You are hereYeren


In the remote forests of the western part of China's Hubei province people believe passionately in the existence of the Yeren- the "wild men". The creatures have been believed in since time immemorial and sightings are frequently reported even today.

Yeren are usually said to be covered in thick, reddish hair although white individuals have also been occasionally reported. They are said to be around six to ten feet in height and sometimes taller. Yeren are perceived to be more human than animal in manner and form, perhaps some distant relative of ours.

There are almost no stories of Yeren being aggressive or harmful to humans and are almost always said to either run or slowly sneak away when encountered. The few reported cases of extended contact with them describes them as timid and easily frightened despite their size.

Could there really wild men living in China's ancient forests?
