  Bigfoot is real says US expert
Updated 02 October 2003, 10.48
There's been rumours about Bigfoot for years
A US police scientist thinks he's found proof that Bigfoot is real.

Investigator Jimmy Chilcutt has studied six sets of footprints left by what could be Bigfoot, and he thinks they're the real thing.

He says a footprint found in Washington on the East coast of the US is a really close match to one found on the other side of the country in the state of California.

Chilcutt added that a special pattern on the prints told him they weren't made by a person with big feet or any other kind of monkey or ape.

There have been loads of sightings of Bigfoot

He says the only animal with prints like the ones he looked at is a howler monkey, so he knows that a Bigfoot-type of animal is around somewhere.

Lots of footprints, photographs, hair samples and even blood samples have been found by people searching for the animal, but most of the evidence has proved fake.

Sightings have also been questioned, because it's thought some people are so obsessed with finding Bigfoot that they see it even though it isn't really there.
