The Riddle of the Abominable Snowman

THE RIDDLE OF THE

ABOMINABLE
SNOWMAN


By Albert Maisel

        Amid the vast wastlands of the high Himalayas there walks a giant creature, whose likeness to Man has puzzled scientists for years. Is it, as some people think, merely a bear or a monkey - or even just a fairy tale? Or is it perhaps the long sought "missing link" between the apes and Man?
        The natives who live in the high, lonely valleys of the Himalayas call the strange thing by several names...  Yeti, Meti, Shookpa, Mi-go, or Kang-Mi. The one we hear most of all is of course "Yeti." They have  known. about the Yeti for hundreds of years, but it was not until 1887 that the creature was first heard of in the Western world.
        Colonel W. A. Waddell, a British mountaineer was trudging across a snow-field when he came upon a mystifying set of tracks. They were like the footprints of a gigantic man, stalking along where no one would expect to find a lone human being - least of all barefoot.
Nineteen years later, another explorer not only saw the Yeti's tracks, he caught a glimpse of a great, hairy, two-legged creature. It ran away from him across the snow until it vanished over a ridge in the distance.
        As time went on more climbers and explorers sighted the Yeti. Sometimes it would be seen disapearing into a forest; sometimes walking across a snowfield, stooping now and then to pull up roots and shrubs. It became known as the "Abominable Snowman."

Attacked by a "Snowman"

        In 1948, two Norwegian explorers called Frostis and Thorberg followed some Yeti footprints in the snow. Suddenly they found themselves face to face with a pair of enormous, shaggy-haired, two legged creatures. Quickly the men tried to lasso one of the creatures, but the beast attacked Frostis and savagely mauled his shoulder.  Thorberg saved his friend by firing his rifle and frightening the Yetis away.
