Bigfoot Spotted In Idaho?

By Alyssa Newcomb | ABC News Blogs – Thu, May 31, 2012 11:05 AM EDT

VIDEO: http://news.yahoo.com/video#video=29519203

A group of high school students may have come close to Bigfoot during a class project in the Idaho wilderness.
 
A dark, mysterious creature was caught on tape for a few seconds near Mink Creek before it retreated into the treeline.
 
"It just didn't look human-like. I don't know what that is, it's not a bear, it's not a moose or anything. It was big and bulky and black," said the student who captured the video. He spoke to ABC News' Idaho affiliate but did not want want to be identified on camera.
 
The students climbed to where they saw the potential Sasquatch and photographed the large footprints it left in the dirt.
 
"I'm not going to say yes it was a Bigfoot or no it wasn't, because I don't know., and nobody knows," the student told the news station.
 
The Animal Planet show "Finding Bigfoot"  plans to visit Pocatello, Idaho in June to investigate claims that Bigfoot could be in the area.

There is a long correlation between bigfoot and ufo's that go back centuries. Here is a really good account of the 2 working together.

Is Bigfoot Possibly an Alien Entity?

Rather than being a missing link between man and the apes, Bigfoot may possibly be an alien entity. This intriguing possibility is derived from evidence in several solid UFO cases.

The earliest clues date back to 1888, when a cattleman described an encounter with friendly Indians in Humboldt County, California. They led him to a cave where he saw a hefty humanoid creature covered in long, shiny black hair, with no neck, sitting cross-legged.

One Indian told him three of these "Crazy Bears" had been cast out of a small moon that dropped from the sky and landed.The "moon" then ascended back into the air. So it's highly likely the "Crazy Bears" were really Bigfoots, and the "moon," a spacecraft.

Now fast-forward almost 100 years to 1973... and Mrs. Reafa Heitfield. She and her 13-year-old son were sleeping in a trailer in Cincinnati, Ohio on the morning of October 21. Reafa arose at 2:30 a.m. to quench her thirst, and noticed strange lights in the adjoining parking lot. Looking out the window, her attention was drawn, in particular, to an inexplicable cone of light, shaped like a huge bubble umbrella -- about seven feet in diameter.

Nearby she spotted a grayish, ape-like creature with a large, downward angled snout, no neck and a sizable waist. Moving slowly, it then entered into the light. About five minutes later, both apeman and UFO disappeared.

Another dramatic incident occurred a few days later on October 25, 1973. A group of farmers in Fayette County, Pennsylvania caught sight of a dome-shaped UFO that was brightly lit and about 100 feet in diameter. As the locals drove toward it, they saw a pair of gargantuan creatures covered with thick, matted hair, luminescent green eyes and long arms that dangled below their knees.

A farmer's son fired a gun shot at the creatures, one of which raised its right hand in the air. At that very moment, the UFO disappeared. Then, the two Bigfoots escaped into the woods and were never seen again.

Dairy farmer William Bosak of Frederic, Wisconsin was returning from a co-op meeting about 10:30 p.m. on December 9, 1974, when he nearly slammed into a globular UFO on the road in front of him, its bottom half enshrouded in fog.

Inside the visible transparent dome was a six-foot-tall ape-like creature with reddish-brown fur covering its body (except for the face) and distinctive pointed ears. It appeared to be operating a control panel. As Bosak passed by, the object suddenly arose and disappeared.

In August,1976, after a series of UFO sightings around Rutland, British Columbia, Canada, several men and their children saw a hairy ape-like entity, six to seven feet tall roaming about a mountainside. They also found a clump of hair that was sent to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for identification. Laboratory analysis confirmed it was primate hair, but, significantly, it could not be matched to any known species on earth!

Perhaps the Bigfoot creatures are UFO pilots, landing on earth for exploratory purposes. Or, conceivably, higher level ETs are leaving behind some specimens as "guinea pigs" to test our environment for long-term survival. Or, possibly,these Bigfoots are criminal entities being deposited on Earth as a form of cosmic deportation!

I’ve never seen that connection before. But I think that’s it. In a way, Bigfoot DID go public in 1977 via George Lucas. They showed us the narrative 35 years ago.

Bigfeet (plural form  :D) stories go back farther than 1977. The famous film of bogfoot is from 1964, and the native Americans have stories stretching back thousands of years, and dont forget the Yeti stories of Asia are the same.

That's the 1967 Patterson/Gimlin film.

The '64 event is for Caddo, TX.

http://americanbigfootsociety.weebly.com/resource-bigfoot-on-film.html (http://americanbigfootsociety.weebly.com/resource-bigfoot-on-film.html)

I've seen a show that examined that Patterson footage from several areas, including body mechanics and the overall differences in human walking versus how the creature walks. I'ved messed with similar software that they used on that show, and much of this is the same as digitalyl re-creating a walking character animation for a video game. You MUST know how the walk cycle works and how the overall skeleton moves with each step or it will really stand out as being wrong. The human eye is very perceptive, so it's really hard to recreate a walking sequence of any type, and make it look real to the human eye. That's why any good animation uses MOCAP files of real movement of people, etc.

You watch that footage and try to tell me that thing walking is somehow a manufactured effort, or not how it really walks. That walking motion is as smooth as a real walk is. Whatever it is, it's walking naturally, in a natural gate. Once that is confirmed, then you can look at the stride distances, etc. to give you the general size it must be to cover the strides measured. Same with depth of foot prints tells you, pretty close, weight of the item that left the indentation. Some basic math formulas, and bingo, you can determine the size that thing is, and overlap it with a natural human walk sequence. It's not even close. The physiology is very different.

I'm just sayin' God knows.

you need to listen to the coast to coast program above. This whole death bed confession isnt all its cracked up to be. Im not saying the vid is 100% accurate or not, im just saying this goes back to before Star Wars, and if i remember the CtoC interview, one of the people that helped come up with the wookie design was one of the people involved with the 64' video. Id have to listen to it again but its around the last hour i think.

2h 21m Lyle Blackburn: The cover, the movie poster for The Legend of Boggy Creek was painted by a gentleman named Ralph McQuarrie. And that was his first movie poster. Charles Pierce found him and gave him the opportunity. Well, McQuarrie went on to design and create all the famous Star Wars characters for George Lucas. So, I found it kind of coincidental or ironic that the wookie or Chewbacca was in Star Wars and McQuarrie had painted that Fouke monster, which is a similar Bigfoot-type creature on the famous poster.

