Yeti DNA Solved its Mystery

The suspense and intrigue surrounding the real nature of the legendary Abominable Snowman may be coming to an end shortly. Scientists have found via Yeti DNA testing that the creature may actually be an ancient species of polar bear. Called the Yeti, the strange and grotesque creature has been part of the folklore of the people who live in the shadow of the Himalayas.

It has been described as a hirsute, primate that is huge and wild in nature. A professor at Oxford University decided to test Yeti hair samples to get to the bottom of the mystery. Hair samples from the regions of Ladakh and Bhutan were analyzed. 

The surprising results speak for themselves. The DNA tests were based on comparison with many other animals’ gene sequences stored in an extensive database. It turned out to be a complete match with the jawbone of an eon old polar bear of Norway. It was 120,000 years ago that the brown bear whose hair samples were collected from the Himalayas and the polar bear had parted company. There is even a hunch that the species are a product of hybridization. 

The resulting data sounds rather bizarre. Were there polar bears and brown bears prowling the Himalayas? There have been footprint sightings and even an encounter between an explorer and a Yeti. The researcher who did the recent DNA tests will be publishing a book on his quest for Bigfoot soon.
