Cops Bust The Abominable Snowman With A Little Help From Santa In Hilarious Photos

After spending decades searching the Himalayas for signs of the abominable snowman, it turns out he was chilling in St. Helens, Oregon all along.

Police from the city arrested the yeti as part of their push to warn drivers about the dangers of drunk driving.

The police department’s press release explains that the days between December 15th and January 1st see “some of the most dangerous driving days of the year,” as people are more preoccupied with the holidays than safe driving.

Police also warned that more drivers are heading onto the roads after using drugs like marijuana, which is just as dangerous as driving under the influence of alcohol.

To get the point across, the St. Helens Police Department recruited Santa Claus as an honorary police officer, and the jolly old elf helped them nab the snowman.

It seems that the bumble didn’t get the memo about safe driving this holiday season, and police shared some hilarious photos of his arrest.

Results Of “Yeti” DNA Tests Came Back, And We Got The Answers We Needed

Some mysteries just refuse to be solved, but humans never give up on their search for truth.

For hundreds of years, stories of the mythical Yeti have led adventurers, scientists, and skeptics to the Himalayan mountains. The enormous and snowy mountain range is said to be home to the Yeti, or Abominable Snowman, a giant ape-like creature similar to Sasquatch of Bigfoot.

Over the years collectors have identified samples of what they believe to be Yeti bones, skin, hair, teeth, and even feces. A new Animal Planet documentary called Yeti Or Not is putting nine of these samples to the test, identifying whether any of them contain actual Yeti DNA.

The project involved a global team of researchers in America, France, Norway and Pakistan, who compared the Yeti samples to human and animal DNA. Eight of the nine samples were matched with common bear DNA, but the ninth, taken from a “stuffed Yeti” located by the film crew, was different.
