Oxford Scientists Starts Scientific Search For Yeti

Some people especially Georgians believe that Yetis exist. Perhaps, they really exist. Now, scientists have requested cryptozoologists from all over the world to send them samples of unidentified animal. Cryptozoology is the study of animals whose existence is not proved yet. Scientists are planning to conduct genetic analysis of the material and identify what they might really be.

Eric Shipton’s Everest expedition happened in 1951. He returned with enormous photographs of giant footprints in the snow. Nobody could tell or identify what the animal really was. After that, many eye-witness reported of such creatures from several remote regions of the world. As they are unidentified, therefore scientists decided to call it ‘yeti’ or ‘migoi’ in the Himalaya, ‘bigfoot’ or ‘sasquatch’ in America, ‘almasty’ in the Caucasus mountains and ‘orang pendek’ in Sumatra, as well as others.

Oxford University’s Wolfson College has decided to invite every human being in the world to send in samples of animals that appear to be something of a mystery or whose identification they don’t know. In order to solve the mystery or identify the unidentified animals, they are going to use the very latest DNA identification technology. To unveil the mystery, Professor Bryan Sykes, a Fellow of Wolfson College, Oxford, is going to lead the project – “The Oxford-Lausanne Collateral Hominid Project” with Michel Sartori, Director of the Lausanne Museum of Zoology.

So if you find anything like this, don’t hesitate to send a specimen to Sykes and his team. Visit Oxford University’s Wolfson College’s website to find the details of the project.

We hope they are going to find something definitely and represent them in front us. Best of luck to them.
