Woman unveils Bigfoot hair and skin samples

Betty Klopp believes Bigfoot exists and claims that she has the hair and skin samples to prove it.

The samples were originally collected by her parents who had been driving along towing a small trailer in the 1960s when they were forced to swerve to avoid a figure standing in the middle of the road. When they got out to investigate there was no sign of anyone or anything, however the next day they discovered skin and hair snagged on to the back of the trailer.

"This is something you don't run into every day, quite literally," said Klopp. To find out more about the samples she had them sent to the University of Montana for testing about three years ago, however researchers were unable to identify the species because the DNA had deteriorated too much.

"Betty Klopp has been holding on to these strands of hair and bits of skin for nearly 45 years."

They need to do the same test as with this sample imo Sumatran Orang Pendek Hairs Match Rock Hyrax Ah yes, the rock hyrax that is entirely something else than than a primate but that has evolved to make people think it was an orangutan like primate and which was to have been proven to the world a few months after you started that thread. Not that that makes any sense at all.Species that evolve to look like something else either evolve to look like something poisonous or dangerous (like insects and snakes that have evolved similar colouration and shapes to wasps and venomous species of snakes) ...

Lol. There's two main cryptids imo (i) the hyrax were-creatures who are adept at keeping humans in the dark (ii) less intelligent flying lizards which use their rib-extensions for flight. Both have keen abilities to directly interfere with the human brain, hence 'loss of time' etc. P.S I assume you haven't actually compared the two hair samples given under magnification and specified in a scientific report.

My money's on Christian! What does that have to do with anything? Are you saying Christians are gullible?

Lol!!!! ....... Extreme Expeditions was a scientifically respectable project to recover Orang Pendek hair, with local guides taking the party up into the jungled hills of Sumatra. So you haven't compared the two images then! Neither have you, you just made it up as usual

Have you? I suspect that you and I both lack the zoological qualifications to make judgments on animal hair samples based upon visual examination.There's no point in me examining the two images because I know nothing about how to identify or compare animal hair samples. I strongly suspect, based upon your history and your su... [More]

Keep an open mind people, Bigfoot/Sasquatch may be out there. After all you are on the unexplained-mysteries website. People are seeing something, what a great mystery!

I strongly suspect, based upon your history and your sub-hypothetical and sub-pseudoscientific theories about animal behaviour and evolution that you couldn't identify a photo of a dog if presented with one, nevermind be able to offer a judgment about animal ha...
