It’s been more than a year since self-described professional Bigfoot hunter Rick Dyer claimed to have shot and killed one of the beasts in San Antonio and pictures of the disputed creature have finally been released.

Dyer said he killed the mysterious beast in Sept. 2012 and then released a documentary, Shooting Bigfoot, that failed to convince skeptics he was telling the truth.

Investors in the film fought in court to prevent Dyer from getting back Bigfoot’s alleged body and he only took custody of it recently. "I have been worried for so long. I have been put off for so long, and finally we went up to Washington (state) and we got the body," Dyer said

Now that it’s back in his possession, Dyer is offering an assurance that not only is Bigfoot real -- he’s spectacular.

"Bigfoot is 100 percent real -- there's no question about that," Dyer said. "Every test that you can possibly imagine was performed on this body -- from DNA tests to 3D optical scans to body scans. It is the real deal. It's Bigfoot and Bigfoot's here, and I shot it and now I'm proving it to the world."


The hunter plans to take the body on a tour across the U.S., Mexico and Canada in order to show that he truly did slay the mythical monster.

"Bigfoot is not a tooth fairy -- Bigfoot is real," Dyer said. "The most important thing to me is being vindicated, letting people know that I am the best Bigfoot tracker in the world and it's not just me saying it."

He plans on charging a fee for the privilege of seeing the body.
