Shooting Bigfoot: What the Rick Dyer Body Means for Sasquatch Research
Publication Date: March 27, 2013
On the night of September 6, 2012, the premeditated execution of a male Sasquatch suddenly plunged eons of a rich relationship into raw, “snuff” pornography; it was a low point in the history of human ego. Sasquatch is our zoological next of kin; how, exactly, did Rick Dyer earn the right to slaughter one?
The purpose of this brief E-book is to place the San Antonio event, and its recent, explosive aftermath into a broader context than that of a carcass on a slab… or behind glass in a Las Vegas casino.
Say that we wished to learn more about a newly discovered tribe in the Amazon–would we trap one of them, blow his brains out, and haul him from the jungle and into a laboratory?
A quality of uncanny humanness has always been clear at Sasquatch “habituation sites,” places with which the hairy folk have become familiar. Throughout North America, certain people have experienced repeat visits to their homes and properties, often for years. Some have sought, in the peaceful spirit of Jane Goodall, to befriend these curious and tricky neighbors, and to foster (so to speak) an ongoing family reunion.
The recent Texas killing exploited another habituation site. Now an open season on Sasquatch may be at hand, unless halted by insight. We must welcome an immediate flowering of vivid backyard accounts, leading to familiarity, recognition, and protected legal status.
SASQUATCH RISING 2013 is the only available source to not only delve into the scientific revolution unfolding before us today but also to fill in the rest of the story, conducting readers behind the scenes at multiple habituation sites—in Iowa, New York State, North Carolina, Oklahoma, two in Texas, and Vermont. These first-person testimonials and the author’s own field notes show the subtle, surprising ways of our ancient living kin.
