Bart Cutino of Our Sierras Evidence Initiative shares his thoughts on Ketchum and her press release


Editor’s Note:  This is a guest post by CA-BFRO Researcher, Bart Cutino. He is an unabashed, unapologetic member of The Bigfoot Research Organization, a diverse group of about 200 researchers and adventurers. He's also a member of the AIBR, the Bigfoot Discovery Museum and a co-founder of the Sierras Evidence Initiative.

As I get inundated with emails from family and friends who are mildly intrigued by the bigfoot phenomenon and mean well, congratulating me on the recent DNA press release (unfortunately picked up by the AP) I almost don’t know where to begin in explaining to them just how intimately familiar I am with what’s being proclaimed (without any substantiation) and by whom. For now, due to time considerations and trying to complete the written analysis on what little time I do have so I can release the recent thermal footage I obtained in the Sierras in late August, I’m admittedly giving a very simple and canned answer:

“I know exactly what’s happening, (have known for two years) know most of those who submitted samples in good faith and especially who funded the study (a special man & friend with the most honorable of intentions). But FYI, I have zero confidence in the purported study and believe the person running around announcing it publicly without any confirming data, has zero credibility. Don’t expect anything to come of this, including and especially an authenticated “paper” with replicable data.”

I’ll explain more later.

Thanks

Bart

Why am I so firmly negative about what could be the “smoking gun” of a lifelong passionate pursuit you might ask? Because for starters you're asking the scientific establishment and the general public to accept the most improbable species (by perception with respect to viability) without a physical specimen; a tremendous ladder to climb. That’s not the problem however, that’s just stating the obvious. The problem is that the person climbing that ladder, rather you or I like it or not, by her decision to go public against her supposed own rules, is now representing all of us and happens to believe the biological species we pursue also happens to be fallen angels, has the ability to speak to her through her mind, suddenly frequents her property (only since her work began, mind you), braids the hair of her horses and essentially have thankfully allowed and even encouraged her to move forward in her work. Without having passed peer review, she’s demanding constitutional rights and protection now for an unrecognized species she’s drawing attention to…. by attempting to recognize them? Or… maybe she’s really not and just attempting to make us all believe she is?

Because of her and others before her and like her, we're all guilty by association of subject through the prism of the general public. That same general public resides in most of your households and doesn't have the time, interest or patience to make distinctions regarding the facts or players objectives. In their eyes, how many of these “bigfoot researcher/enthusiasts” can there possibly be and they must fit an extreme minority "blind believer" stereotype, like a small club of dreamers in unison. Of course in reality, this couldn’t be further then the truth as many of us involved with this subject matter are respectfully some of the most honest, diverse, educated, skeptical and objective persons on the planet. In addition, this is also the same general public by the way, where anywhere from less than a fifth to as much as a third of the population (dependent on parameters of various surveys and geographic location) believes these animals do exist, though the most common question still asked is, "is there only one," implying the name "bigfoot," a name absent of any plurality, gives the false perception that people like myself are running around the wilderness at night chasing one mythical animal with a perpetual lifespan.

The truth is, right now, based on the recent “announcement,” I'm actually embarrassed to be associated with this subject, but not at all for the reasons those outside bigfooting may suspect, as I sleep just fine at night since August 18th 2007, knowing from personal experience these animals are a biological reality and discovery and species recognition is inevitably around the corner. The question for many of you who understandably aren’t so sure (understatement) because collectively we’ve failed as researchers to give you much of a reason to be optimistic at this point is “how?” The question for me and many of my research peers and colleagues who’ve been fortunate enough to see one is, “when, where, who and how (“how” specifically referring to method).”

