Back in 2012 the world heard that Bigfoot DNA had been isolated and genetically tested under controlled laboratory conditions. Those involved claimed that the testing had proven the existence of Bigfoot (aka, Sasquatch), and that the creature was a hybrid between modern homo sapiens and an unknown primate species.In a short time, the story unraveled and the research was scrutinized by experts revealing a number of flaws. But this was not the only attempt at producing genetic evidence for Bigfoot. There were earlier and subsequent tests. Is there genuine evidence for Bigfoot DNA?
The episode is now live.
I love this discussion.It’s a lot of fun to listen to. I do have something to add. North Central Illinois isn’t just corn and bean fields. The Illinois River runs through it and the area has some areas of heavy timber. In many of those areas the timber runs up the bluffs and along deep ravines right up to those corn and bean fields. The river valley and bluff areas are populated but the ravines aren’t and there are a lot of them. I measured on Google maps and some areas of those tree filled ravines go more than 11 miles from the river. Lacon, Il to the end of a ravine is over 11, Spring Bay to the end of an area is over 9. So, not trying to say I believe in them, and my husband grew up in those areas without an encounter, I think that a shy creature such as Bigfoot could be hiding there. Plenty of cover along the river bluffs and ravines. Hope this adds to the fun. Thinking of Bigfoot running around the neighborhood, I’ll be keeping my cats close to home. HA!
