HOUSTON, Feb. 24 (UPI) -- About 800 people came out to a Houston flea market for a glimpse at an alleged Bigfoot corpse being taken on tour by a self-described "master tracker."

Rick Dyer, who claims to have killed the legendary beast in 2012 outside of San Antonio, took the alleged Sasquatch corpse to Trader's Village Sunday for the first stop on his tour of the city, the Houston Chronicle reported Monday.

"We got here a day early and we just wanted to show as many people as possible," Dyer said of Sunday's unscheduled stop.

Monday and Tuesday showings of "Hank" in Houston have already sold out, Dyer said.

He named the corpse Hank, after an investor, the newspaper said.