For clarification purposes and to bring everyone up to speed, the Sierra's shooting incident I’ve been investigating for a year and a half thanks to a damn good friend and researcher (Derek Randles) will either become forever anecdotal in nature or will be eventually corroborated through one or both of the two forms of physical evidence submitted, one of which, the “non-circumstantial” evidence (boots) will be processing soon and is solely in my custody and has been for 15 months. The other, is the “circumstantial” evidence (tissue) retrieved by the hunters in the snow by the attention of a bloodhound roughly a month after the purported shootings. This tissue sample is apparently a major component (“the centerpiece,” if you will) of Melba Ketchum’s purported study and has been processed by us (my Canadian partner Tyler Huggins and I, and with the persistence and support of Justin Smeja) independently, with two North American labs and nearing final status after 6 long months of waiting and constant back and forth communications.

I want to remind everybody, come hell or high water, the completed lab reports we expect to receive soon, are going to be shared as promised several months ago (when complete) by us in addition to all email communications through process and recommended protocols from our trials and errors (written by Tyler) which will not only be informative, but also serve as a roadmap for researchers to efficiently expedite and navigate the diagnostic process with contracted labs in the future. “If” those final determinations, which were performed by lab directors with impeccable resumes and reputations, don't happen to mirror Melba Ketchum’s findings (if we ever see them and they even exist) confirming the Sierra’s tissue as the human hybrid she claims, I suspect we’re going to have a little problem. Since Ketchum decided to go public without her results being appropriately validated through the peer review process, it will be her burden to justify and answer for any deviations that could potentially turn up in those findings.

Of course we’d hope she's right, but we’re not holding our breath based on her unprofessional behavior and lack of ethics through the entire process while many have anxiously waited for something substantial that was promised, including many with blind faith, emotional investment and optimism. What precipitated us unilaterally and independently testing around her for attempted unbiased examination in the first place was our lack of confidence in her from the beginning and her purported study (supposedly outsourced to multiple university labs) in which I have even less confidence now than when I began investigating this incident in July 2011. Just for the record, and as all my peers in this field can attest, I had no confidence in her when I began.

If her study results are eventually authenticated through the appropriate scientific channels, as passionate as I am, I’d be admittedly thrilled to see us one major hurdle closer to discovery and species recognition and she’ll deserve her own recognition for that accomplishment. After all, our intentions were never to discredit her but get the truth and share it, in a perfect world and personal feelings aside, we’d help substantiate her work and everybody wins. I’ll also be relieved and happy for those who worked with her in good faith and provided great samples (they put in a lot of work to obtain). However, the last thing I will be is regretful of never having been supportive of her, as I believe when we make decisions, the best any of us can do is take the information we’re privy to, assess it diligently and then react appropriately. No honest, rational person unwilling to compromise their principals would walk in my shoes the last year knowing what I do and not proceed exactly the way I’m proud to say we have… with extreme caution and commitment for the truth and not seduced by the ultimate prize or promise.

When final lab reports are received and both Tyler and I complete our summaries, we’ll announce it here through Shawn and you’ll be able to access everything (lab reports, emails, protocols etc…) on our newly formed, Sierras Evidence Initiative team site (www.sierrasiteproject.com).

    1. Just like Moneymaker, someone else with the same evidence as Ketchum, doing basically the same thing as Ketchum, is calling her out? Only in Bigfoot world.....

    2. Shame on you, Bart! I previously had some respect for you but no more. Why oh why does the bigfoot community CONTINUALLY beat each other up??? Why do you dismiss her like this BEFORE THE PAPER EVEN COMES OUT?? A true professional would keep their mouth shut publically, wait to see the results and THEN say your peace. "Our intentions were never to discredit her" - but yet you spend your entire rant doing so?? Again, shame on you, Bart! Oh, and your idea of "professionalism" is to release your DNA information on THIS site?? Oh, that will certainly be taken seriously by the scientific community - Bigfoot Evidence has little to no credibility in the bigfoot community, let alone in the larger scientific world. All that you have to do is read a handful of the juvenile comments that are posted here by trolls to understand that. And just so you know, I am not a Ketchum advocate at all, in fact I am quite neutral about her, but I am wise enough to see the importance of WAITING UNTIL THE RESULTS ARE OUT before prematurely criticizing her. Obviously you lack that wisdom, Bart.

