Yeti (Bigfoot) Is Related to Ancient Polar Bears?

New DNA research may have finally solved the mystery of the yeti.

Tests on hair samples found a genetic match with an ancient polar bear, and scientists believe there could be a subspecies of brown bear in the high Himalayas that has been mistaken for the mythical beast.

The yeti, also known as the abominable snowman or bigfoot, has been recorded for centuries in the Himalayas. Local people and mountaineers claim to have come face-to-face with hairy, ape-like creatures.
