Yeti, Big foot and the Wild Man of Shennongjia

For centuries, people have reported seeing a wild creature in the Himalayas called Yeti. The Yeti is said to be a large , hairy animal that walks on two feet like a human being. People believe that Yetis sometimes come down from the mountains to attack villagers. In 1998, an American mountain climber said that he saw a Yeti on the Chinese side of the Himalayas. ‘It walked like a human, but it had thick black black fur and was about six feet tall with huge shoulders, very long arms and large hands,’ he said. In 2007, an American TV team saw Yeti tracks 33 centimeters in length in the snow near Mount Qomolangma. They made copies of these tracks and had them examined by a scientist in the USA. He reported that they looked like the tracks of a similar creature, called Bigfoot, which some people believe lives in the forests of the north-west of the USA. Yeti and Bigfoot are similar to a creature known as the Wild Man of Shennongjia. There have been dozens of reports that people have seen a Wild Man in the Shennongjia Nature Reserve in western Hubei Province, China. In one case, a group of engineers ran after the creature, which moved with amazing speed and strength. Large tracks have also been discovered which some people say belong to the Wild Man. Because of these reports and the tracks, there have been several organized searches for this creature, but no strong evidence for its existence has ever been found. Dr Grover Krantz, a scientist from Washington State University, studied reports of such strange creatures for many years. He became convinced they exist. He believed that these creatures are linked to a common ancestor, an animal that lived in Asia some 300,000 years ago. In his opinion, this animal made its way to other parts of the world, and continues to survive even today. Scientists hope that the mystery will be solved one day. If such creatures really exist, we might have the chance to see one with our own eyes.
