A global team of scientists will go monster hunting in Loch Ness next month

A global team of scientists will go monster hunting in Loch Ness next month 86

A worldwide team of scientists plans to undertake a DNA hunt for the Loch Ness Monster. The scientists will scour Loch Ness and use environmental DNA in an experiment that might finally determine if the fabled monster does exist.

Searching For The Loch Ness Monster River

eDNA Sampling Already Established as Monitoring Tool

eDNA sampling has been established already as a monitoring tool for marine life including that of sharks and whales. When a creature passes by the environment, it always leaves small fragments of DNA from its fur, scales, skin, or feces. The DNA is captured then sequenced, and it can be used to identify the creature that left it as it compares the sequence obtained to a larger database of all known genetic sequences that were taken from hundreds of thousands of organisms.

The first ever record that was written about the Loch Ness monster related to St Columba, an Irish monk. He was said to have banished the monster, described as a beast that lived in water, into the Loch Ness during the 6th century.

A Lot of Photographic Evidence Has Been Captured of Loch Ness Monster

There have been numerous so-called photographs that prove the existence of the Loch Ness monster with the most famous of them being known as the “surgeon’s photo.” This was a photograph taken in 1934, and it revealed a head that was on a long neck coming out of the water. It was not until 60 years later than it was found to be a hoax, using the model of a sea monster that had been attached to a toy submarine and put into the loch.

Many attempts have been made to track down the Loch Ness monster over the years. One of the most notable of them was in 2003.

One of the most recent attempts at tracking down the elusive creature was two years ago when a high tech marine drone was used. They did find a monster, but it was not the Loch Ness monster that has been talked about. The discovery was actually a replica that had been used in the movie “The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes,” that had been sunk in the loch 50 years ago.

New Team Is Made Up of Scientists from UK, USA, Denmark, Australia, and France

The new team searching for the Loch Ness monster involves scientists from the UK, United States, Denmark, Australia, and France. All have expressed their keenness to take part in the expedition and said it is much more than a hunt for a fabled monster. Finding evidence of the Loch Ness monster is at the heart of the project, but there is also a great deal of knowledge to learn about the many organisms that are in Loch Ness.

The team are hoping to document new species of life, with the emphasis being on bacteria, and said that they would provide data on the extent of new species that are invasive, which was seen in the Loch recently, including Pacific pink salmon.

Four friends were scared by a Bigfoot-like creature

A strange creature resembling a Bigfoot scared the inhabitants of the Canadian province of British Columbia. This is reported by the Canadian newspaper The Star.

On the evening of December 25, 2020, four friends driving along the highway near the city of Silverton noticed a huge figure on the side of the road. According to them, she resembled a very large man or a grizzly bear standing on its hind legs. The creature quickly dropped to four legs and disappeared into the thickets. Friends stopped the car, photographed his footprints and sent the pictures to cryptozoologists looking for Bigfoot.

We found a wide variety of tracks, and some looked especially disturbing. These were the footprints of a two-legged creature leading into the forest in a straight line. I was a little scared when I saw their size. And they were definitely not bear paws, Erica Spink-D’Souza, an eyewitness said.

According to the head of Bigfoot Field Research Group and the host of the program “Finding Bigfoot” on Animal Planet, Matt Moneymaker, forgery or pranking is out of the question. 

“The untouched snow surrounding the footprints proves that the footprints are not fabricated by humans,” he explains. – The length of the stride exceeds the capabilities of a person trying to move through snowdrifts up to the knee. The traces of the dragging and the depth show that the jumping hare could not have left them. The linear nature of the tracks indicates that it was not a bear.”

Ten days after the observation, a group of cryptozoologists from Okanagan visited the scene. They examined the tracks and concluded that a moose could have left them. 

“Eyewitnesses could see a large elk looking ahead and mistake her for a humanoid figure,” says Moneymaker. 

At the same time, he notes that moose tracks are not enough for the final conclusion.

In 2018, it was reported that a resident of the American state of Montana went into the forest and almost died from a bullet from a Bigfoot hunter.

 “If I see something that looks like Bigfoot, then I just shoot him,” he explained.

Scientist finds polar bear DNA in Bigfoot

Scientist finds polar bear DNA in Bigfoot 100

British scientists examined yeti DNA and found a strong similarity to polar bear DNA. For analysis, they took the wool of a creature that was killed by a hunter in the Himalayas 30 years ago.

Brian Sykes, a geneticist at the University of Oxford, examined the DNA of the Bigfoot Yeti and found similarities to the DNA of a polar bear, according to Daily Star.

For analysis, Sykes took the wool of a creature killed by a hunter in the Himalayas 30 years ago, from which they made a stuffed animal. The result showed a match with the DNA of an ancient polar bear that became extinct at least 40,000 years ago. The geneticist suggests that the Yeti is a hybrid of a brown bear and a polar bear that arrived in the mountain range from the Arctic north many years ago. For this reason, it behaves differently from an animal of this species.

Now the professor wants to obtain samples of Bigfoot hair from all over the world in order to subject them to the most difficult DNA tests and continue research in this direction.

In 2019, the FBI released documents revealing the results of analysis of hair and biologic tissue allegedly belonging to Bigfoot. The samples were sent in 1976 by yeti hunter Peter Byrne. Research results showed that they belonged to a deer.

Bigfoot is a large humanoid creature from modern folklore, which is believed to live in forest or mountain areas that are inaccessible to humans. It is believed that it is an ancient hominid that has survived to our time, but scientists are skeptical about the likelihood of its existence. In particular, all cases of its observation or possible traces are explained by hoax or mistaken recognition of animal tracks.

When was the last time a Bigfoot was seen?

In 2020, the appearance of Bigfoot was noted in Australia, the relic forests of Canada, in the west of the USA, in the north of Scandinavia.

In the spurs of the Himalayas, wild hairy people of small stature were seen, resembling a Flores man (fossil dwarf species of people. Also known as the “hobbit” by analogy with the creatures invented by J. Tolkien. – Ed.).

In October, locals informed that in the jungle of Africa, in the Congo region, there is an upright creature similar to a Yeti.

Traces of Bigfoot, his refuge are regularly found in Komi. Yeti visits have recently been reported from eyewitnesses from the Karelian Isthmus and the border zone near Vyborg, where there are dungeons and a huge bunker near an abandoned military airfield.

Strange photo was taken by tourists near Loch Ness

Inverness, December 23. A new photograph of a mysterious creature “the size of a very large seal” in Loch Ness has been announced as another official sighting of the Loch Ness monster.

Tourist Karen Scott, returning from Aberdeen, noticed a strange creature in the Scottish Loch Ness. The woman managed to capture her observation in the photo. At first, Scott took what he saw for a big bird, she admitted to reporters. According to the traveler, while she took out the camera, the mysterious creature managed to submerge itself under the water.

“By the time I turned on the camera on my phone, it was slowly submerged under the water and then reappeared at a short distance,” she shared.

Scott and her friend compared the creature they saw to a large seal, but workers at the lake have denied this assumption. According to experts, seals rarely get that far into Loch Ness.

The tourist flow to these places in 2020 was much lower than in previous years due to the coronavirus pandemic, experts studying Nessie noted. Despite this circumstance, during this year, travelers recorded a large amount of evidence of the existence of the Loch Ness monster, scientists were surprised.
