LONDON – DNA testing is taking a bite out of the Bigfoot legend. After scientists analyzed more than 30 hair samples reportedly left behind by Bigfoot and similar mythical beasts like the Himalayan Yeti, they found all of them came from more mundane creatures like bears, wolves, cows and raccoons.

Waiting for the really clear, close-up pic (clear telephoto will do) of Bigfoot and his relatives. He sure is camera-shy.

Growing up in Snoqualmie Mt Baker we've heard bigfoot many times.
We all knew it wasn't bear, we knew the local bears and ran into them
quite often. Bears sounds much different. Cougars, not even close.

The Bigfoot roar was more like a deep yell, it was cool and haunting at
the same time. It was just another animal in the woods we played in.

Wow, those big feet are trickier than I expected. Maybe they are hairless and just cover themselves with the hair of other animals.

Snoqualmie? I have heard of Snoqualmie! When I was a kid we lived in the city. It was the county seat! Across the sound in Port Townsend. I know we went to Mt. Baker and hurricane ridge. So we must have been to Snoqualmie. We left just after I was in 3rd grade.

My grandfather had a resort out of Port Angeles. Heart O The Hills. He ran a pack train up to Hurricane Ridge.

If a Bigfoot jumped in a tank of water with a great white shark, and a grizzly bear, three Chupacabras and a Wendigo, who would win?

Yeah, that would be a real Battle Royale!
I’d go with the shark if he was lasered.

The Grizzly would win it. It could handle the shark and the other two easily.
The big splash would be the Bigfoot and Grizzly battling it out for a close finish.
The unknown here would be the length of Bigfoots incisors, they could be a game changer.

Yeah, the bear is a crowd favorite and strong. But what about the three Chupacabras? And the Wendigo is a real wild card.
So yeah, if they ganged up on the great white maybe, but otherwise, if they’re in water I still say it’s the fish.
The bear would have to get the white from behind to win and he’d be busy fighting of the Wendigo, which is a man-eater. And Chupacabras have fought with Wendigos before, like Orcs and Wargs.
And the grizzly is a lot like a man. Now, if ManBearPig were in the mix, that would change everything.

Bless his heart, he may be certifiably bat-crap, toys in the attic, foaming mad but I love him.

I *never* miss Ancient Aliens and even watch the reruns.

There has never been a finer unintentional comedy on TV.

I rank right up there with Mystery Science Theater. Not sure it ever made it all across the country but was a classic in the SF Bay area

I found what I’m sure was a Bigfoot hair sample in my yard last Saturday morning. Well, it was either a Bigfoot or the coyote that tipped my trash can over. One or the other. Could easily be the Bigfoot, though. Even though I did sight the coyote a couple days earlier. Still, and all, I believe it to be Bigfoot. Maybe I’ll have it analyzed. Even though I know the difference between Bigfoot and coyotes. I’ve seen that film of the Bigfoot, the one where he’s looking back over his shoulder. Coyotes don’t look anywhere near like that.

I love MST and MST3K!

I was miserable when SciFi Channel cancelled it.

Once in a while my sig box contains one of my favorite MST3K quotes, “It’s a cult and they worship blue oysters!” but I don’t think anybody ever notices.

;D
