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... Traveling the same region continually need not mean making a trail. Supposedly bigfoot can walk right through berry patches and bushes that would stop you or I dead stop. They would have to actually do that opposite, I guess. Purposefully not making trails. Especially if they are really intellegent. Well the, "What body?" arguement obviously has no defence and thus it is used over and over again. It really is the only good defense. Even if every single report was excellently written and documented with pictures, the Skeptics will repeatedly just k... [More]

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 least ...

I think the minimum population would depend greatly on the communication and traveling abilities of a bigfoot. If they can cover 200 miles in 3 days, then they could be very far apart, as long as they have some way of communicating to locate each other. The problem is that there are very few places in the US where you can travel 200 miles without running into an interstate.
