(Here's an update in the news regarding the Bryan Sykes DNA study. This is not wriiten by anyone on Team Tracker. The writer it appears is not aware of the fact that the Smeja DNA came back as bear neat.)
|Dr. Bryan Sykes,|
Here's some updates on two events related to Sasquatch here which have gained the attention of many researchers.. The first news is an exciting update that the results of the Oxford-Lausanne Collateral Hominid which is being conducted by Bryan Sykes, a Professor of Genetics at the University of Oxford, will most likely be published in late October or November. Bigfootology president Rhettman Mullis, who has been helping to receive and collect alleged Sasquatch samples for Sykes's study, had announced on May 12 that the reception of samples for the project was now closed and that the last alleged Sasquatch sample sent to Sykes for analysis was a large sample discovered on the New Mexico side of the Navajo Reservation.
Mr. Mullis informed us that the reason that publication of the results for the study was delayed was due to an incredible response to alleged Sasquatch sample requests, which had resulted in a continued supplying of samples which lasted past the previously set due date. Interestingly, Professor Sykes has been visiting North America recently in order to speak with some of the researchers who have submitted samples, and he has also met with US Fish and Wildlife officials at one of their main laboratories located in Melford, Oregon. It has been revealed that Professor Sykes was in California very recently to speak with Justin Smeja, and also to be filmed for a documentary detailing his study which will be released on BBC Channel 4 once the results of the many samples tested by Sykes are published in a scientific journal.
As noted in a previous article, avid hunter, outdoorsman, and hunting guide Justin Smeja claimed to have shot an adult and juvenile Sasquatch near Gold Lake, California in 2010. Although this story may sound outlandish, many people (including some credible and well respected people in the "Bigfoot community") have expressed trust in Justin's story and have said that he has been extremely open and willing to discuss it, as well as being able to pass a polygraph test. During the alleged encounter, Justin was accompanied by a driver of the truck which they were in who has also been willing to discuss the encounter.
\When they witnessed the adult, Justin opened the truck door and shot the primate (which then ran away wounded). While searching for the adult body, Justin and the driver allegedly encountered two large headed juvenile wood apes which "mumbled" to one another as they were apparently searching for their parent. Going against the driver's will, Justin Smeja shot one of the juveniles which rolled down to his boot. Justin then realized that he had just killed a very human-like juvenile primate, and was disgusted with himself.
It has also been reported that there was the threat of game wardens visiting to see what happened. Allegedly due to these factors, he then frantically hid the juvenile's body in a bush, planning to return. When returning a few weeks later to look for the remains, Justin found a piece of flesh (that he did say may have not belonged to the animal which he allegedly killed as he had found it weeks later and after snow had hit the area) which later was found to have belonged to a black bear. However, Justin also has the boots which he wore that day, which had blood on them from where the dead juvenile wood ape allegedly rolled onto them. Samples of this blood were sent for analysis by Professor Sykes, which I had previously discussed in this article. So is it possible that Sykes has discovered that the blood on Justin's boots are of an unknown species of ape (and please note that the term ape encompasses humans), and this is the reason that he has spent so much time and money into traveling to America in order to speak with Justin and other researchers? Perhaps, but this will not be known until the results of the Oxford-Lausanne Collateral Hominid Project are published in a scientific journal this fall.
