Hair Analysis - Part 1

Hair analysis is a much-debated topic among researchers. A common complaint is that scientists just won't come out and say it's sasquatch hair. They only say it's unknown.

The answer is: It's unknown. Any reputable scientist will never officially label a hair sample with the name of an unknown creature. If, and until, a known, acknowledged, classified sasquatch is presented to scientists for study; hair, DNA, and all that "stuff" will remain UNKNOWN.

We will sometimes get "indeterminate identity". This is a step forward that indicates the acceptance among some of an unknown animal. 

So, since there are no "known" samples of sasquatch hair, the next best thing is the results that tell us what it is NOT.  So we will know for certain, it is not a bear, not a wolf, not a human, not a horse, etc., etc., etc.

There was a study done of samples of hair gathered that was believed to be a sasquatch.

Sample 1: Hairs collected from Bluff Creek. Ivan Sanderson had Dr. F. Martin Duncan, affiliated with the London Zoo, analyze these. They could not be matched to any known North American mammal. Dr. Duncan said they could possibly be from an unknown large primate, based on common features of that order.

Sample 2: Hairs collected from central Idaho in 1968. This sample was sent to Ray Pinker, instructor of Police Science at California State College in Los Angeles. He determined that the hair did not match any known animals in his collection. He also stated that the hair showed some characteristics that are common to human and non-human primates.  The hairs were reported to be light-colored and showed variation in color and thickness. There was a long length that was not like human hair but exhibited a human-like scale pattern. It lacked a continuous medullary core. The sample he looked at contained both coarse guard hairs and fine under hairs, which is not characteristic of primates.

Sample 3:
Hair from Northern California, 1993. This was examined by Dr. Sterling Bunnell, MD, a member of the California Academy of Sciences. He examined the hair by light microscopy under both direct and transmitted illumination. They were compared with human, chimpanzee, gorilla, orangutan, and pygathrix monkey hair. He found the hair sample to be related to the human chimpanzee-gorilla group but was clearly different from each of them.
The surface and internal structure seemed more like gorilla hair than human or chimpanzee. Dr. Bunnell also commented on how remarkable the hair was in the extremely fine and diffuse pigmentation and the absence of observable medullary structure. The other species show dark melanin clumps and medullary streaks.

Jeff Meldrum concluded that these indeterminate hairs displayed notably uniform characteristics. They likely represent an uncatalogued single species of animal as their source.
