeleton which was reburied by humans when it was discovered ~40 years ago.
The source also received a report from a man who said he had seen a stuffed and mounted Bigfoot inside of a man’s home. The source thoroughly invested the claim of the taxidermied Bigfoot and believes it is probably true, but is not completely certain.
There have been a number of reports of these, especially in the Honobia region of Oklahoma where people have reported Bigfoot heads mounted like trophies on the walls of homes. It has been impossible to confirm these stories, but we may now have at least one taxidermied Bigfoot with the Rick Dyer story.
David Claerr on differences between human and Bigfoot skeletons.An excellent article by Claerr on how the Bigfoots differ structurally from us.
Man can identify Bigfoot bones by looking at them. A source, the same man who reported the skeletons above, reports that he has seen a number of Bigfoot skeletons and bones and can differentiate them from human bones on a variety of variables. First of all, they are larger than human bones. The proportions of the limbs are also different. In particular, the bone-ends are very different. Most have a coned cranium which is a dead giveaway in addition to the prominent browridge. They also have a rougher surface texture and a thicker bone wall than human bones. Also the prominences where the tendons attach to the bones are more robust.
Humans killing Bigfoots in self defense. I believe that Bigfoots have attacked humans at various times, and the humans have responded by shooting the Bigfoots dead. Surely this has occurred before.
Bigfoots are highly dangerous. I am now convinced that David Paulides theory that Bigfoots are dangerous may have some merit. Although most of the time they are docile and retiring, I believe that on rare occasions they become highly aggressive and attack and try to kill humans. Certainly this has occurred before.
Bigfoot females may be dangerous with juveniles. Female bears and other female mammals can become very aggressive towards humans if they feel that you are threatening their young. I believe that the rarely seen female Bigfoots (95% of sightings are of males) may become extremely aggressive if you think they are threatening their young. They may attack and attempt to kill a human under these circumstances. And I also believe that the juveniles may charge, attack and attempt to kill the human alongside the mother.
Always carry a gun when researching Bigfoots. At this point, I have heard enough solid evidence to convince me that these creatures are capable of being extremely dangerous, attacking humans, trying to kill them and probably even killing humans. In my opinion, any researcher who researches without a gun needs to have their head examined.
Great sites in Bigfoot history. Surely there are certain locales that will go down in Bigfoot history as some of the greatest and most famous sites in the history of Bigfooting. Ape Canyon, Mount St. Helens, he Siege of Honobia site, the Crittenden, Kentucky habituation site, Bluff Creek, Dyer’s San Antonio kill site, the Sierra Kills site, and we would certainly have to add the Alberta Habituation Site, wouldn’t we? Well of course we would.
What sort of evidence can we expect from a great Bigfoot site or habituation site. The famous Bigfoot sites have revealed a great deal of evidence. The evidence can include:
  • Footprints
  • Handprints
  • Photo evidence
  • Video evidence
  • Tree structures
  • Audio evidence of vocalizations
  • Scat
  • Hair
  • Blood
  • Saliva
  • Tissue
  • Parts of body(s)
  • Whole body(s)
Any combination of these various types of evidence may well be present at any famous Bigfoot site or great habituation site. Let’s hear it for great habituation sites!

Heading towards the tipping point with Bigfoot evidence.
 This is one reason that I am fairly certain that 2014 will be the year of Bigfoot discovery. Everyone talks about Rick Dyer, but this may well be the most famous year ever Dyer or no Dyer.
Human killing of Bigfoots seems to be increasing. I wrote a previous piece, much linked, which calculated that humans kill Bigfoots on the average of once every 4.5 years. However, in recent years, the kill rate seems to be increasing. It seems that in the past few years, the rate is more like 2 Bigfoots shot dead per year, correct?
How many Bigfoot bodies are out there? In the past few years, at any given time, there may well have been anywhere from 2-5 Bigfoot bodies or possible bodies floating about. Whew! That is quite a few Bigfoot bodies floating about!
Problems with Bigfoot body retention. Even if a Bigfoot is shot, that is no guarantee that the body(s) may be recovered. The Sierra Kills fiasco, in which two Bigfoot bodies were lost or disappeared somehow, is a prominent recent case. Typically, when a Bigfoot is killed, all Hell breaks and there is a huge fight for the ownership of the body. Lips must be sealed and only a select few people must be told, as the sooner the news gets out, the more likely the body has a tendency to vanish.
Even if the body(s) are retained by some party(s), the body(s) may simply be disappeared by the people who have them for a variety of reasons. Many Bigfoot killers fear prosecution for homicide for killing a hairy man. Hence evidence seems to vanish and bodies tend to disappear. Bodies may be left in the field by frightened Bigfoot killers, who then tell almost no one and never go back to the site. Other times, Bigfoot killers simply bury the Bigfoot body where it fell and try to keep the killing secret.