Quote
Philip Morris
In 2002, Philip Morris of Morris Costumes (a North Carolina-based company offering costumes, props and stage products) claimed that he made a gorilla costume that was used in the Patterson film. Morris says he discussed his role in the hoax privately in the 1980s but first admitted it publicly on August 16, 2002, on Charlotte, North Carolina, radio station WBT-AM.[50] Morris claims he was reluctant to expose the hoax earlier for fear of harming his business: giving away a performer's secrets, he said, would be widely regarded as disreputable.[51]

Morris said that he sold an ape suit to Patterson via mail-order in 1967, thinking it was going to be used in what Patterson described as a "prank"[52] (ordinarily the gorilla suits he sold were used for a popular side-show routine that depicted an attractive woman changing into a gorilla.) After the initial sale, Morris said that Patterson telephoned him asking how to make the "shoulders more massive"[53] and the "arms longer."[54] Morris says he suggested that whoever wore the suit should wear wide football-type shoulder pads and hold sticks in his hands within the suit. His story was also printed in the Charlotte Observer.[55]

As for the creature's walk, Morris said:

The Bigfoot researchers say that no human can walk that way in the film. Oh, yes they can! When you're wearing long clown's feet, you can't place the ball of your foot down first. You have to put your foot down flat. Otherwise, you'll stumble. Another thing, when you put on the gorilla head, you can only turn your head maybe a quarter of the way. And to look behind you, you've got to turn your head and your shoulders and your hips. Plus, the shoulder pads in the suit are in the way of the jaw. That's why the Bigfoot turns and looks the way he does in the film. He has to twist his entire upper body.[56]

Morris' wife and business partner Amy had vouched for her husband and claims to have helped frame the suit.[56] Morris offered no evidence apart from testimony to support his account.

That's bs! The show I saw exlained very clearly about the walk cycle being very different than a humans. What I saw, no human could walk that way. The stride, length of the legs don't match, at all. And they don't mention the slight issue with the right leg of the Bigfoot too. There's an issue with the right thigh if I remember correctly, as if a muscle is buldging funny, like an injury or something. I don't remember exactly what they said, but when they did, it was obvious what they were talking about.

Morris' story above is total bs. He's just looking for media attention. One of the biggest urban legend stories in the US, pulled off in '67, and this guy doesn't say anything till 2002? Whatever. Notice he runs a costume shop! Sorry, he's a fraud looking for modern business.

ya, thats the story im talking about that has come out as BS. You can see in the video that bigfoot turns his head all the way around, than his body to get a better look. He doesnt turn his whole body to look back. Just that alone proves the guys story is bogus.

Established Scientists Searching For Bigfoot

Over the years, hundreds of sightings of these supposedly mythical beasts have been recorded around the world by the public and so-called cryptozoologists, who scour the world in search of evidencefor their existence. “Proof” comes in many forms, from fuzzy photographs and shaky videos to plaster casts of footprints and tufts of hair. But, as yet, none of these encounters has provided any conclusive evidence and cryptozoology remains a field largely disregarded by science. Instead, with a knowing look and a snigger, “sightings” of “cryptids” are explained away as hoaxes, existing species or the products of over excited imaginations. So it makes it all the more extraordinary that established scientists would become involved in a search that, on the face of it, looks like it could help to prove whether or not these undocumented creatures exist. But, in May of this year, researchers from Switzerland and the UK did just that when they launched the Oxford-Lausanne Collateral Hominid Project.

Unknown “Creature” Captured On Trail Camera

Unknown “creature” captured on trail camera

An international team has returned from investigating the creature known as Sasquatch with a clear image that two world experts have been unable to identify.

The image and accompanying 1 sec film clip was taken by a trail camera in the team’s camp at approx. 02:30 on Tuesday 4th September 2012 in the North Cascades National Park, Washington State, an area renowned for Sasquatch activity.

The team spent two weeks in the area and although they experienced a plethora of “associated” Sasquatch activity, rock-throwing, screams, unexplained noises, they objectively could not say what these incidents were caused by. The image, however, shows an unidentifiable object situated between an extinguished campfire and two team members who were sleeping outside unaware.

The image and film clip were sent to Jeff Meldrum, Professor of Anatomy and Anthropology at Idaho State University and to Ian Redmond O.B.E., a field biologist for investigation. Despite thorough analysis they have been unable to come to any conclusion on the evidence presented – but neither have they disregarded it as fake or immediately explainable.

Notes for Editors:

Extreme Expeditions Ltd (EE Ltd) who organised and participated in this expedition comprises field researchers Adam Davies and Andrew Sanderson, who have conducted worldwide research into unknown creatures for the last 14 years, most notably the Orang Pendek in Sumatra.

The team joined with Lori Simmons, whose father, the late Donnald Wallace researched Sasquatch in this area over a period of 28 years, an area she regularly continues to investigate.

The remainder of the field team comprised: Dave Archer, who has been on a number of field expeditions and saw the Orang Pendek in 2009 – one of only a handful of Westerners to have seen this creature in the last 50 years. Tim de Frel, on his second expedition with EE Ltd. Jackie Tonks and Simon Mellor are personal friends on their first expedition with EE Ltd.

It looks like to me somebody crouched down on their left knee (the left foot raises up), wearing a hooded overcoat of some type and has either just a flashlight, or a rifle with a flashlight attachment, and they are scanning the woods to the right and away from the camera, with their back right side to the camera.

If that isn't one of them, then they caught somebody in their camp.

Sasquatch Hair Found In Russian Cave 'Belonged To Unknown Mammal Closely Related To Man', Say Laboratories

Astonishing claims were made in Russia today that DNA tests on suspected 'Yeti hair' reveals the existence of 'an unknown mammal closely related to man'. The 'tests' were conducted on samples of hair found in a Siberian cave during an international expedition last year. 'We had ten samples of hair to study, and have concluded that they belong to mammal, but not a human,' said Professor Valentin Sapunov, of the Russian State Hydrometeorological Institute. Nor did the hair belong to any known animal from the region such as a bear, wolf, or goat, he claimed. Analysis was conducted in the Russia and US and 'agreed the hair came from a human-like creature which is not a Homo sapien yet is more closely related to man than a monkey', said the Siberian Times, citing claims made on a regional government website in Russia in the area where the hair samples were allegedly found. It stated that long-awaited scientific tests were conducted on their hair at two institutions in Russia and one in Idaho in the US.

Hikers take flight when what they thought was a bear resembles Bigfoot

By: Pete Thomas, GrindTV.com

When the black bear you think you're looking at from a safe distance suddenly stands and begins to resemble bigfoot, and that creature stares directly at you, how do you react? The hikers who captured the accompanying footage recently in Utah's Provo Canyon seemed to act appropriately: They bolted through the woods, with the camera still running, to get as far away from the creature as possible. "We ran straight to the car after that, leaving our tent and everything behind. It's probably all still up there," states Beard Card, the YouTube user who posted the video. This is one of the more realistic Bigfoot escapades in some time.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ss_Gm_N5C48&feature=player_embedded

Naturally, skeptics are analyzing the video in the hopes of finding an explanation. Yet even healthy cynics are pretty impressed with what they see. They note that the witnesses don't appear to be acting. If they were, the skeptics say, they'd likely be a lot more vocal, and fall into the overacting trap. (Watch this video for full breakdown.) They also didn't stick around to get a great shot, which also rings of a very natural reaction, but didn't help when it came to capturing a better image.

Nevertheless, the shot of what clearly looks like the animal's big broad arms is extremely compelling, which is why Max Roth of Fox 13 caught up with Beard Card to talk about the incredible encounter.

