Bigfoot DNA Tester Melba Ketchum Turns to Writing Sasquatch Fantasy Fiction

THUMBNAIL_IMAGESome of you may recall Dr. Melba Ketchum as the veterinarian turned DNA analyst who self-published a paper decoding what was purportedly Sasquatch genetic material. Dr. Ketchum has now turned her attention to writing fiction. In a short post published to her Facebook page, Ketchum describes the book Mystic Forest Wishes (self-published via CreateSpace – get it here.) and what got her interested in writing it:

Via Cryptomundo:

Now for news that some of you will like and I am not sure how others will react. The stress level has been incredible over the last few years, what with all of the lies and attacks that have been leveled against me. I have tried to stick with strictly science throughout this entire ordeal. In all honesty, I know so much more about the Sasquatch people. I have met many habituators also. I have stayed silent on the majority of the field data that I personally know to be true and will continue to do so at this time.

Three Oklahoma Men Arrested After Accidental Shooting During Bigfoot Hunt

6a00d8341c51c053ef00e54f1fdda88833-800wiSounds a little Squatchy to me.

Via HuffPo:

The Rogers County, Oklahoma Sheriff’s Department arrested three men after one of them was accidentally shot. Authorities are still searching for the gun used in the shooting.

According to Sheriff Scott Walton, the three men were hunting Bigfoot late Saturday night, when one of them was spooked by what he thought might be the legendary beast and fired his weapon, hitting his friend in the back.

“When you start off with an explanation like that, do you believe anything after that?” Sheriff Walton said.

The men immediately contacted 911 and met emergency responders on a nearby interstate. The wounded man is expected to survive.

Maine Newspaper from 1886 Reports Killing of Sasquatch-like Monster

20-10The Bangor Daily News digs deep into the vaults and returns with a tall tale of a vicious, hairy wild man. Take it with a grain of salt: “Wild Man” stories were part and parcel of the late nineteenth century rural press.

WATERVILLE, Maine — In the same month the Statue of Liberty was dedicated in New York in 1886, a handful of newspapers in New England published stories about a deadly encounter in the Maine woods involving what today likely would be termed “Bigfoot” or “Sasquatch.”

The story of the 10-foot-tall “wild man” with 7-foot-long arms and hair growing all over his face and body was reported in broadsheets of the time after first gracing the pages of the Waterville Sentinel, a weekly paper that no longer exists. The Waterville Morning Sentinel was established 18 years later in 1904.

Tales of these seldom-seen, mysterious apelike beasts are found in Maine folklore, according to experts, but they are more prevalent in California, Washington and Oregon tales.

Sasquatch and the Seatco Indians: Conversation with Henry Franzoni

henry-franzoniFor a while now I have had an intuition that if Sasquatch are real, they must be more intelligent than human beings. If they were simply rare, we would have gained much better evidence of their existence by now. For example wolverines are exceedingly rare, especially in the lower 48, yet they can be captured with camera traps, just like endangered tigers can be in Asia.

Of course Sasquatch might not be real, and the sightings could be some form of mass hallucination. But I do find the foot print evidence, especially ones analyzed by Researcher Jeffery Meldrum to be very compelling. The best casts seem to display traits of a peculiar anatomy consistent with what a giant humanoid might have to accommodate massive weight: Mid-tarsal breaks, different loading structure, and ankle bones further forward from the heel.

The sightings and the footprints pointed to a real creature, yet the extreme elusiveness pointed to something much more advanced than an upright walking gorilla.… Read the rest

Dr. Melba Ketchum Reveals More Bigfoot Proof

Melba Ketchum’s last batch of Bigfoot evidence received a lukewarm reception, to put it very mildly, and now she’s back with more.

Via Unexplained Mysteries:

The Sasquatch Genome Project has revealed DNA test results along with several new pictures and videos.

Funded by businessman Adrian Erickson, the five-year $500,000 study has sought to find definitive evidence that an unknown species of hominid is stalking the forests of North America.

