Bigfoot, it turns out, was a hoax — the creation of a gent named Ray Wallace. We know because Wallace ‘fessed up. He passed away around Thanksgiving at the age of 84, and his family has come forward.
But here’s the funny part: believers in Bigfoot refuse to believe Wallace’s family, and insist that Bigfoot really does exist.
It’s kind of sad, really. There are people who have devoted their lives to tracking down an elusive creature that now appears to be the product of some wooden foot tracks. Must be hard after all those years to say, “Oops, guess I was wrong. Never mind.”