In quite a few cases, it seems that government authorities of various types arrive on the scene and confiscate the body, after which it is never heard from again. If Indians are involved at all, things get really nutty. Indians generally believe that Bigfoots are a sacred spirit. They are afraid to even talk about them, sort of like the name of God not being uttered by some of the religious.
If and when a Bigfoot is killed, Indians do not want to take the body forward and donate it to science. Instead they wish to take possession of it. Once they get the body, they quickly bury it at a secret spot deep in the woods. The killing and burial is then never discussed. The location of the grave is a closely guarded secret held close to the chest by a few Indians, who are receive serious threats if they divulge the location of the grave. A number of Bigfoot bodies seem to vanished at the hands of Indians.
What are Bigfoots’ reactions to humans taking the bodies of the Bigfoots that they kill? Clearly Bigfoots are upset when we kill or wound their loved ones. But I believe that they like to bury their dead and they become very angry when we haul the bodies away like body snatchers thereby preventing a proper burial. If parts are cut off a Bigfoot body, say a head and hands are removed and the body is left in the field, the Bigfoots probably get very angry over us leaving a the mutilated body of their loved ones in the field. I believe that Bigfoots like to give their dead a proper burial and prefer any dead Bigfoot bodies to be whole and not mutilated with missing parts.
Writers who riddle or write in code. Some of my favorite writers write in code or riddles, dropping clues here and there, often without coming and out and saying much outright. These writers are very interesting because part of the fun is reading is trying to solve the mystery of what exactly they are trying to tell us anyway.
These writers who tease us and play games with our minds are a source of endless aggravation and frustration, however these enigmatic men of letters keep us on our toes requiring us to use our powerful intuitive skills to piece together puzzles, solve mysteries, read between the lines and pay as much attention to what is not said as what is said.
They try our patience but there are pots of gold awaiting the diligent reader to puts the pieces of the puzzle together to finally reach the epiphany of a solution.
Of course I would never do that myself as that would be dishonest and not straightforward, and I always get right to the point and never leave anything to the imagination, but I very much enjoy reading these puzzling yet alluring authors.
2014 should be the year of the Sasquatch. This is looking to be quite possibly the biggest year ever in the history of the Bigfoot story. Everyone is talking about Rick Dyer, but it may not even matter whether the Dyer story is real or a hoax. I know they keep saying that every year, but I have a feeling that this year could be for real.
Rick Dyer releases photos of Hank.

A photo of Hank that was released by Rick Dyer. I feel there is some resemblance between this photo and the Musky Allen composite sketch.
This photo appeared on the webpage of a TV station in San Antonio, Texas. They then aired a short news segment on the story. So the KSAT Channel in San Antonio is the first media outlet to break the Hank story.
Here is a newly released photo of the full body of Hank. It looks massive.

Here is a screen capture of Hank’s body.

The general view in the Bigfoot community is that this is an obvious fake. A few folks are very excited. And another small group is taking a wait and see approach. One argument that new Hank photo does not look like the Hank in the Tent Video, the Hank in the Shooting Bigfoot still or the Hank in Musky Allen’s composite sketch. Well, this is an interesting argument, but I think there is a resemblance between this photo and the Allen composite.
My opinion is that I have no idea what is in those photos. I do not know if they look like fakes or not. However, this Hank photo does in some ways resemble the Musky Allen composite pretty well. So my take is either that is a photo of Hank the dead Bigfoot or it is a very well-done fake. It doesn’t matter if it’s a hoax anyway because if it is, it is the greatest Bigfoot hoax of all time, and that is a great story right there.
Dyer photos were first released on a San Antonio TV station. Here is a link to thevideo segment discussing Dyer’s photos. And here is a link to the original story in print at the station’s news site.
Smithsonian Museum worker gives opinion on new Hank photo. I have a source who works in the Smithsonian designing the models that are used in the displays there. He examined the new Dyer photo and promptly dismissed it as a fake. I admire his expertise, but he may well be wrong in this case. I really have no idea.
Tent Video Sasquatch and Shooting Bigfoot Sasquatch may have been two different creatures. According to sources close to Dyer, the Bigfoot in the Tent Video may be a different creature than the one that was shot dead in the Shooting Bigfoot movie. How they arrived at this conclusion is not known. However, the idea that Hank was a lone Bigfoot seems to be a bit odd, as we know that Bigfoots generally live in small family groups. If there was a small family group in the area, then the two videos may well have shown two different Bigfoots.
Rick Dyer will hold an international press conference on January 15 at which much more evidence will be released. The evidence includes CAT and MRI scans of Hank’s body, DNA sequencing of Hank’s DNA and 3-D modeling of Hank’s body.
Arguments about preservation of the body. Many are saying that the trailer has no cooling system so the body could not be preserved. However, Hank has been taxidermied and mounted by a taxidermist. Rick drove up to Washington state to retrieve the body from the taxidermist who had been working it. So there is no need to preserve it of course.
