A toenail found in Northern Arizona is being called evidence of the creature called Bigfoot. Some believe it actually came from the foot of a Sasquatch, or at least they hope it does. The debate is on to determine if this evidence, proves the existence of the creatures.
Much research is being called into question, so this proof could be ground breaking or detrimental.
The story actually begins with an Arizona man named Larry Jenkins. He had reported , what he believed were disruptions being caused by the activities of the Bigfoot or Sasquatch near his cabin in Northern Arizona.
This had been going on for a while, so much that Jenkins had been keeping watch for a chance to get proof, or any physical evidence of the creatures. Recently he found it, a toenail that he believes to be from one of the creatures. Jenkins reports that when he one of them outside his cabin, he then followed it into the woods nearby. He found the toenail, just on the underside of a fallen tree log.
Jenkins had the foresight to send it to Arizona Cryptozoological Research Organization, also called the AZCRO. The AZCRO took a DNA sampling from the toenail, which has been verified to be actual Sasquatch DNA. This is good news for Bigfoot researchers and it is timely as well.
In November 2012, a 5 year DNA study had already made claims that the Bigfoot is actually an ancient ancestor of human beings. The evidence brought forth conclusions that the creatures were the product of a primate species hybrid with Homo sapiens, probably about 15,000 year prior.
Bigfoot samples submitted for the 2012 study contained mostly hair to use for investigation purposes. Blood, saliva or any viable skin tissue were not available in any of the samples, this according to AZCRO. This makes the toenail even more important, because it had some extractable skin tissue still attached to it.
According to CEO of AZCRO, Alex Hearn there have been a large numbers of Class A sightings of bigfoot and regular activity in Arizona in the last decade. This has sparked investigations by the organization, which focused their energies on the areas near Seligman, Arizona. in 2008 and 2009 in Arizona and AZCRO investigators have experienced numerous Class A and Class B activity in and around Arizona, including at the Seligman investigation site and surrounding hills.
Now they have have sequenced three whole nuclear genomes from a species of hominid in North America, this is confirmed by the 11 scientists as reported by the AZCRO.
