Dear GYA, It's a mystery that has plagued mankind for centuries, but my team of researchers at the Sasquatch Genome Project recently released indisputable DNA evidence, along with a series of grainy cellphone clips, that proves without a doubt the existence of weird-looking bears. Sure, there will be nonbelievers. But, if you can suspend your disbelief for just a moment and look closely at the evidence, you will sort of make out what appears to be a real, live bear. Anything happening this weekend to celebrate this remarkable discovery? - Dr. Melba Ketchum, Sasquatch Genome Project
