A news story from China this week has claimed that strands of hair retrieved from the borders of Nepal that locals believe to be from the Yeti have been examined and belong to no known animal with a DNA test expected soon.

"Making big news in China this week is a story about Himalaya's legendary Yeti or Bigfoot."

I bet the findings will be inconclusive, as always. I hope it shows something though...

I think it unlikely, unless they find something super wazoo in the DNA. There are no names or places mentioned specifically in the article, and the site is kind of a Weekly World News site, based on all the UFO and other whack stories on the side lines. So it will be hard to check up on.

I remember there was a monastery in in the Himalayas that claimed to have a Bigfoot cap. DNA tests ran showed it as being the skin from a goat. I remember they being fairly apologetic about it, stating there may have been problems with the tests, contamination, ect. however, they were denied from doing any further tests.