First photos of Hank have been sold to the media. The video released by Dyer the other day of the tourists looking at Hank included an audio segment of an MD who came to look at the body. This MD is a writer for a magazine in New York City. He took some photos of Hank, and these photos were sold to this magazine.
More Hank photos floating around. There are other photos of Hank available floating around the Internet as I write this. A friend of mine has a very detailed whole body photo of Hank, but I cannot see it.
Hank showed to 130 onlookers. When he was transporting Hank down to Las Vegas, Rick showed Hank to 130 onlookers. So now quite a few people have seen the photo. So the old Dyer skeptic argument about almost no one having seen the body is wrong.
Todd Standing documentary will be released in the Spring. Todd Standing’s documentary which was at least in part shot at a great habituation site in Alberta, Canada will be released on TV in the Spring. I have a feeling that think this documentary will be very good. Todd has sold the rights to a TV station, and I would say that that is the smartest thing that Todd has ever done. Standing may be a Machiavellian Dark Triad type, but he is a very, very smart man.
Alberta habituation site has tree structures. One of the things that drew John Bindernagel to that site is stories that there were tree structures there. John had seen a tree structure on Vancouver Island and he wanted to compare these tree structures in Alberta with the one on Vancouver. Although the story on the Net is that John wanted to check out a single tree structure, in my opinion, there are quite a few tree structures at this site.
Les Stroud was also at the Alberta habituation site with Todd Standing recently, probably this fall. One or two episodes of Survivorman were shot out there, and they should air in the Spring. I have a feeling that those episodes are going to be very good.
Alberta habituation site not accessible now. There is 4-5 feet of snow in the ground there, and you will not be able to get back in there until May. However, I believe that the fur trapper who runs traplines on that land lives there year round.
The Bigfoot awards. As you know, some TV stations are throwing around talk about $10 million rewards, $1 million rewards, etc. However the truth is that no one is going to get those huge awards in my opinion unless they have a great agent. Anyone else will get scammed. That is, those stations are just not going to pay out those huge awards unless you fight for it.
Bigfoot TV awards currently being given out. It is little known but some of these Hollywood outfits that are offering these huge awards have already been giving out some awards.
Though they are not in the $1-10 million range, I have a feeling that they have forked out one or more awards to one or more celebrities in our community. Instead of the seven figure range, I would say it was probably in the 6-figure range. That is, one of our well-known Bigfoot celebrities may well have won a large award from one of these Hollywood outlets, probably in the 6-figure range. The prize may well have been given to these person(s) for good evidence towards proving Bigfoot. However, I am not aware of exactly what evidence may have been used to win this prize.
Bigfoot is big money. I would say that Bigfootery is starting to become very profitable to some of our celebrity Bigfooters. Above I mentioned the possibility of an award in the 6-figure range for interesting evidence towards proving Bigfoot. However, I also believe that it is possible that a celebrity Bigfooter may have recently profited in the 7-figure range from Bigfootery. That’s money in them thar hills, folks!
Interesting story about a Bigfoot shot and killed on a US military base. This story appeared a while back on Bigfoot Forums. It was widely debated, but people who had military experience felt that the story rang very true. The story was told by someone who was at the base at the time. I am not sure where the base was, but it may have been in the Rust Belt region, possibly Ohio.
The soldiers were practicing at a target range, firing away with their guns. At one point, a Bigfoot appeared in the area, and the soldiers all flipped out and stopped firing.
Command was somehow notified. Command may have been aware of these creatures. An order was issued to the soldiers at the range to hunt down and kill the creature. The troops had a new target to shoot out. They fanned out into the area to try to kill the Bigfoot. At one point, the Bigfoot was lying flat on the ground (They do do this, by the way). And suddenly it jumped up (They also do that, lie flat and then jump up, dive down again and lie flat, etc.) As soon as the Bigfoot jumped out, the soldiers opened up on him. It was quickly killed.
A number of government authorities were notified, including in particular the US Fish and Wildlife service among other biologists. The USFWS officer knew full well what these creatures were. He said something along the lines of, “Ah, so you shot another one of these things, eh?” Then he said regarding their population dynamics, “Well, they are not as common as they used to be, but there are a lot more of them around than you might think.”
It is very interesting that he said that because that means that the USFWS has some knowledge of the Bigfoots’ population dynamics. This probably means that these things are being killed fairly regularly. The USFWS officer referred to the Bigfoot as an “illusory hominid.” What an odd choice of words.
Interestingly, one of my sources went to look for this thread on Bigfoot Forums, and the entire thread had been deleted by Bigfoot Forums staff.
Some Bigfooters may be under government surveillance. I have a feeling that some members of our community may be under government surveillance due to what we know about these creatures. This is because the governments in North America know full well what these things are and they want to monitor those of us few citizens who are aware these things exist and are trying to prove it. However, I have no evidence that I am under surveillance. Other major Bigfooters have told me that they think they might be being monitored. Surveillance methods may include wiretapping of phones, etc.
