“Oriental yeti” shipped for testing

Hairless, bear-sized creature found in China


A hairless creature the size of a bear has been sent for testing after emerging from the woods in north central China, the Times of London reports. Trapped by hunters in Sichuan province, it was originally thought to be a bear, but has a tail like a kangaroo.“It also does not sound like a bear — it has a voice like a cat and it is calling all the time — perhaps it is looking for the rest of its kind or maybe it’s the last one,” hunter Lu Chin said. It will be put through DNA tests in Beijing.

  2. The Oriental Yeti looks unfortunately like a lab experiment not a new species!
