The FBI has released nearly two dozen documents it had on the mythical North American biped known as Bigfoot. These include descriptions of encounters and details of analysis that was done on hair samples.

What do the documents say?

The first document, a letter dated Dec. 15, 1976, from former Assistant FBI Director Jay Cochran Jr. to Peter Byrne, the director of the Bigfoot Information Center and Exhibition in Oregon, mentions 15 "unidentified hairs and tissue" samples that Byrne wanted the FBI to analyze. Cochran agreed, and asked Byrne to send the samples to an FBI lab in Washington, D.C.