    5. So, now there's a third dna study. Excellent. Let's not sweat the small shit. There should be a law against nagging. I'll just have to engage the selective hearing/reading again.

      The real debate will ensue when the data is available to all, and the qualified geneticists will render their opinions. It'll be fascinating to speculate on every little aspect concerning bigfoot,the more and more we know. We'll see what we see with all three of these projects, with the main goal of proving that bigfoot exist and then getting resources and funding to finally catch one. That will be the hard part.

      I personally don't care who's dna project gets it done first. It doesn't matter, because we'll all be on to the next phase that's even more interesting: how do we catch something that's smarter than us? Are we gonna have to get a "million man march" going?

    12. Curious to Mr. Mahoney if this site has little to no credibility, why would the likes of you, Meldrum, MM, Dyyer, Loren and others continue to read and post here? Just because people claim first and talk about taterholes, does not mean Shawns site isnt credible. He just posts shit and allows us to have fun. Just read all the posts! People can talk about taterholes,or dna, or dna in taterholes.

    13. This site is definitely NOT credible to the scientific community. Fun, fluffy, somewhat interesting, but NOT credible. I also enjoy leafing through The National Enquirer when I'm in line at the grocery store, but do I take what I read seriously? Aaah, no. Please understand that I'm not trying to rip on Shawn, but it's important to put this site into perspective and not to have any delusions of grandeur.

    14. Frank you are an absolute tool! Bart is the last person you have to worry about in discrediting as she's done that just fine herself. He's been on the inside of this and knows quite a bit i would gather. If it turns out that those samples tested arent these hybrids dr ketchum is claiming, did he not just attempt to do us alll a big favor? So he becomes the poisoned messenger? You're an idiot and the scum of this field

    15. What is funny here is he got the boots and she got some of the steak. What has probably got him all jumped up is her assertion that sasquatches are people too and deserve equal protection under the law. You know what that means - somebody got murdered!

      "Fuck it! I don't care!"

      So, who are the accomplices after the fact?

      Delete
    16. Anon 3:17 - I am "an idiot and the scum of this field" because I believe that the Bigfoot community should try to show a modicum of solidarity until the paper is released? Shouldn't we actually read it before we heap criticism on a fellow researcher? Interpretation may differ, but DNA DOES NOT LIE.

      Delete
    17. Hey Frank- Isnt that what Cutino is complaining about here? The paper hasn't been read and she went public as Bart mentioned. He's saying we suffer repercussions of that and by god he's right!

      He's also been involved in the investigation for over a year and a half or so, if he has a good read on her maybe the guy is trying to prevent more humiliation for this field? I'm sorry I just don't believe he'd spend a year and a half investigating this solely to sabotage someone's work because it wouldn't jive with his theory? The guy has said several times that he gets labeled in this ape camp bs but just wants the species proven.plus these guys went and tested the sierra sample and are now starting to get results according to him in article or am I reading that wrong?

      I'll even take this a step further if Bart knows something that's even more unprofessional then we've seen or unethical of ketchum doesn't he have a responsibility to say something now?

      Think what you will but I don't think this guy is being anything other then brutally honest and cautious in this article and who in the hell can blame him based on what we've seen?

      My opinion is you're looking at this wrong and if that sample isn't a bigfoot human or whatever, I'd personally want to know about that before depending on Ketchum who does fit the wacky profile Bart described.

    18. Frank, Bigfoot isnt taken seriously by the scientific community. So when you say this site isnt taken seriously by tbe scientific community thats pretty damn obvious. Im sure if you polled 1,000 scientist 999 would say BF is a myth created by NASCAR fans who like beef jerky.
      Even on the most popular BF show the scientist thinks her own friends are full of shit. So your point about this site and its comments are falling on deaf ears.

    20. Ketchum is not a "fellow researcher". She's a whacko habitator posting as a scientist. Crazies like Ketchum are radioactive to anyone who wants to be taken seriously on this subject. To maintain credibility they have no choice but to come out against her, or be painted as a crazy like her.
      We should show solidarity with that.

