DNA: At least two samples of Bigfoot DNA have been tested and found independently to be an unknown primate similar to humans. Monster Quest went to Canada to retrieve hair and blood samples from a nail carpet used to protect a remote cabin door. Josh Gates and the crew from Destination Truth got a Yeti near Nepal on thermal FLIR, cast fresh footprints on site, and found a hair sample that was returned for analysis by a leading DNA lab. The results were given at a Press Conference that made news around the world. But most Americans never heard about it. DNA proof of Bigfoot, like a funny scene from Men in Black, was probably only reported in the tabloids in America.
Footprints with Dermal Ridges: Forensic experts have been amazed at the detail found in some footprint casts of Bigfoot, causing several to declare the footprints real. Human-like dermal ridges are clearly visible in some casts, as well as skin folds and old wounds. This would be nearly impossible to fake. A carved wooden foot would have to made, then pressed into plaster, with moveable toes that shift with each footprint, and supporting a 600-pound weight with a six-foot stride. Sounds like a lot of work passed down through traveling generations of hoaxers, considering the time and geographical dispersion of the big collection of international Bigfoot footprints.
Cross-Cultural Witnesses: Throughout North America, Native peoples have over 100 local names for the Bigfoot, or Sasquatch. Cultural Anthropologists understand that only a real creature could impact that many different native cultures.
Photos and Video: See below! Photographic evidence of Bigfoot is about as common as photographic evidence of Pluto, the dethroned planet. The Roger Paterson film taken near the Klamath River is the most famous. Largely discounted due to Paterson's personal interest in Bigfoot as a professional Bigfoot hunter, he spent countless hours on horseback looking for Bigfoot before filming an adult female cruising off into the forest. The film set off a firestorm of controversy in America. Proof, or a clever fake? Modern examinations of the film show a natural gait, large natural swinging breasts, and damage to the right leg that is clearly not manufactured but indicative of an injury. The ability to make ape costumes in 1967 was nearly zero, with only heads done so far in Hollywood for Planet of the Apes. The fact that this is a female Bigfoot lends huge credence to its authenticity. Nobody could design large, pendulous fake breasts back then. The baby Bigfoot in a tree video is also very compelling. There is clearly a primate in the trees. Jane Goodall was shown the clip and stated it was NOT a wild Chimp loose in North America. Even more wild, a large primate is seen holding the baby before it jumps up into the tree above. Very convincing. Not to mention hundreds of photos spanning centuries, cultures and continents.
Captured Live: Papers around the turn of the last century report that a baby Bigfoot was captured by a railroad crew on the West Coast and locked up in the town jail, but it escaped overnight.
Recorded Yells: Thousands of people, including President Theodore Roosevelt, have heard the bone-chilling howl of a Bigfoot. There are many recordings, and animal experts are unable to identify the sound as a known animal.
Eye-witness Accounts: While we trust people enough to sentence someone to death based upon one eye-witness, we choose not to believe thousands of solid witnesses to Bigfoot encounters!? Campers, fishermen (Word Police intervention: must say fisherpersons now... or risk occupation by angry anarchists), hunters and hikers are the most likely to encounter an intelligent, elusive primate who can hide and run and likely buries its dead. One reported incident involved numerous Washington commuters, including a number of police officers, who all saw a frightened, hairy, seven-foot-tall primate running at 35-45 mph in the rain along a highway through a narrow canyon. It finally darted up a hill too steep for humans and disappeared into the downpour and darkness.
I hear that the Government does not want to admit Bigfoot exists, as logging may be halted due to endangered species laws. Could get messy, like that durn Spotted Owl critter that caused so many problems to corporate logging interests in the Pacific Northwest...
