DNA Fingers Human, Not Yeti, Source of Finger

Norman Sperling, December 29, 2011

Physical evidence, scientifically analyzed, reveals reality far better than anecdotes, story-telling, and wishful thinking.

Proponents of the "Yeti" (Himalayan "abominable snowman") touted a finger taken from a "Yeti" hand displayed at the Pangboche Temple’s monastery in Nepal in 1958. If the Yeti is a real species, that wouldn't contradict Science, but it would add a fascinating complication to the complex story of humanity's heritage.

The finger's DNA has now been analyzed. It's human.

The news report pointedly doesn't state *which* finger it is, but I have my suspicions.