In a new reveal this week Dr Melba Ketchum and her team have announced long-awaited DNA test results which appear to indicate that Bigfoot is neither human nor ape but a cross between the two.

“We want people to understand this is a serious study,” said Ketchum. “This creature does not follow general rule. What it does do is very different. We think it is human-hybrid. That is our theory.”

The group claims to have documented the behavior of two of the creatures in Kentucky and believes that there are thousands of them all across the United States.

Hairy Man-Beasts Cause Electronic Interference?

imagesA fascinating bit of observation regarding Sasquatch-like creatures and the interference with electronic devices that supposedly accompanies them. Maybe there’s a reason Bigfoot’s picture is always blurry.

Via Mysterious Universe:

In Jon’s very own words: “We liaised very closely with Geoff Lincoln, an absolutely invaluable researcher based in the area. We gave him our planned arrival time, and asked if any of the eye-witnesses would be prepared to speak to us. Much to our ever-lasting delight, five out of the six were.”

Geoff also showed Jon no less than three locations where sightings of the beast-man had occurred: “We carried out a thorough series of photographic mapping exercises, and did our best to fend off the incessant inquiries from the press. Just after lunchtime, a TV crew from a local television company arrived and filmed interviews with our investigation team. It was only after they had gone that we realized something very strange was happening.”

Jon was not wrong.

The Origin of the Bigfoot Legend

via Today I Found Out

Stories of a giant, hairy creature that appears half man and half ape have existed in various parts of the world for many centuries. In fact, the only continent not to have stories of “wild men” is Antarctica. In the Himalayas, it’s the Yeti. In Canada, it’s the Sasquatch. And in the northwest United States, it’s Bigfoot. Bigfoot is described by believers as being between six and eight feet tall with a large forehead and pronounced brow, like a cave man’s, and a rounded, crested head like a gorilla’s. He is covered in brown or red hair and has enormous feet that are his namesake, with the biggest estimation at a whopping two feet long by eight inches wide. Some “witnesses” claim that the five-toed Bigfoot prints they saw on the ground were accompanied by claw marks (not unlike a five-toed, clawed paw print of a bear—but rational explanations aren’t as fun).

British Teen Photographs Mysterious Apelike Creature In Public Park

A case of confusion? A hoax? Or the emergence of a new, adorable little cousin to Sasquatch? The Telegraph reports:

Terri Leigh Cox, 17, says that she saw something hunched over and bounding around on all fours from her bedroom window in Dorchester, Dorset, and took a photograph of it on her mobile phone. The teenager said that the park’s visitor, which she insisted was not a dog or cat, then ran up a tree and out of sight. Shaun Bessant, her boyfriend, went out to investigate but found no sign of the “monkey–like” creature.

Miss Cox said: “It was definitely a monkey because you could tell by its hunched back and the way it scampered across the field and up the tree…It could have escaped if someone was keeping it as a pet.”

The park is about 10 miles from the Monkey World attraction in Wool. A spokesman for Monkey World said that all of its monkeys and apes were accounted for.

Bigfoot DNA Hunters Push For Yeti Rights

Via Discovery News, a social movement is born:

A team of researchers led by Melba Ketchum, a Texas veterinarian, claims to have not only conclusively proven the existence of Bigfoot through genetic testing, but also that the mysterious monster is a half-human hybrid, the result of mating with modern human females about 15,000 years ago.

Ketchum sees her research as an important first step in obtaining legal status for Bigfoot, which she believes are an undiscovered Native American population. Ketchum issued a statement demanding that the “Government at all levels must recognize them as an indigenous people and immediately protect their human and Constitutional rights against those who would see in their physical and cultural differences a ‘license’ to hunt, trap, or kill them.”

Ketchum believes that “The Sasquatch people are more like us than they are different. The Sasquatch people have their own language, traditions, and rituals.”
