Tissue samples, along with new video suggest that creatures of legend are real

Bigfoot, also known as the "skunk ape" has long puzzled cryptozoologists. Now, a group of researchers say new DNA evidence coupled with a video of a dozing female Sasquatch proves the reclusive creature's existence.

This classic photo of Bigfoot was long proven to be phony.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "Never-before-seen footage" of the creature sleeping in the Kentucky woods has been presented this week along with various blood and hair samples.

Reportedly backed by 11 outside laboratories and universities, which all reviewed the findings after being provided with blind samples, the Sasquatch Genome Project says this backs up claims of the creature's existence.

"We want people to understand that this is a serious study," Dr. Melba Ketchum, a genetics scientist says. Ketchum led the project during the course of the five-year study. Others are challenging Ketchum's credibility, such as New York University. Ketchum claims to have used that college's facilities in order to test a field sample.

The group was in Dallas earlier this week with genetic and visual findings. A video of what is described as "a reddish brown Sasquatch juvenile" sleeping in the woods after being tracked with her mother was among the evidence presented. The specimen is said to be just one of many witnessed and filmed in person by the researchers.

The report, first published in February, includes photos of coarse horse-like hair and at least one tissue sample believed by the group to be from an actual Sasquatch. Another photo depicts "fresh" drops of blood and large marks from "fangs" said to have punctured a metal downspout, according to the report.

"(A)pproximately one hundred and thirteen separate samples of hair, blood, mucus, toenail, bark scrapings, saliva and skin with hair and subcutaneous tissue attached were submitted by dozens of individuals and groups from thirty-four separate hominin collection sites around North America," the report explains.

The purported Bigfoot hair collected from the wooden structure in the woods is said to have contained a never-before-seen genetic structure, that is said to be human.

Thanks to a substantial $500,000 donation from Bigfoot believer and businessman Adrian Erickson, the researchers say they were able to scientifically analyze all samples collected.

Labs said to have received them for study included the University of Texas Southwestern, the North Louisiana Crime Lab and NYU.

However - a representative from NYU says that the university never dealt with Ketchum, who holds a doctorate in veterinary medicine from Texas A&M University or accepted any data or samples from the Bigfoot Genome Project.

The Louisiana Crime Lab says that it has worked with Ketchum on her study, but all they did was extract DNA from bones she sent them that she in turn sent to be sampled elsewhere.

"They didn't know what they were testing," Ketchum told journalists. "I have one email from a tester saying 'what have you done, discovered a new species?'"
