It's the "War of the Worlds" announcement approach. This morning, Sterling, the host of the Ohio radio station 700WLW Cincinnati - The Big One started his program with the words, "This is crazy...". Sterling announced: "I don't know if you've heard, but there's a Bigfoot that has been captured..." The host then took a call from a listener: "A friend of mine that works in the county you're speaking of, it was actually captured yesterday afternoon. It loves ground hogs-- live grounds." The host went on to take other calls from listeners who corroborated the story, and one man named David claimed they had to send a guy inside a cave to capture the Bigfoot. He said dogs were sent in to corner the Bigfoot and wounded the "animal". What type of dog did they send? A chihuahua.
The fiction was maintained for three hours until a sports show host took his place. Only then does the radio station explain that the story is probably fake. Allegedly. Loren Coleman chimed in with a post on Cryptomundo:
"Could this be “Daisy in a Box” hitting the mainstream media?"
Here's the show in its entirety (Note: The show goes silent during breaks):
