A group of California researchers say they have proof that Bigfoot exists.
The men held a press conference in Fresno, California Thursday to share their evidence and ask for help with funding for DNA testing.
Allen Thomas is one of the five men who claim to have made the discovery in the High Sierra over Memorial Day weekend.
He opened the meeting with an enthusiasm.
"The reason that we're holding this press conference is because we have potentially what maybe the best evidence of the existence of what the Indians have called them for hundreds of years -Sasquatch," Thomas said.
Over the course of the hour and a half press conference the group showed photographs of what they suspect to be a the imprints of a Bigfoot�s face found on Jeffrey Gonzalez� pickup truck window.
�I think what we have right there is probably a juvenile Bigfoot," Gonzalez said.
That�s not to say he isn�t ready for the skeptics.
"People are going to see this and say that's a bear, no doubt about it, that's a bear", Gonzalez admitted, but he says the food left in the back of his truck eliminates that possibility.
"In those ice chests I had opened fried chicken, ham, bologna, loaves of bread, potato chips, open pastries, okay? From what I understand, if you leave anything like that where there's bears they would have ripped my bed apart. A homeless person, he could have made a sandwich but he didn't, alright?," Gonzalez said.
Just in case you aren�t convinced, Gonzalez and the group enlisted forensic specialist Mickey Burrows to take DNA samples from the window smudges.
The group doesn�t have the money to actually test the samples Burrows collected.
�If we can eliminate the bear, eliminate the mountain lion, the baboon, the gorilla, the monkey then once we eliminate all that, we can figure out if it's an unknown species. Then we've got it,� Gonzalez said.
