British Professor Claims Yeti Is A Polar Bear Hybrid

 Sightings of this assumed ape-like cryptid have been occurring since the 19th century, gaining in popularity in the 20th century only after the advent of exploration to the region.

While most accounts of this cryptid have offered up striking similarities to the American Sasquatch, as well as other primate-like cryptids around the world, one new account by a British scientist is adding a whole new element to the legend of the Yeti.

According to genetics professor Bryan Sykes of Oxford University, the legendary Himalayan Yeti may not be an ape-like creature after all. He is leaning more toward Ursidae, or bears to be exact – and he says he has the DNA evidence to prove it.
