"Since nobody knows what a Bigfoot is, there's no available DNA for it. But by testing this DNA, by process of elimination we can find out if it was a bear, gorilla, baboon or something else," he says.

"With two paw marks clearly visible on the car window, this smudge could provide the DNA evidence that finally proves the existence of Bigfoot."

YES! Thank you! I couldn't remember that to save my life! This guy sure talked a good line but I had a hard time believing him. I guess it was just "To good to be true." Thanks again, Rocketgirl

In order to keep our cred as rationalists, we need to carefully parse these events into catagories like: Hoax, Overzealousnes misidentification, unknown encounter, etc. This was not a hoax. It is clearly a misidentification.
