Bigfoot, Yeti, Sasquatch DNA and Proof

Updated on April 3, 2014

Doctor Ketchum on Bigfoot (Sasquatch)

“The male progenitor that contributed the unknown sequence to this hybrid is unique as its DNA is more distantly removed from humans than other recently discovered hominins like the Denisovan individual,” Doctor Ketchum.

Bigfoot; Is This Mysterious Cryptid Actually a Relative of Mankind?

According to the latest web buzz; DNA evidence of Bigfoot aka... Yeti, Sasquatch, or Skunk-Ape is soon to be released to the media. A team of genetic, forensic, pathology, and imaging experts has recently decided to go public with their findings that may show proof that Bigfoot is more than a mythological beast but an actual homo sapiens / unknown hominid species hybrid still existing in modern day North America. This team lead by Doctor Melba S. Ketchum of Nacogdoches Texas confirmed her team finished sequencing 3 nuclear genomes of Sasquatch. It is these genomes that show that the species is a human hybrid offshoot.

The study showed 20 whole mitochondrial genomes and then used next generation sequencing to complete the 3 whole genome chains. In the study it was found that the Sasquatch DNA samples mtDNA was a match for modern human samples; but the nuDNA was of an unknown hominid species cross with female humans. Hominids are members of the group that includes all Homo genus members like human beings, these include neanderthals. But genetic testing shows that neanderthal has been ruled out as the nuDNA contributor.

According to Doctor Ketchum, “The male progenitor that contributed the unknown sequence to this hybrid is unique as its DNA is more distantly removed from humans than other recently discovered hominids."

Doctor Ketchum is a twenty seven year researcher in genetics and forensic science. She also practiced veterinary medicine and helped to sequence the equine genome. She began testing Sasquatch hair samples five years ago in 2007.

Dr. Ketchum is pleading with public officials, law enforcement, forestry, wild life protection and human rights agencies to protect Bigfoot (Sasquatch) as an unambiguous modern human species and that they should be given and recognized as indigenous people and protected by their Constitutional rights against those who would seek to use their physical and cultural difference as a reason to hunt them, trap them, or kill them.

      It's all entertainment.

      Bigfoot does exist, he lives with Peter Pan and Pinocchio in fairy tale land. The only reason this "legend" is kept alive today is so that hucksters and companies like Nat Geo, Reality entertainment, Xive TV and other entertainment companies can produce so called "documentaries" on big foot because advertisers know the gullible public hungers for good mysteries. And if you have watched any (or God forbid all) of these shows over many years you know they are a total waste of time, never discover anything and ALWAYS end with trumped up "experts" asserting they are on the way to unraveling the mystery... maybe.

      Here is the latest example

      of the same "prototype" bigfoot documentary production that wants you to believe there is something new but leads you down dead end path after dead end and in the end, as always it ends with charlatans pontificating over the evidence (what evidence?) and the possibilities (pipe dreams!) . Everyone of these productions is exactly the same, you'd think people would know by now they are just being duped by this age old monster story, and that is all it is, not a big foot but just a big farce.

      Andre the Giant once consumed 120 beers in a 5 hour drinking session, he was a drinking machine.

      This photo is actually a photo of Andre The Giant who played the role of bigfoot in the six million dollar man.

      A correction on this article needs to be made. The first photo labeled bigfoot or sasquatch 1964 Michigan is actually from the 1970s. This photo is of the bigfoot who was involved in a brawl with Steve Austin or Lee Majors, which ever you prefer, in the tv show the six million dollar man. The scene is actually on youtube. You can watch it so that you can see for yourself that this is the same bigfoot whos identity is in question.

      I think if bigfoot is real that it needs to be protected too but then again I don't think they need us to protect them, I think they can protect themselves well. I wrote a hub about sasquatch too

      maybe you will find it interesting.

      I sure hope that they prove BF is real. :)

      Well, it's about time they're existence was acknowledged. No surprise the BF are offshoots of homo sapiens either. Could we have the whole ape, primate thing backwards, in other words did they descend from us, not the other way round? Adamantly agree they should receive full protection and understanding. If studied and handled with wisdom and compassion, these beings of the forest may reveal to humanity many amazing things- amazing things indeed.
