The Yeti is an Ancient Polar Bear?

If you stay current on your Paranormal News you probably saw new research that has matched suspected Yeti hairs to ancient Polar Bears. Read DNA links mysterious Yeti to ancient bear, scientist claims. It may be disappointing news to some Yeti aficionados that the giant creature may just be a bear, but I for one think this is great for the field!  Keep in mind the Yeti hair was matched to an ancient Polar Bear nearly 40,000 years old, not the modern day variant we are familiar with today. If true this would mean an ancient descendant of the polar bear was alive and well and more importantly undetected for centuries. If a creature of this size could go for so long without being cataloged, how many other yet unknown creatures could be out there?  It will also be interesting to see what the population size is for this animal. One of the biggest arguments against Bigfoot was the population would have to number in the thousands for the creatures to thrive, and with those numbers it should be much easier to find. This discovery might change some of those notions and re-ignite the Bigfoot debate.
