It's a story that's gone viral with Spokane connections. A Texas man claimed he shot and killed Bigfoot, and has driven the body around the country charging people $10 to see it. A Spokane man is refuting those claims, because he built the Bigfoot prop the man is using.
"Step right up...they are going to see Bigfoot, and I am going to tell you it is a real Bigfoot," Rick Dyer told KSAT-TV in San Antonio outside of his trailer supposedly holding the beast in January.
Rick Dyer has claimed he shot and killed Bigfoot for a year and a half. In January, he was offering the public a chance to see the body for themselves.
"Come in and take a peak and listen to my story and see my evidence first-hand and you can make up your own mind," Dyer said.
According to multiple media reports, Dyer admitted last week the Bigfoot body was fake. Now, for the first time, Spokane artist Chris Russell can talk about it.
"I gave him what he asked for. He called and paid for it, and we put it on the board and did it, we made his body," Russell said.
