The Abominable Snowman Evidence Table of Contents Media Timeline Summary Suspect 10 surveyed Answers to why people
believe in the abominable snowman: So, is it True? Works Cited Also Known As: Monsters inc. Definition: Works Cited (continuted) Biggest Rationale Brief History Book: Magazine: Internet: (2) Dictionary: pictures: Video: Investigations Solution to myth I personally don't think the myth is true. Willian explains
below what he feels is true.

certainly have never denied the possibility of the existence of an
"abominable snowman," whether it be a giant ape or some
other unknown creature. I am only adhering to a basic tenet of
scientific procedure when I ask for something in the way
of positive proof of its reality. Unfortunately, those who claim
to have seen the "snowman" seem never to have a rifle at hand,
nor even a camera. Inference and argument are entertaining and
admittedly suggestive; but the real proof of the pudding is in the
eating thereof. Collateral evidence, such as footprints, is subject
to diverse interpretations. In this connection, I cannot help but
recall the "orang pendek" and the "Loch Ness monster." If someone
supplies me with the cadaver of an undoubted "snowman," I will be
only too glad to dissect it and report, to the best of my ability, on the
creature's zoological affinities. Until such proof of its existence, or
other proof which is just as convincing, is at hand, I reserve the right
to be skeptical. -William L. Straus, Jr. "strange news yeti-reports". live science. <http://www.livescience.com/strangenews/071203-yeti-reports.html >.

Wood Jones-
[Hallmarks of Mankind (1948)]
Jones pointed out that the animal footprint most commonly is mistaken for that of man is that of the bear; in this connection he notes that the footprint of the mysterious "orang pendek," once believed by both natives and Europeans to be that of some small jungle race of men, finally was proved to be the footprint of the Malayan bear. Consequently, the identification of the "abominable snowman" as a bipedal primate has been vigorously rejected by many zoologists and anthropologists. To most of them, a large bear seems a more acceptable and more plausible explanation. "Sasquatch" "Bigfoot" "the big man" The Abominable Snowman was said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal and Tibet. translates as man-bear "Dzu-teh" translates as cattle bear "Mi-go" translates as wild man Kang Admi translates as snowman In 1832, a British guy writing from Nepal, described a creature that attacked a group of his servants. Members of his local population told him he had described a Raksha, from the Sanskrit for "demon." This appears to be the first Western report of an unsubstantiated, many say mythical, beast who stands some seven to nine feet tall, is very hairy, and leaves behind mysterious footprints along with what is often described as a very disagreeable odor. -E.

Table of Contents by: Bekka Romero "I never saw one" disbelief:
Many people find it hard to believe that there are "unknown" humanoids wandering around on this planet of ours. For many of them, they can't exist because of the "I never saw one" rationale, and this is surely the weakest excuse of all for disbelief. <http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/337025/sasquatch_yeti_and_other_furry_things.html?cat=38>.

There were many fake ads about the abominable snowman being caught when there are really only footprint evidence. in the 1940's to late 50's there was a myth started about the Abominable Snowman, or yeti, being a mystical gorilla like creature living in the Himalayas. Stories of the Yeti have been told by the people of Nepal and Tibet for generations, although no scientific proof of its existence has emerged. investigations that took place concluded that the tracks can be narrowed down to the following: '
-snowshoe tracks by the tallest human in existence
-an Olympic jumper wearing snowshoes,
-a Bigfoot track faker,
-a leaping cat of some kind, or
(the most interesting option)
-yeti tracks.

In light of the more detailed scientific investigations out there, the creature does seem to be a presence in the forest. Native American tribes had a name for the beast hundreds of years before the Weekly World News did.
