Scientists turn to DNA tests in search for bigfoot
Scientists are turning to genetics to see if they can prove the existence of the elusive hairy humanoid known across the world as bigfoot, yeti and sasquatch.
A joint project between Oxford University and Switzerland’s Lausanne Museum of Zoology will examine organic remains that some say belong to the creature that has been spotted in remote areas for decades.
“It’s an area that any serious academic ventures into with a deal of trepidation…. It’s full of eccentric and downright misleading reports,” said Bryan Sykes at Oxford’s Wolfson College.
