Hmmm. One analyzed sample came from a "paleolithic polar bear it says. Interesting. Gonna have to look further into where that sample came from.

I've been to India and Nepal including parts of the Everest trail and gladly embrace the mystical quality of those countries, but sadly all the DNA testing of these Yeti remains that are kept in monasteries up there have proved to be false - bears or sheep bones and skulls.

If you want to search for an illusive creature in the Himalayas - make it the snow leopard. An amazing creature by any measure.
I read a story about a Tibetan out in the hinterlands of Nepal, telling a guest he had a real Yeti skin. Showed it to the guest: long white fur. Polar Bear.

OK, so how can some guy in Nepal have polar bear skin/fur? I dont think there are many polar bears in Nepal!

People do travel and also import items not necessarily from their part of the world. Just look at how many 'big game' hunters we have had in the news lately bringing down lions and other trophy animals in Africa. But the scientist did not say straight polar bear; they did suggest that it could be a hybrid between brown bears and polar bears: https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2017...-belongs-bears. But they also suggested that it needed more research.

As far as your 'good info' link; it is pro-big foot. They have a vested interest in their position - they make money off their articles. It isn't only that; but the believers tend to believe anybody in government as long as they support their position. Our government, like the public in general, is made up of believers and non-believers. If a believer, that works for our government, states that they feel that BF is real; does that make it an official government position or just something BF organizations hold up as 'real' proof? You seem hesitant to accept real news and less anxious to accept real science.

Did you read the criteria that go into designating a species as 'protected' status? Apparently in the 70s, the Army Corps of Engineers felt 'Bigfoot' should be on this list and it was included in the manual as a native species of CA. (thats pretty hard to debunk!)

All it means is that somebody in the Army Corps of Engineers felt that way and included it in the manual. It could have been anybody or any group that felt there was just cause. Heck, I was in the Army Corps of Engineers for seven years at that time. We are all human and we all make mistakes; it does not mean that it is fact. Where is their proof? Just remember that we would not be still debating this if they had a body; which they did not.

LOL, I dont think they can just add things to a govt published manual, because someone may happen to believe its true, generally they are pretty careful about whats put into manuals like that.

But that's exactly what they did. Last paragraph from the 1975 Corps of Engineers Atlas page:

Quote:
If Sasquatch is purely legendary, the legend is likely to be a long time in dying. On the other had, if Sasquatch does exist, then with the Sasquatch hunts being mounted and the increasing human population it seems likely that some hard evidence may soon be in hand. Legendary or actual, Sasquatch excites a great popular interest in Washington.
The page refers to "alleged sightings" in a previous paragraph. In short, they weren't claiming it exists, and they weren't claiming it doesn't exist. Here's a link to a photo of the actual page FYI:
