The Abominable Snowman/Yeti: How About a New Search? And What About the Story and History?

Only about a week ago, I was speaking with a friend in the field of Cryptozoology (or, as I prefer to call it, “Monster Hunting”) on the subject of the Yeti/Abominable Snowman of the Himalayas. There’s no doubt the creatures need a collective new injection of visibility. So, today, I figured it would be a good time to give the creatures a new bit of life, so to speak – and to look at the history of the mysterious phenomenon. So, let’s begin. Bigfoot is certainly the most famous of the world’s many and varied hairy man-beasts. Running a close second, however, is the Yeti, also known as the Abominable Snowman. The specific region in which the legendary beast is said to roam is the Himalayas, a vast, mountainous expanse that dominates Nepal, Tibet. In the same way that the United States appears to be the home of several distinctly different creatures – such as the huge, lumbering apes of the Pacific Northwest and the smaller skunk-apes of Florida – so there appears to be more than one kind of Yeti. Reportedly, they range from man-sized creatures to enormous giants, close to twenty feet in height. Of course, claims of such extreme and extraordinary heights must be treated cautiously. They may well be distorted accounts of encounters with animals of smaller stature, but no less impressive, perhaps around 12 to 13 feet tall.
