Scientists say that “Yeti” hair found is similar to human hair; the hair found in Siberia is not from a Homosapian but more closely genetically linked to humans than it is to a monkey.

Yeti fanatics reckon that this newly discovered ‘Yeti hair’ is under a percent different than a human’s. Though it’s a hard point to prove, considering a ‘Yeti’ has never been discovered to take DNA sample from.

Professor Valentin Sapunov, of the Russian State Hydrometeorological Institute explained:  “We had ten samples of hair to study, and have concluded that they belong to mammal, but not a human.”

It was determined that the hair was not from a bear, goat or any other hairy wild animals.

As well as being tested in two Russian universities, the hair was also tested in an Idaho-based University in the US, who have not yet come forward to confirm the findings.

Like something out of a mythical novel, the hair was thought to be found in a cave named Azasskaya Cave in the Mourt Shoriya area, Syberia. Dr Igor Burtsev is believed to have initially found the intriguing clump.

Yeti theory pusher Burtsev reckons there are around 30 of these mysterious beasts living in the Kemerovo region.
