It looks like Spike Tv may have to write someone a 10 million dollar check. There is a scientist out there that says they have DNA proof of 'Bigfoot'.

Veterinarian Melba S. Ketchum  has just finished a five year study of DNA samples that were at the locations of Bigfoot sightings. She came to a rather surprising conclusion.

Ketchum, who has 30 years of experience in genetic research and forensics, and her team at DNA Diagnostics in Nacogdoches, Texas found in the hair, blood and urine samples that they say could only come from a Sasquatch-like creature.

According to Ketchum, who says she came into the project skeptical, the hairy beast most likely has its origins in a human woman mating with an unknown primate about 1,500 years ago.

Some are dubious of the finding. Others want the Bigfoot classified as an indigenous species and receive some protection from all of the crazy Bigfoot hunters out there trying to make the big score.

Ketchum hopes to have her research published in a peer-reviewed journal, which would give it more legitimacy. But so far she hasn't been able to. Until then, we're not quite sure we are going to officially welcome Bigfoot into the Animal Kingdom. Here is a video of the cnn report on the findings.
