1952: Edmund Hillary's Lost Yeti Evidence

The Legend:

In 1952 Sir Edmund Hillary was climbing in the Himilayas when his Sherpa guide Ang Pemba found a tuft of hair he stated belonged to a Yeti; then he threw it over a bluff, because it was bad luck to have it and would make the Yeti mad... so the hair wasn't brought back for analysis, as Hillary had wanted.


        My only source for this incident at the moment is just three sentences from an article about the "wild men of Everest" published in a 1957 issue of Popular Science. Naturally, this needs to be investigated further before it's trusted.
