Bigfoot Gets Caught on Camera Again

Well, it looks like old Bigfoot is at it again, walking around and parading himself like some animal.

In case you don’t know who Bigfoot is, he’s a big bi-pedal hairy ape-like creature made famous by a short video filmed by Robert Gimlin and Roger Patterson back in October 20th, 1967. Bigfoot also goes by the name “Yeti”, or “Sasquatch”, and has been marketed as a subject for humiliation in beef jerky commercials.

Some say he’s a legend, some say he’s a misidentified animal, and some say he’s just a guy in an ape suit running around and causing mischief for the past five decades.

Last Tuesday in a conference in Dallas, Texas, a group of Bigfoot researchers who call themselves the Sasquatch Genome Project, screened an 8-year-old “never before seen HD video” of the great beast walking around through some Kentucky forest.

According to Dr. Melba Ketchum (not to be confused with Ash Ketchum), a genetics scientist and the leader of the Sasquatch Genome Project, a majority of the $500,000 funded into the group’s study of Bigfoot came from Wally Hersom and Adrian Erickson, both entrepreneurs interested in the “subject matter”.

A total of 111 specimens of purported Bigfoot samples, including everything from hair to skin, came from 34 different hominine research facilities, and have been examined over the past five years by The Sasquatch Genome Project.

The group is hell bent on proving the existence of the Sasquatch, even extracting DNA from their collected samples.

Not to be confused with an old piece Jack Link’s Beef Jerky, this picture shows a sample of Bigfoot’s skin tissue.

“We want people to understand that this is a serious study,” Dr. Ketchum told CBS Dallas.

Dr. Ketchum mentioned in February that, “We soon discovered that certain hair samples — which we would later identify as purported Sasquatch samples — had unique morphology distinguishing them from typical human and animal samples.”

“They’re a type of people, they’re a human-hybrid, we believe. And all of the DNA evidence points to that. And they can elude us, so if you get [footage] at all, it can be fleeting,” Ketchum told ABC affiliate WFAA.

Yet, some believe this whole Bigfoot fiasco to be hogwash.

“It’s just a joke. She, [Dr. Melba Ketchum] is a laughing stock of people that are of a community that are already kind of wacko.” Todd R. Disotell, a professor at the Department of Anthropology at New York, told ABC news.

“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.”

  • Hmm

    I am more apt to believe people talking about Big Foot rather than the people running our government. That is sad to say isn’t it.

    In all seriousness, does anyone really believe that if we had evidence of a human-hybrid being that it would ever see the light of day in this country? We have enough problems debating the Big Bang Theory with Creationism. There are two types of history in this world: the history we are taught and real history.

    Travel the world and you will see just how much we are not being told in the United States. You will see just how carefully our “history” is crafted.

      The approval rating for Congress stands at 10 per cent, so I am not surprised to hear this. It is sad to say, honestly.

      We, in this world, are clogged with a sea of information. In terms of history, Frank Harte wrote, “Those in power write the history, while those who suffer write the songs.”

        Good quote and so very true.

      He has my vote. I am sure he’d re-open the parks.
