I stumbled over a blog entitled 'I Love The Yeti' the other day and - to quote Peter Griffen - it really ground my gears. Anyone who knows me will tell you that one of the things that annoy me most is the depiction of the yeti as a creature with white fur. I have said it before, and I’ll say it again until I’m blue in the face, THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A SINGLE SIGHTING OF A WHITE YETI! White sasquatches have been reported - and even a white almasty (but that was by moonlight and it might have been grey). The yeti is black or dark brown, but not white.
The ‘I Love The Yeti’ blog actively states that it will only cover articles about white yetis! This is like doing a blog on purple crocodiles, green rhinos or pink elephants! Stuff like this is spreading misconceptions and misinformation and more importantly, is stopping cryptozoology being taken seriously.
I urge everyone to post to this blog pointing out that yetis are black, brown but never white.
