Discovered in a remote region of the Republic of Abkhazia, a towering woman named Zana was captured by local hunters in the 1850s and sold to a nobleman who "tamed" her and kept her on his estate as a servant until her death in 1890, according to local accounts.
Zana's resemblance was described as that of a wild beast, "the most frightening feature of which was her expression, which was pure animal," wrote one Russian zoologist in 1996.
Now Professor Bryan Sykes at the University of Oxford says he believes Zana had a strain of West African DNA that belonged to a subspecies of modern humans.

The predictive texting has mangled your OP, but the article is there and the source ...good.
Bigfeet and Yeti being a human branch wouldn't surprise me one iota... anyone looking into the literature (or talking to a decent witness... or seeing one oneself) knows something is up with tall, hairy men in the wilder regions of the globe.
Another step in the eternal quest for data!

Possibly so, possibly not. If human DNA is largely more powerful than Neanderthal DNA, which seeing as we have so little in us is a very big possibility, than the recessiveness of that DNA would result in very little crossing over into that child. I mean if we bred with Neanderthal's and Denisovans, and their DNA was really strong, it wouldn't have died down to such a small amount in us as it has.
A leading British geneticist, who recently found the DNA key that could answer the mystery of the ‘Yeti’, has now solved the riddle of Russia’s own Bigfoot, ‘Zana’.
