Alberta-Based Conservation Group Finds Evidence of Bigfoot

"The genetic analysis does not match any known species"

SHERWOOD PARK, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - April 1, 2015) -

Attention to Editors: Please note that the content of this news release is intended for entertainment purposes only and may not be factual.

Editors Note: There are two photos and one video associated with this press release.

Wildlife trail cameras, monitored by biologists at Alberta Conservation Association (ACA), captured images of a large, upright-standing animal that biologists cannot identify. Along with the trail camera footage, field biologists took detailed photographs and measurements of fresh tracks in the snow and collected hair samples from the site.

Dr. Todd Zimmerling, PhD., President and CEO of Alberta Conservation Association said, "We have received the results from the genetic analysis. It does not match any known species..."

"I have been a biologist for over 20 years, so I know the level of skepticism this announcement will elicit from our peers, but I don't have any other explanation. Between the tracks, the video and the hair samples it appears that we have evidence of the existence of a 'Bigfoot-like' creature in Alberta."

ACA is not providing any details about the exact location of the find. Says Dr. Zimmerling, "We don't want thousands of people heading out to the Conservation Site attempting to get a glimpse of Bigfoot." ACA will be contacting Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development before determining the next course of action.
