Hank verified repeatedly! According to an anonymous source who will not be revealed, several scientists have already verified Hank. I know of at least one occasion recently when a scientist came on the weekend and verified some parts of Hank’s body as real, but did not inspect the whole thing. In addition, several media outlets have sent out MD’s to verify Hank before they wrote their stories about him. They all verified him, so the papers all know he is real, but they are playing it coy. I can also report now that another MD is scheduled to see the body this weekend.
Taxidermy job done at Washington university. Hank’s taxidermy job was done by the people at the university in Washington. That is why it is such a lousy job. It was just student and profs winging it at taxidermy. I will not reveal the source for this news.
Complaint filed with US federal authorities against Rick Dyer and Frank Cali for extorting $10,000 from a man across state lines. According the complaint, Frank wrote the letter demanding payment. To date, no action has been taken on this complaint. The FBI will not even look at any extortion below $100,000, so this case may just sit there and never get acted upon. The name of the Purported victim and where they resided is not known. The crime is said to have taken place last summer around June or July. Nothing more is known at this time. Will be updated! The source for this information is anonymous and will not be revealed.
Visitors to Hank. All of the visitors attempting to view Hank came away either 100% convinced he was real or would say “he is very convincing, but we are still not sure.” I know of eight people from our field who went out there and they all felt that is quite convincing. Nevertheless, about 50% of those people are deeply worried that somehow Rick is scamming them and fooling them and that somehow this whole thing is a hoax.That is because no one trusts Rick Dyer (good idea) nor believes a word he says (the right attitude).
No one has seen the body yet who says it is not real.
Dyer charges critics $20,000 to inspect Hank. Two experts profiled earlier offered to see Hank. One is a Hollywood special effects guy and the other is a famous taxidermist. It was reported that Dyer refused to let them see it, but that is incorrect. Actually, he said he would charge them $20,000 to view it. They declined the offer. Why Rick offered to let them see it for so much $ is not known.
Would haters refuse to verify Hank? This is what Rick is probably worried about. The haters, based only on a few photographs and a longtime belief that this is a hoax, would probably go see Hank and see exactly what they wanted to see – a hoax. This is called confirmation bias. We have already seen several experts chime in to insist that Hank is a hoax based merely on a photograph.
Dyer explains Hank’s teeth. All of Hank’s teeth are made of resin as the real teeth are with the skeleton. Also Hank has had resin coated on his skin.
Musky Allen reveals differences between artist rendering and his description versus Hank now. Musky stated that when he saw Hank, he had been shaved in a number of areas, including around the face. This is why the face looked less hairy. Hair was later glued back on the face and the body where the autopsy was done as the autopsy area was shaved during Musky’s visit.
Washington university revealed? The taxidermy work on Hank may have been done at Central Washington University in Ellensburg, Washington. They have a ANSLAN sign language there that they use to converse with the bonobos at the college. Visitors call it a Chimposium. An excellent place to find lots of primate specialists and host visiting MD’s and scientists.
Gold memberships at Team Tracker utterly useless wastes of money. A TT member reports:
Dyer took down the Team Tracker site, so I have received precisely nothing for my Gold Membership, nor will I receive anything. From what I understand, he is not liable for anything in this regard, as the only guarantee given was that the membership would give the purchaser access to the Gold Members-only page and its content, which it did; technically, he delivered what he promised.
LOL he gave you the page, but there was nothing on it! Suckers! One born every minute, rake, rake, rake, look at my rolls!
Look if you all want to waste money, no problem, but don’t give it to Rick. Give to me instead of flushing it down the toilet or letting it fly away in the breeze.
Lily Dyer cousin works in Special Effects. A source has just informed me that Rick Dyer’s wife Lily has a cousin who works in the special effects industry. +1 for the hoax hypothesis.
Some Dyer supporters jumping ship? Yes, I can tell you that some of the firmest, hardest and strongest Dyer supporters of all are bailing out and going over to the skeptic side. . I would not say these folks have gone over to the skeptic side, but they are no longer 100% behind Rick. Why they are doing this is not known, but Rick lies so much that they do not know what to believe anymore. This is typical with people like Rick. When people like Rick deal with you, you end up confused because they are such confusing people.
As you twist and turn in your confused and bewildered state, the predator comes in the kill, the wolf after the sheep, just like always. A con man moves in and takes you while you are twirling in helpless senselessness. Usually people wake up and wonder what hit them as it felt like a tornado rolling through
TT members voice doubts. I also know for a fact that there are a number of TT members, including some of Rick’s closest associates, who do not believe 100% that Hank is real. They don’t think it’s a hoax either, and they are surely not “in on the hoax.” It’s just that whatever Rick has shown them so far has gone a long way towards convincing them but was not enough to raise it to the 100% level.
Who is in on the hoax? No one is, as there is no proven hoax. But if there is a hoax, it is Rick Dyer’s and Rick Dyer’s alone. He would be doing this alone and would have no one backing him on this. I know this because just about every Dyer supporter that I know actually believes that Dyer has a Bigfoot. You can call them ignorant and stupid all you want, and perhaps they are gullible, but they are not in on any crime. Certainly, Musky Allen and the FB/FB guys are not “in on the hoax.”
Rick either has a real Bigfoot or he has done a masterful hoax that is fooling a very large number of people somehow. That’s your two choices.
