Mountain-climbers discover mummified leg of unknown creature in Altai, Siberia

...according to this article from "Getaway to Russia."

What a coincidence: just a few days ago I read "Tintin in Tibet," an enjoyable comic book by Herge. In it, Tintin goes out of his way to save his Chinese friend Chang who's stranded in Tibet after an airplane disaster. Of course the Yeti is around - there. But, back to the article...
The discovery continues to be examined. Scientists say it's early to attribute it to a yeti because this would require a DNA study. Besides, a European size 36 shoe would fit the discovered leg while yetis are believed to have exceptionally large feet.
