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.

    A degenerative eye disease slowly robbed Roger Pontz of his vision.

    Diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa as a teenager, Pontz has been almost completely blind for years. Now, thanks to a high-tech procedure that involved the surgical implantation of a "bionic eye," he's regained enough of his eyesight to catch small glimpses of his wife, grandson and cat.
