The couple was living in a tent in the woods near Loop 1604 and Highway 151. One night in November 2009, the couple claimed to see a “very large, hairy animal” enter their campsite and take off with a deer carcass.
“This thing was 75 feet away from me,” the unidentified woman told a 911 dispatcher. “It smells awful and devoured a whole deer carcass and then took off and screamed, screeched, and took off across the street. I know you guys are going to think I’m crazy but I’m dead serious.”
Rick was with famous director Morgan Mathews of UK based Minnow Films. Morgan was with Rick to film part of his latest documentary "Of Monsters and Men" but soon got much more that he ever expected.
That evening Rick had bated the area with pork ribs attached to trees in the area. Later in the evening, the beast returned and began eating the ribs off the tree. It was at that point that both Rick and Morgan heard the creature. Morgan begin filming and called to Rick who was in his tent next to his. Rick stepped out of his tent with his rifle. His first shot hit Bigfoot in the upper back. The creature took off very fast and ran in a semi-circle. It rushed at Morgan and knocked him down. It then began to run away when Rick shot to again and it fell dead.
Since this shooting, the documentary name has been changed to Shooting Bigfoot and is scheduled to be released at the Hot Docs Canadian Documentary Film Festival on April 30th 2013. Morgan have over 8 minutes of High Definition film of which 3 minutes will be in the film. The body has been privately viewed and studied by several scientists and specialists and their results will be released soon. The body is scheduled to be released to the public for viewing sometime this summer.
