Sasquatch/Yeti killed in avalanche in Tibet

By: Melissa Harsh - Team Tracker Member

I recently came across a photo that has apparently been around for years, yet I have never seen it until now. I was intrigued and wanted to learn more about it. What was I looking at? Where did it come from? Who took it? I wanted to find out, not just for me, but for others who had never seen the photo, or who had but didn't know the back story either.

This is the photo I saw


and here are the other shots 








I started digging, searching around the internet, and finally found some information. The picture is of a supposed Sasquatch/Yeti that was killed in an avalanche somewhere in Tibet, (or Europe, depending on who's doing the telling) and then found it's way to a fair in France, where it was displayed on ice in 1997. It was known as "The Yeti of Bourganeuf", named after the town in France where the fair took place.

An investigator named Christian Le Noel saw the display and wanted to find out more about it. He was told, by the man displaying the Yeti, that Tibetan Monks found it in an avalanche, and that they then had to hide the body in a well from the Chinese Army. Apparently the army found it anyway, and quickly took possesion of it. The Army later decided to display the body, for a time, in Shanghai.

Noel was then told that after Shanghai, the body somehow made its way to East Germany, where it was part of a state run fair. The fair eventually went bankrupt after the collapse of the communist bloc. After that the body traveled from Germany to France, where Noel would see it and begin his investigation.

When Noel pressed for more information, asking to possibly talk to others who had possession of the creature, he was told that because the body was so similar to a human's that whoever owned it, or even came in contact with it, would refuse to talk to him, afraid of the legal consequences. Or at the very least, bad luck. 

After pressing even further, Noel was dismayed to find that both the body and its owner had disappeared. And that was the end of the story until over a year later, when a man came forward to the journal "Cryptozoologia" saying he was the sculpter of the corpse in question.

The “Yeti de Bourganeuf”, trickery was admitted by the creator, done to honor Bernard Heuvelmans and his dealing with the Minnesota Iceman. It is a sculpture by artist Emannuel Casteels Janssen, and was manufactured to showcase Janssen’s skill.

My friend and associate from France, Michel Raynal wrote of this:

In 1997, what looked like a new version of the affair of the frozen man (this cadaver of a frozen hairy man shown in the US fairs, which Bernard Heuvelmans was able to study in 1968) occurred… in France ! It was indeed a hoax, and amusingly, our Belgish friends of the ABEPAR (which publishes the journal Cryptozoologia) are (involuntarily) responsible. 

Emmanuel Casteels Janssen, animal sculptor and a collaborator of the magazine, relates in the June to August 1998 issue of Cryptozoologia that two friends of his, have helped people who wanted to make a giant copy of Bernard Heuvelmans’s frozen man: "In fact, it was a sculpture made with sponge rubber on which hairs of horse tail have been pasted. The eyes have been simply bought from a provider specialized in taxidermy."

So, the intriguing photo also has an exciting history, one of course steeped in trickery. That is
exactly what I'd expected to find. After all, anyone can hoax a Bigfoot photo, but it takes an artist to make a
good fake. And an artist to come up with a detailed back story. And because of the quality there are still people who believe this story is real and these photographs genuine.


Editor's Note:  

This story whether true or false, based on this account, now resides in the fictional section of  History, myth and folklore along with the likes of "the Minnesota Iceman", (which surprisingly, this year,  has re-surfaced again, although a fake) and "Patty" from the famous "Patterson/Gimlin Film" (still not officially decided one way or the other but with more evidence leading to it all being a hoax) just to mention a few.


Some of these and other similar accounts may have started out as being true but over the years have now become listed as a hoax, myth or urban legend. There is one story that started out as a hoax but over the years, it has ended with a true encounter. On September 06, 2012, in San Antonio, TX, a man by the name of Rick Dyer did track, shoot and kill a Bigfoot which frequented the encampment of some homeless people in that area and was successful in retaining the body for scientific study.


Please go to the following websites to get the full story of what happened and details about the Bigfoot that was shot"

Also you can pre-order the DVD's "After The Shot" which shows the recovery and transport of the creature to the facility where it was studied for the past year and "BIGFOOT - The Autopsy", the complete autopsy performed by the scientists. See and learn about their anatomy. See the website for more details.

Are you guys stupid? Why would you post an entry like this when it is precisely what Dyer is doing. Any of the little minded people who still believed him would surely start questioning how incredibly easy it is to fake this nonsense, and how incredibly gullible the people who believe it are.

Hey Anonymous. If you really think what your saying is true . Why do you hide behind an eyonymous banner like the rets of these non believers

Anonymous said...

