Yeti hair?

More at Telegraph

The hunt for the elusive creature [Yeti] – said to be 10ft tall, part man, part ape and otherwise known as the Abominable Snowman – has frustrated scientists for decades.

Now tests at Oxford Brookes University on hairs said to be from a Yeti in India have failed to link the strands with any known species.

Ape expert Ian Redmond, who is leading the research, said: “The hairs are the most positive evidence yet that a Yeti might possibly exist. It may be that the region this animal is inhabiting is remote enough for it to remain undiscovered so far.”

The two hairs – 33mm and 44mm long – were found in a jungle in the mountains of north-east India five years ago.
