ITS existence has so far only been proven by fuzzy photos, dubious accounts and unfathomable legend, but now scientists claim they have genuine evidence of Bigfoot – and the answer lies in the creature's DNA.

But now, even the sternest non-believer is sure to be convinced of Bigfoot's existence, as scienctific evidence has provided an abundance of persuasion with the latest DNA evidence.
