Phillip Merchant, a territorial biologist, says so far tests show the hair was likely not from a bear.
He made the assessment after comparing hair samples found at the scene, with samples of known local mammals.

anyone who sees a bigfoot is a liar.
Par for the course.
When will the scientific community take this subject seriously?
"There are new electron microscopes that could be applied and it's all a question of getting someone who is interested in doing it and what the bill is and who will pay," says Merchant.
A University of Alberta geneticist says he'll test a tuft of hair that some residents of Teslin, Yukon say belongs to a sasquatch.
"I'd be very surprised if it was something different, but you can never be 100 per cent sure, so I thought we would give this a go," said Coltman.
But there's a part of the scientist that hopes the Teslin residents really did see a sasquatch. "Well that would be kind of cool, wouldn't it? We might as well have a look-see," he said.
