Okay, so this is probably going to turn out to be a hoax.
Yes, the original picture of the dead animal in the freezer looked slightly convincing…
But after you take a look at this bigfoot costume…
You can see there are some obvious similarities.
In any event, here’s more about the news conference…
PALO ALTO, Calif. â€” Supposedly, Bigfoot lives in North Georgia, and several of his relatives are still there. At least thatâ€™s what a pair of Georgia outdoorsmen and a California â€œBigfoot expertâ€ continue to claim.
But if they have definitive evidence to prove it, it wasnâ€™t presented at a press conference here Friday where they had assured the world theyâ€™d make believers out of everyone.
A second round of DNA testing on the remains of a 7-foot-7, 500 pound man-ape they allege to have stumbled upon while hiking in North Georgia is still being completed, they said.
Of three samples in a preliminary DNA test, one came back inconclusive, one contained traces of human DNA and one had traces of opossum DNA â€” probably from something the creature ate, they said.
They didnâ€™t produce a body – thatâ€™s in a hidden location, they said. They wonâ€™t say where they found the creature and saw others. They wonâ€™t let anyone but their own hand-picked scientists examine the body, and none were present on Friday.
So…unless there’s some shocking new discoveries, this will most likely be the last bigfoot post you’ll see on here for a while. I know you’re all highly disappointed to hear that. ;-)
