"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.
