Is the legend of Bigfoot truly dead?
According to KSAT-TV, self-proclaimed Bigfoot hunter Rick Dyer claimed that he is ready to display the body of one of the creatures. He claimed he killed it in 2012 in San Antonio, Texas.
"I have been worried for so long. I have been put off for so long, and finally we went up to Washington (state) 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."
Dyer, who has a previous history with Bigfoot-related hoaxes, said he plans to hold a news conference to reveal the full body along with the test results.
"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."
Dyer plans to take the body on tour in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
