The ‘tests’ were conducted on samples of hair found in a Siberian cave during an international expedition last year.
‘We had ten samples of hair to study, and have concluded that they belong to mammal, but not a human,’ said Professor Valentin Sapunov, of the Russian State Hydrometeorological Institute.
Nor did the hair belong to any known animal from the region such as a bear, wolf, or goat, he claimed.
Analysis was conducted in the Russia and US and ‘agreed the hair came from a human-like creature which is not a Homo sapien yet is more closely related to man than a monkey’, said the Siberian Times, citing claims made on a regional government website in Russia in the area where the hair samples were allegedly found.
It stated that long-awaited scientific tests were conducted on their hair at two institutions in Russia and one in Idaho in the US.
‘All three world level universities have finished DNA analysis of the hair and said that the hair belongs to a creature which is closer by its biological parameters to Homo sapiens than a monkey. The Yeti’s DNA is evidently less than one per cent different to that of a human.’
