SAN ANTONIO, TX. (Courtesy: KSAT.com) -- Nearly a year ago a self-described professional Bigfoot hunter claimed to have shot and killed one of the creatures in San Antonio.

The alleged incident was featured in a documentary released last year that left more questions than answers.

On Thursday Rick Dyer finally released pictures of the alleged beast's body.

"Bigfoot is 100 percent real -- there's no question about that," Dyer said.

Dyer claims he shot and killed the mythical creature in a wooded area on the northwest side near Loop 1604 and Highway 151 in early September 2012.

Until Thursday Dyer never provided any proof beyond a grainy video clip he shot of the big beast outside his tent. More video was included in the documentary "Shooting Bigfoot," but it failed to impress skeptics.

Following a lengthy battle with his investors, Dyer said he was finally able to reclaim the body.

"I have been worried for so long. I have been put off for so long, and finally we went up to Washington (state) and we got the body," Dyer said. "Every test that you can possibly imagine was performed on this body -- from DNA tests to 3D optical scans to body scans. It is the real deal. It's Bigfoot and Bigfoot's here, and I shot it and now I'm proving it to the world."

So if it's a real bigfoot, did he have a hunting permit for same? Did he kill it out of season? Did he kill an endangered species? Or if it's really a human, will he be arrested for murder?

A picture can be faked. The lab that did the DNA testing has it been confirmed by them? Has his investors revealed they actually tried to seize the corpse? Believe nothing of what you hear and half what you see applies here. Got wonder if there was primitive creature running around with an almost human face should it not be protected? Just like some the Brazilian tribes are from the rest of humanity.

That's something to be proud of. ..I hope you detect every bit of sarcasm in my body. You actually killed something that has been smart enough to stay clear of us humans. We are the biggest savages, the largest parasites, the most dangerous mammal on this planet. How sad it makes me sick. ..