Rick Dyer takes possession of Hank. It was reported that yesterday, Rick Dyer took possession of Hank in Washington State, where the final touches of the body preservation process were completed, loaded into his trailer and drove it back to Las Vegas. By the time of this writing, the body is now in Las Vegas.
Rick Dyer's Hank tour trailer, ready to roll.
Rick Dyer’s Hank tour trailer, ready to roll.
Many more people view Hank and the viewings were recorded and uploaded to Youtube.

Above is an amazing video that Rick took somewhere on his journey, possibly inWashington state as there is snow on the ground. This time of year, the snow in Washington state’s populated areas is mostly in eastern Washington state. Rick is showing the body to some onlookers who are peeking into the back of the trailer and looking at it. The people seem to be mere onlookers and not associated with Rick in any way. Their reactions appear genuine and unscripted. Many are remarking in amazement upon viewing Hank’s body in the back of the trailer.
At the end of the video, a MD who flew in from New York City to see the body is audio-recorded voicing his amazement upon viewing Hank. The video of the physician is edited out to preserve his privacy as no doubt he is afraid of ridicule.
Team Tracker members flying into Las Vegas. As mentioned above, a physician reportedly flew in from New York to view Hank. In addition, I am told that some Team Tracker members are also flying into Vegas to view Hank from across the US. Others are flying all the way from the UK to look at the body. These folks obviously believe deeply that Hank is genuine. If he is not, they may have a civil suit case against Rick for fraud. Musky Allen is flying in from the Great Lakes area today. Apparently Musky thinks the body is real, otherwise why would he buy a plane ticket from the Rust Belt to Vegas.
After the Shot videos delayed again. Rick delayed the release of these videos until December 31, and now he has delayed them again until January 17.Word is that one of the two videos (there is After the Shot and another one) has sold only 28 copies so far. If Rick does not deliver the videos and does not refund the buyers’ money, he is going to have a lawsuit on his hands.
What is Hank? As you can see, the number of people who have seen Hank has now grown dramatically.
The video shows 10-20 ordinary citizens viewing the body. So what is in the back of the truck? Hank is either a dead Bigfoot or an expertly constructed fake. If it is a fake, it has fake autopsy incisions in it. In addition, in the video, Rick pulls out some of the hair and lights it on fire. It gives off a strong odor. Why would the fake be made out of some weird material that stinks and stinks even worse when you light it up? It doesn’t seem to make sense.
Dyer tour with Hank. As far as I can tell, the tour starts sometime in the middle of January and it is still on. He is going to go on tour with something – either a real dead Bigfoot or an expertly constructed fake. If it’s a fake, the viewers probably do not have a lawsuit case against Rick. Rick is selling them tickets to see a dead Bigfoot, and would think that viewers who view a fake would have a fraud case against Rick in court. However, plaintiffs could simply argue (and the judge would surely agree) that as there is no such thing as Bigfoot, there is no fraud and the viewers were simply gullible fools who have no protected class status.
Les Stroud Survivorman Bigfoot documentary on the Discoverychannel will appear soon. Les Stroud is the well known star of theSurvivorman show. He is an expert survivalist who can live in the woods for considerable periods of time. In my opinion, this show will also feature Todd Standing in addition to Stroud. I also believe that at least some of this show was shot at Standing’s habituation site in Alberta mentioned below.
New information on Dr. Jeff Meldrum and Dr. John Bindernagel Bigfoot encounter in Alberta, Canada. I asked Meldrum to comment on this and I have not received any response. I understand that Meldrum hassigned an NDA regarding his experience during the Alberta outing.
However, I can now report that this habituation spot is one that is favored by a man named Aaron Arcand. He considers it to be his area, but it’s actually crown land.
Also the land may or may not be associated with a fur trapper who has a trapline in the area (you can run traplines on Crown Land). Arcand stole this site from another man who I will not name who had regarded it as his secret spot for some time.
I can also now report that Arcand took Todd Standing to this area recently. If Todd went there, no doubt he had one or more encounters because it is literally not possible to stay in this zone for any time and not have an encounter. So the following persons have been to this area:
  1.  A fur trapper
  2. An unnamed researcher
  3. Aaron Arcand
  4. Todd Standing
  5. Les Stroud
  6. Jeff Meldrum
  7. John Bindernagel
Since it is nearly impossible to spend any time at this site and not have an encounter, I assume that all of the men listed above have had Bigfoot encounters at this site. I know for a fact that at least the fur trapper, the researcher, Arcand and Meldrum have had encounters there at any rate.
I am not sure if I can tell you where in Alberta the site is located or even give you a general location. This is surely one of the hottest habituation sites in North America right now though.
