Posted by on December 5th, 2010
Hunters in the remote woodlands of the Sichuan province in China caught a small hairless creatures that is said to resemble a bear with a kangaroo tail. The creature has been shipped to Beijing for scientists to examine and DNA test. The creature has been named the “Oriental Yeti” because the hunters believe the creature is a legendary animal that was once human.

“There are local legends of a bear that used to be a man and some people think that’s what we caught,” said hunter Lu Chin.

While local legends are well and good, everybody knows that if you find a hairless, mangy creature of any kind, the answer is chupacabra. This is a bold new direction for hairless animal discoveries that will resonate around the world.

    We covered this story a while back on my podcast, Science… sort of ( Problem with these photos is there’s not a true sense of scale, plus this photo doesn’t show the tail, which as I remember was substantial. I think we decided it was most likely a Civet Cat or something similar. I, for one, am excited to try some Oriental Yeti poop coffee.
