The Test Results Are Done and the Hair Sample is...

Bison Hair.

Yep, the supposed Bigfoot hair sample turned out to be from an ordinary, deceased Bison.

This news is somewhat disappointing, but not entirely unexpected.

Now, mainstream science can go back to their close-minded views when it comes to Cryptozoology. It's amazing how one small hair sample can turn out to be from an ordinary animal and then the scientist can say "Let's let this thing die a natural death, let the world move [on]".

Somehow the DNA results from this one hair sample single-handedly cancels out the decades of eye witness accounts, the tracks, the videos, the pictures, the sound recordings..... Etc.

Also, these results will undoubtedly lead to the discrediting of all of the witnesses in the Yukon area that believe they saw Bigfoot. Correct me if I am wrong, but I am sure these people can tell the difference between a Bison and an unknown primate.

As a matter of a fact, the last time I checked, Bison don't walk around on two legs.

Yukon Bigfoot Hair Sample Update.

It appears that the DNA tests are done on the supposed Bigfoot hair sample that was discovered in the Yukon recently.

The University of Alberta is slated to release the test results sometime later today. I will post them here as soon as they are available.

This could be a huge story, so watch this space!

Join a Bigfoot Expedition.

For those of you out there who want to do more than just read about Bigfoot on the Internet or watch something about it on TV, then here's your chance.

The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization allows people to join them on various expeditions throughout the US.

There is a fee involved, but the price can be lowered by bringing your own transportation, food, lodging (tents, sleeping bags etc.) and equipment. All of the details on are the site, linked above.

I just recently discovered this and thought it was really kind of cool that people like you and me can join them in these expeditions. Of course, anyone can go out looking for Bigfoot, but who would want to do that alone? Not me.

So, if you are interested check out the site and sign up. If you do go on an expedition and want to report your trip, let me know in the comments section and I can start posting some of stories from your expeditions.

Who knows, I may go on one myself soon.

Yukon Bigfoot Update

Some of you may have heard of the story of a Bigfoot-type creature being spotted in the Yukon recently. Well, one of the sightings resulted in a clump of hair being found. The hair, purported to be from Bigfoot, was inspected and was said to resemble Bison hair and that further tests would need to be done to definitively determine the origin of the sample.

Well, it appears the University of Alberta in Canada has picked up the challenge. A professor at the university, David Goldman, is performing DNA tests on the hair. Results are expected as early as tomorrow.

This could be a huge scientific discovery if the tests show it came from an unknown animal. This might just be the jump-start that mainstream science needs to start taking the subject seriously.

Then again, it might just be Bison hair.

The search goes on.....

Monday, July 25, 2005 Update

You may remember a few days ago I had contacted an artist who created the waiting for bigfoot site. Her name is Jill Miller. Although, I have yet to hear back from Jill, I did discover that she already has a blog site of her own.

So, check out the site for regular updates from her campsite.

I hope to secure some other exclusive reports from the field soon. So, stay tuned!

The Recent Surge of Crypto News

It seems that Cryptozoology is getting out there in a big way recently, mostly due to numerous sightings of Bigfoot. The recent surge of interest is mostly due to the Manitoba sighting and video and the recent sightings in the Yukon.

These Bigfoot sightings and videos have generated a lot of interest in the subject lately, so much so that Yahoo had a section about Cryptozoology on their main page a few days ago.

While I am concerned that this new-found buzz in Bigfoot and the like could cause more hoaxes and pranksters, I think that any legitimate interest in the subject is definitely a good thing.

Waiting for Bigfoot

While I was trying to find more information on the recent Bigfoot expedition in Happy Camp, CA I ran across this site.

The site was created by an artist and has live video feeds from a campsite in Northern California.

I am currently in contact with this person to see if they would like to have their sightings, pictures or reports from the field posted here in this blog. So, stay tuned!

Happy Camp Bigfoot Expedition Update

I was looking around on one of my favorite message boards and noticed some posts about the Bigfoot expedition that I mentioned below. One of the posters, going by the name of BigWyrm was listening to Tom Biscardi on the Coast to Coast radio show. According to BigWyrm, Mr. Biscardi directed the listeners to happycampnews. As does the link from the earlier story about the expedition below.

After visiting the link, BigWyrm clicked one of the sponsors.

Coincidence that one of the sponsors has a very convincing Bigfoot costume for sale?

For now, I will give the expedition the benefit of the doubt.

Let's see what comes from this.

Mysterious Encounters

Lately, I have been watching a show on the OLN TV network. It is called Mysterious Encounters. This show exclusively deals with Sasquatch/Bigfoot related sightings across the country. The team, lead by Autumn Williams, drives around the country in their RV and stakes out areas that are purported to have Bigfoot-type sightings.

If you've seen the show, you know that some of the production values are lacking. There is some pretty cheesy music too. However, what it lacks in those categories, it makes up for it in others.

While watching the show, I wasn't even aware that some of the areas the team investigated had Bigfoot sightings. Such as New York State, as well as a few episodes in Oklahoma and Texas. The main thing that impresses me about the show is the technology they use in their investigations. A lot of high-end infrared cameras, motion-sensor cameras, cameras attached to a remote-controlled blimp, among other snazzy gadgets. Obviously there is some money going into these investigations.

Even with all of those gadgets, their investigations always come up inconclusive and the team usually leaves with little to no evidence at all that an unknown primate may be in the area. Still, the show is entertaining and I really dig it. My Tivo is set to record any episode that comes on.

So, check out the show. If you are even remotely interested in unknown primates or the Bigfoot phenomena, I think you will really like it.

Happy Camp Bigfoot Expedition

It appears that there was an expedition to capture Bigfoot in Happy Camp, California a few weeks ago. Apparently C. Thomas Biscardi (the person heading the expedition) is very confident that he will locate and capture the creature.

I am a bit skeptical about his claim, but we will see what comes of this... if anything.