Anonymous @9:49, the thing is Dyer is promising a real body and has said it won't be some sort of replica like this. Everyone will see if he can pull it off soon. He is certainly acting like he has the real thing. We shall see.

I have never understood those people like you who think the whole thing is nonsense, yet spends their time following and posting on it.

Anonymous said...

And because Dyer says so, it's true? You are aware that he has been promising things over and over for the past year and has yet to deliver on any of them, correct? All of which had deadlines as well, none of which were met. He is conning people out of money...do you expect him to act as if he doesn't have a body? I'm not sure I understand your thought process. Of course he will act like he has one. That is how hoaxes work and that is how he leeches money from the gullible.

Honestly, when I first posted a few things I was trying really hard just to warn people they were being taken advantage of. The people following this are generally uneducated and do not have much money. Yet Dyer has no problem taking the little money they do have. Were you there when they were told to put off paying their electric bills so they could buy this fake dvd? The dvd that supposedly contains the same contentt all his little followers were supposed to get for free when they originally signed up and paid money to be a part of his "team." Now everything he has promised has been delayed AND his team has to pay all sorts of additional money to see it. This is the definition of a hoax.... Anyway, that is why I started posting. Now it has become more for entertainment purposes then anything else. People have been warned, and if they still fall for it, they deserve it in my opinion. But Dyer and his crew screw up so many times on a daily basis that its fun to point out and make them look stupid.

Hope that answers your questions. And for your sake, I hope you haven't given this criminal your money.

I don't think I even implied that I thought Dyer was telling the truth. My point was that he was promising a "real" bigfoot, if there even is such a thing, in contrast to a model. The original suggestion was that the article was stupid, because Dyer is doing the exact thing. Like I said originally, we shall see if he delivers on that promise.

Personally, if I was absolutely convinced a man was a criminal and running a hoax I doubt I would find it entertaining but that is just me. The only thing I have spent is my time.

Dyer is an idiot. There is no dead bigfoot. Rick can not even walk and chew gum at the same time, let alone kill and move a Sasquatch. Get real people.

Jason Judd said...

@4:23AM, for those that have seen it, you are stating that the sun doesn't rise in the east and sound silly to the ones that know it does. The same people over and over......and over. It's your prerogative to think how you do, and that's fine, but to claim that the sun doesn't rise in the east without proof of it rising in some other direction is erroneous. You should start your comments with "I think," rather than boast a claim. We have, and seen, the proof. Run along.......or stay and enjoy what we will bring to the table.--JJ TT.

Jason Judd said...

@12:26AM, your entire thread is based on Rick being a criminal. Please, I'd love to see the "money" backing that claim. Or, do you just believe all that you hear from the opposing side as we believe Rick? You do not know Rick. However, you do write very well. Reminds me of someone....:o)

Jason Judd said...

I thought this entry was a very interesting story. Very good Melissa and nice investigation too. JJ-TT

Jason duds. You have not brought anything to the table. Just more promises. More big dates first the movie not shooting bigfoot than August 15 than sept and now dec 2013. You are nothing but ricks bitch. If you would like to put some money on a bet . Just let me know today. You want to bet just stand on your head shake your ass and I will cover whatever falls.... Just respond to this and I bring my check.

Anonymous said...

He has a point, Jason. You do a lot of talking and you, or anyone else from TT, have yet to bring literally any proof. Why not make a bet if you are so certain?

Anonymous said...

Jason, who do I remind you of? I can assure you I am not anyone you know. I am an outsider who casually follows the story of BF. I was drawn to this story because of how utterly ridiculous it has become. It is as if Dyer read a basic case study for a hoax and is following it word for for word. It is beyond evident, but when you deal with people who are not very intelligent, it can be implemented easily. And what "money?" Did people not give money to join his team on the promise of stunning evidence that was never delivered? Is he not selling one bogus dvd after another? Did he not try to charge all sorts of money for expeditions? Does he not constantly ask for handouts...err...donations to fund his little scheme? And that is just the basics. I can only imagine what happens behind the scenes. I do not know Rick, but have dealt with a few people like him in my life. One of whom is now in jail for tax evasion.

Anon 1:36, you can only try and help people for so long. At some point you just have to sit back and watch the wreckage.

Was derek randles seeing the body yet another attention grabbing lie?

Anonymous said...

Melissa, is it true Rick didn't show you the body while you were in Vegas for the Heart Attack Expedition because he was afraid you'd eat it?

Jason Judd said...

