Dubious Group Offering $1 Million for Bigfoot Body


Obligatory Austin Powers opening:

Dr. Evil: Here's the plan. We get the warhead and we hold the world ransom for... ONE MILLION DOLLARS!

Number 2: Don't you think we should ask for *more* than a million dollars? A million dollars isn't exactly a lot of money these days.

Just a million, yea? I'll take it! So would most of the world. And one group is placing that bounty on the table. All you have to do is throw a Bigfoot carcass on that very table.

A publicly traded company called Bigfoot Project Investments, inc. (how direct) began this call-to-action. Led by controversial Bigfooter Tom Biscardi, the self proclaimed "Godfather of Bigfoot", the team wants definitive proof. Much like America's Most Wanted, if you have any information leading to the direct capture of killing of a Bigfoot, you could get that dough.

So get out your camera phones everyone. If you produce compelling Sasquatch footage, you could be in for a big bag of money. Or will you?

Tom Biscardi is a very controversial figure and known hoaxer. He's no Les Stroud, let's be honest. It appears his motivations are typically rooted in financial gain above all, so this feels more like a giant press-release than an actual call for a Bigfoot body. His website is quite bare, and some folks believe he is merely increasing the capital of his company for a couple bucks-worth of stock or a quick and dirty sell. Very strange. There's more lucrative ways to lead your life, I think. To each his own.

While I highly doubt that this character would ever pay out the million, I am curious what the most effective way to capture Bigfoot would be? To be honest, using the Les Stroud technique, is the most practical. That is, get them to come to you by putting yourself deep in their territory and availing yourself in a non-threatening manner. Very rarely do we hear about people walking around the corner and witnessing a Sasquatch. Most encounters involve a creature peeking through windows, throwing rocks, sifting through garbage, infiltrating farm buildings, and so on.

Whether or not you get that payday, at least this challenge gets people outside and thinking about capture techniques. Happy hunting.