      Delete
    21. No actually they should act more scientific and less like douches. If they let her paper come out and everyone stepped away and said we weren't privy to the info they look scientific to say anything before makes the whole scene look like a big cock smokin joke

      Delete
    22. I do hear what you are saying, but I personally find this kind of infighting thoroughly unprofessional and lacking in integrity. Hold off criticism until AFTER the paper comes out because we do not know what the evidence is going to show until we take a look at it. DNA does not lie. Period. So what if Ketchum appears to some a little kooky? Many great scientists ARE kooky! Let her work stand for itself.

      Delete
    23. That is exactly what I just said sorry if it came across wrong

      Delete
    24. DNA doesn't lie. People do. It's time to face the fact that habitators are liars with a book and a website. If Melba is one of those, and I haven't heard her deny it, then it doesn't matter what her report says. Its useless.

      Delete
    25. The infighting sucks. But, at least there's one more reported DNA study in the works. Supposedly. He says he isn't going to wait for a paper to be published, but does that mean sooner than Ketchum's paper will be published? If not, then why make a big point about it. We got Ketchum's paper, Sykes's paper, and now Bart's test results. All three are "in the works". Wheeeee! When are we going to see any of the results? It's like adding one more song to the download queue and using a dial-up connection. When will any of the songs get downloaded? We have three DNA tests in the works, but when will any of them come out for review?

      I'm reserving judgment on all of them, and all of the people fighting about them. I'll think about who is professional or not, who's unscientific or not, when something real shows up.

I sensed the guy was possibly fake first time I ever heard him speak his rehearsed BFRO animal nonsense and here seems to be only covering buddy Matt's back, while at the same time saying he knows most of the people delivering samples yet apparently won't trust the results? WTF. LOL If that isn't preconceived and bias I don't know what it is. Let me state this unequivocally, both are dead wrong on this and only sinking what little credibility their organization has left. I have no doubt now they never had any, and I'm beginning to assume cover-up that's obviously been going on for decades because there's no way these beings can be what these guys think. See it's very simple, the government knew this species is real and would be encountered by us sometimes regardless and no matter what they did, so why not do the inevitable and BEGIN the debate? Not saying it's BFRO specifically, it's more the whole organized bigfooting scene in general we've seen for decades but these guys are suddenly baddies for me now. The penny just dropped.

      The only people here who should have a problem with his article are those blindly following melba ketchum. come to think of it, I didn't really see anything new here except the possible hint that in their testing the Sierra results might differ from ketchum.
      I hope that's not the case but will respect these guys for taking the bull by the horns and testng it. would be really interesting to see what Ketchum would say to that if samples dont match. the more I think about this, if Bart and Tyler find out she's a fraud, are these people called forest friends going to still defend her? Are you Tzeith? That's crazy

      Delete
    8. You know what's crazy? People blindly following Bart while there's a whole DNA study going on now pointing arrows in another direction than the ancient ape perception, deal with that possibility and wait for the news instead of prematurely dumping anything. The tests have been repeated by several respected labs and show the same thing, there's nothing fake about it and it's as far removed from that dumb 2008 hoax as you can think. For Moneymaker to lump it in there shows what a low character he really is, and now Cutino's about to make a similar mistake burying all future Sasquatch credibility with his pal at the garbage dump.

    15. Just because people are friends doesn't mean they all have to see things the same way. Bart has been cautioning about Melba for quite a while now and I tend to trust him because he hasn't run out and promised people the moon. What he did do is say he would help get to turht of samples and share results. How anyone could have a problem with that is absolutely mindboggling.

      Another thing I notice is when Bart talks or shares his thought or facts he's very careful to respect his friends like Randles even though he may not agree with him. The guy has class and always has.