Card told Roth how they were standing there for a good chunk of time even before recording what they believed to be a bear at the time, while he was trying to get the camera to work. During their exchange, Card hit on their reaction. Here are a few excerpts.
CARD: "But when it stood up and looked at us--and we assumed it was a bear up to that point--but, when it stood up and looked at us, it was this massive animal. We don't know what it was. I mean, none of us believe in Bigfoot, so. ...We've talked about it over and over again since Monday when it happened and all of us are positive that thing wasn't a bear."

ROTH: "You're not a Bigfoot guy?

CARD: "Nope...none of us have ever believed in that kind of thing."

ROTH: "So what do you think it was?"

CARD: "I don't know!...We don't know what it was...I don't know if Bigfoot exists or not but that was a huge animal."

Below is an enhanced version of the video.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uagEmnUoh9c&feature=player_embedded

Whether this is an elaborate prank, or something really scary we don't know for sure. But for the full interview with Card, and more debate on the incident, it's hard to beat the Bigfoot Evidence blog, where believers and non-believers routinely square off.

Idaho scientist seeks to launch aerial Bigfoot search with blimp

An Idaho scientist shrugging off skeptical fellow scholars in his quest for evidence of Bigfoot has turned his sights skyward, with plans to float a blimp over the U.S. mountain West in search of the mythic, ape-like creature.

Idaho State University has approved the unusual proposal of faculty member Jeffrey Meldrum, an anatomy and anthropology professor ridiculed by some peers for past research of a being whose existence is widely disputed by mainstream science.

Now Meldrum is seeking to raise $300,000-plus in private donations to build the remote-controlled dirigible, equip it with a thermal-imaging camera and send it aloft in hopes of catching an aerial glimpse of Bigfoot, also known as sasquatch.

Meldrum, author of "Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science," said the undertaking represents a giant leap in the quest for an animal he believes may have descended from a giant ape that once inhabited Asia and crossed the Bering land bridge to North America.

"The challenge with any animal that is rare, solitary, nocturnal and far-ranging in habitat is to find them and observe them in the wild; this technology provides for that," he said.

Decades of alleged sightings, elaborate hoaxes and the discovery of huge footprints in the forests of the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere have led to beliefs that Bigfoot is a man-like ape, an ape-like man or a figment of the popular imagination.

Most scholars discount Bigfoot as a phenomenon borne of myth and perpetuated by a mix of fakery and misidentification of real animals. They contend that science demands a high standard of evidence that has not been achieved in the case of sasquatch.

No fossils or other physical evidence has been unearthed to suggest that the largest primate ever known migrated from Asia to the Americas, and no Bigfoot has been captured or killed, skeptics argue.

"There is no Bigfoot," said University of Iowa anthropologist Russell Ciochon.

Believers describe an enormous, fur-bearing figure that walks upright in the remote high country of mostly Western states.

'Well-manicured' Bigfoot?
The blimp-based search - dubbed the Falcon Project - was the brainchild of William Barnes, a Utah man who said he encountered Bigfoot in 1997 in Northern California.

Barnes said he watched an immense, hairy creature that was otherwise "well-manicured" approach his tent before striding up a rocky ledge. Years later, he approached Meldrum, well known in Bigfoot circles, about his idea for an airship expedition.

Barnes and Meldrum hope the Falcon Project will take flight next spring. They envision a months-long expedition that will survey swaths of remote forest across parts of the Pacific Northwest as well as northern tiers of California and Utah.

The aerial evidence is to be dispatched to teams on the ground that would seek to trace evidence or "try to make contact," Meldrum said.

Financial support for the venture has been slow in coming, with Meldrum failing so far to raise a single dollar for the effort. But he told Reuters he was in talks with two cable channels vying for rights to produce a new weekly TV series following the Falcon Project from its inception.

Indigenous peoples from Asia to North America possess lore about colossal creatures akin to apes that live in extreme alpine environments, shun contact with humans and are variously identified as the yeti, Bigfoot, the wild man or mountain man, said William Willard, professor emeritus of cultural anthropology at Washington State University.

While powerful, those myths have no scientific validity, he said.

19th Century Mongolian Painting Shows Two Yeti's Tearing A Man Apart

During Assistant Director Jeff Meuse’s exhibiting of traveling displays from the International Cryptozoology Museum in New York City, he visited the Rubin Museum of Art. While there, he discovered intriguing imagery on a cloth painting. Playing a “Where’s Waldo” game, Meuse and his assistant, the ICM’s coordinator of special events, searched the entire Himalayan art museum looking for signs of Yetis. Finally, he found one example. The painting was dated to the 19th century from Mongolia. The imagery is said to be “a depiction of the universe,” showing Mount Meru. Mount Meru is a sacred mountain in Hindu, a giant location with several mystical, mythical, and heavenly aspects. A handful of western scholars have identified Mount Meru with the Pamirs, northeast of Kashmir, according to these sources. In a corner of the Rubin’s Mount Meru painting is shown some Yetis. They are tearing apart a human...

'Bigfoot' Is Part Human, DNA Study Claims

11/27/12

Genetic testing confirms the legendary Bigfoot is a human relative that arose some 15,000 years ago — at least according to a press release issued by a company called DNA Diagnostics detailing supposed work by a Texas veterinarian.

The release and alleged study by Melba S. Ketchum also suggests such cryptids had sex with modern human females that resulted in hairy hominin hybrids, but the scientific community is dubious about her claim.

"A team of scientists can verify that their five-year long DNA study, currently under peer-review, confirms the existence of a novel hominin hybrid species, commonly called 'Bigfoot' or 'Sasquatch,' living in North America," the release reads. "Researchers' extensive DNA sequencing suggests that the legendary Sasquatch is a human relative that arose approximately 15,000 years ago."

For her study, Ketchum obtained three "whole nuclear genomes from purported Sasquatch samples. The genome sequencing shows that Sasquatch mtDNA is identical to modern Homo sapiens, but Sasquatch nuDNA is a novel, unknown hominin related to Homo sapiens and other primate species." (Mitochondrial DNA, or mtDNA, is the DNA that resides in the cell's energy-producing structures, and is typically passed down from mothers, while nuclear DNA, nuDNA, resides in the cells' nuclei and is passed down from both parents to offspring.)

As early as 1910, Ivanov lectured on the possibility of crossing humans and apes, citing artificial insemination as the method of choice due to prevailing ethical objections to, well, interspecies partying, for lack of a better term.



Yet, in 2005, the Scottish newspaper The Scotsman reported the following:

The Soviet dictator Josef Stalin ordered the creation of Planet of the Apes-style warriors by crossing humans with apes, according to recently uncovered secret documents. Moscow archives show that in the mid-1920s Russia's top animal breeding scientist, Ilya Ivanov, was ordered to turn his skills from horse and animal work to the quest for a super-warrior.

Mexican 'ape woman' buried after 150 years
2/12/13

SINALOA DE LEYVA, Mexico (AP) — An indigenous Mexican woman put on display in Victorian-era Europe because of a rare genetic condition that covered her face in thick hair has been buried in her home state in a ceremony that ends one of the best-known episodes from an era when live human beings were treated as collectible specimens.
 