It takes time to study something new. AAS Science has a journal about a fossilized metatarsal that was older than the current accepted age of H.habilis. Even though it is identical to H.habilis, the age of the fossil is what leads the author to assume it was from A.afarensis. It took them 11 months to study it and compare the fossil to newer fossils then another 4 months to write the paper, finally, 40 days for peer acceptance. That was just a bone two inches long. What you should be claiming is this: how can the science be finished on a new species in just 15 months? That would be a logical question.......unless, there were investors paying to have it expedited....but then, you'd have to believe that there are investors. Furthermore, by asking that question one could assume that you may believe part of this story. But why would Rick have investors? Perhaps his "internet blogtalk shows" make them money? No. Perhaps he really does have something investors want.....This would be too mind boggling, right? The reason we do not bring "proof" to you, is because 90% of the BFCom is anonymous. It is not up to us. It will be in December, but for now, it is not. If people would like to see it sooner, buy a DVD. I wish I could get money for that plug.....What's amazing, Rick is paying for people to come to Vegas. Hmmmm, not such a bad guy.......

Jason Judd said...

Also, he gave you the tent video along with the creature alive in "Shooting Bigfoot." Which is more than any other namebrand bigfooter.

Jason Judd said...

Everyone charges for expeditions...You might have known that if you would have researched before commenting. You're right, you can only imagine what happens behind the scenes--I don't have to imagine. I do, however appreciate your writing skills. The "money" subject was in regards to you claiming that he was a criminal, as in, "I'd like to see the proof of your claims."

Christopher said...

Wow...you haters have sunk to a new low. You're not clever or funny. Nice job Melissa.

Jason said: "What's amazing, Rick paying for people to come to Vegas. Hmmmm, not such a bad guy..."

Are you kidding me, Jason? Rick is just making another promise that will never materialize. He promises a lot of things, but when the time comes to deliver, the story changes or is dropped altogether.

Jason, answer this, and don't lie. Have you seen the DVD? No, not just the cover, but have you seen the film? Before you answer think long and hard, your honor and integrity is on the line and we won't forget.

Dyer has promised a *REAL DEAD BF BODY*. There is a MAJOR caveat however. *BF* has NEVER been identified scientifically (TAXONOMY)! Using the term BF itself is ambiguous as well, it's not a proper scientific name either. SO>>>Dyer can make this claim with impunity, since he can't be sued for *failing* to produce a *REAL DEAD BF*. Get it guys?
Now, this begs the question>>> Does he have a reasonably convincing mock up? Perhaps..I think this is a very good possibility because he *could* then pull off his DOG AND PONEY SHOW TOUR as well. No one could legally prosecute him either because there would be no legal standing, given that there isn't existing criteria to determine what a BF is! BINGO! Dyer wins.
Now...this doesn't mean he wins over those who won't be convinced due to lack of scientific confirmation. He says there will be scientists at the press conference...let's see how he handles that one.

Derek Randles will view the body. I've personally confirmed this. However, he won't be commenting on what he see's. He has told me that personally.

Anonymous said...

Yes, Vegas Rob, that is a great question for JJ and TT's. I would imagine Rick is already purchasing airfare and rooms for the entire team to get the best pre-90 day rates. How's that all working JJ? Who is in charge of this Grandeur BF reveal event?

All he has shown us is a live one...NO EVIDENCE HAS BEEN SHOWN OF A DEAD ONE!!! They push the tent video, and MM reputation, But won't show one pic of dead Hank???????

Jason - I'm not going to play your little cat and mouse game. You know as well as I do that Dyer is a criminal and this is a scam. However, I am more than willing to put my money where my mouth is. You are absolutely certain this is a legitimate story, correct? You are certain it's all going down in December, correct? The world will be a shown a dead bigfoot body and prove to the world, including the entire scientific community, that this creature is, in fact, real. I've got 5 grand that says it doesn't happen. How about it?

Anonymous said...

Mel & TT's, in your perfect BF world, does Frank Cali act like a man who really saw a REAL Bigfoot body? An undiscovered mythical creature and the biggest discovery of out lifetime? Many have watched the RD shows and none believe Frank Cali!! He doesn't come close in excitable behavior in convincing or conveying the authenticity of RD's BF story!! Frank Cali is a bad joke to the BF community and RD's story!

Anonymous said...

I saw the show where Dyer asked Cali to tell the viewers about *seeing the body*. That took place when Dyer had invited several team members to take the expedition in Nevada months ago. Dyer said he would show *the body* to some members (they had to sign NDAs and not disclose as to whether they saw a body or not). Cali was the ONLY ONE Dyer mentioned as actually seeing the body and he then proceeded to *interview* Cali about what he saw...it was a CONTROLLED situation with Dyer asking the questions. Cali's response was very *flat* and devoid of excitement and emotion. Not convincing at all.

