A bizarre hairless creature dubbed a "yeti" and captured by hunters in China's Sichuan province is being studied by scientists. "It looks a bit like a bear but it doesn't have any fur and it has a tail like a kangaroo," said one of the hunters. "There are legends of a bear that used to be a man and some people think that's what we caught." The animal, which "calls like a cat," will be sent to Beijing for DNA tests, reports the Telegraph.
