Bigfoot, FBI, Jay Cochran Jr discussed on Steeven Orr Else


A tiny piece of skin burn wrote that his organisation couldn't identify what kind of animal that came from and was hoping the FBI might analyze it. He also wanted to know if the FBI and analyzed suspected bigfoot hair before and if so what the bureau's conclusion was according to Benjamin Radford Deputy Editor of Skeptical Inquirer magazine burn was one of the more prominent bigfoot researchers at the time in two thousand nineteen. A lot of people think a bigfoot is being sort of silly in a joke or whatever else but in the nineteen seventies. Bigfoot was really really popular that was when the six million dollar man had a cameo by bigfoot this was also after Roger. Patterson and Robert gimlan released their famous video footage in nineteen sixty seven supposedly showing bigfoot in northern California. It's worth noting that the original evidence that launched the bigfoot craze a trail of oversized footprints discovered in the same region in nineteen fifty eight was revealed to be a prank by lager. Ray L. Wallace in two thousand two. That's that's when it was revealed. He didn't go back in time. And or anything anyway. Many people believe that the bigfoot creature in the Patterson Gimblett film was a costume prankster. As well burn has always believed. The footage was real. Jay Cochran Jr. Assistant Director of the FBI scientific and Technical Services Division wrote back to burn. He couldn't find any evidence of the FBI analyzing suspected bigfoot. Here and that the F. B. I. Usually only examined physical evidence related to criminal investigations. Still that sometimes made exceptions in the interest of research in scientific inquiry said Cochran and Cochran said he'd make such an exception for burn unsurprisingly. Cochran found that the hair didn't belong to bigfoot in early. Nineteen seventy seven. He sent the hair back to burn along with his scientific conclusion. They hairs are of dear family origin for decades later. The bureau has declassified. It's bigfoot file about this analysis. Now the article goes on to say to be clear. This is not evidence that the F. B. I. endorsed the existence of bigfoot any more than the US military's decades long investigation of unexplained aerial phenomena popularly known as UFO's is an endorsement of the existence of aliens all it means is that the FBI did a favor to a bigfoot researcher. Radford says there's nothing wrong with that but it shouldn't be mistaken for defacto government endorsement of the reality of bigfoot. Even so the article continues. Bigfoot believers may be tempted to spin it that way. They love the idea that there's a smoking gun in the FBI files see look. Bigfoot must be real otherwise the FBI wouldn't have taken it so seriously. He continues well the F. B. I didn't send out a team of investigators to look for bigfoot. They agreed to run analysis of fifteen hairs to add more layers to what is already an unusual case ninety three year old burn doesn't seem to remember receiving the FBI's response that the big hair was actually deer hair because burn had been out of the country for several months. Cochran sent the letter to the Executive Vice President of the Academy of Applied Science which was associated with Burns bigfoot organization. The executive wrote that he would give burn copies of the correspondents when he returned yet when the F. B. I. released its bigfoot file which was exclusively about Burns inquiry on June fifth. Two Thousand Nineteen Burn reacted as though he were hearing that it was deer hair for the first time. Obviously I can't speak for Peter Byrne Radford says but if you're GONNA make a big enough deal about this unknown specimen to give it to the FBI then you're not GonNa want to publicize the fact that turned out to be a dear. That's the end of the article. Now here's the thing. This article obviously had an from the very beginning as you read through it. You can tell that this article is saying. Bigfoot doesn't exist these people are crazy and this Peter Byrne guy is obviously a liar. So shame on you. History Channel Dot Com. I understand you're not a news site and you don't have to be biased. Even if you were a new site you can publish opinionated pieces. But don't do that man come on. Don't do that anyway. That's what I learned today. Not that the F. B. I. Investigated bigfoot but that the history channel can act like a bunch of jerks sometimes boo history channel Boo boo. And now it's time for ask the atvs the part of the show which Abner Franks and his father who's also named Abner answer questions from you the listener and now direct from the sales floor of the Franks and beans comic shop. I present to you the folks and welcome once.
