PHOENIX, Ariz. (KPHO) — If you’ve ever wanted to see Sasquatch, now could be your chance.

A sideshow-like display featuring an alleged Bigfoot body will begin its tour in the Phoenix area next week.

The specimen comes from Rick Dyer, a self-proclaimed ‘Bigfoot Tracker’ whose web site says, “I tracked a creature. I shot it. With tears in my eyes, I watched it take its last breath.” Dyer says that was in 2012.

Dyer has hired promoter Andrew Clacy to book stops on the “I Told You So” tour. Clacy told CBS 5 News that the body has undergone DNA testing, MRI scans, an autopsy, and more scientific testing in the last year. However, results from those tests are not yet available.

Clacy told CBS 5 News he is negotiating with various Valley locations that would be interested in hosting the exhibit on Tuesday, February 11 and Wednesday, February 12. He said there would likely be a “very minimal” entrance fee of around $10 for adults and $5 for kids. A glass wall will separate the body from those who enter the trailer.

Clacy and Dyer know that they have a credibility barrier. Dyer admits to being the man behind one of the biggest Bigfoot hoaxes of all time. In 2008 he was involved in a scheme to sell another alleged bigfoot body to the highest bidder. The story got national attention and Dyer went into hiding for months.

Both men insist this time is different. “I spent hours looking at the specimen and it’s real,” Clacy says in a Youtube video. “I’ve touched it, its skin. it’s not a joke.”

Michael Shermer, the executive director of the Skeptics Society, told CBS 5 News the whole idea is ridiculous. “Science is not done by promotional tours,” Shermer said. “Why hasn’t he submitted the body for scientists to analyze? The answer is obvious: it’s a fake. If he has nothing to hide then let him show it to the professionals first before taking his victory lap.”

    Total rubbish, if such specimen really existed it would be “gold” in the scientific community. Not stuffed and put in a sideshow. It’s fake, don’t be foolish and
    support Dyer & his Aussie mate Clacy. Send them packing

    If this was a real Big Foot you would think our government would have stepped in and forcibly removed it from him to have it examined by real scientists.

    This seems like it’s funny to most who are just hearing about this, but it’s not. Look up Rick Dyer on the internet and see who you are promoting. He thinks he is making fools out the Bigfoot Community, but it’s only been the people he’s taken money from. Now he is bringing his scam to the general public.
    The “Rubber Suit of Lies Tour” comes to a town near you. And the blind idiot media are not only allowing this, but again as always, they ignore any type of fact checking. How does it feel to the people he owes money or dvds to? But hey, you’re the media. Credibility? What do you know about credibility?

    I don’t know Dyer but I do know Clacy. Andrew come on! Even for you this is a new low! Clacy Americans are not this stupid, come back to Oz before Rick puts you on display as a neanderal
