Scientist Says Yeti DNA is from Ancient Polar Bear

Over the past few years, I’ve lobbed a lot of criticism to the Squatchers over on the Finding Bigfoot television show, mainly for attributing every downed tree, weird howl and snapped twig to Sasquatch. I understand that if these creatures exist, then they would probably pull down an occasional tree, make an odd howl here […]

Bigfoot Believer Keeps Hairs and Skin of Alleged Sasquatch

So many interesting anecdotes about Bigfoot, and so little actual proof. I came across this story of a woman who has been holding on to some biological material (hairs and skin, mostly) from what she claims is a sasquatch. Her story, while extremely interesting, doesn’t bring us any closer to determining if Bigfoot exists, unfortunately. SUTHERLIN, Ore. […]

King Richard III’s Skeleton, Lost for Centuries, Found After “Hunch”

This is a fascinating story that I frankly don’t know how to process. The location of the body of 32-year-old King Richard III, who died in 1485 at the Battle of Bosworth Field, has been unknown for centuries. Fast forward to 2009, when Philippa Langley allegedly sensed the exact spot where his body was (underneath a […]

Bigfoot DNA Sequenced by Dr. Melba Ketchum?

The big news this week has been the announcement by Dr. Melba Ketchum that she has sequenced Bigfoot DNA. If true, this would be very exciting new, not just for cryptozoologists or those interested in the paranormal, but for the entire world. But, this research has yet to be fully released and has not been […]

The Race to Publish Findings on Bigfoot DNA

Ah, Bigfooters. They’re not nearly as crazy or as bombastic as ghost hunters, but sometimes they can give them a run for their money. I firmly believe that if any so-called paranormal phenomenon will be solved and/or explained during our lifetimes, it would be the Bigfoot mystery (sorry, fellow ghost hunters, but we are barely […]

Wanted: Bigfoot Hair Samples

Part of me is really digging this story and its possibilities, and the other part of me is pretty sure this will turn out to be a circus. On the one hand, better, faster, more accurate DNA studies could hugely benefit the world of cryptozoology. On the other hand, every yahoo and yokel who’s ever […]

‘Oriental Yeti’ May Be a Sick Common Mammal

So Discovery News, along with other news outlets, is reporting on the supposed “Oriental Yeti” that has been captured in the Sichuan province of China.  Lu Chin, a hunter, is quoted in the story as saying, “It looks a bit like a bear but it doesn’t have any fur and it has a tail like […]
