Dead Bigfoot found in Georgia

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The search for Bigfoot, the mythical half-man/half-gorilla beast also known as Sasquatch, may have ended in Georgia.

Or it could just be a hoax that has landed a Clayton County
cop in hot water with his boss.

According to a press release issued by "Searching For Bigfoot," a California-based Web site, two men have not only found the corpse of a 7-foot-7, 500-plus pound man-monkey, but they've also
found a tribe of his brethren living at an undisclosed location in the North Georgia mountains.

The men are to appear at a press conference in California with "DNA evidence and photo evidence" on Friday.

And here is the FOX News video.

I don't know if this is a real dead bigfoot or not, but I guess we'll know on Friday.

Update: The bigfoot body was a hoax. A myth fabricated by a couple of redneck hicks in backwoods Georgia. I'm sure those two are card carrying members of the Republican Party.

The New York Times ran this Reuters report:

Results from tests on genetic material from alleged remains of Bigfoot, made public at a news conference in Palo Alto held after the claimed discovery swept the Internet, failed to prove the existence of the mythical half-ape and half-human creature. The story was fueled by a photograph of a hairy heap, bearing a close resemblance to a shaggy full-body gorilla costume, stuffed into a container resembling a refrigerator. One of the two samples of DNA said to prove the existence of the Bigfoot came from a human and the other was 96 percent from an opossum, said Curt Nelson, a scientist at the University of Minnesota who performed the analysis.
