The results of multiple DNA tests allegedly indicate that the hairs are from an unknown primate species.
The hair samples were retrieved inside a cave by Dr Igor Birtsev during an expedition in Siberia, a region well known for its sightings of the elusive hominid. The tests were conducted at several universities and appeared to indicate that the hairs "came from a human-like creature which is not a Homosapien yet is more closely related to man than a monkey."
"We had ten samples of hair to study, and have concluded that they belong to mammal, but not a human, and not the animals known to the area where they were found, like a bear, or wolf, or goat, or any other animal," said Professor Valentin Sapunov. "The tests were performed by laboratory of electronic microscopy and laboratory of molecular genealogical classification."
"DNA tests on hair found supposedly found in a Siberian may actually prove the existence of the Abominable Snowman."
