‘Snowmen’ Are Saint-Like Recluses, Not Giant, Shaggy Cannibals, Priest Contends
By John Callcott
United Press International
Frankfurt, Germany (UPI) – A missionary who just returned from Tibet said today the “abominable snowmen” of the high Himalayas are saint-like recluses who devote their lives to healing. He scoffed at reports that they are giant, shaggy cannibals. In an exclusive interview, Roman Catholic Father Franz Eichinger expanded on the report published in a church paper Friday that he met one of the “snowmen” during the 13 years he spent in Tibet. The small, balding missionary spoke to this correspondent in Frankfurt’s railway station at 1 a.m. during a short stopover on a trip from Wuppertal to his home mission near Munich.
Discounts Cannibalism Reports
“These highly-religious hermits are definitely what are popularly know as abominable snowmen,” Eichinger said. “Reports that these men are responsible for acts of cannibalism are absurd.” Eichinger, who has several photographs of the recluses said they are “just like normal humans” except that they are very thin because of a scanty diet and frequent fasting. “Their main calling is the curing of people, particularly children,” he said. The missionary said the “snowman” he met had come down from the towering heights of the Himalayas to treat an ailing child in a valley village. “The child was cured,” he said.
Accounts for Footprints
Eichinger dismissed reports of giant footprints allegedly seen and photographed by explorers. “I believe these footprints are those of the saint,” he said. “Naturally, when they walk with their bare feet the snow melts around the print, making it larger. Then this print freezes and leads people to believe they are made by giants.” “The Tibetans regard the hermits very highly,” Eichinger said. “Whenever someone is sick they come to the villages and cure them with herb remedies.” “These holy recluses are capable of fasting and not moving for hours or even days as yogis. “Somehow, these people are not in normal contact with earth. They live only from plants which they grow in lower regions. They do not feel the cold or other elements at all.”
