The Sasquatch Genome Project released its findings from a five-year study on the existence of Bigfoot in Dallas this week, and the video footage and photographs billed as "definitive proof" are causing a stir within the scientific community.

Led by veterinarian Dr. Melba Ketchum and financed by Adrian Erikson, the Sasquatch Genome Project analyzed DNA samples from an unknown hominin species it claims is the modern-day Bigfoot.

More than 100 specimens of purported Sasquatch hair, blood, skin, and other tissue types taken from 34 different hominin research sites in 14 U.S. states and two Canadian provinces were analyzed for the study.

"They're a type of people, they're a human-hybrid, we believe," Ketchum told ABC affiliate WFAA. "And all of the DNA evidence points to that. And they can elude us, so if you get [video footage] at all, it can be fleeting."

The Genome Project was, however, able to capture some footage of the creatures, specifically a mother and daughter pair in Kentucky. Ketchum and her team collected thermal images and daytime and nighttime video of the so-called "furry people."

But some believe the study is "a joke."

"She is a laughing stock of people that are of a community that are already kind of wacko. This was not reported in any scientific way whatsoever," Todd Disotell, a professor of anthropology at New York University, told ABC News. "It's complete junk science, and then she misinterprets it. She hasn't published in peer-reviewed papers on this stuff. I don't know how this got put together."

But Ketchum and her team aren't worried about the naysayers.

"People have chosen not to believe it. They can't find it in their minds to think these things exist," Erickson told CBS.
