Quote: 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 report from 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."

Some of the reader comments are a joke. They are berating the author for being a skeptic. I guess his unwillingness to accept unpublished data (that is not being shared with anyone) connected to a subject with often falsified evidence is disturbing to them. Not even the researchers know where the genetic material came from! How reliable does that make the study? The author makes a very good point that the evidence could have been contaminated with human DNA by someone not trained in proper evidence collecting techniques. As a student of primatology, I would be thrilled to learn about a newly discovered primate species, especially one in America, but I'm not going to ignore the known dubious history of the subject and pretend it's all true. As far as I'm concerned, the people who are accepting this at face value are just closing their eyes and plugging their ears in order to keep reality from crashing down on them.
