Mountaineer Matako Nabuka says there is no Yeti?only the Meti, which is a big brown bear. Despite this, Yeti and his cousin Bigfoot continue to be seen all over the world, including Vermont.
Daniel Lak writes in BBC News Online that Nabuka spent 12 years in Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan looking for the Yeti. He now thinks Yetis are actually the Himalayan brown bear known as the “Meti.”
Explorer Raj Kumar Pandey says, “Look at all the foreign expeditions that have seen [the Yeti]. “We have much more research to do on language and in zoology before we believe statements like this.” Some explorers who’ve seen the creature are U.K. explorers Eric Shipton and John Hunt.
