Madhu Chetri's research refutes the existence of the yeti — it is supposed to be a brown bear.
We've all heard of the Yeti. He is described as a giant ape-like creature. They say it lives on the Himalayan range in Asia. There was no conclusive evidence of the yeti's existence, but supposedly many people saw it.
However, now one expert believes that he has solved this mystery, writes LADBible.
Research Madhu Chetri from the Nepalese National Foundation Conservationists have repeatedly heard about it. Usually a variety of stories were told to him by residents of local villages.
Some shepherds spoke of a personal encounter with the creature. Others said they saw two yetis at once. While one was looking for a groundhog, the other just rested on his back. In addition, he folded his legs like a man. They even tried to show the evidence to the doctor. As a rule, these were hair and footprints.
However, Madhu Chetri believes that people are dealing with a Tibetan brown bear. Their footprints are quite similar to those supposedly left by Yetis. The researcher noted that the locals several times confused hair samples and paw prints of bears in high mountain pastures with yeti.
There are versions that large footprints may be associated with Himalayan marmots. This is a favorite dish of brown bears, so their tracks often appear in the upper parts of the settlements. And when they wake up in the summer, they dig deep holes – they are similar to the stories of the locals.
Chetri's first version is also proved by a new study. In particular, after the first observation in 2007, he took clear images of animals. Camera traps helped with this. With their help, it was possible to find out that Nepal also has a small population of brown Tibetan bears.
He plans to publish his study soon.