Todd Standing documentary in the works. Standing is working on a Bigfoot documentary that may be released in the coming year. In my opinion, this documentary should be very good and I think will have excellent Bigfoot footage, evidence and documentation of some type in it. It is amazing that I am actually looking forward to something from Standing, but I am. I am not sure if any footage from the Alberta habituation site will be included in the doc.
Jeff Meldrum, musician. Here is Meldrum singing, Homebrew. I assume this is our very own Jeff the Bigfooter, no?

Amazing. I wonder how many Bigfooters have seen this video? As you can see, Aaron Arcand also plays on this song, so it appears that Meldrum and Arcand know each other, adding weight to my theory that Meldrum went to Arcand’s spot in Alberta.
Bigfoot appears on Bing Maps. Bing Maps is a Google Earth type application that runs on the Satanic Microsoft Bing search engine.
Apparent Bigfoot on Bing Maps. That actually does look like a Bigfoot to me. That is what they look like.
Apparent Bigfoot on Bing Maps. That actually does look like a Bigfoot to me. That is what they look like.
Here is the report, which also included photos.
I was zooming in on a small lake 8 miles south of Aurora, Minnesota named Hautala Lake when I noticed something on the photo. There looks like something is crossing the road (#41 Palo Rd) in a wooded area just north of the lake. I’ve attached a screen shot picture #1. At first glance I thought it was a man, but about 1/10 mile east of the figure is a car going east on the same road.
The second picture is the car screenshot at the same size. Whatever that thing is it is big. If you compare the car and the figure, the figure appears as tall as the car is long! Even assuming the car is a compact, that means that the figure is over 12ft tall !! Remember these are not my pictures. Anyone can go on Bing Maps and zoom in on this. If you use a smart phone, you can see the figure clearer than on a computer. Search for Aurora MN. Then scroll about 8 miles south of Aurora on Hwy 99 to Palo Rd (#41) Look about .45 miles west on Palo Rd., and you can see it for yourself.
Bigfoot encounter report from Manitoba, Canada. Interesting report that a Canadian recently sent to me. Make of it what you will.
I’d like to tell you a story about my home town in middle northern Manitoba Canada. Manitoba, Canada is home to what I believe to be a creature known as Bigfoot. Manitoba is not known to be a Bigfoot hotspot but it is.
Manitoba is very sparsely populated, with 70% of the people living in the capital city of Winnipeg.
I come from a place known as Waterhen, Manitoba. Right now it and the surrounding area has a population of around 400. Waterhen is the end of the line basically. One the left of Waterhen is a lake, and on the right is bog and swamp that goes for 100km’s. Forward, there are 0 humans for about 400 km’s. Even where a there are humans, from that point on, they are very sparse. The entire area north of Waterhen is thick forest, lakes and shallow streams that connect them all.
My uncle was around 55 years old, a bricklayer from Winnipeg who was out visiting family in Waterhen which is about a 300 km drive.
To get to Winnipeg you head right from Waterhen down a 100 km gravel road where absolutely no one lives and there is no cell phone service. This was a typical night for him and his daughter who was attending high school at the time. It was fall and dark outside so likely it was around 10 pm.
They were about 60 out of the 100 km down this road when they saw something up ahead on the side of the road. It was standing on two feet, it was over 6 feet tall, and my uncle said and dark. My uncle had lived in Waterhen until he was 30 and had hunted and been in the wilderness his entire life. He has seen and hunted countless bear, moose, elk, deer, and bison. He said that this was something different.
It ran across the road away from them quicker than any animal could on two legs, then it got to the edge of the bush and turned around and ran back across the road and into the forest.
My cousin, his daughter, reported the same thing. She would have been about 16 years old at the time. She was a high school student. More of a city girl, but she said she knows what she saw. My uncle is not a person to lie and my cousin isn’t either. They never told anyone but my family, and they said as hard as they tried to forget about it, they couldn’t. Two people, one old and one young, saw the exact same things. Again, I say, they are not the sort of people to make up stories like this. They have never made up anything like this before or again.
My other uncle who is a brother to the first person in the story was about 40 years old at the time of this sighting. He is 70 now. He also was a hunter and grew up in a poor family, so going out into the bush and getting meat was all he knew when he was younger. He told me that one time he was out hunting like any other. It was getting to be dark.
He had a 30-06 rifle with him, which is a bigger caliber gun. He moose-calls himself so he knows what they sound like. He said that while he was hunting, he heard a noise like “Oooooogh”. A grunt of sorts.
He said he felt powerless. Normally with a high powered rifle you feel like you can take down anything. He said this particular grunt was different from any animal he had ever heard and it scared him.
Another time that same uncle was out hunting in the forest around the same area that my first uncle in the first story saw the Bigfoot run across the road. They were walking in the bush when all of a sudden something big and hairy stood up and ran away in front of them. He said he knows that it had to be a Sasquatch. It was big, dark and running like a man on two legs. He said the whole experience happened very quickly.
