Destination Truth – Yeti Hairs?


The Destination Truth team may have stumbled upon a very promising find.

If you follow the show, then you’ll remember when the team discovered the infamous “Yeti footprint” about two years ago and made some headlines. Now on their third season, DT reveals another possible important find. Hair from an unknown primate from the Bhutan nation.

This season’s finale offered the world the possibility that maybe there is more than just legend when it comes to Bigfoot, Yeti, Yowie and the rest. Josh Gates sent the hairs to a forensics lab in Texas to be examined by Dr. Melba Ketchum. She ran a few tests and ran the findings against a database. The hairs seems to score high on the Human panels. Dr. Ketchum concluded that the hairs recovered from Bhutan were from a primate. An unknown primate.

I must say that the show is well written as far as entertainment goes. Some of the stuff they get themselves into is pretty funny. To me, it seems like they fly off to locations and try to debunk legends. All while acting like fools.  Where can I sign up?

If these hairs really are from an unknown primate from the Himalayas, then we should expect several more expeditions made in the upcoming months by different organizations.

The Findings:

Back in the States, Josh takes the photographs of the bones to mammalogist, Dr. Jim Dines to examine. Dines finds that the bones are far too big to be human, but notices they are extremely similar in size to the vertebrae of an Asian black bear. This evidence discounts the existence of the Yet, but the hair samples found in the woods tell a different story. Josh travels to Texas to meet with a forensic analyst who confirms that the hairs are from an unknown sequence. This leaves Josh to conclude that there may in fact be a Yeti— or something like it, lurking somewhere in Bhutan, waiting to be discovered.
