DNA results from stolen Yeti finger coming soon (Update: It's human) [Video]

Yeti Human Finger
DNA Result Update: The "Yeti's finger" is from a human. What kind of human? That's another question for another time. Perhaps Dr. Melba Ketchum can help answer that question. The results were disappointing, but the hunt for the Yeti goes on.

During the late 1950s, a Yeti expedition in the Himalyas lead an Irish-American explorer named Peter Byrne to a place called the Pangboche Monastery. The monks in this monastery claimed to have the hand of a yeti but refused let Bryne examine the object.

After consulting in London with a world-renowned primatologist Professor William Osman Hill, Bryne went back to the Pangboche Monastery and swapped the Yeti finger with a human finger. The monks had no idea he did this until years later. The Yeti finger story went cold until recently when it was rediscovered at a museum in London.

A writer for London's MailOnline named Matthew Hill was walking around a collection of human and primate skeletons at the Royal College of Surgeons in London three years ago and came across a withered finger which had only recently been found in the vaults of the College’s Hunterian Museum. It was labelled ‘a Yeti finger from Pangboche hand’.

This rediscovery has rekindled interest in the Yeti finger again and DNA test results are expected to be revealed in a special BBC Natural History documentary on Radio 4 today.

  1. Wow Shawn, this shows that Bigfooters have been stealing and lying since the Tom Slick days anyway and the PG film and right on up to today. I feel the PG film and old 1950's news is too old to revisit most of the time. But this? I am actually ashamed of Byrne. I had heard or read previous claims, so much like those today between "researchers," that he was alcoholic or something...or who was that?..LOL. But, I thought he was up and up.
    Now I will look more closely at the work attributed to him. Shameful really. And from Monks! I do hope there is a God. On the other hand, I haven't followed all these links.

  2. It is too bad Tom Slick died in 1962. When the North American Bigfoot became a phenomena in the late 60's, Tom Slick would probably have shifted his money resources to this endeavor with Peter Byrne, and probably had better results. One thing is for sure is that the Sherpas believe and it is no legend or myth to them, the same as Native American tribes.

  19. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
