During the Memorial Day weekend—when society members make their annual Bigfoot-hunting expedition in the Sierra National Forest in California—Gonzalez had to abandon the truck because of snow. Either one or three days later, he returned to the truck and discovered that—lo and behold!!—something had left "stubby fingerprints and smudges," including face marks, all over the windows, like some kind of rude slob. A forensics photographer took some pictures and also some samples for DNA testing.
At a press conference in Fresno the other day, Society members displayed the smudge-picture evidence. They are now either seeking donations to test their DNA samples, or waiting for a DNA lab to volunteer its services. Whichever the case, Gonzalez won't trust the samples with just any old lab:
Previous attempts to analyze potential Bigfoot DNA haven't resulted in anything that could be considered as the scientific find of the ages. That's why Gonzalez is being very careful about who he'll turn over his reported Bigfoot DNA to.
"We need somebody to come forward to take this DNA and get it mapped," he told AOL. "Since nobody knows what a Bigfoot is, there's no available DNA for it. But by testing this DNA, by process of elimination we can find out if it was a bear, gorilla, baboon or something else.
I can hardly wait to find out if it was really Bigfoot! Also, the truck was full of food and the area in which it was abandoned is home to bears. But I'm pretty sure these Sanger guys are onto something.