I know I am only a typist of words, but I have no reason to lie and neither do my uncles or my cousin. These people have lived out in the bush their entire lives. Again these stories take place somewhere where there are no cattle, no houses, no pets, and no people for at least 50 kms. Pitch black, no street lights, nothing.
Interesting news – Jeff Meldrum reportedly had his first Bigfoot encounter in Canada earlier this year. The rumor is that John Bindernagel was with him on this trip. The location is somewhere in Alberta, Canada, and it is said to be one of the hottest research spots in North America right now. The news I got said that Meldrum had at the very least one Class B encounter and possibly more than one. She also stated that it was at the very least a Class B encounter, and it may in fact have been a Class A encounter.
Although Meldrum has not spoken about it publicly, he has definitely spoken about it privately. I understand that he is under some sort of an NDA about this incident though, so he may not talk about it much. The encounter must have occurred earlier this year because that area is now under many feet of snow, and it’s colder than a meat locker up there. Specifically, I believe the incident may have occurred in the fall. The source also told me that the full story of their encounter(s) would go public in a while anyway. There is apparently a lot more to this story, and I am digging into it right now.
This would apparently be Meldrum’s second Bigfoot encounter. His first was in the Siskiyou Mountains of Northern California when a Bigfoot repeatedly walked through their camp late at night. The Bigfoot apparently put its hand on Meldrum’s tent, and Meldrum could see the outline of its hand.
I really do like Jeff Meldrum a lot, even he has some detractors, or worse – enemies – in the community for sure. To be more specific, there are those in the community who absolutely despise him. Having spoken to him on the phone, I do think that Meldrum is a good man though. He comes across as very sane and very warm. He is amiable and even charming, which is interesting for a scientist as a lot of these fellows are pretty cold fish. Jeff is like your best friend.
I also felt that he was very careful in all of his statements to me. It seemed he was hedging himself like a true scientist should. He does has a public image to manage, and he doesn’t like things that mess up his media persona. After a bit of time in front of the TV camera, he is turning into a bit of an “actor type,” but that goes with the territory, and he plays the actor role well. He has a very interesting personality and mind, and that is clear if you watch him on TV.
I also like John Bindernagel a lot. He has a very good heart, and that comes through if you see his speeches or listen to his shows.
John Green is also a great guy, though sadly he is dying of prostate cancer.
I actually like all of these academic types. They are some of the finest people in our field.
Bigfootery is so sleazy that it tends to taint if not ruin the best of human beings due to the nature of the game – a race to the bottom where the biggest sleazeball wins and the nice guys are all left mugged, holding the bag and wondering what hit them. It’s nice to see that the academic types have not been dragged down by the “Bigfoot undertow.”
Bow hunting Bigfoot in Idaho. I actually like this video a lot, and it has at least one feature in it that hoaxers never seem to get right – actually they do not even try to replicate this feature. I won’t mention it, but the Facebook Find Bigfoot guys used to talk about it a lot. There is not a whole lot to see here, but I could not help notice that when it walked away, it looked a lot like some of those Bigfoots walking in the forest in the Erickson Project video. The general feeling out there is that this is a hoax, but I say not so fast now.

Mississippi skunk ape video. This is an extremely interesting video shot near Tupelo, Mississippi. The Bigfoot is apparently grubbing a rotten log and eating bugs (maybe grubs) out of the log. We are apparently looking at it from the back end as it grubs the log. There are at least four features about this Bigfoot that hoaxers never get right (they never even try to replicate these features), and that is why I think this is real. From the rear this looks like a lot of Bigfoot videos – the Poland video of the Bigfoots in the rocks, the end of the Patty video when we see her from behind, the Georgia Bigfoot video when the boy sees the Bigfoot. This one is also being called a hoax, but I doubt if it is.

Mass Bigfoot sighting in British Colombia recently. One of the largest mass sightings in history occurred in BC recently. 26 people, all men, reportedly saw a Bigfoot at a location that I believe is called Wheeler Ridge. I believe they were all loggers or forest workers. I do not think there is video available. I am looking into this right now.
Rick Dyer story. Apparently Dyer is still going to reveal his Bigfoot to the world on or about December 31, 2013. He has scheduled a pay per view video onYoutube, but there is no date on it yet.
Rick Dyer’s home broken into by haters. Haters apparently broke into Dyer’s apartment and completely trashed the place. Apparently either these folks or other haters were also caught stalking Rick and his wife. This is why Rick moved out of his apartment very quickly afterwards. This is also the reason why Rick issued his “Quitting Bigfootery” video that everyone took to be an acknowledgement of a hoax. This incident freaked him out and made him want to step back from the scene to say the least.
Man invades Dyer’s apartment, fight ensues. A hater apparently invaded Rick’s apartment some time back. Rick was home at the time and confronted him. A fistfight then ensued. I do not any more have details on this incident. As you can see, Rick’s haters have been getting pretty out of control.
