Hair strands thought to be from a yeti-like creature living in India are to be tested in Oxfordshire.
Scientists at Oxford Brookes University will study the sample, which was found in the state of Meghalaya.
They will see if the strands match a known animal. To date there has been no conclusive proof yetis exist.

`.. no conclusive proof yetis exist.`

Perhaps a look at some who attend football matches may sway them :-)

Silly season in full swing.

better watch out... the Americans are at the moment testing the surface of Mars to see if whatever - and its costing them $billions. Certainly silly season

Come on Nessie, wake up - getting near time for your annual appearance!

I agree Nessie is being very shy this year, maybe she is off on holiday to warmer climes especially after last years summer.

Will be passing Penshaw Hill about 2:15 will keep a look out for it....

If you catch a Haggis, you can send it down to my lab. I'll be pleased to analyse it for you.... so long as it comes with a decent malt!

Even if they do test it, and it's an unknown animal, it's no proof that a "Yeti" exists - just another unknown animal.

Think of the media fuss only a week ago when a new bug was found in the garden of the Natural History museum!

Take care and avoid all sudden movements ;o))
