'10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty' Judges Skeptical of Hunter's New Claims

'10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty' Judges Skeptical of Hunter's New Claims By Robert Chan

One of the judges from Spike's new "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty" calls Rick Dyer's assertion that he shot and killed a Sasquatch last year "completely worthless."

"Dude, I'm not going to take your word [for] it or your crappy picture. Show us real data," says Todd Disotell, a professor of anthropology at New York University who also runs NYU's Molecular Anthropology Laboratory.

Of course, Dyer's case is probably hurt by the fact that he was responsible for a Bigfoot hoax back in 2008, not to mention that he was a used car salesman before that and plans to go on tour with the now-stuffed body (which he says he shot in Washington, not San Antonio, as originally reported). "The second profit pops into science, science goes squiggly," concluded Disotell. "It's strange that he chose to have it taxidermied rather than have better-preserved live samples sent for testing," said Natalia Reagan, a primatologist who co-judges "Bounty" with Disotell and actor Dean Cain.

I say give him the prize money. At least he showed more proof than Obama ever did for Bin-Laden.

Just curious . . . do you believe Bin Laden is waiting to pop up like a Jack-in-the-Box?

Sounds like you think that the SEALs lied about the death of Bin-Laden?

Odds are great that there will never be any real proof of the death of either bigfoot or osama

The “shooter claims hes going to open a museum to display the body...

this should take what... five years?

Well I read Matt Bissonnettes book “No easy day” and he says the guy he shot looked nothing like OBL. And even if it was OBL, isn’t bringing a sense of closure to the families of the 911 victims more important than upsetting terrorists? That was the reason given by the Kenyan for not showing a photo of Bin-Ladens body “We don’t want to upset the radicals and put our troops in harms way” and then they went and downed a helicopter killing Seals ANYWAY which too me seems very suspicious so soon afterwards. And just why was OBL buried so quickly at sea “In accordance with Islamic law”? Excuse me? Islamic law? That POS should have been fed to pigs then had their waste flushed down the toilet to hell where he belongs. What we got here is a sitting US President bowing yet again to terrorism.

I think the fact that they were set up to be murdered speaks for itself.

Dead SEALS tell no tales.

Consider that the SEALs that killed Ben-Laden are all still with us (alive and well), I don’t see your point.

You’ll never see it. You might hear every excuse in the book though sort of like the guy who’s promised to pay you every Friday for the last year but always seems to get his paycheck, cash it, then disappear only to reappear at work with a 2 day hangover on Monday.

Honestly, any jackass can provide a blurred picture as “proof” of just about anything. Preserve the body, DNA analysis, scientifically establish the subject...okay, great. Give him the money. Without that there is no “proof.” Even with there may be some squabbling and equivocation but them’s the breaks.

All I know is that, if I were making the call, and had that opportunity, Bin Laden would have been captured alive, and sent to the most secret hidey hole that our government had, to be interrogated forever, while we let the rest of the world and all his comrades think he was dead.

The known facts don’t seem to rule out that possibility, so who knows?

It’s the same cock and bull scam as the chupacabra stories, a DNA analysis is never produced and all photos are blurry and grainy. You really have to work hard to produce poor quality images as bad as the usual “evidence”.

The picture I saw looked like one of the nasty germs or snot in one of the cold commercials.

Bin Laden was dead long before Obama killed him.

The TRUE Magazine link leads to an article by Ivan Sanderson, who later (in the 70s I believe) wrote a book titled Abominable Snowmen; Legend Come To Life. A good read, lots of evidence presented.

Conclusion: It’s real, it’s rare, it’s not ape nor is it human. And it’s smart enough to try to avoid us whenever possible. My money is on Gigantopithecus having survived instead of going extinct as did the Neanderthals.

When you find the source for your made up claim that the SEALS who killed Osama have been murdered, you be sure and post that, OK?

By the way, did they also track down and murder the U.S.Army Special Operations men who were on the raid?

Look, you posted something that isn’t accurate, the SEALS who killed Osama have not been hunted down and murdered, nor have the Army Special Ops with them.

I read I T Sanderson’s books back in the mid 1960s. He wrote lots of articles for various magazines at that time.
