Legendary man-beast being hunted in China
By Victoria Graham
Peking (AP) – The search is on for China’s own version of “bigfoot,” the smiling manbeast of the mountains – fei,” the great baboon. In northwest Hubei province, the peasants talk of a smiling “dull giant,” a hairy 10-foot-3 tall creature who strides vigorously through the forest. In the mountains of coastal Zheijiang, the folk talk of smaller “man-bears” and “wild men.”
For hundreds of years manapes have figured in Chinese legends. One researcher says 250 people in remote Hubei have sighted, encountered and even fought with the wild men. Last summer an expedition found 7,000 human-like footprints belonging to a creature standing about 9 feet tall. The Chinese Academy of Sciences has organized a research team to hunt the creatures, with the help of the provincial Communist party. Researchers say the snows of winter will help them track the denizens. The latest clue to the mystery of the fei-fei comes from the Nine Dragons Mountains in Zheijiang on the central coast.
The Shanghai Wen Hui daily newspaper reported recently that the hands and feet of a wild man, cut off 23 years ago, have been recovered. The specimens, intact but shriveled, had been hidden and forgotten during the chaotic 1966-76 cultural evolution. A newspaper photograph shows human-like hands with five fingers and clearly defined fingernails. The feet appear to have five toes and an enlarged foretoe. The paper told a bizarre tale of the capture and carnival sideshow-like display of the man-beast 23 years ago. On May 23, 1957, 13-year old Wang Congmei was grazing a few cows near a creek in Zhautang village, Songyag county, the story said. The afternoon was dark and drizzling when a human-like creature appeared and headed toward the girl. She cried for help, the story said. The startled beast panicked, stumbled into a bog and was beaten to death with sticks by the women of the village. The peasants thought they had found the legendary manbear. The lopped off its hands and feet and sent them to the local government for a reward. The creature was a sensation. The corpse was displayed at the village and hundreds of people went to view the legend in the flesh. The beast was a humble specimen, male, about 5 feet tall, and covered with long, silky black hair. As it walked, its arms frequently swept the ground.
