Siberian “Dead alien” fake
A video of what was claimed to be a mutilated alien corpse, which scored hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube, has turned out to be fake.
The tiny “dead alien” is just skin from chicken filled with bread, reports the website 7d.org.ua. Police questioned the men who claimed to have found the “body” and they allegedly confessed to creating it themselves.
The chief editor of the local Kabansk-Info newspaper initially thought that it was the body of an infant in the video and alerted the police. Officers immediately started the investigation and identified the alleged author.
They went to his house and asked him about the infant’s body. The scared man reportedly showed a fake alien corpse. It was even painted in “alien colors”. Scolding is the only possible punishment for such a stunt as it cannot be considered a crime, the report says.
The footage was taken near the village of Kamensk in the Russian republic Buryatia, just north of Lake Baikal, the file’s description said.
It showed what appeared to be a humanoid body less than a meter high with a skeletal big-eyed head and thin naked body. One of its legs was missing.
Emotional off-screen comments said the body was found a couple of hours before and was clearly very dead.
Local media reported there were numerous reports of UFO sightings in the area in March, some of them later attributed to bombing training at a nearby military range.
The video was uploaded on YouTube on April 14. Three days later it was translated into English and its popularity skyrocketed in the following days. It beat the one million benchmark on Tuesday.

So if it were "real", do you actually believe that "official" sources would just come out and call it the real deal?
Dead chicken skin stuffed with bread? LMAO, That's ridiculous.
Now that this has been released, which isn't proof, it's someone's statements, it will be slowly forgotten. It really isn't that hard to cover up something like this if it were real, all they have to do is what is written above.

Apparently the earliest source I can see for this is 7D.org.ua (www.7d.org.ua...)
They are a Russian TMZ-like site (celebrity gossip, etc.) This article concluded that it was a suspected 'joke' and that they authors used chicken skin and coloring to create the creature. The article, if you go looking is right above the report that Jackie Chan is dead.
Earlier, I 'went along' with the trend and moved the last thread on this to the HOAX forum, which was clearly my mistake, it seems to have caused great offense in the community of those who need more dis-proof before conceding that it is not real.
My opinion not withstanding, I am uncertain as to how one gets 'proof' over the internet?
