'Oriental yeti' discovered in China

A creature dubbed the 'oriental yeti' is being examined by scientists after emerging from ancient woodlands in remote central China.

If this is the “yeti” that everyone is so afraid of, that cage better be 10 feet high.

If it’s like the East Coast Beast a while back it will turn out to be something known - but hairless due to something like mange.

Was it caught in the Fire Swamp? It looks like a rodent of unusual size.

I'm guessing a lesser panda...of course this is Asia, and I remember one night in Korea seeing a rat about the size of a 'possum...
