A finger from the Pangboche hand said to be that of a Yeti has been DNA tested in London.
The finger turned out to have been in the UK for over 50 years and was taken from a monastery in Nepal in 1957. Irish-American explorer Peter Byrne had been in the region as part of an expedition funded by Tom Slick, he became fascinated by the hand after hearing two Sherpas talking about it. Byrne was able to retrieve one of the fingers from the hand and had smuggled it back to England. Now stored at the Royal College of Surgeons, the finger is to be DNA tested by the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland with the results expected to be revealed later today.Update:
Scientists in Edinburgh have revealed that the 'yeti finger' is actually that of a human.
"Set high in a remote Himalayan mountain range stands the Pangboche Buddhist monastery."
