The Federal Bureau of Investigations released the findings of their 1970’s investigation into the world famous Bigfoot. They tested hairs that where thought to be possibly Bigfoot, only to kind that they had some sort of deer. The government released to the public a twenty-two page Bigfoot report. They were forced by the Freedom of Information Act to let the public read about their investigation.
The director of the now-defunct Bigfoot Information Center in Oregon, Peter Bryne sent the FBI the hairs to test in their lab. Bryne who could not identify the hairs asked the feds to test it. Amazingly, they did do it, even though it is not something the FBI’s Lab us normally used for. They agreed in the name of science and no doubt craving curiosity. Who among us could pass up on such a fun excursion into such mythologies?
Bryne explained to the FBI that, “We do not often come across hair which we are unable to identify and the hair that we have now, about 15 hairs attached to a tiny piece of skin, is the first that we have obtained in six years which we feel may be of importance.” I could only imagine his excitement to find out what those hairs were from. This is very cool stuff.
The investigation happened between 1976-1977 and was closed out when they got the results that the hairs were a deer and not the famous Bigfoot. The fact that the FBI investigated Bigfoot and have released the report is breaking news for Bigfoot aficionados across the world. This all comes on the heels of Scientists saying that the Loch Ness Monster might be a real-life dinosaur. Next month, Neil Gemmell, a professor of biology and ecology at of the University of Otago, New Zealand will release the findings of their study.
