"Yeti" Detained by Police
Some Chinese peasants asserted that a chained
"creature," which they
were taking through Xiangcheng in Henan Province, was a yeti. Since they
were asking people for money, the police detained them and the "animal."
The yeti was actually a small man named Fang Xiwang (Hopeful Fang), who
had been costumed in black fur.
