London, Oct 3: American researchers have claimed that they can prove that the legend of Bigfoot, also called sasquatch, is real, after spending half a decade and 300,000 pounds on their research.
Scientists have alleged that they have found DNA evidence to prove that the creatures exist, the Mirror reported.
The team of researchers was led by Dr Melba Ketchum, a qualified vet, who stressed that the Sasquatch Genome Project was a "serious study".
Ketchum asserted that she has seen the "human hybrid" for herself.
Ketchum said that the team had at least one tissue sample from a Bigfoot.
She explained that parts of the DNA from various blood and hair samples were unlike anything seen before in any known species.
During the project's announcement, the scientists also released a video of the creature, which was compiled by a similar team- the Erickson Project.
The video is a collection of several clips that all show the 7ft tall and extremely hairy mythical beast stomping through a forest. (ANI)
