Bigfoot Hoax

Right now a couple of guys in Georgia are enjoying their 15 minutes of fame, claiming they have a genuine north Georgia bigfoot in a freezer. Fox News picked it up this morning (video here). There's supposed to be a Friday press conference in Palo Alto California (of all places) where they claim DNA and other proof will be revealed. As I said before, I'm not buying it. I predict the body will disappear, or they'll admit to a publicity stunt. Let's see what happens by Friday.

Update: I just saw that none other than the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization has a thorough and convincing debunking of this hoax. When these typically credulous folks de-bunk, that's saying something. Looks like Fox didn't do their due diligence on reporting this one.

An interesting thread on this topic has developed on the JREF site.
