This is the sample from the bloody gauze Ami sent to Michelle, as well as Ami's zoology samples for comparison.
The partial DNA sample of the unknown specimen is an exact match to the Canada Lynx sample.
In Rusty's field interview from Episode 1, he says he went to reset a trap and was scratched by a Canada Lynx. He had to bandage it when he returned to base camp.
- This means that the human male DNA on the gauze was Rusty's and the unknown DNA was the Canada Lynx.
