Bournemouth University Research Reveals Ancient Man Hunted Giant Yeti Sloth

Your fun weekend article. The mystical Yeti creature. “It’s an interesting story and it’s all written in the footprints,” said Bennett, a professor of environmental and geographical sciences at Bournemouth University in southern England.

Scientists found that ancient humans in North America probably hunted and fought giant sloths. They apparently were more than eight feet tall and had long claws. They roamed around the Earth until around 11,000 years ago. Fossilized footprints found in New Mexico showed human footprints inside the paw prints of a giant sloth. Scientists say it means the human probably stalked and fought the sloth. Most scientists believe humans' actions eventually led to their extinction.
