This story got me excited at first, but then I noticed a couple red flags. Bigfoot Researcher Robert Lindsay, who is close to the situation, claims the DNA testing is complete and the samples tested positive for "Bigfoot". I don't understand how they can positively identify it as a Bigfoot when there are no other verified Bigfoot DNA samples to compare it to? Also the hunter originally claimed he cut the Steak-sized piece of meat off of the Bigfoot body with a hunting knife. Now he claims he went back to the shooting site two weeks later and found the hunk of Bigfoot flesh mixed in the snow. That is the sample being used in this DNA testing. What do you guys think??
**** BIG UPDATE****
It looks more like this is a scam. Apparently the hunter Justin Smeja and Researcher Robert Lindsay have now teamed up with notorious Bigfoot hoaxster TOM BISCARDI and are attempting to sell the "Bigfoot Steak" for a cool $50,000. Robert Lindsay appeared this week on Biscardi's radio show and announced Smeja was looking to sell the hunk of bigfoot flesh from the shooting for $10,000. However Biscardi anted' up the offer to $50,000... saying Smeja is cutting himself short. They are floating around a photo of the "Bigfoot Steak" online with you can see here:
However Dr. Ketchum is still involved with the testing and scientific findings, which may still turn out to be something, but the longer this goes on the more it stinks. What do you guys think?
**** EDIT **** ****LAST UPDATE****
It's been revealed that the photo they are passing around of their "Bigfoot Steak" for sale was stolen from a cookbook website here:
Busted in yet another scam, when will Biscardi learn? The best way to stop these hoaxsters is to keep everyone educated about these schemes.
