It is official that it was all a big hoax. Bigfoot remains as elusive as ever.

Apparently two researchers paid an undisclosed sum to the two men who claimed to have found it, in order to study the carcass more closely. They were given a block of ice in which it was claimed was the body of bigfoot. However when the ice thawed, it all became clear.

First of all the hair sample was burned and “melted into a ball uncharacteristic of hair,”said Steve Kulls, executive director of squatchdetective.com and host of Squatchdetective Radio.

As they sped up the thawing process, they noticed that the head sounded “unusually hollow” and once the feet were exposed, the jig was up. The feet were made of rubber.

Calls to the hoaxers, Whitton and Dyer went unreturned.

Whitton’s boss, Clayton County Police Chief Jeff Turner, has said that due to the fraud and the question marks over his credibility and integrity, Whitton had violated his duty as a police officer. Chief Turner said that they are in the process of firing him.

One has to wonder how this hoax managed to get as far along as it did. One also has to wonder why Whitton and Dyer continued the fraud for as long as they did. It must have been obvious to them that they would get found out sooner rather than later!