With her hairy face and body, jutting jaw and other deformities, Julia Pastrana became known as "ape woman" after she was taken to the U.S. by showman Theodore Lent in 1854, when she was 20. She died in childbirth in 1860 and her body ended up at the University of Oslo, Norway.
 
After government and private requests to return her body, the university shipped her remains to the state of Sinaloa, where they were laid to rest Tuesday afternoon.

DNA Report Proves Bigfoot Is Real Say 11 Scientists Of 5 Year Study

team of eleven scientists with expertise in genetics, forensics, pathology, biochemistry, and biophysics has sequenced three whole nuclear genomes from a novel, contemporary species of hominin in North America. The study, “Novel North American Hominins, Next Generation Sequencing of Three Whole Genomes and Associated Studies,” which analyzed DNA from a total of 111 high-quality samples submitted from across the continent, appears in the inaugural issue of Denovo: Journal of Science (http://www.denovojournal.com) on February 13.

Frame 352 from the Patterson-Gimlin film, alleged by Roger Patterson and Robert Gimlin to show a Bigfoot, and by some others to show a man in an ape suit.

The team, led by Dr. Melba S. Ketchum, DVM, of DNA Diagnostics in Nacogdoches, TX, sequenced the three whole nuclear genomes using the next-generation Illumina HiSeq 2000 platform at University of Texas, Southwestern from a tissue sample, a saliva sample, and a blood sample. The three genomes all attained Q30 quality scores above 88 on the Illumina platform, significantly higher than the platform average of 85, indicating highly-purified, single-source DNA with no contamination for each sample. The three Sasquatch genomes align well with one-another and show substantial homology to primate sequences.
In addition to the three nuclear genomes, Ketchum’s team also sequenced 20 whole and 10 partial mitochondrial genomes from the Sasquatch samples. In contrast to the nuDNA results, the Sasquatch mtDNA was fully modern Homo sapiens, indicating that the species is a hybrid cross between modern Homo sapiens in the maternal lineage and an unknown hominin male progenitor.The paper is entitled “Novel North American Hominins, Next Generation Sequencing of Three Whole Genomes and Associated Studies.”  by authors: Ketchum MS, Wojtkiewicz PW, Watts AB, Spence DW, Holzenburg AK, Toler DG, Prychitko TM, Zhang F, Bollinger S, Shoulders R, Smith R.  DeNovo. 13 February 2013.Specimens yielding DNA were obtained, purportedly from elusive hominins in North America called Sasquatch. Sequencing and genotyping were performed in addition to histopathologic and electron microscopic examination of a large tissue sample.

Mitochondrial whole genomes were consistent with modern humans. In contrast, novel data were obtained when nuclear DNA was sequenced. Next generation whole genome sequencing was performed on three samples. Phylogeny trees generated showed homology to human chromosome 11 and to primate sequences. The data indicates that the Sasquatch has human mitochondrial DNA but possesses nuclear DNA that is a structural mosaic consisting of human and novel non-human DNA.
The team of scientists can verify that their 5-year long DNA study confirms the existence of a novel hominin hybrid species, commonly called “Bigfoot” or “Sasquatch,” living in North America. Researchers’ extensive DNA sequencing suggests that the legendary Sasquatch is a human relative that arose approximately 15,000 years ago as a hybrid cross of modern Homo sapiens with an unknown primate species.The study was conducted by a team of experts in genetics, forensics, imaging and pathology, led by Dr. Melba S. Ketchum of Nacogdoches, TX. In response to recent interest in the study, Dr. Ketchum can confirm that her team has sequenced 3 complete Sasquatch nuclear genomes and determined the species is a human hybrid:“Our study has sequenced 20 whole mitochondrial genomes and utilized next generation sequencing to obtain 3 whole nuclear genomes from purported Sasquatch samples. The genome sequencing shows that Sasquatch mtDNA is identical to modern Homo sapiens, but Sasquatch nuDNA is a novel, unknown hominin related to Homo sapiens and other primate species. Our data indicate that the North American Sasquatch is a hybrid species, the result of males of an unknown hominin species crossing with female Homo sapiens.

Hominins are members of the taxonomic grouping Hominini, which includes all members of the genus Homo. Genetic testing has already ruled out Homo neanderthalis and the Denisova hominin as contributors to Sasquatch mtDNA or nuDNA. “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,” explains Ketchum.

“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. We describe it as a mosaic of human and novel non-human sequence. Further study is needed and is ongoing to better characterize and understand Sasquatch nuclear DNA.”

Ketchum is a veterinarian whose professional experience includes 27 years of research in genetics, including forensics. Early in her career she also practiced veterinary medicine, and she has previously been published as a participant in mapping the equine genome. She began testing the DNA of purported Sasquatch hair samples 5 years ago.

Ketchum calls on public officials and law enforcement to immediately recognize the Sasquatch as an indigenous people:

“Genetically, the Sasquatch are a human hybrid with unambiguously modern human maternal ancestry. 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.”

Is this evidence of Bigfoot? Police baffled by giant decomposed foot found in US wood

(http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2013/04/22/article-2312876-196DC0BF000005DC-430_308x185.jpg)

It sounds like the plot of a childhood adventure movie.
 
Two young boys stumble across a giant, decomposing foot in the woods, leaving local police to wonder whether the grisly find is evidence of the fabled Bigfoot.
 
But that's exactly what has happened in Massachusetts, U.S., where tests are being carried out on the mysterious remains amid speculation over exactly what kind of creature it belonged to

According to a report on Discovery.com, the boys found the decomposing foot in woods in Quincy last month

Baffled officers at the Lakeville Police Department sent the foot to medical examiners to see if they can shed any more light on its origin.

 
'On March 29, Sgt Steven Leanues picked up what appears to be a decomposed foot that the boys found in the woods off Pantheon Road,' it said, citing the Patriot Ledger newspaper.
 
'Police Chief Frank Alvihiera sent it to the medical examiner, who determined it is not human, although it appears to have five toes.'

Also known as Sasquatch, Bigfoot is the name given to the hairy, ape-like creature that some believe live in forests in North America.
 
Sightings of the beast have been reported over decades by people who have pointed variously to mysterious sightings, inexplicably huge footprints, and giant nest-like structures as evidence that the elusive creature does in fact exist.

 
Believers who claim to have spotted the legendary creature - which was immortalised in the 1987 film Bigfoot and the Hendersons - say it stands between 6ft and 10ft tall, is covered in reddish brown fur, and has a distinctive, unpleasant odour.
 
While fans are likely to seize upon the find as further proof of the beast's existence, sceptics might predict the tests will reveal the foot belonged not to Bigfoot, but to a big bear.

Unmanned aerial drone to search for Bigfoot

Legendary creature faces $10 million bounty on its head


The hunt for Bigfoot is getting serious now.
 
At the same time a television network is offering a $10 million bounty – guaranteed by British insurance company Lloyd’s of London – for proof of the creature’s existence, a professor in Idaho is preparing to send an unmanned drone to the skies to seek out the elusive legend.
 
