A claim that the yeti does not exist has been greeted with a chorus of stern disapproval by leading Nepalese officials and commentators.
The row began when a claim by a Japanese mountaineer, Makato Nebuka, that the yeti is really a meti, or Himalayan brown bear, was labelled
"controversial" and ultimately "fallacious" in a front-page analysis in the daily Kathmandu Post.
Gotta make that nasty Japanese sceptic take it back!
