UPDATE: Bigfoot Corpse is Hoax? A Boing Boing reader says: "This site has also been making the rounds - it appears that the person behind the whole thing is a known hoaxer. And the corpse is a simple bought costume. Not too sure about credibility, but seems more reasonable than being the real deal."
Loren Coleman of Cryptomundo writes about the Bigfoot body purported to be discovered in the woods in Northern Georgia. The guys who claim to have discovered it are holding a press conference in Palo Alto on Friday.
Is it real? It certainly looks like the real deal, and with a surprising variety of features.
Georgia Gorilla: Bigfoot Body’s First Photo! (Cryptomundo)
The hominoid (please note, not hominid) body, found in the Georgia woods, is now in a secure location, under armed guard, and set to be examined by a battery of academic scholars, skeptical scientists, Bigfoot researchers, and debunking writers.
Who is to say the discovery of Bigfoot won’t happen this way?
With offers of millions of dollars, just for the photographs of the body, Loren Coleman and Cryptomundo was given one copy of the first image to share with you, our readers.
The body doesn’t look exactly like people thought it would, because the Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot has been the model in our minds. However, this looks as if it is an actual apelike primate. Indeed, the gorilla-like facial features, the robust lack of canines, and the grinding surfaces shown in the teeth suggest a bulky vegetarian with a mixture of higher primate characteristics.
Will further tests and the proposed live capture of others prove beyond a doubt that Bigfoot is a new species? Stay tuned.
