It’s been 35 years since Mount St. Helens erupted in the deadliest volcanic eruption in U.S. history, but if what a Washington college professor claims is true, the volcano may become famous for something even bigger – the location where definitive proof of the existence of Bigfoot was found.
Mitchel Townsend, a continuing education teacher at Centralia College, says he found a stack of animal bones while on a hike near Ryan Lake which is about 12 miles from the volcano’s crater. The stack of bones itself was odd because most animals scatter bones after eating the meat, but what caught Townsend’s eye was the big human-like teeth marks on the bones.
Townsend has been researching Bigfoot for a few years and is working on a paper explaining his findings. Those also include the findings of two of his students who came across two more stacks of bones. When Townsend returned with them, he claims they also found footprints measuring 16 inches in length. The distance between them and depth of the impression suggested to Townsend they were made by a creature 8 feet, 8 inches tall.
Wildlife experts who inspected the bones say the teeth marks are not from any local animals. This is where Townsend gets controversial. He says the dental evidence and bone stacking suggests the creature is part human and plans to prove it is a hominin species that evolved from the the breeding of Native Americans and a giant ape.
My theory is it’s not an ape, it’s a hybrid that has been interbreeding with Native Americans for the last 80,000 years. That’s why it is so smart and it has human teeth.
He claims his paper is based on four years of research and forensic evidence and says the bones are available to anyone who wants to inspect them.
No word on when Townsend’s paper will be published but I’m sure a lot of people will have bones to pick with him about those bones and his controversial theory.
