How Can We Prove Bigfoot Is Real? How About Using DNA?

A team of scientists from Oxford University and Switzerland’s Lausanne Museum of Zoology plan to use genetic testing in an attempt to prove the existence of Bigfoot.

The team plans to use a systematic approach using the latest advances in genetic testing to examine the organic remains that some say belong to the so-called yeti that has been spotted in various remote locations over the past few decades.

Bryan Sykes at Oxford’s Wolfson College says that this type of research is something that any serious academic ventures into with a deal of trepidation because the subject is full of eccentric and downright misleading reports.

Sykes, however, says modern DNA testing may provide results that are more accurate.

There have been DNA tests done on alleged yetis and other such things but since then the testing techniques, particularly on hair, have improved a lot due to advances in forensic science.

Up to this point, research has concluded that suspected yeti remains were actually human.

Researchers say they plan to subject all possible yeti samples to rigorous genetic analysis, and publish the results in scientific journals.
