Zana, The Female Yeti?

Zana, The Female Yeti?

In a remote village in Georgia in Russia, a 6.5 feet tall wild woman was caught from the mountains in the 1850s. She had red hair all over her body and was very muscular. She was named ‘Zana’ and she spent several years in a cage. Eventually, she was let out. She roamed the village but always came back. She was trained in simple chores and never wore clothes. Her strength was legendary, and she did not seem to be affected by the frigid winter air. She enjoyed grapes and also had a weakness for wines, often drinking so heavily she would sleep for hours. This is likely how she became the mother of many children to different fathers. Her first two children died when she tried to wash them in the freezing river. The villagers then started to take her children away from her and raised them as their own. She died in 1890. When her grandchildren were researched by a professor, one of her grandsons, had jaws so powerful he could lift a chair with a man sitting in it. Their DNA test shockingly showed that Zana’s ethnic background was ‘100% sub-Saharan African’.
