Not at all. This thread had tons of legs. We're on the verge of proving its real. I hear that they find some pretty compelling stuff on the next episode of Finding Bigfoot, takes place in Michigan. And that camper vid above? Its incredible.
Heard an interview earlier with that Doc in TX, Ketchum which claims the DNA study is accurate.
She says that she was forced to submit the press release because some Russian scientists she was working with that provided her samples started promoting the results of the study.
She said that she was forced to pre-announce because of this.
The research has taken 5 years. Primarily hair samples.
She also said she had 109 sampled in total and that she fell into this because of a show called "Destination Truth" that came to her 5 years ago with a Yeti hair sample taken from S Asia. Once the show aired, she started receiving samples from everywhere and it ballooned to 109.
She said she has found that the female part of the DNA was modern human and the male piece was an undermined species. She said this accounts for many misidentifications of the DNA. Its statistically impossible to have all these samples prove contaminated. She says the crossing of species happened about 15k years ago.
The strangest admission is that she says someone came forward that claimed that they had actual relationships with the BF akin to Jane Goodhall. She said they are called 'habituators' and she said they took her out and she saw them. Also that the people who took her were very secretive and protecting the BF.
She also said she sent samples out to dozens of accredited labs and all came back with the same result and that the paper will be published within weeks.
