Can I Get a Side of Miso with the Sasquatch?

If all I do in this life is facilitate understanding between the field of cryptozoology (see item #3) and the common man, I'll feel vindicated in having existed.

In the hottest Sasquatch news, a Canadian lab will perform DNA testing on hairs collected in Teslin, Yukon in connection with an alleged sighting.

University of Alberta wildlife geneticist David Coltman, who agreed to do the tests as a favor to a colleague, said on Monday that scientists have cataloged the DNA of nearly all large animals in the Yukon such as bears and bison. "So we'll compare it to all of that, and if it doesn't match anything, then it's potentially interesting," said Coltman, who suspects the hair was actually left behind by a much more mundane Yukon bison.

Boy, oh boy! I can't wait for the results, and come October, there's gonna be plenty to jaw about at the 5th Annual Texas Bigfoot Conference.
