Identification of Yeti. Scientists who are mistaken for Bigfoot (video)
Identification of Yeti. Scientists who are mistaken for Bigfoot. Last time about Bigfoot, a hairy creature who supposedly can see in different parts of the world, I wrote almost a year ago, in August 2013. The reason is quite simple — along Nessie from the Scottish lake of the phenomenon of Bigfoot is gradually becoming obsolete.
Hundreds of enthusiasts every year go in search of mythical creatures, but their attempts always end in failure. The best that can be hoped cryptozoology, is of dubious origin traces on the ground and the same quality photographs.
As for the videos, which, for obvious reasons, much less than the pictures then in most cases it’s just a fake, in the other — quite well-known science of creatures (including people), mistakenly taken for Bigfoot.
Authors shots-counterfeiting purposes may be different, but such «evidence» is still being held afloat the perennial myth of the supposedly extant relict hominid. Scientists today probably put a fat point in the identification of the creatures called Sasquatch, Yeti, Bigfoot, etc. sasquatches an international group of researchers, including British scientists, and their colleagues in France, Germany, Switzerland and the USA, decided to see if there is a Bigfoot and his relatives, for example Bigfoot. For this, they requested from different countries, where he saw these strange creatures, samples of their wool and others discovered «eyewitnesses» fragments. In response, they sent as many as 57 samples.
From the US they sent the coat of Bigfoot, from Sumatra — hairs of Oran pendek — being, which is described as a hobbit, from India and Nepal — fragments «Yeti» in Bhutan — hairs «southern cousin» of Bigfoot — Mihara, Russia and from fragments of wool «Mongolian Bigfoot» Almas. Of available to the researchers of the samples suitable for the study was as much as 36. Scientists have isolated from the hair samples of all of these fantastic creatures 126 mitochondrial RNA, and then through the analysis determined which creatures they actually belong. In addition, scientists have carried out macroscopic, microscopic and fluorescence analyses of all samples.
Although interesting details of the research are certainly there. So, for example, it was found that samples sent from India and Bhutan belong to lived in the Pleistocene era giant polar bear (Ursus maritimus tyrannus), or one of his relatives.
According to scientists, this suggests that in these areas inhabited or these animals, or yet unknown to science representatives of this subspecies. And sent from India’s sample was pretty «fresh»: the words have sent his man, he belonged to the creature that killed them about forty years ago.
Hunter said that this bear was much more aggressive and larger dogs. In addition, it had an unusual color. At the same time, sent from the United States hair samples Bigfoot turned out to be owned by the raccoon (Procyon lotor), domestic sheep (Ovis aries), black bear baribal (Ursus americanus), North American porcupine (Erethizon dorsatum), coyote (Canis latrans), domestic horse (Equus caballus), domestic cow (Bos taurus taurus), white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus).
Moreover, one of the submitted samples was found to be owned by man (Homo sapiens). The most unusual sample of hair cover sent from Sumatra. It turned out that he belongs to a very rare animal — the black tapir (Tapirus indicus). And from Nepal sent hair, which someone snatched away the goat-serow (Their).
However, I’m not sure that these results will cool the ardor of the cryptozoology and other admirers of Bigfoot. The same opinion is shared by the authors of the study: «I don’t think our research will put an end to disputes about the existence of different fantastic creatures. Nevertheless, it proves that the many evidences of their existence in reality, they have nothing to do». By the way, in February this year I conducted a podcast that was dedicated to the Yeti, where in detail were considered the most famous to date «evidence» of the reality of Bigfoot. The results are also disappointing.
