DNA Study Claims Bigfoot is Real

Utah, where I live, has been star-struck by Bigfoot lately!  The ape-like creature has been gracing the front pages of our papers recently, as local sightings have spiked.

Now, a study claims to have DNA proof that Bigfoot is not in the mythical category of goblins, unicorns and werewolves, but is as real as we are. In fact, the study, which is currently under peer review, states that Bigfoot is not only alive and well, but s/he is part human!

Dr. Melba Ketchum, the lead author, emphatically states, “Sasquatch nuclear DNA is incredibly novel and not at all what we had expected. While it has human nuclear DNA within its genome, there are also distinctly non-human, non-archaic hominin, and non-ape sequences.”

Dr. Ketchum boldly claimed that Bigfoot is real, and even argued, “Government at all levels must recognize them as an indigenous people and immediately protect their human and Constitutional rights against those who would see in their physical and cultural differences a ‘license’ to hunt, trap, or kill them.”

Before you get too excited however at the prospect of Bigfoot’s Constitutional rights, do note that the study has not yet been validated through the essential peer-reviewed process. Without this validation, Dr. Ketchum and her team’s claims are not considered scientific. However, the paper, is currently under review and time will tell whether those of us who champion human and animal rights will have yet another cause to rally behind.

I knew a guy in high school who saw Bigfoot in the woods one night. Of course we all laughed when he told us because he also said he was high at the time. Maybe we shouldn't have laughed.

Thank you Cherise, for Sharing this!

Bigfoot has been seen in the Pacific Northwest, several times during the last 100 years. The American Indians, living in various areas in the Country where they have been sighted, saw them and have Stories that they have passed on from Generation to Generation.

where did the DNA come from?

Cherise many societies around the world do not believe in ghosts, the Tiv in West Africa is one example, funny article I had to read for my anthropology course called Shakespeare in the Bush.

Sounds to me more like a Mormon trying to boost her state's tourist industry in the wake of Romney's failed campaign.
