1913: Sinkiang Province, China
A Chinese hunting party captured an apelike creature that their Tibetan leaders identified as the Himalayan snowman. The creature, severely wounded in the tussle, was held captive in a cage in Patang in the Chinese Sinkiang province until it died a few months later. The animal had a black monkey face and was incredibly strong and stinking. It made strange gutteral noises, and every now and then, a piercing, high-pitched whistle escaped from its lips.
