CNN and the BBC are reporting that an intact knee, lower leg and foot of an unknown animal have been discovered in the Altay Mountains of Siberia. The remains were frozen, at an altitude of 10,000 feet. The x-ray of the foot looks very human, 24 cm in length and covered with hair, including the sole of the foot. Go to http://www.cryptozoology.com and scroll down to "Siberia Find Revives Yeti Legend", click on the link to the BBC story, photograph and x-rays.

Is this a relic hominid? Yeti? What do you make of the x-rays?

Retractable claws make it look more like a feline. :kittycat

It looks like a paw to me.

I agree, it doesn't look human at all to me. I actually think the picture is very different from the text description of it. Maybe they (BBC) attached the wrong picture?

The x-ray definitely looks hominid.

The x-ray: The metatarsals are all in-line, including the big toe. The heal bone, although bent back away from us, looks perfectly human at this distance as do both lower leg bones.

Picture: This individual obviously doesn't wear shoes. The hair between the toes is something which would be expected. My malamute has hair between his toes which looks just like this.

OK, this leg is hairy, but other than that, how can it be disregarded?

This article is almost a year old. Genetic testing was supposed to have been done by now. Does anyone have any new information?

I haven't seen any updates relating to this particular news. Maybe they're keeping it quiet?
