Now David Paulides of North American Bigfoot Search.com and the author of Tribal Bigfoot has been busy collecting bone and hair samples of purported various Bigfoot. His research has led him into DNA evaluation of these samples and he reports on Coast to Coast AM that results are very promising so far.
In fact, Paulides and highly respected DNA expert Dr. Melba S. Ketchum have found that some samples appear to have both human and animal characteristics. However, the research is ongoing.
Dr. Ketchum believes that very shortly she will have the final conclusions to the DNA testing. Then the results will be submitted for peer review in scientific journals and an announcement will be made.
Both Dr. Ketchum and Paulides believe the research is very promising and that the DNA may indeed offer definitive DNA proof of an existence of a Bigfoot type of creature. Still, final DNA testing needs to be carefully concluded so that skeptics will not be able to attack the DNA findings as being based on faulty or sloppy science.Grant Lawrence
