Scientists in the UK who have examined hairs claimed to belong to a yeti in India say that an initial series of tests have proved inconclusive.

He told the BBC the Indian hairs are "potentially very exciting".

After extensive microscope examinations, the hairs will now be sent to separate labs for DNA analysis.

Hair analysis always come back “inconclusive” because there are no “known” samples of yeti or bigfoot hairs to verify them against.

Translation: initial tests showed the opposite of what we were hoping to see.
