Not since Harry and the Hendersons has the legend of Bigfoot, aka Sasquatch, aka Yowie, captured the attention of the country so thoroughly. This week, a pair of men from northern Georgia claimed they have found the body of the so-called Georgia Gorilla, and are keeping the remains in a chest freezer. According to a press release by the professional bigfoot hunters, Matthew Whitton, a police officer in Clayton County, and Rick Dyer, a former corrections officer, the creature is a male, 7 feet 7 inches tall, 500 pounds, with feet 16.75 inches long. [That works out to men's U.S. shoe size 28. Hence the name. -ed.] The duo, who say they found the carcass in an undisclosed bigfoot Shangri-La in northern Georgia where they also filmed three living sasquatches nearby, called in veteran Bigfoot researcher Tom Biscardi to help confirm the find. The three are holding a press conference in Palo Alto, California, at noon on Friday to present photos of the big guy (one photo posted on the web drew so many visitors it crashed their site), and, they say, DNA evidence that proves they've found a new species. After that, Biscardi says that -- under armed guard -- "extensive scientific studies will be done on the body by a team of scientists including a molecular biologist, an anthropologist, a paleontologist, and other scientists over the next few months at an undisclosed location."
