|New Evidence that Bigfoot are chewing on Deer.|
"The tooth marks imprinted upon the bones were made by an 8’8” tall Hominin that left 16” foot prints..." --Mitchel N. Townsend BA, MA, EdD (ABD) of Centralia, Washington
In an article titled, "College Instructor presents conclusive scientific proof of Bigfoot at research conference" The Suburban Times reports that a college instructor, Mitchel N. Townsend, believes he has conclusive scientific proof of bigfoot has been chewing on deer bones, or more specifically there is evidence of mastication on ungulates by an unclassified Hominin.
Dr. Jeff Meldrum, is quick to to point out that the term "conclusive" is not entirely accurate as he shared the link to the article today on his Facebook Page.
The article reports how deer bones offer clues to how a bigfoot may have been bone-chewing on the deer population near Mount St. Helens.
Townsend and one of his former students found and analyzed three different prey bone assemblages around Mount St. Helens. He says that the tooth marks imprinted upon the bones were made by an 8’8” tall Hominin that left 16” foot prints and other forensic and behavioral information that Townsend was able to situate in current scientific research.You can read the abstract from Mr. Townsend's paper below followed by ta link to his complete paper.
He goes further and offers his evidence to any scientist who wants to re-examine his conclusions. He states “The evidence is clear, verifiable, and repeatable. We have solved this mystery with years of hard work and the latest forensic science techniques.”
We present a Forensic Biotic Taphonomy Dentition Signature field study of prey bone assemblage modifications from three different geographically separated deposition sites located in the immediate vicinity of Mount St. Helen’s, in Washington State. The bones assemblages are characterized as ungulate post mortem remains. Experimental hominin chewing studies have demonstrated close parallels with similar mastication evidence recovered from several Pleistocene and Holocene archeological bone assemblages. Recognition and understanding of Rib/Bone Peeling as a diagnostic signature of hominin mastication behavior aids greatly in the identification and classification of both pre-archeological and contemporary post mortem bone assemblages. We present diagnostic evidence that supports manual and oral peeling of cortical layers of ungulate ribs as taphonomically diagnostic hominin mastication behavior. The repetitive presence of these recognized diagnostic characteristics across multiple sites and evolutionary time frames enables hominin assignment with increasingly higher degrees of reliability.Link to the full Research Paper
