Bigfoot DNA: Sasquatch is the result of cryptid sex with humans, says scientist

bigfoot-dna-found-dvd-movie.jpgA researcher by the name of Melba S. Ketchum reports she and her team have examined Bigfoot DNA. Ketchum claims her evidence -- which is yet to be submitted to peer review -- proves 15,000 year old cryptids procreated with modern human women, resulting in  the mysterious and elusive Sasquatch.

"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," says the news release. "Researchers' extensive DNA sequencing suggests that the legendary Sasquatch is a human relative that arose approximately 15,000 years ago."

According to Yahoo News, Ketchum has requested that, based on her findings, the U.S. government recognize Bigfoot 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."

It is unclear how Ketchum's team collected their DNA samples. But another group out of Oxford University and the Lausanne Museum of Zoology claim to have collected samples of Yeti and Bigfoot hair, with plans for genetic identification.

Bigfoot sightings have been reported in the U.S. since the mid-1800s. The hairy beast has been the subject of many films, including 2012's made-for-television release, "Bigfoot," starring Danny Bondauce, and featuring Barry Williams and Alice Cooper.

So, what do you think? Is this scientific study hogwash, or is Bigfoot about to become real?
