On Dec. 28th, Bagaudin Marshani, Russia's Minister of Labor and Social Development in the Southern Republic of Ingushetia, reported the capture of a  Bigfoot-like creature by hunters. But, alas, it was quickly revealed that the "animal" was nothing more than a person in a suit.

Or was that just another hoax to hide the truth about Bigfoot?

According to Marshani, the whole affair was simply a stunt to promote a national park in the region. Darn! And we so wanted it to be real.

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?
