I bet the findings will be inconclusive, as always. I hope it shows something though...

will this post be updated with the findings? I think it unlikely, unless they find something super wazoo in the DNA. There are no names or places mentioned specifically in the article, and the site is kind of a Weekly World News site, based on all the UFO and other whack stories on the side lines. So it will be hard to check up on.

I remember there was a monastery in in the Himalayas that claimed to have a Bigfoot cap. DNA tests ran showed it as being the skin from a goat. I remember they being fairly apologetic about it, stating there may have been problems with the tests, contamination, ect. however, they were denied from doing any further tests.
