In late December, Russian officials reported the capture of a  Bigfoot-like creature. Turns out that the “animal” was just a person inside a costume.

Could it be that it was just a hoax to hide the truth about Bigfoot?

According to Russian sources, the whole affair was simply a stunt to promote a national park in the region..

Check out a story from MSNBC on the hoax below, as well as two videos which claim to offer proof of the existence of the animal. Is Bigfoot still out there?
