Oriental Yeti is No Primate, but Crypto-like




Its already got a nickname, "oriental yeti". Not that we think this creature is anyway related to the Bigfoot, Sasquatch or Yeti, but we thought this would appeal to your crypto-sensibilities. Even though the name is a bit of a misnomer, everybody here at the club thought this particular case was fascinating. This creature will be going through DNA testing to help identify it.

On another note you will notice the original article at the Times Online is dated for tomorrow, proving that our physicist at BLC Labs were serious about building that time machine.

Here is an exerpt from the Times Online UK

A bizarre creature, dubbed the “oriental yeti”, has baffled scientists after emerging from ancient woodlands in remote central China.

The hairless beast was trapped by hunters in Sichuan province after locals reported spotting what they thought was a bear.

One hunter, Lu Chin, said: “It looks a bit like a bear but it doesn’t have any fur and it 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.

"There are local legends of a bear that used to be a man and some people think that’s what we caught," he added.

Now stumped local animal experts have shipped the mystery beast to scientists in Beijing for DNA tests.
