Bear Man - Oriental Yeti caught in China

An animal that looks like a bear, has a tail like a kangaroo and the voice of a cat has baffled scientists in China, a media report said Tuesday.

Called the Oriental Yeti, the creature is being examined by scientists after it came out from woodlands in central China, The Telegraph reported.

The beast, which is hairless, was caught by hunters in Sichuan province.

"It looks a bit like a bear but it doesn't have any fur and it has a tail like a kangaroo."

"It also does not sound like a bear - it has a voice more like a cat and it is calling all the time - perhaps it is looking for the rest of its kind or maybe it's the last one?," Lu Chin, a hunter, was quoted as saying.

"There are local legends of a bear that used to be a man and some people think that's what we caught."

Animal experts plan to send the beast to scientists in Beijing who will perform DNA tests. (IANS)