Frank Cali quits Team Tracker, says he is spilling the beans. Cali quit and reportedly spilled the beans on Rick, calling the whole Dyer affair a great big hoax. However, he offered no evidence to prove this. Frank and Rick had had a huge falling out a little while beforehand, and that is what spurred this incident. Frank’s story has changed over and over and does not seem to make sense.
Frank Cali and Craig Phillips never saw Dyer’s Bigfoot. But they both lied and said they did. Phillips even made a video detailing his viewing, which fooled some people who stated that it seemed very credible.Well, it wasn’t. Remember how his eyes never looked at the camera and always looked down? There you go. Why did these men lie and say they say a Bigfoot that they never saw? Rick states that both men desperately wanted to see the Bigfoot, so Rick said they could make videos saying they saw it even though they never did. Sleazy, huh? Well, Rick Dyer is the king of sleaze, you know?
Dyer makes fake video claiming that the Men In Black stole his Bigfoot. Apparently this was all another gigantic hoax “to fool the haters.” A few people were kicked out of Team Tracker due to this video. More of Rick’s sleazy hoaxing and nonsense. Whether or not Rick actually shot a Bigfoot, and especially whether or not he has possession of one, Rick has definitely been hoaxing and lying like crazy all through this Dead Bigfoot affair.
Really nothing new on the Dyer front. Some time has passed since I last wrote about Dyer, but the main thing you need to know is that there really is nothing new to report here. In the interim, no new evidence has been offered up to prove that his story is true. On the other hand, his detractors have not yet proven the case is a hoax either. So there it lies, in stasis. We can’t prove it’s true, and we can’t prove it’s false. And there you have it.
Date fast approaching for Dyer’s reveal. Dyer was originally going to reveal on December 15, but after the break-in, he changed his mind and postponed it indefinitely. Later he said the reveal would happen on December 31.
Melba Ketchum, teen book author. From the comments section of Over the Line, Smokey, a hardcore Ketchum-hating blog.
December 15, 2013 at 2:57
Melanie F Reed is actually “The Ketchum” and I have some information on what the Ketchum lady is up to these days. She is starting or has started a newpublishing company.
Her new alias/name is Melanie F. Reed. She will be writing books and publishing more-  but with an all new identity. She is going to great lengths to make “Melanie” an entirely new person so people don’t make the connection back to “Melba Ketchum.” A new saga begins (or, according to Ketchum, The Lost Saga). Supposedly the book comes out in December…Anyone seen it yet? Good times-  good times. Hope y’all can get down to the bottom of all this…more to come I am sure.
The site is here. The webpage is horribly done, so that right there is a clue that this may indeed be one of Melba’s webpages, as her sites are always horrific for some odd reason (Won’t pay for a web designer?). Looking around a bit, we can see that Melba is writing a 3-part teen book series called The Lost Saga. The first book in the series is called Strange World, and it is billed as a supernatural teen fantasy.
From the site, a book description:
Gracie McKay felt both excited and sad. Her family was trading its Manhattan highrise apartment for the sprawling suburbs of Seattle, Washington. Little did she know that as a shy girl soon to be 16, she was about to embark on a supernatural journey that would change her life forever–and lead her headlong into her destiny—a destiny intertwined with an unknown, unseen world.
Very disappointing Bigfoot series out of Channel 4 in the UK. This series, The Bigfoot Files, was billed as the greatest thing since sliced bread by Bigfooters for some time before it aired. Sadly, it was a massive bomb. It featured Dr. Bryan Sykes, who is admittedly a world class geneticist. The purpose of the series was apparently to use Sykes to prove conclusively, once and for all, that there is no such thing to the Bigfoot, Yeti or Almas legends. The show achieved its aims very well.
The first show dealt with the Yeti in the Himalayas. Although no Yeti was found, what was found was that at least some Yeti samples pointed to a brand new bear completely unknown to science (So much for no new large mammals being discovered, eh skeptards?) Most of the hairs were duds, but a few of the samples did match to a bone from an extinct polar bear from 40,000 years ago. This was at the time of the original brown bear (grizzly bear) – polar bear split.
The polar bear is a new species. It split off from the brown bear ~40,000 YBP. So this bear is really a sort of a brown bear-polar bear cross. Polar bears and grizzly bears are very closely related, and in the wild, they can actually interbreed. Somehow this early polar bear/brown bear got stranded up in the Himalayas (possibly in the Ice Age with the retreating glaciers). It lives at a very high altitude where there is snow and ice much of the year, so it is adapted to a polar bear-like environment.
The show also tried to prove that Yeti tracks are really just bear tracks that have partly melted or have been stepped in twice by the bear. This is transparently false, as Yeti tracks look nothing like bear tracks. Skeptics have been saying this about Bigfoot tracks for a long time (They are really just bear tracks that have been stepped in twice), and we shot that argument full of holes way back when.
