"I've met some people who swear they've seen Bigfoot... I've heard stories from people who... you have to believe them."
Biologist and investigator for the television program "Finding Bigfoot" Ranae Holland spoke in Seattle about her views on Bigfoot, science and curiosity. Holland states that while she does not believe in Bigfoot as a biological organism, she is fascinated with her interactions with the people who do.
There are two recent and notable studies that have been published in peer-reviewed scientific Journals that should need to have more attention paid to them in the Bigfoot community. According to these studies, an unknown species of human occupied North America 130,000 years ago and early human ancestors practiced inter-species mating that resulted in the commingling of genetic traits.
