Statement from Rick Dyer:
By now you may have seen my video transitioning out of the Bigfoot community. I expected this to happen eventually, but after the documentary was released I saw the level of anger toward my team and myself grow even stronger than it was before. As a result the team has been subjected to extreme pressures, and I have received multiple threats. This morning alone I received several, and it made me realize that the closer we get to the release of the body, the more intense the hatred will become.
This weekend I am releasing a book on Amazon called “I Shot Bigfoot.” I expect it will take passions to an even greater level. But anyone who reads the book will know that it wasn’t written for the Bigfoot community. It was written for the rest of the world to hear my story. “I Shot Bigfoot” is my act of transition from the Bigfoot community into the larger world that exists outside of it.
I will no longer engage the community directly on my own radio shows or in comments on external Bigfoot-related Facebook pages. (Our own Facebook pages will continue as before.) I am asking my team to follow my lead and not escalate the wars by trying to converse with people who ridicule them. If any of my team wishes to continue battling with the Bigfoot community as temperatures rise, I have told them I sincerely appreciate their involvement and want them to move on from any association that they feel confines their spirit, with both my thanks and very best wishes.
This transition simply is a disengagement from the battles that are raging throughout the social media community. I will continue blogging as I have, and all of my website activities will continue even stronger than ever, because now we will begin appealing to an even greater audience.
All memberships in Team Tracker are not affected whatsoever, and members can look forward to benefits that will increase as we get closer to the ending of agreements that have precluded release of further information. Remember that our memberships are new and have been designed to invite people to join at reduced rates for benefits that will grow as the organization grows. Some people will continue to find reasons to criticize that, but now you can talk about it amongst yourselves.
I am looking very forward to an exciting future that we all can only imagine. If you regard my transition as a retreat, you will soon see how wrong you are.