According to an Idaho Mountain Express report and press releases from the university itself, Idaho State University Professor Jeff Meldrum, author of “Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science,” is in the final fundraising stages of what is called “The Falcon Project,” which will use a remote-controlled airship to conduct flyovers in what he calls “Bigfoot territory.”
 
“These unmanned drones, I believe, are the next step in proving the nature of these creatures,” said Meldrum.
 
“The aircraft will offer stealth and maneuverability, allowing us to peer directly down through the forest canopy,” Meldrum explained through a university news report. “It is essentially silent and can fly at considerable altitude, surveying the forest floor from the night sky, allowing us to track and photograph a target once it is identified, without disturbing it.
 
“The Falcon Project takes the search for sasquatch to the next level,” he continued. “Aerial survey with coordinated on-the-ground verification has potential to conclusively identify sasquatch and furthermore facilitate a more penetrating investigation into the nature of this mysterious species.”

This is the only place that word is used. Not sure how they get that from that verse.

"The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest." Isaiah 34:14 (KJB)

According to 1828 Websters...

Quote
satyr

SA'TYR, n. [l. satyrus; Gr. a monkey, a fawn.]

    In mythology, a sylvan deity or demi-god, represented as a monster, half man and half goat, having horns on his head, a hairy body, with the feet and tail of a goat. Satyrs are usually found in the train of Bacchus, and have been distinguished for lasciviousness and riot. They have been represented as remarkable for their piercing eyes and keen raillery.

The primary usage of that word outside of scripture refers to a Greek mythology creature. Doesn't sound like any "Bigfoot" I've heard of.

The context of those verses in that chapter fit what Websters says. There is no other bible verse to compare, so there it is. Ask God.

Looking for Bigfoot? Follow this map --others have seen 'em there

Reported sightings of Bigfoot — the legendary apelike creature that's been a favorite of cryptozoologists for decades — have abounded for decades. Now, for the first time, someone has created a map showing the places where alleged Bigfoot sightings have occurred.

Joshua Stevens, a doctoral candidate at Pennsylvania State University, used data compiled by the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO), which tries to document "the presence of an animal, probably a primate, that exists today in very low population densities," according to the group's website.

Stevens converted the BFRO data and, using geographic-information software, plotted 3,313 data points showing where people have claimed to see Bigfoot (aka Sasquatch, Skunk Ape, Yeti, Skookum or dozens of other names). [Rumor or Reality: Tales of 10 Creatures of Cryptozoology]

"Right away, you can see that sightings are not evenly distributed," Stevens said on his website. "There are distinct regions where sightings are incredibly common, despite a very sparse population. On the other hand, in some of the most densely populated areas, Sasquatch sightings are exceedingly rare. The terrain and habitat likely play a major role in the distribution of reports."

The map, which uses reports from 1921 to 2012, shows a plethora of supposed sightings in the Pacific Northwest, the Ohio River Valley, central Florida, the Sierra Nevada mountain range and the Mississippi River Valley.

Stevens' analysis also includes a chronological timeline showing a rise in reported sightings in the late 1970s (perhaps coinciding with the release of several B-movies about the mythical creature). Another spike in reported Bigfoot sightings occurred between 2000 and 2009.

Despite his exhaustive analysis of the BFRO data, Stevens stops short of giving the information more credibility than it deserves. "Ultimately, I'm not convinced there's a descendant of (giant ape) Gigantopithecus playing hide-and-seek in the Pacific Northwest," Stevens said. "But if respectable folks like … primatologist Jane Goodall believe there's something more to the myth, I think it's at least worth putting on the map."

Goodall, in an interview that was broadcast on NPR in 2006, said, "I'm sure that they exist." The famed primate researcher also confessed, "Well, I'm a romantic, so I always wanted that."

A handful of other academics, including Jeffrey Meldrum, professor of anatomy and anthropology at Idaho State University in Pocatello, have taken a scientific interest in the legend of Bigfoot, but to date, no hard evidence of any hominid or apelike creature has been substantiated.

All alleged samples of Bigfoot hair, for example, have turned out to be from elk, bears or cows. Photos, audio and film footage have been determined to be inconclusive or hoaxes, and no bodily remains have ever been found — despite the fact that there would have to be hundreds or thousands of the creatures in existence in order to maintain the "species."

But Bigfoot enthusiasts will no doubt continue their search undaunted — and now, thanks to Stevens' map, they know where to look.

Does this image show TWO Bigfoot creatures? Woodsman photographed 'moving beast' in Pennsylvania… but there is no sign of it now
 Woodsman spots what appears to be two creatures lurking in the woods
 He said creature was bigger than a bear with a different body shape
 But when he returned to the exact spot there was no sign of them
 It comes as researchers say they have DNA proof Bigfoot is real


You wait years for a decent sighting of the legendary ape-like creature known as Bigfoot, and then two come along at once.

The fascinating photographs, taken just two weeks ago near Bradford, Pennsylvania, appear to show a pair of Bigfoots, or perhaps that should be Bigfeet, wandering through the trees.

Keen hiker John Stoneman spotted the seven-foot-tall beasts just yards from a main road through trees in Kinzua State Park.

Mr Stoneman, 57, had been returning from the Kinzua Bridge Fall Festival with his girlfriend when the pair spotted the mysterious shape moving in the forest.

He quickly grabbed his camera and fired off these amazing shots as they slowed the car down and edged along the road.

Traffic backing-up behind his vehicle forced John to move on but not before he got what he believes is some of the best evidence yet of the existence of the legendary North American creature.

Mr Stoneman, from Bradford, PA, said: 'I'm a sceptic myself, I'm not a believer, but this was not a bear and you can see fur on it.

New Bigfoot Evidence Screened as Expert Claims Proof of Existence

video: http://gma.yahoo.com/blogs/abc-blogs/bigfoot-evidence-screened-expert-claims-proof-existence-170135552--abc-news-tech.html?vp=1

Bigfoot is real, and now at least one scientist claims there is proof.
 
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.
 
The footage, which came from a similar effort dubbed The Erickson Project, led by Adrian Erickson, showed 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 a $500,000 analysis of 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.
 
"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.
 
Ketchum, who was initially a skeptic, says she implemented strict protocols as DNA was extracted from the collected samples.
 
"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," Ketchum said in February of the research.
 
"Those hair samples that could not be identified as known animal or human were subsequently screened using DNA testing, beginning with sequencing of mitochondrial DNA followed by sequencing nuclear DNA to determine where these individuals fit in the 'tree of life,'" she said.
 
In total, 111 specimens of purported Sasquatch hair, blood, skin, and other tissue types were analyzed for the Sasquatch Genome Project's study. The samples were submitted from 34 different hominin research sites in 14 U.S. states and two Canadian provinces.
 
At Tuesday's press conference, Dennis Pfoul, the group's project manager, showed footage of what he believes belongs to a Sasquatch in the snow in Colorado.
 
"We've all had experiences that have changed our lives, I mean, literally shook the foundation of what we believe in," Pfoul said at the news conference.
 
Funding for the Sasquatch Genome Project comes from Erikson and entrepreneur Wally Hersom, according to Ketchum. The Erikson Project has in the past teased footage of supposed Sasquatch sightings, notable in a November 2012 trailer for "Sasquatch: The Quest." Watch the trailer here.