  4. Kathy's Green Chili

    Ingredients:

    Lard

    Flour

    3-4 lb pork roast

    1 - 15oz can stewed or diced tomatoes

    2 - 8oz cans chopped green chilies

    3-4 whole jalapenos

    large onion

    salt & pepper to taste

    3 cloves of garlic (or to taste)

    1- 15 oz can refried beans (optional)

    1/2 tsp. cumin

    2 tsp chili powder

    2 cans chicken stock

    Slice pork into small pieces and brown with garlic and 1/4 diced onion in lard. Add flour towards the end for thickener. Then add 3-4 cups of water, one can of chicken stock, and salt and pepper. Cook several hours until pork begins to fall apart. Chop remaining onion, slice whole jalapenos into thirds, and add with all other ingredients. This will cook for several more hours on low heat. Be cautious as the chili easily sticks to the bottom of the pan. Taste periodically for "hotness" of the jalapenos, and depending upon taste, remove when when to your desired "heat." When close to complete, if the chili is too thin, remove about two cups liquid in a bowl, whisk in more flour for thickening, and return to the chili. Serve with flour tortillas. Great poured over burritos

      The reason I ask is because I know both guys and although they are friends, Cutino told me he mostly keeps in touch with Bobo and Cliff since filming FB. I think some people are purposely trying to move the needle away from what he's trying to tell us about Ketchum.I know Bart and I just don't think he gives two shits about what bigfoots may or may not be.

    8. He doesn't support her study because she's a fraud and Cutino has been onto her for a long time.This has nothing to do with moneymaker and the bfro as Bart's a friend and if ketchum was a normal person who did the right things he would back her but she's not. Shes batshit crazy as is the blind followers who back her as she's never provided evidence for any of her claims.

      I think Bart nailed it in this article as I concur and back him completely. The guy has never let me down and another thing, (straight from Bart's mouth recently.. Sorry bart) he's very appreciative and protective of wally and feels she's been defrauding one of his very best friend he really cares about.

      Delete
    9. You can't just say "she's a fraud" and "she's batshit crazy" without providing evidence to back that up. So much of what is said about Dr. Ketchum seems to stem from a vicious rumor mill that in itself has little to no merit.

    4. Those really in the know about this species' true nature know that jerkoffs like Matt and Bart are way off the mark here, and I think the two only know it too well themselves but they have a tale and a business to run foremost. Any serious bigfooter would be applauding thorough DNA testing like this, opposing it now that it's turning around a different corner they're upset about it and fear for their own reputations thus slamming on Dr. Ketchum so badly you couldn't tell the difference from trolls in the past coming down on Meldrum. Who'd ever thought it'd come to this much fighting over the same thing, the species is what it is regardless, this isn't some damn game like the BFRO jokers seem to think it's serious and simply happens to be Hominin. You don't like that heaven knows why, tuff.

    5. Here's the thing... If it turns out she is wrong, then there is no going back, all eyes are on her. This is not like Biscardi who can slink into the shadows and claim that he was fooled. Ketchum has more to lose in this. For those who question her as a geneticist, fine.. She risks fer Job as a vet as well.

      The fact is that Bart nor Matt nor any of us outside her loop knows for sure what is going on, or how far along she is. It could be well possible that she already passed her peer review and is simply awaiting publishing.. WE DO NOT KNOW! I don't know, you guys do not know, and the BFRO sure as hell does not know. But to call out another researcher who is trying to do the same thing you are, is unprofessional and shows their demeanor.

      To them, this is not about Melba being a crack-pot. In they eyes of the main stream they are all crack-pots. This is about two things.. #1 self greed. and #2 The fact that they think it is an ape and she does not.

      Now, lets say that that other DNA study also says they are human... And BFRO makes the same claims about them, then how will you feel about Bart and Matt?

    6. She can shut everyone up simply by giving a talk at Texas A+M, where she graduated from and has faculty that she collaborated with in the past. She can talk about why her sequences are unexpected and her novel methods of extraction. People would be interested and like Jeff Meldrum said you worry about the interpretation of the results after things like this get the seal of approval.

