Scientists Claim They Have Footage That Proves Bigfoot is Real

bigfoot

There really are big, hairy ape men hiding in American forests. At least that’s what a group of scientists in Texas would like you to believe after they spent five years and $500,000 dollars to obtain what they consider undeniable evdence that Bigfoot exists.

According to an ABC news report, “a group of Sasquatch researchers who have been collecting over 100 pieces of evidence over the past five years, screened “never-before-seen HD video” of the alleged creature  at a news conference in Dallas on Tuesday.”

Three of the clips shown to reporters claim to depict a juvenile Bigfoot walking in the woods, another “older” Bigfoot’s face, and a third, very short video clip from 2005, reportedly showing a sleeping Bigfoot.

The footage, which came from a similar effort called The Erickson Project, led by Adrian Erickson, included what the group said was a Sasquatch moving through wooded areas in Kentucky.

Dr. Melba Ketchum, who has led the group of researchers called the Sasquatch Genome Project, has been working on analyzing DNA samples from an unknown hominin species. Ketchum calls the  project “a serious study” that concludes the legendary Sasquatch exists in North America and is a human relative that arose approximately 13,000 years ago,” according to the ABC report.

The samples were reportedly submitted from 34 different hominin research sites in 14 U.S. states and two Canadian provinces.

Dennis Pfoul, the group’s project manager, also showed footage of footprints of what he believes belongs to a Sasquatch in the snow in Colorado.

Mainstream media has reported both skeptical and derisive  responses to the Sasquatch Genome Project’s announcement.

Todd R. Disotell, a professor at the Department of Anthropology at New York University, told ABCNews.com that Ketchum’s research is nonsense.

“It’s just a joke,” he said. “She  is a laughing stock of people that are of a community that are already kind of wacko.”

“This was not reported in any scientific way whatsoever. It’s complete junk science, and then she misinterprets it. She hasn’t published in peer-reviewed papers on this stuff. I don’t know how this got put together,” he added.

While some of the Sasquatch Genome Project’s footage is blurry and it is difficult to discern what is really  in the photo, there are a couple of high definition shots .

However, the brevity of the clips allows for doubt to overshadow their claims. In the days of the ubiquitous high-definition cell phone and surveillance cameras, who can blame those who remain skeptical of the  grainy footage that is often touted as evidence of a Bigfoot, Loch Ness monster or alien space craft?

Check out some of the footage for yourself and tell us if it convinces that Bigfoot exists.

    OMG this is the fake=est shit I've ever seen

    Somehow they predicted there would be skeptics.

  3. Nope

    looks like bigfoot was too tired to even look for a good place to sleep… just laid down right there in the open and took a nap.

  5. THIS IS NOT SCIENCE. These frauds don't deserve to be called scientists. It's a shame that this is being passed as something that can better help us understand the natural world around us, but is actually just a shameful attempt to gain fame and fortune.

  6. As Shakespeare put it "Here is the rub"–higher primates divide into two groups–Old World and New World–All the great apes–gorillas, chimps, orangutans, gibbons, and ourselves are Old World–there is just no chance that anything roaming the woods is of Old World heritage–someplace somewhere we would have found fossils that predated what would have us believe they spotted.

  8. that's not Sasquatch… my ex wife would never go into the woods.

    Something that large would poop and eat a lot. Where is the poop? Where are the dead deer it has killed?

  10. Ketchum claims eleven labs returned results that support her DNA claim. In fact eleven labs did return results, but all eleven of them returned a result of human mitochondria for the samples they were given. Ketchum twisted the results claiming that certain anomalies in her analysis were unexplainable and that it must be a human hybrid. New York University, one of the labs that tested Ketchum's samples, took her to task on this fact but she has yet to respond. The video is an even worse joke. If Sasquatch exist then they have to be one of the most shy and elusive creatures on the planet and they just "sneak up" on it? Yeah right. Not to mention the failure to get a face shot (occluded by a conveniently placed tree) that would have revealed what we were really looking at. These scam artists are as stupid as they are bold.

  11. No Bigfoot is scaring me.

    Do they have scientists in Texas?????

  13. Really? Have you seen the study?

    http://sasquatchgenomeproject.org/view-dna-study/

    Ketchum is a Federal and state court certified forensic DNA analyst who has the latest equipment and techniques and has been running a professional forensics DNA lab for 20 years, who also happens to be a DVM, not a PHD, and did most of the genome sequencing for equines. She is a legitimate scientist, unlike Disotell who has 3 degrees in the arts. BA, MA and Ph.D.

    Ketchum said she didn't believe it when she started, it was just business for her lab. And now she wishes she wasn't even involved. The critics also don't take into account that the forensic chain of custody on the samples would stand up in court as they were collected by a microbiologist and then others via law enforcement. She says the chain of custody would stand up to murder convictions if they were criminal cases.
