Follow along as this multinational team travel through Bhutan in search of the migyur, the local name for what we know as the Bhutanese yeti.
This is the National Geographic sponsored expedition that turned up a hair with the DNA-rich root still attached, subsequently examined and tested for DNA by Oxford University's esteemed Professor Bryan Sykes. "We found some DNA in it," he said, "but we don't know what it is. It's not a human, not a bear not anything else we have so far been able to identify. It's a mystery and I never thought this would end in a mystery. We have never encountered DNA that we couldn't recognize before."
It begins as Professor Sykes discusses a proposed migyur skin that he was given to analyze. It turns out to be a type of previously unknown bear. Highlights include a look at footprint castings, a spooky story by locals who may have crashed a migyur's cave, and a woman who claims to have actually lived with a migyur. Seems rescuers were looking for her in the forest, but her companion had stashed her in a cave. Sadly, she bemoans that her family is keeping her from returning to her hairy Romeo.
Along the way, they pick up the King of Bhutan's lead migyur tracker to take them to find the creature. This is how the mystery hair is found within a tree. The tracker claims to have seen the migyur hanging out inside the hollows of the large cedar. It concludes with Professor Sykes speaking about his surprising findings when he performed DNA testing on the hair's root.