  9. So Melba's DNA study is all a Setup? Because its taken 5years and been so secret right?
    No one should believe it because it has taken so long right? Or that Bigfoot can't be Human Hybrid. It has to be a creature an APE.
    If these people don't like how long it has taken or all the secret research.
    Why are we waiting Years for the Sierra Kill Information. Why are we waiting for a Book or Documenary? Why do people have the NDA.
    If you can not show your Evidence that you have right now then I feel you should SHUTUP or Show.
    Its freaking childish we have these "people" in the BIGFOOT field battling each other and Trash Talking each other.
    Why can't People wait for this DNA Paper from either person since we have to wait for their Evidence they say they have.

However I do agree that we all need to wait for the results of the studies/investigation to come out. If someone is wrong they can answer for it THEN. NOTHING will be settled until this happens.

  10. I an getting a little tired of all the opinions now the bottom line is Ketchum will get published or she won't and any further speculation on the contents of said study is pointless.

    Meanwhile we have the Sykes publish timetable set at November/December so clearly it is not gonna be November, luckily December is busy for me so it won't take long to get through and will be interesting to see how much pressure this puts on Ketchum if any to "git it dun".

    It's a waiting game as far as I am concerned to see what the next turn will be in this saga and then and only then will I be interested in peoples opinions again.

    1. I think the Sykes project is more or less following the announced schedule. He recently announced the collection phase was over I believe. He most likely has a journal in mind and is confident his paper will be accepted. I'd bet on February or March.

    2. Sykes isn't privy to the nightmares that Melba has gone through to get these tests done. You'll find him making the same pleas for patience once he starts testing.

    3. We will see. You may be right. Either way, because of his reputation his article will go through peer review pretty quickly. They'll check for originality and proper citation and give it the thumbs-up, I imagine. He is certainly acting like publication is a slam dunk.

      Delete
    4. But can we trust Sykes' study or will his labs make the same mistakes every lab's made in the past when the tests came back human they threw them out, thinking they were contaminated. Only Ketchum's found the good stuff with her study where all others failed before, maybe thta's why these gullible BFRO infants refuse to believe it because it doesn't fall in line with their old ridiculous ape views that simply now are outdated tales from campfire yesteryears. Wake up and join the real world BFRO, the easy dream's over now it's time to grow up.

    5. Or maybe it's because she is a fucking cat vet and Profesor Sykes is a highly respected geneticist who has been teaching at Oxford University and has written several books on genetics! You can easily google him! It's also very easy when you are on the other side of the Atlantic to not get caught up in all the Bigfoot circus that goes on and also when you act like a real scientist not leaking or making wild claims to the media or telepathically communicating with Sasquatch it kinda adds a lot more validity to your study! Man the Ketchum Koolaid sure is going down a treat here!!

      Delete
    6. Idiot. The mistake was that scientists in the past didn't think in human terms so to speak for this new species thinking they're supposed to be looking for a nonhuman primate, so everytime the results showed human they just automatically assumed non-Sasquatch and discarded it.

    7. Up until recent the only lab in America that did animal genoming was a small place in California I mean wide spread genomes there was a few small places that would do equestrian sireship and others that did dogs so it's not like there's an ass load of people doing this and most human labs wouldn't even touch animal genoming

  13. There are 2 parts to Dr. Ketchum's thesis: 1) novel DNA and 2) human mitochondrial DNA. If Dr. Ketchum can produce for audit the primary data generated by her laboratory instruments, then there is no fraud involved. It's that simple. The accuracy of her interpretation is then dependent on her level of competence and that of her associates. Verification using multiple laboratories helps ensure that lack of competence is not a signficant factor.

    The whole hybrid thesis seems speculative, but that is really secondary to what the novel DNA sequences look like. If these sequences are actually gene sequences that allow for taxonomical comparison (e.g human, chimp, gorilla, orangutan, etc.), then there is merit to what she has produced.