Rick Dyer as quintessential Bigfooter. I am getting a lot of flack for this, but it’s just true. It’s not a compliment about Rick; instead it’s a slam on the rest of us. Yep, we really are that bad. We look in the mirror and there is Rick Dyer staring back at us and that’s how you get sites like Randy’s blog. No one wants an ugly reflection.
It’s not that Dyer is horrible, and of course he is, but it’s more that Dyers are dime a dozen in this biz. It’s the non-Dyers who stand out and make you think, “Whoa! What are you doing in this sleazy game?”
Randy’s blog excellent on other Dyer stuff. Randy and I are friends and we work together. I send him stuff both ways, especially that works for his hypothesis. The way I see it is we are pushing alternate hypotheses. May the best man win! Aside from the notion that this is all a hoax, that site is superb for outlining the other less than illustrious aspects of Dyer career and mindset. The endless scamming, the endless lying, the cheating, the sleaziness and nefariousness, the nonstop hucksterism, the constant grubbing for every spare buck, it’s all there.
You either like Rick Dyer or you don’t. Rick even admits that he is crazy and an asshole. Well, it’s one thing to be an asshole, but it’s quite another to be proud of it, but I have known a few. First rule is know yourself.
The commenters often have excellent insight into Rick’s personality, which I have already dealt with on this site. The World of Success is full of Cluster B types just like Dyer. Sadly, personality disorder is compatible with wealth, fame, greatness. The greatest men in history for better or for worse were often fucked in the head.
Sykes nefariousness redux. Via a well known source in the Bigfoot community, an explanation for the bizarre and paradoxical behavior of Dr. Brian Sykes, who looks awful sneaky and political to me anyway.
“I know for fact Dr. Sykes and those working with him had access to the DNA Study. The Bigfoot hair morphology was discussed in great detail including photographs and supplements. The fact that only a few hairs were tested out of 100’s that were sent in to Dr. Sykes is a puzzling aspect of the “Bigfoot Files” TV Specials.”
I have a theory that Dr. Sykes was aware of this unique property that Dr. Ketchum had discovered about the Bigfoot hairs. He knew if he tested true Bigfoot hairs he would not get any mtDNA. He had already professed himself to be the expert and able to extract “pristine DNA” from only a hair shaft, so he has a dilemma on his hands.
If he processes known Bigfoot hair and gets no mtDNA then he has to admit one of two things: 1 – He is incompetent and unable to extract mtDNA from possibly dozens of “clean and pristine” hair samples or 2 -That the hair must be from a Bigfoot or an unknown hominin after the mtDNA failed to amplify from dozens of hair samples. This by default confirms Dr. Ketchum’s DNA Study finding’s and validates her study.
Since both these scenarios is unpalatable, Dr. Sykes opted to just test a handful of hairs he knew where known animal. Surely you do not believe that Dr. Sykes was so inept that he did not have the hairs pre-screened by a forensic hair expert. It is costly to run DNA testing on these hairs, at least $1,500 if not more per sample.
Surely the hair expert Dr. Sykes used was not so incompetent that he gave Dr. Sykes known animal hairs of Bear, Dog, Raccoon, and Wolf? If so, then Dr. Sykes should be suing this hair expert to recoup the thousands of dollars spent on wasted DNA testing. This would explain why only “seven of the best samples were selected for testing”.
In my opinion who ever screened the hairs for Dr. Sykes made sure to exclude any known Bigfoot hairs. This way Dr. Sykes would only be testing known animal hair and avoid having to explain the lack of mtDNA amplification.
This is a “kill two birds with one stone” scenario. Dr. Sykes discredited the Bigfoot researchers in the United States and avoided confirming Dr. Ketchum’s DNA Study. Mission accomplished Dr. Sykes, mission accomplished.
Wow! Thanks for nothing, Bryan! Smell ya later! Oh and thanks for coordinating it with the insulting British TV show. Charming move, and so wrong. And thanks to Rhettman Butthead or Bigfootology whoever for bringing this clown over here to contaminate us for no reason at all. Back across the pond with ye, Bryan! They don’t have Bigfoots in England. We know, we know, we know. But we are bloody colonials, and we have them here in the vast forests of North America, and we don’t care if some asshole TV host believes that or not.
Sasquatch Ontario. Wow. I am convinced that this is 100% real. That is because there is some of the physical evidence that simply not faked because hoaxers have never been able to fake this stuff. There are real footprints and other prints out there, not faked. I do not believe the little weavings are faked either. If most of it’s not faked, then none of it is probably.
The recordings are the most controversial and insane as it sounds, I think these are real vocalizations and the thing is actually trying to speak our language for some reason. Well hominids can pick up a foreign tongue you know. I also know some people who worked with him (he does not always work alone) and they confirmed that that is really an active habituation site with real Sasquatches wandering about. If that is true, then there is no need to hoax.
You are actually looking at a Sasquatch the whole time in this video, incredible as it seems. And that Sasquatch is utterly terrifying. I am still traumatized from seeing it. I assume that anyone who sees one of these things is traumatized for life in some way. The damn things are monsters!
The guy behind Sasquatch Ontario is very controversial, and none of the other researchers in Ontario like him and he won’t work with any of them and apparently doesn’t get along with them. Just a rather difficult individual who wants to do his thing all alone out there and not deal with the rest of the researcher scene, which is basically full of individuals who are either insane or bad or both.
