A San Antonio man says he not only found Bigfoot, he killed the creature in 2012 and wants to show the world his proof.

Rick Dyer, a self-proclaimed "Sasquatch Hunter", claims on his website that he shot Sasquatch in September 2012 but is just now showing the animal he named "Hank" to the world.

In a story titled "Bigfoot's Death", Dyer says he lured the 7'10" beast using pork ribs nailed to a tree as a bait. As the animal ate, he said he pulled the trigger and killed the animal.

Skeptics, however, aren't buying the story. Dyer claimed in 2008 that he killed Bigfoot then, too, but that story turned out to be false after it was determined 'Bigfoot' was a friend of his in a rubber ape suit.

Researchers claim to have video proof of bigfoot

Dyer told San Antonio TV station KSAT that they ran every test possible on the body: "from DNA tests to 3D optical scans to body scans. It's the real deal. It's Bigfoot and Bigfoot's here, and I shot it and now I'm proving it to the world."

A news conference is scheduled for the coming days to await 'official' confirmation. Dyer says he plans to take "Hank" on a public tour to show the world the truth.

    “Seeing a broken violin is nothing new to me,” Kyle Dillingham said turning to the shelf of those violins waiting for repair. “They’re all over the place, this is a pretty bad break,” he said pulling out a violin with gaping hole in its shell.  Sometimes a ‘bad break’ is just that for the instrument. Those violins where the repair cost exceeds the replacement value are deemed ‘broken beyond repair.’

    Medical mistakes are now the third most common cause of death in the U.S., ahead of breast cancer, AIDS, even car crashes. And a big part of that number comes from mix ups at the pharmacy.It's a mistake that happens more frequently that you might think. Just last week, medication for my family was mistakenly filled at a metro pharmacy with an entirely different drug. We were mistakenly given a generic drug for high cholesterol. "That shouldn't happen, but it does," said Cindy Hamilton, compli...
