  • Evidence of 'jungle yeti' found

    I'd like to see DNA testing done on the hairs.

    "If someone gets into your house, which would you rather have, a handgun or a telephone? You can call the police if you want, and they'll get there, and they'll take a picture of your dead body. But they can't get there in time to save your life. The first line of defense is you." ~ Tom Palmer

    "It's not an endlessly expanding list of rights – the "right" to education, the "right" to health care, the "right" to food and housing. That's not freedom, that's dependency. Those aren't rights, those are the rations of slavery – hay and a barn for human cattle." ~ Alexis De Tocquiville

    Hair analysis has its drawbacks. For one thing, I *think* they need the follicle to do DNA testing, but I could be wrong about that. Still, analysis of the hair itself might tell you what it isn't but it won't tell you what it is. Also, hairs from different parts of the same animal can be quite different. Belly hairs can be different from back hairs, etc. Unfortunately, the only thing that would convince the scientific community of yeti/bigfoot is a body.

    "There aren't many problems than can't be fixed
    with $700 and a .30-06." -- Jeff Cooper. Or maybe it was his daughter Lindy. I can't remember.

      They just recently discovered some new type of chimp/gorilla. So it shows it is definitely possible there could be large apes out there undiscovered. We are talking about highly intelligent creatures who are smart enough to remain hidden.

        Absolutely. There has been some analysis on footprint casts taken in North America by a fingerprint expert named Jimmy Chilicutt. He set out to de-bunk the whole bigfoot thing. He ended up convincing himself they're real. I read a proverb somewhere, Japanese or Tibetan, I'm not sure, that said, "What is the wisest animal? The one no man has seen."
