If the Tibetans themselves said it was a bear, I tend to believe it's likely a bear.

So, if Yeti was just a hybrid bear, there should be lots of skeletal remains and other evidence found from them over the years in the area?

You do realize how remote and inaccessible most of the yeti's habitat is? And how fast a corpse in the wild is scattered due to the actions of scavengers?

It is not only the scattering of bones; bones contain calcium and minerals that many animals need in their diet. It is hard to find a set of deer horns that do not reflect the damage done by mice nibbling. Animals seem to know if they need a missing nutrient. That is why so many millions of tons of "mineral licks" are sold to wishful hunters every year.

Including deer, which will gnaw on bones for the calcium - including human bones:
