Bigfoot. I know, it's hard to believe that people are still inventing Bigfoot hoaxes of all things! However, I guess when you run a business that does Bigfoot tours, it could be a smart financial decision. This hardly needs any debunking, but this story is being covered by actual news sources.

CNN

NY Times

At least the NY Times story adds a little skeptical sarcasm:
"One photograph provided to the news media showed what resembled a gorilla — or maybe an old sheepskin rug — lying twisted in a freezer, with a dollop of intestines protruding from its belly."

So the rundown: Some guys in Georgia have found a real, dead Bigfoot! However, no one is allowed to see it. Only this supposed "Bigfoot expert" who had been trying for years to prove its existence is allowed to confirm it's real. He says "yup, it's real!" Of course they can't say specifically where this was found because they want to protect the living Bigfeet in that area. Makes sense. And they will provide further photographs and "DNA evidence." No word on who is going to analyze the DNA. And the only photograph provided thus far (mentioned above) looks pretty fake.

The guy who found the Bigfoot makes money giving Bigfoot tours. The "expert" who confirmed it is CEO of Searching for Bigfoot.

It's hard to imagine even the Scooby Doo gang would waste their time with this one.

And he'd have gotten away with it too if it weren't for those meddling kids!

I put my two cents in on this late last night if you care to take a gander
