Is This The Missing Element in the Bigfoot Mystery? Tim Swartz

Author & researcher, Tim Swartz talks about the strange story of Zena, The Wild Woman of Russia, on Far Out Radio

Tim Swartz was back with us this evening. Tim’s our resident researcher of all things strange & unusual, bizarre & over-the-top – terrestrial, & extraterrestrial, inner-dimensional, things from the past, present & future, and things that go BUMP in the night & GRRR under your bed… IS with us this evening!

There’s an old story that’s been getting some well deserved new attention since the end of 2014 when Dr. Melba Ketchum was on Coast to Coast AM with George Knapp. Dr. Melba was talking about her fascinating Bigfoot DNA research that has some in the Bigfoot community madder that disturbed hornets. Dr. Ketchum’s position is that based on the DNA testing done on tissue samples that she has acquired that they are NOT of any known animal in the DNA database. The conclusion of the samples is that they are MOSTLY but not COMPLETELY, human!

Whatever is it, it’s not an ape or bear, and it’s NOT completely human – which is downright spooky/creepy.

So, is the seemingly shy, elusive, woods creature a Neanderthal?
It is a leftover from the ancient Anunnaki DNA/hybrid experimentation accounts as explained in the work of Zachariah Stitchen? We just don’t know.

Well, we’re not here this evening to SPECIFICALLY talk about all that, but rather a very Far Out sub-story that IS connected to this alternative Bigfoot story and that is The legend of Zana the Wild Woman of Russia and her son Khwitt that goes back to the mid 1800s in the southern Caucasus mountains in Russia.

Zana died in the early1890s and her remains are unknown, but the remains one of her children, Khwitt’s ARE known of and have been DNA tested with some surprising, interesting results.

It is an intriguing story and while we might get some of the details wrong, the general direction of the story shows us that we still do NOT know the full story of the human experience on this planet.

Thanks for listening.

    ok… wait a second.

    they had a tv show with the DNA scientist on it.

    he got the tooth or something of her son that they dug up.

    he said she was sub Sahara african.

    Zana? Completely explained: can’t see the relevance .

    Zana, the end of a fairy tale.

    It’s absolutely clear since several years: Zana wasn’t a neanderthal or any other non-sapiens hominid. And she wasn’t any kind of non-human wild woman. This is the result of the DNA testing of the skull of Zana’s son Khwit, found by Igor Bourtsev in Abkhazia, done in the US.

    Hard to explain why Igor even today declares: The examination of the skull hasn’t finished and the question is open yet. Scientific nonsense. There were so many comments, publications and speculations about Zana over the years and now it came out: Just the early critical voices on Zana’s neanderthal origin were true. They underlined already 30 years ago Zana’s negroid physical characteristics: black skin, woolly hair, flat nose and thick lips. Eyewitnesses never described Almasty with thick, negroid lips.

    And there is a another explanation for Zana’s african genes: Arab traders sold african slaves on the Abkhazian coast in the middle ages. Some of these slaves succeeded to flee into the forests and survived there in the semi-subtropical jungle as THE BLACK FOREST PEOPLE – so called by the native Abkhazians until in present time. In summation, from a scientific point of view, all Almasty believers, especially in Moscow, should learn not to ignore critical voices, based on historical facts and genetic proof as well.

    Nevertheless, with the end of the fairy tale about the Almasty called Zana, streched over 40 years of investigations and speculations, the game should be open for a further critical check of other Russian Almasty findings and investigations. Comments are welcome.
