If you are following the Georgia Bigfoot news, here is a link to the latest on YouTube. The BBC has also reported on the recent claims about the Bigfoot carcass.
I don't think anyone was surprised at the story being exposed as a hoax. The surprise is that so many people wanted it to be true and at how successful the hoaxers were at getting worldwide publicity. There are more people in the world thinking about strange creatures than you thought there were. Bigfoot has escaped once again.
