Yeti believers got quite a blow recently when a scientist examined an array of bones collected in the Himalayans over the years that were purported to be from Yeti. Biologist Charlotte Lindqvist, asked by a company that produced episodes for the show “Yeti or Not,” did DNA testing and found the nine bones were from … wait for it … bears.
