Bigfoot

Did anyone see this article with these photos? I thought it was kind of interesting. It will be interesting if it turns out to be verified as real and not a hoax.

I thought they already said it was a hoax.

That's funny, because CNN just posted another article on it today and didn't say anything about a hoax. I guess they are a little behind this time, eh?

When I was in either middle school or just starting high school there was this big story going around about strange foot prints being found in the snow in the town where I lived. The stories even made it in the paper. They were all about this Big Foot thing. LOL......turned out it was these two guys I grew up with that were playing a hoax.

Thanks for the memory you made me smile!

Since they can't come up with a consistent story, it doesn't really say much for their credibility: FOXNews.com - Georgia men claim hairy, frozen corpse is Bigfoot - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News

Quote:
Whitton and Dyer promise to tell the story of how they found the corpse at the news conference. They have offered three different tales so far:

_ In early videos, the animal was shot by a former felon, and the men followed it into the woods.

_ In a second version, they found a "family of Bigfoot" in North Georgia mountains.

_ In the third, the two were hiking and stumbled upon the corpse with open wounds.

I don't disbelieve it, but I don't believe it either. Same with the Bear Lake Monster, the Loch Ness Monster, the ones allegedly in the Great Lakes, and others. Sure it's possible, but not very likely.
