Rick Dyer, the self-professed “Bigfoot killer,” displayed the alleged corpse of the beast in Houston.
Dyer has been taking the “body” on a tour to prove that the legendary creature exists. He claims he killed it in San Antonio in 2012.
“Well, it’s not important if people believe it’s real or not, that’s totally up to them,” he said on Tuesday, reported Click2Houston.
He added that people who are “haters” are just bolstering his popularity.
“The more haters I get the better,” said Dyer. “So if you have any haters you can give them to me.”
Dyer said that he isn’t going to release the scientific evidence that proves the creature is bigfood.
“Whenever I want to; I mean it’s my body, it’s mine,” he said. “This is about redemption for me and my name, and if it continues to make people happy then I will do it for as long as I can.”
Dyer added: “Kids love it, if I could do this forever just to show it to kids, that’s what I’d do.” “Well, we need fuel for the truck, we need fuel for the generators, we need to eat,” he said.
Last month, Dyer said that he has the medical tests to prove the body belongs to Bigfoot.
“I have the body of Bigfoot, I have DNA tests, I have medical tests, I have every single test to prove that I killed Bigfoot.”
Dyer added that “university in Washington state” did the testing, without elaborating.
“I was filming with the BBC film crew in San Antonio, Texas, and we came across a Bigfoot in the woods; I tracked him down and nailed some ribs to a tree … when he came and got the ribs … that’s when I shot and killed him,” he told Trinidad and Tobago News Live.
When questioned, Dyer has described himself as a “professional Bigfoot hunter” and “the best Bigfoot hunter in the world” and does this full tie.
“Bigfoot is not a tooth fairy — Bigfoot is real,” he said at the time. “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.”
