Research published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B claims that hair samples presented as evidence of Bigfoots did not actually come from the mythical creature. However, as the article from Discovery News states, those believed to belong to the Yeti actually uncovered another mystery - an ancient and new species of bear.
Is this difinitive proof that Bigfoot may not exist? No need to fret yet, Bigfoot believers.
Jennifer Viegas of Discovery News writes, "The study solely focused on hair samples, and did not address the footprints, photographs, recorded sounds and other 'evidence' purportedly linked to Bigfoot, the Yeti and similar supposedly human-like creatures."
Out of 57 hair samples provided, only 36 were tested. And as viewers see on Finding Bigfoot - there is a lot more evidence out there to be shared.
