Yeti in Popular Culture

The Yeti has enjoyed a wide audience in popular culture since the first half of the 20th century. However, unlike its american cousin the Sasquatch, Yeti are consistently portrayed in a way inconsistent with sighting reports.  The trademark white fur of the Yeti, as discussed earlier this month, is likely an artistic choice based on its snowy habitat, but holds little resemblance to the reddish-brown coloration as reported by witnesses.
