The shocking Bigfoot DNA discovery made by Dr. Melba Ketchum hasn’t convinced everyone on the planet that Sasquatch is the real deal, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Dr. Melba Ketchum spent the past five years pouring over Sasquatch samples collection from various North American locales. After a thorough scientific examination of the evidence, Ketchum declared that the legendary creature is strikingly similar to human beings.

Although the dedicated researcher is convinced that the creatures came into existence after a woman mated with a male from an “unknown hominin species,” some experts are’t convinced that Ketchum has discovered the proverbial smoking gun.

Eric Berger, science blogger with the Houston Chronicle, certainly isn’t convinced the Bigfoot DNA proves the existence of these mysterious beasts.

“At this point I should probably remind readers that there’s not at present a shred of credible scientific evidence that a Bigfoot, or Bigfeet, exist in North America, or anywhere in the world. These are, in fact, mythical creatures,” Berger explained.

He added, “What about the paper, you say? Well, almost anything is possible.”

According to the Los Angeles Times, University of Wisconsin anthropologist John Hawks is another individual that isn’t taking Ketchum’s Bigfoot finding at face value. Hawks explained that he wouldn’t comment on Ketchum’s claims until the DNA research had been completed.

“No data, no discovery,” he said.

Interestingly, the International Science Times discovered that DNA Diagnostics — the company used to dig through the alleged Bigfoot DNA — has been given an “F” by the Better Business Bureau. In fact, over a dozen people have complained about the company’s services.

Dr. Melba Ketchum said she won’t comment further on this controversial Sasquatch project until her research has concluded.

What do you think about the Bigfoot DNA? Do you believe the mythical creatures are some sort of human hybrid?
