Researchers claim DNA proof of Bigfoot

A group of researchers in Colorado claim to have recorded DNA test results that prove Bigfoot exists.

Researcher Dave Paulides maintains that the group collected several hundred DNA samples from Northern Californiaís redwoods including strands of alleged Sasquatch hair. "This DNA is like nothing else in the world," he said. "This isnít an animal. This is a subspecies of a human, and we believe they travel in groups." According to the team the creatures stand approximately 7 to 8 feet tall and weigh up to 1000 pounds.

"I think that the government probably is aware of the subject, but itís difficult to give acknowledgement to something that they obviously canít control," said Paulides, who estimates that there could be as many as 50,000 individuals roaming the wilderness of North America.

Whether there is any truth to these claims however remains to be seen.

"Bigfoot is real. Thatís according to a group of Colorado researchers who say they have hard evidence proving its existence."

It's a subject with more rabbit trails than... I personally don't find them the same but, it is proving harder to capture a body, for sure. Even those who can easily find them, can't provide proof. But it keeps the subject controversial, interesting, frustrating, and a dozen other things.

Had an ancient hominid, adapted to northern hemisphere glacial mountainous environments, survived into present day it's highly likely its diet would be primarily meat. There is this idea bigfoot shyly wonders around the forest, in solitude, hiding and snacking on berries and small prey. I dont think it would be a very successful survival strategy for a large bipedal ape in a cold environment. Im open to the idea archaic species lingered on in many parts of the world (particularly eurasia as we have some evidence of erectus or other archaic species like the red deer cave people), were at l...

Which is why I speculate hunting+group living+ propagating = a noisy, messy, impact & "artifact" leaving, competitive/aggressive (with humans and other animals for food and territory), easily tracked and located creatures. (Wearing patchwork fur coats, lol). Hiding 5-8-10 of these giant social creatures during sleeping, everyday living activities, hunting, moving to follow food sources or water and a lack of conclusive proof, both seem impossible to me They have opposable thumbs. What marvels could these highly intelligent creatures be using them for by now? Where are the ... [More]

There are lots of encounters in Canada. Not sure about the UK islands. I think there are some "wild man" reports historically in the UK, but I can't remember any modern ones. Sorry...

The problem is that there are very few places in the US where you can travel 200 miles without running into an interstate.
