Do new recordings from Oregon’s Blue Mountains offer good evidence of the mysterious bipedal creature known as Bigfoot?
Really? I mean, really?
Just because an animal call seems unusual or mysterious doesn’t mean that it is. There are many factors than can affect how something sounds from far away, including temperature, wind and geographical features such as canyons.
My money is on the coyotes. Read more…
Last week researchers from Oxford University and the Lausanne Museum of Zoology announced that they are seeking genetic materials (such as hair, skin, and blood samples) claimed to be of unknown animals such as Bigfoot. The goal of the Oxford-Lausanne Collateral Hominid Project is to catalogue and identify new species, including those long believed to be mythical.
A new university-backed project aims to investigate cryptic species such as the yeti whose existence is unproven, through genetic testing.
Researchers from Oxford University and the Lausanne Museum of Zoology are asking anyone with a collection of cryptozoological material to submit descriptions of it. The researchers will then ask for hair and other samples for genetic identification.
“I’m challenging and inviting the cryptozoologists to come up with the evidence instead of complaining that science is rejecting what they have to say,” said geneticist Bryan Sykes of the University of Oxford.
“They get fish every day, a bucket of fruit, a bucket of dry dog food,” said Robin Lynn Pfeifer, a 47-year-old resident of Newaygo County, north of Grand Rapids. “Their favorite thing is blueberry bagels. If I’m not baking them, I go to different stores to buy them. I tell them they are feeding the wildlife.”
