For many, Bigfoot hunter Rick Dyer is one part Andy Kaufman and one part PT Barnum, carting around a Sasquatch carcass for display.
Rick Dyer, 36, describes himself as a “master tracker” of Bigfoot.
This week, Dyer and his management team announced they would be taking the Bigfoot specimen he allegedly shot and killed in the San Antonio area on tour across the country.
Dyer is due to hit the Houston area sometime in mid-February. He will tow the corpse behind a 40-foot coach in a trailer.
Dyer said he killed the 8-foot-tall Bigfoot in 2012 with a 30-06 rifle after he lured “the beast” near his tent with a set of Walmart ribs he rubbed with a secret ingredient.
On Tuesday, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department weighed in on Bigfoot, saying that as far they are concerned you can kill as many of the (as-of-now-mythical) creatures as you want.
“We don’t acknowledge that one exists. But if you wanted to shoot and kill a Bigfoot in the state of Texas, you would just need a hunting license,” Major Larry Young, game warden with Texas Parks and Wildlife, said Tuesday.
