Just supposing this story is true, could this guy be charged with murder? Or perhaps some crime to do with endangered species?

Again, pretending this creature were real :w00t:
If science kills (new) species to collect and study them all the time, how could I be in legal hot water for killing some animal new to science?
This animal in NOT classified by mainstream science as either what it is or how many there are in the wild. Are they endangered or highly intelligent and elusive?

This is why the only mythical/imaginary creatures I ever kill are vampires.  They always crumble to dust and I don't have to worry about evidence that could be used against me in fairy tale court.

If it is about Dyer, then he should definately be charged with murder, because he probably shot a unwashed homeless man in the back of the head.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

I like how Rick Dyer expects everyone to give him a second chance after he tricks the entire world by creating the most famous Bigfoot hoax in recent history. I completely changed my opinion on the video once I learned he shot the video.

It just didn't seem right to me that people can (hypothetically!), go around killing creatures, willy-nilly, when there are so few of those creatures around(allegedly!). Actually, this it what makes it an obvious hoax ....... if you really knew where Bigfoot was, wouldn't the most logical thing be to capture him/her alive?

Actually no.  The most logical thing would be to kill one and bring it in for further study - thus finally proving it exists and then species and habitat protection laws could then be put in place.

It's easy. Just give me a wink and a sly smile (and maybe flash a little skin) and I'll follow you anywh...

Oh, you're talking about the cryptid bigfoot. Never mind.

Speaking of murdering bigfoot, maybe that's why I've been shot before?

Naw, it was probably just a coincidence.



Whadda ya know? Two in one post. :lol:

We've captured much larger and more dangerous animals, but they were captured by people who knew what they were doing, not by guys yodelling in the forest with FLIR cameras.

I would have thought a couple of tranquiliser darts would be a start.

What, in all the world, could I do to earn my living and still live as myself, as I knew myself to be? Temporary masks, I knew, had their place; everyone was wearing them, they were the human rage; but not masks cemented in place until the wearer could not breathe and was eventually suffocated.

Texas vet Melba Ketchum claims to have found Sasquatch DNA ........ and she is concerned about protecting these 'Native Americans' too ..........


(I'm puzzled by her claim that she got the DNA from blueberry muffins the tribe of TEN had been eating :unsure2: ! TEN? She's identified TEN individual Sasquatches?)

Murdering Bigfoot sounds like the title of a Reality Show.

Well, I guess it only goes to show bigfoot likes blueberry muffins better than slabs of ribs... The gal attracted 10, and the guy in the OP only attracted one.

Your ad hominem connotes your sciolism. Now that is some funny commentary.
