The famous “big foot” also known as sasquatch is found to be partly human as revealed by the study conducted using its DNA. This ape-like creature which people believe to inhabits forest at the Pacific northwest region of North America is said to have a DNA of like of human being. This could be another experiment to be done to find another missing link of human’s connection to animals. To make a valuable decision of accepting the theory of evolution can be sealed by genetic testing of Bigfoot’s DNA.

According to Dr. Melba Ketchum that “genetically, the Sasquatch are a human hybrid with unambiguously modern human maternal ancestry. Government at all levels must recognize them as an indigenous people and immediately protect their human and Constitutional right”. Dr. Ketchum and her team who are experts in genetics, forensics, imaging and pathology started their study 5 years and found that there have sequenced 3 complete Sasquatch nuclear genomes and determined the species is a human hybrid:
“Our study has sequenced 20 whole mitochondrial genomes and utilized next generation sequencing to obtain 3 whole nuclear genomes from purported Sasquatch samples. The genome sequencing shows that Sasquatch mtDNA is identical to modern Homo sapiens, but Sasquatch nuDNA is a novel, unknown hominin related to Homo sapiens and other primate species. Our data indicate that the North American Sasquatch is a hybrid species, the result of males of an unknown hominin species crossing with female Homo sapiens.” – Ketchum
Though people would not thoroughly understand the result of DNA tests of Bigfoot, Dr. Ketchum and the team experts are accountable enough to believe their study and claimed Big foot as human. Furthermore, Ketchum explains that, “hominins are members of the taxonomic grouping Hominini, which includes all members of the genus Homo. Genetic testing has already ruled out Homo neanderthalis and the Denisova hominin as contributors to Sasquatch mtDNA or nuDNA. “The male progenitor that contributed the unknown sequence to this hybrid is unique as its DNA is more distantly removed from humans than other recently discovered hominins like the Denisovan individual”.
And because of this, every living thing in the world has rights – rights to live and rights not to be abused – so Bigfoot, human or not, has the rights to live at peace and at this point, this specie is considered as indigenous people and must be treated fair and wisely.