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 said.
 
Disotell says that he has disproven samples from being what they’re claimed to be many times, including debunking a yeti, a chupacabra, and a sasquatch eight times, including once on ScyFy’s “Joe Rogan Questions Everything.”
 
“You can’t prove something doesn’t exist,” he said. “You can prove that every sample you’re brought isn’t what they’re claiming, But you can’t disprove this. It will go on forever. We’ll always have it.”

Scientist Says ‘Yeti’ – Russian ‘Bigfoot’ – Is Real

University’s Bryan Sykes is already well-known for his scientific research on human ancestry. But now professor Sykes says there is real evidence that the legendary “Yeti” – the Russian “Bigfoot” – is actually real.

After a yearlong investigation, the British geneticist claims to have matched the DNA collected from hairs purportedly from  Himalayan Yetis. These mythic creatures, also known as the “Abominable Snowmen,” is in the opinion of Sykes a breed of Arctic bear that lived tens of thousands of years ago that is some sort of hybrid of polar bears and brown bears. Interestingly, the term “Yeti” itself comes from the Tibetan compound word Ya-che-tre meaning “rocky dreaded bear”.

“All my colleagues think I’m taking a risk in doing this, but I’m curious, and I am in a position to actually do something to answer the questions,” Sykes said.

Tom Gilbert, a Natural History Museum of Denmark professor of paleogenomics, unconnected to Sykes or his research, told The Associated Press that the research is a “reasonable explanation” for such sightings.

One sample that Sykes uses was a cluster of hairs claimed to be from a mummified Yeti in the northern Indian region of Ladakh. The sample was taken by a French mountaineer who claims to have been shown the body some 40 years ago. Another sample is from a hair found 800 miles to the east, in Bhutan.

Sykes findings will be the focus of “Bigfoot Files,” a documentary series on Britain’s Channel 4 to be aired this Sunday evening.

Man shot during bigfoot hunt in Oklahoma

CATOOSA, Okla., Nov. 5 (UPI) -- Authorities in Oklahoma said one person was shot and three were arrested in an apparent sasquatch hunting mishap.

Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton said Omar Pineda, 21, shot his friend in the back accidentally while the two were out hunting for the legendary ape, but it took a lot of questioning before deputies could uncover the truth, KXTV, Oklahoma City, reported Tuesday.

Pineda, 21, was arrested for reckless conduct with a firearm and obstruction. The wounded man is expected to survive.

Perry Don James, 53, Pineda's father-in-law, was arrested after he threw Pineda's gun into a pond before it could be turned over to deputies. Walton said James told investigators he threw the gun into the water because he was a convicted felon and did not want the weapon on his property. He was charged with felony in possession of a firearm and destruction of evidence.

Lacey Jane Pineda, 22, Omar's wife, was arrested on an obstruction charge for allegedly telling deputies someone else had been shooting at her husband and his friend.

"If [they] had just been factual, upfront and truthful with us and explained that this was truly an accident, as strange as it might sound, we would have went ahead and investigated and probably nobody would have [gone] to jail," Walton said.

Walton said his department is not concerned about the sasquatch.

"To our knowledge, no bigfoot sightings in Rogers County," Walton said. "I think our focus is career criminals and thugs, and we're going to stay focused on that and let somebody else go after bigfoot."

Well sheriff, it's just as well you guys are focused on human criminals, because I'd hate to see law enforcement get involved in the hunt for Bigfoot, only to have them mess up the investigation by some trigger-happy cop going off in sheer terror for his life and shoot a Bigfoot claiming, it made a threatening move towards the officer!  ::)

'10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty' is latest in Bigfoot craze

OK, enough with the grainy footage, the first-person accounts and questionable evidence. Spike TV is looking to get to the bottom of this whole Bigfoot mystery once and for all with its next reality competition series, "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty."
 
Not surprisingly, the series, which premieres Jan. 10, hasn't attracted a whole lot of what you would call studious, academic types. Instead, you get a whole lot of angry, sexist rednecks yelling at each other in the woods. What better way to attract a notoriously camera-shy, quite probably mythical creature, than to have a bunch of people arguing in the woods?
 
But it makes for watchable TV.
 
Dean Cain hosts the show, which claims to offer the biggest cash prize in TV history. Though prize underwriters Lloyd's of London probably aren't losing much sleep over this one. The conditions for winning are definitive visual and DNA proof of Bigfoot's existence.
 
Two scientific experts will be on hand for the series: Todd Disotell, a biological anthropologist who runs New York University's molecular primatology lab and Natalia Reagan, a primatology expert.
 
According to Spike, DNA evidence will be processed using a mobile DNA lab. If no definitive proof is found, the group that presented the "most compelling evidence and theory" will be awarded a $100,000 research grant to keep searching.
 
The series is just the latest in Hollywood's recent preoccupation with Bigfoot. As The Times wrote last year, Bigfoot has been the subject of Animal Planet's series "Finding Bigfoot," the "iCarly" episode "iBelieve in Bigfoot," a horror film called "Exists" from "Blair Witch Project" director Eduardo Sanchez and the documentary film "Sasquatch: The Quest."
 
Any chance that $10-million prize will actually get awarded? Keep dreaming, Bigfoot lovers.

Cash is the only real motivator for things like this. Till there's money to support the effort to verify or disprove, people generally won't look because of the expense, and difficulty of looking around in hundreds of square miles of dense forests.

If it exists, the only reasonable way they will find it is with boots on the ground, cameras rolling. But cameras and equipment and the people to manage it all cost money.

This show however is suspect to at least a degree because they would need independent verification of their results, but getting an actual creature clearly on video could seal the deal.

Bigfoot Hunter Rick Dyer Claims He Killed The Hairy Beast And Will Take It On Tour

(http://i.huffpost.com/gen/1543652/thumbs/o-RICKDYERBIGFOOT-570.jpg?6)

Hunter Rick Dyer says he shot and killed a Bigfoot, and is now preparing to take its body on a tour of America

It's kind of a step up from the boy who cried wolf. In this case, it's a man who cried Bigfoot.

There's one big difference between this story and the many others where people claim to have seen the dubious tall, hairy creature that allegedly roams the forested regions of many countries. Dyer has previous Bigfoot-related credibility problems.

According to KSAT.com, Dyer has finally released an image of a beast he claimed to kill near San Antonio, Texas, in September 2012.

The only prior evidence Dyer has ever released until now about this incident was a short, grainy video that he claims shows a Bigfoot standing right outside of his tent near a wooded area on the outskirts of San Antonio. His website contains a haphazardly written account of the alleged Bigfoot encounter and subsequent killing of the animal. In fact, the date of the report is carelessly listed as "September 6, 20102."

Perhaps it's really about some distant future Bigfoot encounter.

In an interview from February 2013, Dyer said, "Bigfoot is 100 percent real. There's no question about that. I'm going to go down in history as the best Bigfoot tracker in the world," reported San Antonio's KSAT-TV.

Dyer baited that San Antonio Bigfoot.

