Yeren are Chinese versions of Sasquatch. Although these creatures are much more ancient, dating back 2000 years, when "mountain ogres" were featured in a poem made by Qu Yuan. Hundreds of years later, a band of hairy men were seen by Li Yanshou. Similar stories of tall, reddish men had been heard of through out the mountainous regions. Some say that it retains speech, just like we do.
