Dear Gentle Readers,
Madame L has just heard that some European scientists are planning a DNA study of Sasquatch-Yeti-Bigfoot supposed hairs.
As many of you know, Madame L is fascinated with the idea of Bigfoot and is planning an expedition into the wilds of western Washington to find a specimen herself.
The article notes that Mark Thomas, a professor of evolutionary genetics at University College London (who is not connected to the Bigfoot project) was "unsure how likely it was anyone might have actual Yeti hairs."
(Madame L sees that irony has not completely died, after all.)
Thomas did admit, though, that "... It's not as insane an idea as many might think, but the chances are pretty small."
Madame L says to all Bigfoot researchers, "Seek on!" And if you do have any Sasquatch hairs, please submit them to Bryan Sykes of Oxford University, who is doing the hair DNA study with Lausanne Museum of Zoology scientists.
