Bigfoot historian, Steven Streufert, and Sasquatch researcher, Rhettman Mullis were guests during the first hour of Coast to Coast AM on Thursday, May 24, 2012. Appearing to discuss an upcoming round of DNA testing to be conducted at Oxford University, the two made it abundantly clear that there is no question about the existence of Bigfoot. Bigfoot are real and they’re a lot closer than you think.
Host, George Noory, introduced Streufert first. Streufert is the owner of a bodega in Willow Creek, California, where Bigfoot first became a household name in 1958. George’s first question was one asked by most Coast to Coast listeners: “Are they really going ahead with this DNA testing?”
According to Streufert, Bryan Sykes, former professor of Human Genetics at University of Oxford, is currently working with the Lausanne Museum of Zoology in Switzerland, setting up DNA testing. They amassed a large collection of hair samples, believed to be Bigfoot in origin, from all over the world and are preparing to conduct the first scientific study of this reputed Bigfoot evidence.
Streufert said this study has a much stronger scientific pedigree than any other testing done to date and researchers are putting out a world-wide call for samples. Samples can be submitted until September of 2012. Scientists plan to analyze DNA samples in November and hope to publish their findings sometime in December of 2012.
Noory asked Rhettman Mullis of Bigfootology what he thinks of this proposed testing to find out if Bigfoot exists or not. Mullis has been researching Bigfoot for more than 35 years and has had numerous sightings in his lifetime. He and his team have been working behind the scenes to assist with this project for the past 3 months.
Mullis replied that there have been countless sightings of Bigfoot over the years and that thousands of people have some type of evidence, so it’s time for some type of official, scientific investigation to pull all of these puzzle pieces together and get a true picture of Bigfoot.