"I nailed ... pork ribs from the WalMart down the street to the side of the tree, and low [sic] and behold, he came and started eating the pork ribs off the tree," Dyer said.

It was while the creature was allegedly feasting that Dyer supposedly grabbed his cell phone and videotaped him/her.

Here's that video, including enhancements that attempt to clarify the creature.

When the animal reportedly returned, Dyer claims he shot it. He then says he transported the dead Bigfoot to an undisclosed location.

Dyer now says that he had scientific tests performed on the hairy body, "from DNA tests to 3D optical scans to body scans. It is the real deal. It's Bigfoot and Bigfoot's here, and I shot it and now I'm proving it to the world."

But, where are those DNA and 3D optical test results?

The problem with all of this is a previous case where Dyer was apparently involved in what turned out to be a Bigfoot hoax in 2008. An alleged Bigfoot body -- that Dyer and an associate claimed to have -- was exposed as a rubber ape suit.

Credibility is supposed to be the most important thing if you're trying to convince the world of something as questionable as Bigfoot. And when you fool the public once, it's not easy to get back into their graces.

Dyer says he'll hold a news conference shortly to reveal the full Bigfoot body and test results.

Let's not hold our collective breath.

Oh, now he's saying he shot a young one too? So he murdered a baby Bigfoot, eh?  ::)

Officials need to jump on this one and publicly determine what the real deal is. With a body, no question DNA can be taken and tested.

Carnival sideshows are so last century!

This is not the first time Dyer has claimed to find Bigfoot's body. In 2008 Dyer claimed to media that he had a Bigfoot body that later turned out to be a rubber ape costume.

it's kind of hard to have credibility when you have a background like that. i hope he has found a real one, buts its more hope than reality.

that right there is what has me doubting this claim. Hes the guy from a couple years ago that said he had a bigfoot in a freezer, ran a whole bunch of tests and it was a rubber suit. Plus it just doesnt look right.

Mystery of the yeti deepens: DNA analysis reveals 'Abominable Snowman' hair does NOT belong to an unknown species of bear

    Latest research dismisses theories that yeti is an unknown species of bear
    Scientists had claimed DNA from 'yeti' hair found in the Himalaya matched the genetic sequence from a fossil polar bear that died 40,000 years ago
    They claimed that the hair may belong to an undiscovered species of bear
    The new research concludes the hair may belong to a common brown bear
    But scientists are baffled how hunters confused the fur with hair of a yeti


They have eluded explorers, hunters and scientists who have been searching the Himalayan mountains for the mysterious yeti for over a century.

Now it seems we are no closer to knowing what creature lies behind the mysterious sightings and footprints that have led to the legend of the Abominable Snowman.

A key piece of evidence that suggested many of the sightings were due to an unknown type of bear living in the Himalaya has now been ruled out.

Further Tests on Yeti Hair Produce Different Results Again
 

If you were planning a trip to the Himalayas to hunt for the unknown bear species that was recently believed to be the source of Yeti sightings, call your travel agent for a refund. It looks like those samples may have been identified and it’s not good for your reality show.

Remember the big controversial DNA study last year of hair samples thought to be from yetis, bigfoots and other crytids? That study, lead by Oxford geneticist Bryan Sykes, identified all the samples but two that came from the Himalayas. Further study matched the DNA of those samples with a 40,000-year-old polar bear fossil (Palaeolithic polar bear, Ursus maritimus). From that, they concluded a previously unknown hybrid bear species inhabits the area and is probably the real Yeti.

That conclusion was soon challenged by Ceiridwen Edwards and Ross Barnett, whose analysis determined that the DNA matched a present day polar bear and the mis-identification could have been the result of a deterioration of the sample.

Confused yet? Maybe I should say “confused Yeti” because the story doesn’t end there. According to a new report in the journal Zookeys, Eliécer E. Gutiérrez, a postdoctoral fellow at the Smithsonian Institution, and Ronald H. Pine, from the Biodiversity Institute & Natural History Museum at the University of Kansas, analyzed the samples AGAIN and they concluded that genetic variations of brown bears makes it impossible to determine whether the original are-they-or-are-they-not yeti hairs are from a brown bear or a polar bear. Based on that, they decided that they’re probably from a Himalayan brown bear since that’s where the samples came from – a conclusion that sounds logical but, based on past history of said samples, will probably be contested and analyzed yet again.

While studying the gene sequences of the six current bear species, Gutiérrez and Pine found one sequence from an Asian black bear from Japan that was very different than that of mainland Asian black bears, enough to warrant further study.

Asian black bear, Himalayan brown bear, Palaeolithic polar bear … blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yeti. The real news is that the samples are not from a Yeti.

The search continues.

Was 19th Century apewoman a yeti? 6ft 6in Russian serf who could outrun a horse was 'not human', according to DNA tests

    Witnesses said Zana the apewoman had the 'characteristics of a wild animal'
    She was allegedly trapped in Caucusus mountains and covered in thick hair
    Had 'enormous athletic power' and she could infamously outrun a horse
    A genetics professor has analysed DNA of six of her living descendants


Hundreds of explorers, theorists and fantasists have spent their lives searching for the infamous 'big-foot'.

But a leading geneticist believes he has found evidence to prove that it - or rather she - could have been more than a myth.

Professor Bryan Sykes of the University of Oxford claims a towering woman named Zana who lived in 19th Century Russia - and appeared to be 'half human, half ape' - could have been the fabled yeti.

Witnesses described the six-foot, six-inches tall woman discovered in the Caucasus mountains between Georgia and Russia as having 'all the characteristics of a wild animal' - and covered in thick auburn hair.

Mythical: Witnesses described the six-foot, six-inches tall woman as having 'all the characteristics of a wild animal' (fabled 'big-foot' pictured)

Experts believe the wandering 'Wild Woman' was found lurking in the remote region of Ochamchir in the Republic of Abkhazia.

She was captured by a local merchant in the 1850s who hired a group of hunters to subdue and shackle her in the mountainous terrain.

Professor Sykes claims Zana was kept in a 'ditch surrounded by sharpened spikes' and sold from owner to owner until she came to serve nobleman Edgi Genaba as a servant.

Famously known as the ape woman, Zana had at least four children by local men and some of her descendants still live in the region, the Times reported.

Sykes made an astonishing discovery when he carried out saliva tests on six of her living relatives and the tooth of her deceased son Khwit.

The DNA analysis revealed that they all contained the right amount of African DNA for Zana the ape woman to be '100 per cent African' but remarkably she did not resemble any known group. 

Her resemblance was that of a wild beast - 'the most frightening feature of which was her expression which was pure animal,' one Russian zoologist wrote in 1996.

The man who organised various eyewitness accounts of Zana wrote: 'Her athletic power was enormous.

She would outrun a horse and swim across the Moskva river even when it rose in violent high tide.'

Some have argued that she was a runaway Ottoman slave but Professor Sykes says her 'unparalleled DNA' refutes that theory.

He believes her ancestors came out of Africa over 100,000 years ago and lived in the remote Caucasus for many generations.

