Researcher: Bigfoot is just a rubber gorilla suit

Posted Aug 19, 2008 by Chris V. Thangham
A researcher from Squatchdetective.com analyzed the Bigfoot evidence and reveals that it is just a plain rubber gorilla outfit.
Earlier Vinay Chand reported that Bigfoot was 96 percent from an opossum based on a DNA analysis performed by Curt Nelson, a scientist at the University of Minnesota. Now further study reveals it is just a rubber suit not the mythical “Bigfoot” creature.
Steve Kulls, executive director of squatchdetective.com and also the host of Squatchdetective radio made this announcement in a post at the site run by Bigfoot researcher Tom Biscardi. The two researchers were given the body of the Bigfoot for an undisclosed sum by Matt Whitton, a Police Officer and Rick Dyer, a Corrections Officer.
Matt Whitton and Rick Dyer also had a press conference in California last Friday and were very confident about their find. Whitton said at the conference:
"Everyone who has talked down to us is going to eat their words,"
But the scientists and the researchers wanted more analysis and testing performed before concluding it as the real Bigfoot.
Steve Kulls and Tom Biscardi thawed the frozen body first. They burnt a hair sample and found that it melted into a ball, not the expected response of a typical hair according to Kulls.
They speeded up the thawing process and found a small head with an unusually hollow section in it. Further thawing exposed the feet of the animal and were found to be made of rubber.
In the end the frozen body was just a stuffed animal in a rubber gorilla outfit.
AP tried to contact Whitton and Dyer but both didn’t respond. But already one of the con men is getting punished, Whitton’s Police Chief Jeff Turner in Clayton County, Georgia is preparing the paperwork to fire him.
Jeff Turner told AP:
"Once he perpetrated a fraud, that goes into his credibility and integrity…He has violated the duty of a police officer."
I hope Biscardi gets his money back from these two cheaters. The pair made everyone in the world to follow this story only to find it in the end is a hoax after all.