    2. You know he's a100% wrong because what? You Ketchum? Are you involved in the study or it's peer review? No, so how do you know? This is what he's talking about this blind faith some footers have in this study, none of us know because no of us have been involved. In fact we're all here making comments bout these people and most of us know jack shit about any of them!!! I will say that Ketchum's reputation everywhere is pretty bad and not just that but look at the real evidence that we know for sure. Ketchum is a vet with a genetics company that mainly determines how animals died, where their blood lines come from and doing paternity tests on animals and people. She claims to have come up with a revolutionary new way of DNA testing which only she does and has provided the results for the study which were leaked by a Russian scientist and then a hasty press release by Ketchum where the results were mentioned and a media circus began. Now if just reading those solid facts there doesn't raise any alarm bells you sir/madam will believe in anything. Try thinking rationally it's fun to make informed judgements based on facts it generally stops you from looking like a fucking moron. Just because Ketchum is a woman lets not cry misogynist here if a person is full of shit their gender is not an issue and all this Team Human vs Team Ape Twilight shit has nothing to do with Ketchum. These BFRO guys are just saying they have no faith in this study because if the person doing it and so they have no faith in the reported findings and think they're is a scam going on.

    4. Anon 1:57 pm, This is what Ketchum said about her methods in the press release: "...and utilized next generation sequencing to obtain 3 whole nuclear genomes from purported Sasquatch samples." Next Generation Sequencing is a legitmate approach used in many laboratories and is considered cuting edge for forensic work. It's not straight forward, because it relies on computer software to stitch the results together. People who don't understand the technology are criticizing purely out of ignorance.

      Delete
    5. Ok if you want then remove that statement and the argument is still valid, she's still an animal vet who spends most of her time testing for pedigree blood lines. She still took 5 years, there have been many people who have expressed reservations about her, it was leaked by Igor and a hasty press release shoved out making big claims before peer review or journal publication. Sounds really professional right? What if Moneymaker's sources regarding her courting tv producers and then denying it are true? What if the claims other people have made on this thread about wanting to destroy samples are true? Why is it so many people that have either submitted samples, worked with her or are scientists like Meldrum so ready to dismiss her study? You'd think those who submitted samples would be happy as a pig in shit to get any result right? I'm very sorry if I'm ignorant of genetics but I have a pretty good bullshit detector and if her methods are so readily used then her work should be easy to verify then and why the 5 year wait? When did Sykes start his study?

    8. Bart is right and the person mentioning destroying samples is right too.

      smeja told me this a while back and was very sincere and not happy about it.

      Think about it folks, why would smeja Want to get testing done somewhere else when ketchum told him through DR that a full genome was performed on the sample he turned in? Why would bart keep her from testing smejas boots? Why is bart the one to speak up with sincerity? I think its because these guys know enough about ketchum that they wouldnt go near her wIth a 10 ft pole.

  21. One big pissing contest that's all.If you really think Ketchum is full of shit just ignore what she says and wait for Sykes.
    What exactly does the BFRO have that other groups don't?They have a T.V. show and keep track of sightings wow.
    Personally I lost faith in Melba Ketchum a long time ago and never had the slightest amount of respect for the BFRO either.Sure there are some members that I can respect but the organization as a whole none thanks to Moneymaker constantly saying we know Sasquatches do this or that when in fact NOBODY knows what they are or what they do.
    The BFRO through Moneymaker run everyone else down if it goes against what they believe but congratulate Fasano on that pathetic video.
    The fact is when it comes to Bigfoot there are no facts yet.but for fuck sake shut the hell up and wait it's been 45 years since even a decent bit of footage has been seen a few more months aren't going to make any difference now.
    Make no mistake if this was not about money nobody would need to sign a NDA and if researchers want to win the pissing contest when you have evidence put it out but please shut the fuck up about what others claim to have because if it's bullshit it will be proven bullshit but until then show us something better if you have it.

  27. I say chaps, I think the scoffers are poised with knives and forks waiting to see if the paper is rejected or attacked or suffers attempts to be disproved.

