Back in the 1970s, hair and skin samples were sent to the FBI for examination on whether it was from Bigfoot. Over 40 years later, the organization has released its findings.

The FBI has released a 22-page document on a hair and tissue sample that was sent to them by the Bigfoot Information Center based out of Oregon.

It was hinted back in 1975 that the FBI had tested the sample. A letter was written to them to set the record straight and release their findings.

Will you kindly, to set the record straight, once and for all, inform us if the FBI has examined hair which might be that of a Bigfoot; when this took place; if it did take place; what the results of the analysis were,” Peter Byrne, director of the Bigfoot Information Center, wrote in a letter to the bureau. “Please understand that our research here is serious.

As it turned out, the FBI had no record of conducting tests on them. However, a letter sent by Jay Cochran Jr., assistant director of the FBI’s Scientific and Technical Services division, to Byrne in 1976 told him to send the sample to the FBI lab in Washington.

Three months later, the FBI gave their findings. But it wasn't until 2019 that the 22-page document would be released to the public after a Freedom of Information Act request that we found out all of this information, including their findings.

"The hairs are of deer family origin,” Cochran wrote.
