Yunnan Province, Southern China (Regional Map below...)
In 1961, workers building a road through the heavily forested Xishuang Banna
region of Yunnan province in southernmost China reported killing a humanlike
The creature was 1.2-1.3 meters (about 4 feet) tall and
covered with hair. It walked upright, and according to the eyewitness
reports, its hands, ears, and breasts were like those of a human female
The Chinese Academy of Sciences sent a team to investigate, but they
were not able to obtain any physical evidence.
Some suggested that the
workers had come upon a gibbon. But Zhou Guoxing stated: "The present author
recently visited a newsman who took part in that investigation. He stated
that the animal which had been killed was not a gibbon, but an unknown
animal of human shape.
It is worth noting that, over the past 2 years or so,
some people in the western border areas of Yunnan Province say that the
above-mentioned kind of Wildman still move about, and that another one has
since been killed."

Interestingly, China's Yunnan Province is a mountainous region more or less sandwiched between other regions where these life forms have been either spotted or reported, namely Tibet to the North and Laos and Vietnam to the south. They share seclusion, many river sources and other waterways.
