Rick Dyer has long been a self-proclaimed professional Bigfoot hunter. In 2012, Dyer gained national attention after claiming that he had shot and killed one of the elusive creatures in San Antonio. He even filmed a documentary Shooting Bigfoot, where he gave all of the details on how he found, shot, and killed Bigfoot.
The documentary failed to convince skeptics, however Dyer is determined to prove that Bigfoot is, in fact, real. Dyer released pictures of the creature - ones that he says he just recently gained back into his possession.
"I have been worried for so long. I have been put off for so long, and finally we went up to Washington and we got the body," Dyer said. "Every test that you can possibly imagine was performed on this body -- from DNA tests to 3D optical scans to body scans. It is the real deal. It's Bigfoot and Bigfoot's here, and I shot it and now I'm proving it to the world."
Since reclaiming the body, Dyer has been letting a select group of people see the creature in person while he records their reactions. "We wanted to get people's reactions, make them believers, and we did it to over a 130 people," Dyer said. "We definitely made them believers."
Dyer plans on touring the United States, Canada and Mexico with the body, to prove to skeptics that he was able to find and kill one of the most intriguing creatures of all time. "Bigfoot is not a tooth fairy -- Bigfoot is real," Dyer said. "The most important thing to me is being vindicated, letting people know that I am the best Bigfoot tracker in the world and it's not just me saying it."
