BBC's ONLINE: So Weird, Lionel's Guide
The Ape Type
all big, theyre all hairy, theyre all colossal cocktails of
man, ape, bear and occasionally goat. And theyre all over the world
- Yeti in the Himalayas, Sasquatch and Bigfoot in North America, Yeren in
China, Nguoi Rung in Vietnam, Yowie in Australia.
An adventurer named
Bauman was working as a trapper with a friend in the Wisdom River area
In 1924, Al Ostman claimed to have been abducted by a whole tribe of Sasquatch. He was asleep in his sleeping bag when one of them picked him up like a rag doll and carried him away. As the creatures made no attempt to harm him, Ostman who always kept a loaded rifle by his side when he was out alone in the wilds - did not wish to harm them. He finally got away by giving snuff to their leader and running away while the Sasquatch Chief was sneezing uncontrollably!
Many disturbing reports
of the Yeti, or Abominable Snowman - a close cousin to Sasquatch and Bigfoot
- have come in over the years from the Himalayas. In 1974, on a plateau
14,000 feet up near Mount Everest, nineteen year old Lakpa Sherpani was
knocked unconscious as she tried unsuccessfully to defend her yaks from
a yeti which killed several of them by twisting their horns until their
necks were broken.