IM new to this site but I can damn well tell ya that i've bee hunting bigfoot for years and I have only came across some tracks 3 times, heard vocalizations about 10 times, and have seen a big figure once that could have been a bigfoot but really don't know. Let's give Rick the benefit of the doubt, he's sitting on 2 strikes. If he doesn't pull this off, it's strike 3 and he's out. The man will lose every ounce of credibility and he will lose a bunch of money and everything he has will come crumbling down. Guess tune in december. Not so firm believer here.

Jason Judd said...

Why are you so mean? Again, sun rising in the west with these comments. YES, the ticket was purchased Oct 5. Frontier Airlines. See you there Vegas Rob? Nice assumptions you had, but they were wrong. I'll be staying a week and I'll say "Hi Vegas Rob" for you on TV, deal?

Jason Judd said...

Am I to assume the DVD in question is "After the Shot?" If yes, then no. I have not seen that DVD. That DVD will be distributed as soon as 25 more are sold as Rick has stated. My DVD will never leave it's packaging once received. I do think "long and hard;" however, it appears you make uninformed assumptions quite often. That isn't your fault and that is ok, for you don't have the information. I know that you are wishing or wanting information, but Anonymouses will never get the information before the public. You will get what all of the other Anonymouses will get, either assumptions created by non-TT'ers, or an asexual baby bigfoot with wings flying over McDonalds. I figure that you, Vegas Rob, are too smart to had believed the bbBF, so the "assumptions created" is the other option to believe. I like that phrase. "Assumptions created." Redundant and wastes time......which is what I'm doing right now....wasting time....I got stuff to do. Thanks VR....JJ

Jason - If you are such a steadfast believer, why are you ignoring my offer above? Clearly you have seen it. You do an awful lot of talking for someone who isn't willing to back it up. I talk too. I, however, am more than willing to back up my claims. How about you? Is 5 grand too much for you? How about 3k?

Jason Judd said...

I'll take your bet on one condition. Please provide proof that Rick is a convicted felon, which according to the 8:51AM claim you can "back it up." $5k is fine. If you cannot provide proof, then you are fabricating; and, if you're fabricating, then you are a liar. I will not make a bet with a liar. So, if that is the case, you are nothing but a spiteful trouble maker. Your turn "anonymous."

kfbpro said...

I already have 5k on Dyer, I aint scared bitches.

Anonymous said...

Jason - I said he is a criminal. I did not say he was a convicted felon. So that would make you the liar, eh? However, I am still willing to make the wager with you. People can kill people daily in this country and get away with it. So while they may not be convicted, it does not make them any less of a criminal. Right? Right.

So are you in? Assuming you are, I will investigate the best way to make this happen. With all due respect, I do not trust you and so I will find a service that will allow us to both put the money up front. That way neither of us can get out of it.

Jason Judd said...

Or, was the bet that Rick is a felon? Wasn't that what you said? You'll back it up with a 5k bet that Rick is a felon?....I have no idea which one you are betting anonymous.

Jason, are you saying Rick paid for your ticket? Or did you?

Dude, what are you talking about? The bet was quite clear:
"You are absolutely certain this is a legitimate story, correct? You are certain it's all going down in December, correct? The world will be a shown a dead bigfoot body and prove to the world, including the entire scientific community, that this creature is, in fact, real. I've got 5 grand that says it doesn't happen. How about it?"

I never even mentioned the word "felon" so I don't know what post you are reading. Though, yes, I do believe he is criminal and I do ultimately think he will end up in prison. But that is neither here nor there. The bet was clear. Despite having seen literally no evidence you are 100% certain Dyer's story is true and the world as we know it will soon change given this discovery. I think it's crap. Do we have an understanding now? $5k works for you?

kfbpro said...

There is so much evidence he is telling the truth, u sound dumb and will look very dumb in December, especially if u bet 5k against Dyer. Look at the tent video, that there is evidence, what about Morgan Matthews not complaining about or denying anything Rick has said so far on his shows every other night? Oh ya MM must be in on the hoax, right... He got his ass kicked by Bigfoot dude, and he's not the first one, wrap your mind around that.

Jason Judd said...

You called him a criminal and your words were: I will back up my claim. A bet of $5k. The only way to prove he is a criminal is if he is a convicted felon. You said that you would back up your claim. I accepted if you could. If you can't back up your claim, then you, not me, are a liar. Then, the deal was off. That is how it reads...... I didn't write it. You said you could back up your claim.

Seriously, you have awful reading comprehension. I will copy and paste, for the second time, what the bet was. You seem to be trying to bob and weave your way around it. I'm not sure how much clearer I could possibly make it.
