There are some that swear Sasquatch is out there, and then there are the rest of us who mock them. There is even a television series about hunting down this mythic elusive creature. But, respected geneticist, Bryan Sykes, at Oxford University in the U.K. has recently reported a genetic link of the Yeti, or “Abominable Snowman”, to a breed of ancient Arctic bears.
Here’s the kicker; he thinks it could have survived to modern day.
This conclusion was drawn from the findings of a yearlong project that aimed to rigorously test hair and tissue samples that were claimed to have belonged to Sasquatch.
“I put out a call for Yeti, Bigfoot, and Sasquatch hairs in 2012, and I received a good response from all over the world,” Sykes told NBC News.
Sykes’s findings will be the focus of Bigfoot Files, a documentary series premiering on Britain’s Channel 4 this Sunday. (A two-hour special will air in the U.S. on Sunday, November 17, at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on the National Geographic Channel.)
