DR SELLTON has left a new comment on your post "Bigfoot Ballyhoo Report":
A very simple answer to the questions about why the so-called Bigfoot of 1962 has not been classified as a Sasquatch. In 1962 there was no control sample of a known Sasquatch.
In 2012 we do not have a category for Sasquatch because we have no evidence that the beings people claim to see or the bones from 1962 are in fact a Sasquatch. We cannot merely give something a category until we have sufficient evidence that can hold up to science.
DNA samples are worthless because of no control sample. Saying it came from a Sasquatch doesn't cut the mustard. The sample may have been degraded or mixed with something else. No mentions of the source and who collected it makes me very suspect of any findings.I realize some people want to cut past science to get the Sasquatch/Bigfoot classified anyway possible but it doesn't work like that.
First we need a body for intense examination of body fluids, bone structure and a battery of nuclear tests and then complete documentation of the entire body mass. Nothing short of this will be excepted. The bones from 62 would only leave more questions than answers. Medical forensics in 62 was far below the threshold now required
