Sasquatch is a human relative, reports say, as new DNA testing confirms the existence of a species with partly Homo Sapiens, partly primate characteristics.
DNA sequencing has brought about the discovery of human genes when examining the new hybrid species in North America. The testing was performed by DNA Diagnostics in Dallas, Texas, PRWeb reports.
Scientists worked on the study for five years, comparing reported Bigfoot samples to human ones. Their results are astounding – there is a link between the Sasquatch genes, which were not human, nor were they taken from primates – and ours.
“Researchers' extensive DNA sequencing suggests that the legendary Sasquatch is a human relative that arose approximately 15,000 years ago,” the report reads.
The trials also suggest that Bigfoot came to exist as males of the part human-part primate species were crossed with human females.
“Our study has sequenced 20 whole mitochondrial genomes and utilized next generation sequencing to obtain 3 whole nuclear genomes from purported Sasquatch samples. The genome sequencing shows that Sasquatch mtDNA is identical to modern Homo sapiens, but Sasquatch nuDNA is a novel, unknown hominin related to Homo sapiens and other primate species.
“Our data indicate that the North American Sasquatch is a hybrid species, the result of males of an unknown hominin species crossing with female Homo sapiens,” researchers inform.
The cross between species had to have happened once humans were developed, and the human female had already displayed modern characteristics.
Dr. Melba S. Ketchum of Nacogdoches, Texas, leading the group of scientists, expressed her concern about the endangerment of members of the Bigfoot family, with many trying to hunt them down. As they were around for a long time, she calls on officials to declare them an indigenous people, hereby protecting their Constitutional rights.
“Genetically, the Sasquatch are a human hybrid with unambiguously modern human maternal ancestry. Government at all levels must recognize them as an indigenous people and immediately protect their human and Constitutional rights against those who would see in their physical and cultural differences a ‘license’ to hunt, trap, or kill them,” she argues.
