The Hairy Giants of Hubei: How Reports of a Red-Haired “Monster” Once Launched a Chinese Scientific Expedition
Since the early decades of the 20th century, reports of large, hirsute humanoids have been widely recognized in Canada and the United States. Best known by names such as Sasquatch, the anglicized name given them by Irish-Canadian J.W. Burns in 1929, and Bigfoot in the United States since 1958, these North American representations of the ubiquitous “wild man” also have counterparts in other parts of the world.

China’s Hubei province has long been regarded as a possible home for some variety of humanlike creatures equivalent to the North American Sasquatch, with legends and folktales dating back to at least as far as the Warring States Period which appear to recount such observations.

However, the stories about China’s Yeren are not relegated to past eras and traditional beliefs. Sightings of the creatures have also occurred in recent decades, which included a flurry of reports around Hubei province in 1976 that even saw attention from the venerable New York Times.

The series of incidents began in 1976 with sightings of a hairy creature in Shennongjia around the border between Hubei, Shaanxi, and Sichuan. Described as being covered in reddish, wavy hair, the stories proliferated to the point that the Chinese Academy of Sciences organized an expedition in March 1977, sending 110 biologists, zoologists, and photographers in pursuit of the creature. They were provided backup too; soldiers accompanied the team of scientists, armed with tranquilizers, rifles, and dogs to lend support in the search for Hubei’s mysterious red-haired monster.

Although the search for this possible “living fossil” had been unsuccessful, it nonetheless marks one of the largest official expeditions mounted to go in search of a Sasquatch-like creature anywhere in the world in recent decades. Indeed, if the reports from around that time are to be believed, perhaps some relict population of large manlike creatures could still thrive in remote Shennongjia even in the present day.

What caught my eye about this story was the color of the giant's hair. Why? The Kandahar Giant that was killed in Afghanistan by U.S. troops in 2002 was also a red head. Additionally, China and Afghanistan share a mountainous border in Badakshan Province.