The discovery of a brand new bear unknown to science is indeed startling news!
But the idea that the Yeti = weird polar bear does not seem to be true. The natives say that there are several different kinds of Yeti. Yeti after all just meansferocious thing or fierce thing in Tibetan. One of the Yetis is indeed said to be a very large bear. There are references to this huge Yeti-bear in Tibetan writings going back centuries.
However, natives are adamant that there is another Yeti that is some sort of a primitive relative hominid. Josh Gates recently cast some excellent footprints in Bhutan. Jeff Meldrum looked at the prints and decided that they were indeed genuine and appeared to be of a hominid. In addition, Dr. Melba Ketchum tested some purported Yeti hair, also from Gates, on a quick and dirty male/female peaks genetic test. The test came out preliminarily that Yetis were relict hominids related to Bigfoots but not the same species.
I am not very familiar with Yeti sightings, and I will have to go back over the historical record again. However, I believe that at least one sighting observed a group of Yeti hominids over a period of 2 hours or more. The Yeti hominid is said to live at a somewhat lower elevation that the Yeti Polar Bear does.
I still believe that there is an unknown hominid in the Himalayas.
The second episode involved Bigfoots in North America. Sykes received ~30 Bigfoot samples from North America but only revealed the results for eight of them. All eight were said to be known animals. A Derek Randles sample from eight feet up in a blueberry bush was said to be a canine. Tell me how a dog gets eight feet up a blueberry bush? Why all of these samples came back as known animals is beyond me. Could Sykes not have examined the hairs via a hair expert to quickly weed out the horses, dogs, opossums and whatnot? I do not understand why this was not done.
Justin Smeja’s sample from the Sierra Kills was tested and came back “black bear.” It has tested “black bear” now repeatedly – this is the fourth time it got this result. The producer challenged Justin and implied that he was making up the whole story, and Justin got angry, defensive and almost started crying. You really had to feel sorry for him.
The episode ended with the producer and Sykes in a philosophical conversation about how the Bigfoot phenomenon is obviously just Americans imagining things, and then went off into an abstract discussion of the human need to believe in monsters or beasts as some sort of  Jungian unconscious archetype common to the human race, possibly going back to our Cave Man days or our time on the African Savannah. Perhaps the recurring bogeyman theme is a leftover trauma from our genocidal wars with the Neandertals.
In other words, put a fork in the Bigfoot myth, it’s done for all time now.
Moving right along…
The final show dealt with Zana, the purported Almas in Abkhazia.She was supposedly captured in the 1870′s by residents of a small village in this remote mountain region. She was very wild at first but was eventually tamed. She never learned language, and it was clear that she was not a Homo Sapiens sapiens in the same sense that we are. The men used to get her drunk and bet each other to have sex with her, and several offspring were produced in this rather sleazy fashion. The offspring also looked very odd and had some characteristics that were simply not human. One of her sons, Kwit, could reportedly pick up a chair with his teeth!
The show gathered together some of Zana’s descendants, most of whom now just look like normal humans. Genetic testing on her bones revealed that Zana was 100% Sub-Saharan African. In other words, she was a Black woman!
Well, what is a Black woman doing running around in the forests of the Caucasus completely wild and living off the land, sleeping the open, lacking in all language and unable to learn language either? How is it that that a Black woman is completely covered in hair from head to toe? Because most Black people look like creatures from the Planet of the Apes, right? How is it that a Black woman is extremely strong, with strength far beyond that of a human? How is that the offspring of a Black woman and a White man (a mulatto) looks extremely primitive and is so strong that he can pick up chairs with his teeth? Most mulattos can do that, right?
On further examination, Sykes did note that Zana’s skull had certain features that were outside the realm of Homo Sapiens sapiens and were suggestive of possibly a more ancient or relict form of Homo. Sykes said that maybe Zana went back not to the Out of Africa people from 70,000 YBP from whom we all derive but actually to an earlier wave of Homo moving out of Africa. In other words, she was possibly a relict hominid. Exactly! What we have been saying all along.
So to wrap it all up, Yetis are really Polar Bears, Bigfoots are all hoaxes, lies or hallucinations, and Almastys are hair covered Black folks who run around wild in the remotest Caucasus.
Three legends killed with one stone, er, one show.
The truth is that most British people simply do not believe in any of this relict hominid stuff. They probably do not have relict hominids in their land, so to them, these creatures simply do not exist. British people who come to my site are far more likely to be Bigfoot skeptics than Americans are. They think we Americans are hillbilly morons for believing in these Bigfoot boogeymen.
You gotta love those pommies!
All in all, this show was an extreme disappointment. Either Sykes himself does not believe that any of these things exist, and that was what he set out to prove, or Sykes was used by the producers to further their skeptical view.
