Fear the WWD

At first, the Desert Yeti had free reign in it's territories, but as evolution has taught us time and again, never take anything for granted. A predator of Yetis was born in the early years. The Wild Wiener Dog of the west. It's pattern of hunting was to wait patiently in the branches of trees or cacti and then drop down on the unsuspecting Yeti. It is these wiener dogs that have kept the Yeti population down and further made it more difficult to find them.

The Legend

At least 50 years prior to the first "sasquatch" sightings, the Desert Yeti legend was already firmly established in the Sonoran desert.  As the story goes it was in one of the wild monsoon storms that frequently occur in the late summer around Tucson, or thereabouts, wherein a man of dubious regard was taking shelter under some cacti of the local variety. Then, the lightening struck and coursed through his body, forever changing his appearance and natural abilities. The man, previously a cowpoke who'd gotten lost during a cattle run, now awoke to find himself stretched half again as tall as he'd been before the electrical surge, and near on half as wide. And, odder still, with even the slightest movement the man's appearance went blurry right before his eyes. Surely due to some sort of continuing/residual cellular disruption caused by the lightening.

Knowing he could never return to live with normal people, he hid his shame in the deserts of the southwest, traveling from Arizona to California and even up to Nevada, never staying very long in any one locale. From that day until the present, the Desert Yeti has existed and propagated his species by stealing women and mating with them, holding them hostage until they've delivered their yeti babes, which always kills the women due to the great length and head size of the children when they are born. All the children born have the unnatural properties of their progenitor and are mostly male.
