You probably know by now that a couple of good old boys from Georgia are claiming to have found Bigfoot. Besides making a huge media splash nationally, a quick Web search shows the story's being featured locally in the Arizona Republic, Tucson's Daily Star, and local TV stations.

But Bigfoot also lives in Arizona, according to this Web page. This photo supposedly shows a whole Bigfoot family in the mountains of Northern Arizona. That's the poppa at the top right, supposedly, lending a hand to his wife and baby.

Funny thing about Bigfoot photos and claims, though -- they never pan out. Same thing goes for ghosts, psychics and space aliens. Even when an esteemed figure like former astronaut Edgar Mitchell is making the claim, the evidence never follows.
