FBI Releases Files From The Seventies Investigating The Existence Of Bigfoot

The FBI has released a cache of files from the seventies pertaining to Bigfoot, specifically documents describing the analysis of hair samples submitted by The Bigfoot Information Center and Exhibition (BIC) in 1976.

Spoiler alert: The hairs were not those of some mythical ape-like creature, but those of a deer.

The cache includes correspondence between Bigfoot hunter Peter Byrne and then FBI Assistant Director Jay Cochran Jr.

On a letter dated November 24, 1976, Byrne wrote: “We do not often come across hair which we are unable to identify and the hair that we have now, about 15 hairs attached to a tiny piece of skin, is the first that we have obtained in six years which we feel may be of importance.”

Cochran replied, saying the FBI usually conducts examinations on physical evidence for law enforcement purposes but “occasionally, on a case-by-case, basis, in the interest of research and scientific inquiry, we make exceptions to this general policy.” And on this ground, he agreed to examine the hairs and tissues Byrne mentioned.

This, says NBC, was the first time the FBI tested hair samples to check whether or not it was Bigfoot’s. The process, Cochran explained, involved a study of morphological characteristics (including root structure, medullary structure, and cuticle thickness) and a comparison with other samples of known origin.

In something of an anti-climax, the sample turned out to be deer hair.

The FBI hasn’t released proof of Bigfoot’s existence but the search is still ongoing, despite a severe lack of evidence (blurry film footage and dubious footprints not withstanding).

In 2018, a woman sued California for not recognizing Bigfoot as a species, while just this year, a poor man was shot because a hunter mistook him for the Sasquatch.

Indeed, belief in Bigfoot (and/or its derivatives) is surprisingly high. A 2018 poll conducted by Chapman University found that 21 percent of Americans – including former Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker – agree or strongly agree with the statement “Bigfoot is a real creature”. That is a 7.2 percent jump on the number who believed in Bigfoot’s existence back in 2016.

Meanwhile, another survey also conducted by Chapman University found that Americans are nearly as likely to believe in Bigfoot as they are the Big Bang (which, admittedly, is still a theory, albeit the leading theory on the universe’s origins).