Zana was eventually 'tamed' by the nobleman who bought her as a servant and kept her on his estate in Tkhina in the Republic of Abkhazia.

Accounts from the time claim she was incredibly muscular, slept outdoors and ran around naked until she died on the estate in 1890.

Some of his colleagues doubt his other findings - which include a claim that an unknown species of bear might account for yeti sightings in Bhutan.

Despite the lack of hard proof from the analysis of the alleged 'yeti hairs', he says he has developed a strong sense that 'something is out there' after speaking to dozens of witnesses.

Professor Sykes could not say if the yeti, bigfoot or the Russian almasty is the best candidate for a surviving race of human 'apemen'.

He said: 'Bigfoot has many more people trying to find it. But I suppose either the yeti or the alma / almasty, which live in inaccessible and very thinly populated regions, is the most likely.'
THE MYTHICAL YETI AND THOSE WHO HAVE TRIED TO FIND IT

The first accounts of Yetis emerged before the 19th century from Buddhists who believed that the creature inhabited the Himalayas.

They depicted the mysterious beast as having similarities to an ape and carrying a large stone as a weapon while making a whistling sound.

In 1832, an explorer who had his account of trekking in Nepal published in the Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal spoke of seeing tall, bipedal creature covered with long dark hair, which seemed to flee in fear.

The term Abominable Snowman was developed in 1921 following a book by Lieutenant-Colonel Charles Howard-Bury called Mount Everest The Reconnaissance.

Popular interest in creature gathered pace in early 20th century as tourists began making their own trips to the region to try and capture the Yeti. They reported seeing strange markings in the snow.

The Daily Mail led a trip called the the Snowman Expedition in 1954 to Everest. During the trip mountaineering leader John Angelo Jackson photographed ancient paintings of Yetis and large footprints in the snow.

A number of hair samples were also found that were believed to have come from a Yeti scalp.

British mountaineer Don Whillans claimed to have witnessed a creature when scaling Annapurna in 1970.

He said that while searching for a campsite he heard some odd cries which his guide attributed to a Yeti's call. That night, he saw a dark shape moving near his camp.

In recent times, there have been more reported Yeti sightings and at a conference in Russia in 2011, scientists declared they were 95 per cent certain of the existence of Yetis.

In 2013, a scientist claimed that the Yeti was a distant relative of the polar bear, which is thought to have died out more than 40,000 years ago.

But researchers have shown that the two hair samples analysed actually originated from a modern polar bear, and a type of rare bear native to the high mountain ranges.

MYSTERY: HAS BIGFOOT JUST BEEN CAUGHT ON VIDEO?
Dashcam footage shows tourists startled by 'abominable snowman'


VIDEO AT SITE:  http://www.wnd.com/2016/11/mystery-has-bigfoot-just-been-caught-on-video/

We’ve all heard the legend of Bigfoot.

Or the yeti.

Or the Sasquatch.

Or “the Abominable Snowman.”

And now, the latest entry into the mystery is a video from Russia which shows two tourists getting startled by an unidentified figure they believe is the creature darting across a snowy road late at night.

The dashcam video is said to have been recorded in the Republic of Bashkortostan, between the Ural mountains and the Volga River near Russia’s border with Kazhakstan. The tourists were driving 22 miles from the nearest village, close to Mount Bolshoy Iremel with an elevation of 5,213 feet.

The video, posted on YouTube Nov. 17, already has more than 200,000 views and has been covered by news agencies in Russia and across Europe.

As the men were talking in the car, suddenly a blurry figure can be seen running from right to left within range of the headlights, surprising the men, who stopped the vehicle for a moment.

“It was clearly visible that the creature runs on two legs,” said Vadim Gilmanov who was in the car, according to the Express.

“Maybe it is somebody’s joke, but who would do it in such a remote place at night?”

The news made it to Russian TV channel NTV, which broadcast the headline: “Mysterious creature resembling yeti scared tourists in Bashkirian forest.”

One report said “the yeti was covered in white hair.”

“No single expert – zoologist or paleontologist – has ever found a single bone of a yeti, not even excrements, I am sorry,” said Dr. Anatoly Yakovlev, a zoology expert at Bashkir State University. “Nothing was ever found or seen.”

Yakovlev told the Express: “Usually, these sightings are some hallucinations, a product of the imagination.”

Wolf, dog, dogman or some mysterious creature? Montanans look for answers

This wolf-like animal was shot on private property close to Denton on May 16. Wildlife biologists have not yet clearly identified its species or subtype(Photo: KXLO Radio, Lewistown, Montana)

Was it a wolf, some type of hybrid, or a creature that hasn't been seen in Montana since the Ice Age?

On May 16 a lone wolf-like animal was shot and killed on a ranch outside Denton. With long grayish fur, a large head and an extended snout, the animal shared many of the same characteristics as a wolf; but its ears were too large, it's legs and body too short, its fur uncharacteristic of that common to a wolf.
So far, the exact species is a mystery

Canid creature shot near Denton (Photo: Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks)

So what was it? At this point, no one is 100 percent sure.

"We have no idea what this was until we get a DNA report back," said Bruce Auchly, information manager for Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks. "It was near a rancher's place, it was shot, and our game wardens went to investigate. The whole animal was sent to our lab in Bozeman. That's the last I ever heard of it."

Social media from around the Lewistown area was buzzing last week; with many people chiming in on what they believed the creature to be.
Grizzly cub? Dogman? Dire wolf? Or what?

"That's a grizzly cub," one commentator wrote. "Under a year and starving from the look."

Subscribe today: Our Memorial Day Sale ends on May 31.

"Maybe a dire wolf," wrote another, "because I don't believe they are all gone."

Speculation roamed as far as identifying that animal as a crypto-canid species said to roam the forests of North America.

"That could very well be what’s being called Dogman,"  one poster suggested. "They’re spotted each day and the government quells any and all reports. Several people report being strong armed into keeping quiet about their reports by men wearing black suits. These are just facts. Look into if if you don’t believe it."

Auchly doesn't.

"First off (dire wolf) was a song by the Grateful Dead from 1971," he said of the prehistoric species speculation. "I know; I listened to it many times. Number two, it's a prehistoric animal, like mastodons and saber toothed tigers; so it doesn't exist."

As for the Dogman theory; there's a regular Friday night YouTube broadcast called "Dogman Encounters" for those who wish to follow up on that line of thought. It comes on right after "Bigfoot Eyewitness" radio.

Nonetheless, there remains an element of uncertainty about the creature, even among wildlife biologists.

"Several things grabbed my attention when I saw the pictures," said Ty Smucker, wolf management specialist for Montana FWP. "The ears are too big. The legs look a little short. The feet look a little small, and the coat looks weird. There's just something off about it."
Possible wolf/dog hybrid

Smucker's own speculation runs toward some type of wolf/dog hybrid. He noted several occasions within the last few years in which canid predators, neither all wolf nor all dog were causing problems with ranchers east of the Continental Divide.

"We've had a few instances of wolf/dog hybrids out there," Smucker said. "One was out somewhere in eastern central Montana killing sheep like crazy. Finally, we caught it and it turned out to be a hybrid."
