The Searching for Bigfoot press release was somewhat disappointing with lots of skeptical journalists trying to get down to facts. Facts that DNA evidence do not support.
As reported in CNN:
“They released a purported DNA result, although it was uncertain if the DNA info was supposed to be compared to other primates.”
According to Reuters, Bigfoot is simply a huge opossum:
“One of the two samples of DNA said to prove the existence of the Bigfoot came from a human and the other was 96 percent from an opossum, according to Curt Nelson, a scientist at the University of Minnesota who performed the DNA analysis.”
Sorry folks, the Whitton-Dyer Bigfoot is simply a hoax.
