FBI: Peter Byrne Files

This is yet another historical post concerning Peter Byrne, Bigfoot and the FBI. For those who may not know, Peter Byrne is a long time bigfoot researcher who was born in Ireland. He served in the Royal Air Force during World War II, and went to Northern India to work on a tea plantation. Peter discovered his first yeti footprint in Nepal in 1948. In 1957 Byrne embarked on a three year expedition to hunt and track down the yeti; the expedition was funded by Texas oilman Tom Slick. In 1968 Byrne co-founded the International Wildlife Conservation Society, Inc. and serves as the executive director to this very day. He is often described as controversial, colorful, and passionately dedicated to the Bigfoot and Yeti search.

Mr. Byran as of 2019 and at 93 years old, is still in the hunt for Bigfoot. But what some may not know about is his interaction with the FBI.

What follows is some FBI file papers and some context. While for many this may not be new information, I feel I need to document and preserve this part of bigfoot history on our website. Also, I think the bigfoot community is growing and some may not know this information.



This letter dated Aug 26th, 1976 was an informative correspondence that contain a request for more information about the FBI and their supposed examination of some bigfoot hairs. This was in reference to the Washington Environmental Atlas done by the Army Corps of Engineers. The atlas, offed a map pin pointing all known reports of Sasquatch sightings, and notes that a sample of reputed Sasquatch hair was analyzed by the FBI and found to belong to no known animal. The atlas was published in 1975. You can read more about it and the story by Clicking Here

Byrne and the FBI had more correspondence and he ask the FBI to analyze a hair sample that his organization had in its possession.

 
Ultimately the FBI agree to analyze the Mr. Byrne hair sample and sent a correspondence stating such.


The whole exchange is rather interesting and is a part of Bigfoot history that one, who is interested in the phenomenon, should probably know about.

I have gave you a solid but basic overview of this interaction between the FBI and Peter Byrne. There are many more details to glean from the FBI files, so instead of just posting it all here I will provide a link and you can download and study it for yourself. To view the files, Click Here

I hope you found this information helpful.


Thanks
