What the genetic analysis of the hair of “Bigfoot” showed: an FBI investigation

(ORDO NEWS) — In 2019, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation published documents related to the study of samples that, hypothetically, could belong to Bigfoot. The research was carried out more than forty years ago, but it became known about it only now.

In 1976, Peter Byrne, an enthusiast searching for Bigfoot since 1946, asked the FBI to analyze 15 hair and tissue samples of unknown origin. The Office agreed, on an exceptional basis, to study them “in the interests of scientific research.” It turned out that the samples belonged to some animal of the deer family.

“The hair that you recently sent to the FBI lab on behalf of the Yeti Information Center was examined under a microscope in transmitted and reflected light. As a result, it was concluded that it belonged to an animal of the deer family,” and Jay Cochran’s FBI Maintenance Service, posted in early 1977.

It is not entirely clear why these samples were examined by the FBI and whether its employees were qualified enough to determine their origin down to the family of animals, but these questions should not be asked to us, but to the participants in the event.

Byrne, who at the time of the interview he was 93, told television channel CNBC, which did not leave hope to prove the existence of Bigfoot. Over the past 50 years, he says, he has discovered two or three chains of yeti footprints in the Himalayas. Judging by the footprints, Bigfoot has five toes. At the same time, Bern admitted that they could belong to sadhus – Indian hermits who retired from the world and renounced material pleasures.
