Bigfoot claims another victim.

Quote:
Bigfoot hoax ruined my life, says Australian man

An Australian man says his life has been ruined since he exposed a world-famous Bigfoot hoax.

Andrew Clacy left his home in Wodonga, Victoria, last December to join self-described Bigfoot hunter Rick Dyer, who claimed to have shot a Sasquatch dead and put it in a glass case.

Clacy put his life on hold and joined the Texan’s entourage to court media attention for what he thought would be a history-making adventure.

For three months the Australian toured the US believing "Hank" was a genuine Bigfoot carcass – even after touching the creature's foot.

"Clacy admits he was foolish to be duped by the notorious Bigfoot fraudster, who pulled off a similar hoax in 2008 with a rubber ape suit in a freezer." Yeah nice work, genius.

At least now we know where to go if we want to see Bigfoot:

A fisherman has taken several clear, non-blurry, highly detailed photos of a bigfoot half submerged in a swamp!

Hot on the heels of that obviously faked Skunk Ape photo comes this dodgy Skunk Ape video:
Huffpo article
Yeah that's way too indistinct, I think we can safely write that off as a guy in a gorilla suit flailing around in a swamp. There's absolutely nothing in the video to suggest it's anything else.


But wait, there's more! A mild conspiracy youtuber who usually gets few views has an obsession with the SUPER VOLCANO under Yellowstone park and often records videos of the park's livestreaming webcams. She posted this video of bison arriving at the Old Faithful geyser and a Bigfoot enthusiast noticed that there were some mysterious figures lurking in the background and posted an 11 minute 'breakdown' video apparently proving that they're a family of Bigfoots stalking the bison. If you watch it you'll note that he's pretty smug and condescending towards non-believers and anyone who would question his reasoning.

Other Bigfoot enthusiasts quickly posted followup videos (here's one and here's another) which completely debunk all his claims and show that the figures aren't massively tall, they don't have non-human proportions, they're not moving inhumanly fast and they're most likely cross country skiers or hikers.

So YouTube is the new snopes now? All I have to do to prove something exists is to post a video about it?

Alligator

Someone from the Florida BFRO actually did some detective work and found out who faked that Skunk Ape photo and the Skunk Ape video, turns out it was the work of the same team of hoaxers who perpetrated a "two headed alligator" hoax in 2014.
