A passage from the first site says:
After the Searching For Bigfoot team and "The Real Bigfoot Hunter" Tom Biscardi began to thaw out the creature in a 1,500 lb. cooler of ice, they discovered it was a rubber suit.
What was the motive of the two men who claimed to have found a cadaver?
Biscardi contacted Whitton and Dyer and they agreed to admit the truth to the public. When Biscardi arrived at their hotel, the pair had vanished.
Searching For Bigfoot believes that their motive was financial.
They needed to quote a website to suggest that the motive was financial?
I wonder if the wounded police officer of the two men will get his job back. I'm glad I don't live anywhere near where he's patrolling.
The easiest way to determine if it's a hoax about bigfoot: it's about bigfoot.
