Canadian Insists Hair is that of Bigfoot
CALGARY, Alberta – A Bigfoot expert believes he has obtained the DNA from the elusive creature in the form of a long strand of hair which he found caught in a tree.
“So that hair sample, I collected it in an area where I built these DNA traps of my own design and put apples up about 12 feet on a tree up near the top of a mountain, where I’m having tons of interactions with these Sasquatch and they’ve been taking whatever I put up there but they’ve been taking the apples specifically,” says Todd Standing. “And while we’re sleeping there, takes these apples and left this hair sample for us.”
Believing the hair was a sample of Bigfoot, he had its DNA sequenced at a facility in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The results indicated the hair was human. Standing was not swayed one bit and now seeks the aid of another DNA sequencing facility that is willing to conclude it belongs to a primate unknown to man. Despite being told the hair sample is human, he insists that “others” have told him it does not belong to a human nor any type of primate known to exist. Obviously, if the DNA belongs to a primate unknown to man, it would be anecdotal evidence to suggest it possibly belongs to a race of Sasquatch beings.
Standing indicated he is growing weary of academia viewing his exploits as the foolish pursuit of a fabled creature. He says his belief in Bigfoot is dismissed in much same the same manner as those of people who believe in unicorns or Santa Claus. He is tired of being shunned by academia and wants to take his seat among them with full honor and respect. He believes a DNA sample of the creature would open the door to acceptance. For this reason, he is searching for someone who can prove the strand of hair is what he wants it to be.
“Sasquatch, again it’s evolved alongside human beings, probably has much more in common in the DNA than a chimpanzee. Sasquatch has a front facing nose unlike chimpanzees are internal. Sasquatch has a flat face. Sasquatch is bi-pedal, they’re the most man-like primate on the planet. Of course their DNA is going to test close that’s why I need a full nuclear DNA. That’s why I’m doing these interviews, is I’m trying to get somebody who will do those kinds of tests for me. You can’t pay for it,” Standing insists. The skepticism in the scientific community is keeping other believers from coming forward, he says.
