Breaking: is the “Georgia Gorilla” really Bigfoot?

Montauk Monster, eat your heart out.

A press conference has been scheduled for this Friday (August 15) in Palo Alto, California. According to a press release distributed today, a body of a large primate found in Georgia will be presented to the media.

Is this Bigfoot at last?

It sure sounds like Bigfoot. From the press release:

Here are some of the vital statistics on the “Bigfoot” body:
*The creature is seven feet seven inches tall.
*It weighs over five hundred pounds.
*The creature looks like it is part human and part ape-like.
*It is male.
*It has reddish hair and blackish-grey eyes.
*It has two arms and two legs, and five fingers on each hand and
five toes on each foot.
*The feet are flat and similar to human feet.
*Its footprint is sixteen and three-quarters inches long and five and three-quarters inches wide at the heel.
*From the palm of the hand to the tip of the middle finger, its hands are
eleven and three-quarters inches long and six and one-quarter inches wide.
*The creatures walk upright. (Several of them were sighted on the same day that the body was found.)
*The teeth are more human-like than ape-like.
*DNA tests are currently being done and the current DNA and photo evidence will be presented at the press conference on Friday, August 15th.

I know, I know. This could very easily be a publicty stunt or a hoax- it sounds waaaay too good to be true. But several high-profile cryptozoologists, including Cryptomundo founder Loren Coleman, have reportedly seen photos of the creature. And Coleman for one thinks it is significant:

I feel, in all honesty, this, indeed, may be the real deal, and I say this carefully after reviewing information that has been shared privately with me. I cannot say more yet. But people will be very surprised.

From what I know of Loren Coleman, he wouldn’t knowingly go along with a hoax or publicity gag. This is a guy who truly cares about cryptozoology. So if the ‘Georgia Gorilla’ is a fake, then it must be a very, very good one.

So, I guess we’ll have to wait until Friday. I’m not sure what to make of all this, but I am definitely intrigued. A real Sasquatch carcass would blow a Bigfoot-sized whole through the world’s own idea of itself, turning modern science onto its head.

    Holy S! My mind has literally been blown… I daresay you’re right Nunc, this, if it turns out to be the real deal, will probably be the biggest discovery we’ll see in our lifetime. UNREAL!!! I’m also betting that IF it is the real deal it will take a lot more than just the one press conference to really convince people.

    Man this would be so cool if it were true but I have to say, this does all sound a little too good to be true.

    Yes, too good indeed. I am sceptical since the only evidence I can find on Google about this upcoming Press Release is on your blog and Crypto-whatever’s blog. Really, how reputable is this chap? But for the record, if there is one, I am hoping this is the real deal. Its time our species lived in harmony. We could groom these furballs to be more polite instead of fearful, combed instead of shaggy, bring out their human side, bury their apeness. Or turn them into super-soldiers…

    IAWTC and will be reserving judgment until I see a bonafide press release. But I did end up killing an hour or so today looking at cryptozoology websites, so thanks. Now a small, non-profit arts organization is one hour further away from getting much-needed corporate sponsorship grants and it’s ALL YOUR FAULT.

    Does anyone else find it funny that Bin Laden just happens to be 7’7″ tall as well? And has anyone ever seen Bin Laden and Bigfoot in the same room at the same time? Hmm.

    This has been reported on Fox News this morning. That’s what made me go looking for the report. Sceptical too, since why no immediate run to any good news company when found, at least with one photo of the dead thing to give some credence to the story. I think this is just a “story” or probable hoax.

    Fox News just stated that a second Chewbacca was just found in the middle of a crop circle in India and that Bill Clinton did in fact have sexual relations with both of them.

    I’m a drywall taper o.k. One time while working in Georgia I was attacked from behind and sexually assaulted o.k. When I woke up and found my pants the other guys told me I had just had an encounter with a Bigfoot. I was a little skeptical of what they were saying but I had been drinking and wearing Axe after shave. Now that this has come out I’m so glad I didn’t press charges. I think he gave me the clap.

    I think it committed suicide from the embarrassment of all those beef jerky commercials….

    What is wrong with you people? Why can’t you just leave these gentle giants alone? Any time I’ve ever made love with one, they’ve been very gentle. Tender even.