    But the results of this study or Sykes', have no effect on the PGF and other good evidence of Sasquatch. The studies won't disprove the existence of such creaturs, as, to the skeptics' great annoyance, you can't prove a negative.

    The studies will only offer results on mystery samples. No doubt scoffers will jump up and down if any of the DNA studies fall short, but the party will be badly celebrated because they won't have disproven one iota of anything at all.

    If some of the samples show they are from known animals, it doesn't affect the existing good evidence and thousands of good reports.

    The scoffers will celebrate, but they can only celebrate that nothing was proven, not that anything at all was disproven. If Sykes finds a sample is from an elk, it has nothing to do with the existence of Sasquatch. It has no bearing one way or the other on whether or not the creatures exist.

    Reasonable, skeptical people who accept evidence such as the PGF won't have their minds changed if any DNA studies fail or fall short. They will know that there will be skullduggery from some corners from which attacks issue. Some scientists and members of the media will attack any results in order to sway the public.

    It also won't affect reasonable skeptical believers if either paper gets rejected by all science journals. Again skullduggery, axes to grind, knives to sharpen from some quarters, so no matter what attacks may come, it won't affect the good core evidence and reports.

    Now, if you'd like to come through to the conservatory, I've a fine port wine I'd like you to try.

    As you were, gentlemen.

    2. wonder what mike rugg thinks of all this in-fighting, who needs enemies like the jref geeks when you have friends like this. lol all I know is it didn't start from the ketchum ring, she's the one getting spat on for proving them wrong most likely so this is basically all about jealousy guess. they all want to be first and now it just looks like the ride's over for one side.

    3. I think your commments are amusing. What does Mike Rugg's opinion matter here? Isn't Bart and Mike Rugg good friends? Didn't I just recently read that Bart just presented as a favor to Rugg at his Discovery event?

      Reading this article, I didn't get the feeling Bart is looking for glory or worried at all about being beaten to the punch. More like he's trying to stave off a potential disaster.
      I didn't detect an ounce of jealousy in this piece.Just my two cents

    4. Only potential disaster is named BFRO, no wait, it is one.

  28. We will release our results before Christmas. That is not some promise to try to beat Melba to the punch, that just happens to be the timeline that has aligned with us getting results from our labs.

    Whether people think these results inform them about Melba's claims or not, is up to them. We have only tested one sample - the same hide tissue that was provided to Melba. But Melba claims to have over one hundred different samples from different sources. We are not in a position to comment on those results until all her data (hopefully physical DNA, not just print) is released. We all want great DNA proof. We are not against her getting that. We just want to make sure there is transparency - that has always been my goal.

    1. Good job Tyler, I think you guys are doing the right things and appreciate your hard work.

      Bart mentioned in article you were writing some protocols based on your experiences with these labs, I'm really looking forward to seeing what you guys went through

      Thanks for those clarifications, Keeping my fingers crossed

  29. I don't see why everybody is so critical of this article? Simply put, Bart is stating he has no faith in the study but hopes it turns out to be real. Regardless of the study, he's sumbitted a sample from Smedga to be analysed by two different labs.

    The results from his study will either validate or contradict Ketchums study.

    It's that simple and neither detracts or validates Ketchums work.

    In my opinion, Bart is the only voice of reason in this whole show.

    1. I think you pretty much right there, the problem is there seem to be so many people on here that if you offer up a tiny bit of criticism about the Ketchum study you are some kind of troll! So many footers seemed to have poured all their blind faith into Ketchum being right that they don't even have that tiny bit of heathy scepticism that says "let's just wait and see." at the end of the day I'd be really interested in the results from all 3 studies and like people keep saying it only matters when we have a full creature live or dead.

    2. A body live or dead would be murder for that poor soul so that won't happen. No matter what the species is, we'd all feel sorry for that individual being paraded around for the media like it's King Kong. Won't happen, dead on a slab somewhere maybe but not alive as it's be too unethical but there'll be videos maybe to go with this study.
