Bigfoot's bLog has released a very detailed and lengthy statement from a "friend" who happens to be a "tenured faculty member in biochemistry at a research university, with a Ph.D. from Harvard" that neatly cuts down Ketchum's assertions. The unnamed Harvard PhD concludes the DNA samples are likely contaminated, to put it simply. While we are impressed by the thoroughness of this report, unfortunately it does not carry much weight when feted by an anonymous source. Why not put a name on it? On a more encouraging note, Loren Coleman reminds us of David Attenborough's changed views on the possibility of Sasquatch: When You Were Young…Old Attenborough Yeti Thoughts Become Renewed. After years of encountering Yeti evidence in his travels, Attenborough now believes that, "it is not impossible that it might exist. If you have walked the Himalayas there are these immense rhododendron forests that go on for hundreds of square miles which could hold the Yeti.”

13 Years Ago This Weekend...

The BFRO found an impression in the Gifford-Pinchot National Forest in Skamania County, Washington which has become known as the Skookum Cast named so after the location it was found in, Skookum Meadows. This was found in the early morning hours of September 22nd, 2000, by Rick Noll and Derek Randles, based on a suggestion by Thom Powell to put fruit in the middle of a muddy patch surrounded by dry dirt. It has been the subject of controversy ever since.
