DNA testing proves the Yeti is actually a prehistoric polar bear, scientist says

Yetil. That means the Abominable Snowman might be an ancient polar bear.

The Yeti is real — but it may be more bear than humanoid, a new study says.  A British scientist used DNA to determine that hair allegedly from the Himalayas' Yeti actually belongs to an ancient bear species experts believed was long extinct.

Oxford University researcher Bryan Sykes and his team published their work this week, NBC News reported.

The Abominable Snowman-hunting team spent a year collecting dozens of "Yeti hair samples" and analyzed the DNA.

They didn't limit themselves to just Nepal and Tibet's Yeti. They also accepted sampled purported from North America's Bigfoot, Russia's Almas and Indonesia's Orang Pendek. Most of the samples were easily explained: They came from horses, cows, bears, dogs and even humans.

But two brown clumps of fur from the Himalayans were matched to a prehistoric bear — a species that first roamed the earth centuries ago but supposedly went extinct.
