Yeti Is No More
The scientists led by Tianying Lan of the University at Buffalo in New York, write in their report, “we unambiguously show that this sample is from a bear that groups with extant Himalayan brown bear.” One studied 'Yeti' hair sample held by a museum actually belongs to a dog. The team goes on to say, “This study represents the most rigorous analysis to date of samples suspected to derive from anomalous or mythical ‘hominid’-like creatures, strongly suggesting the biological basis of the yeti legend as local brown and black bears,” This is he second genetic study of alleged Yeti samples, the first completed in 2014. That investigation also concluded study samples belonged to a bear. Chalk another myth lodged in man's archaic collective unconscious exploded by science. Next stop on the train to rubbish: 'Merica's analogue, Bigfoot.
