The story goes that the boy's mother claimed that she was kidnapped by a Yeren (Yeti), the Chinese "Wildman" or Chinese version of Bigfoot. (See video below).
Nine months later she gave birth to a strange boy who grew to be abnormally large and apelike, displaying more features we attribute to prehistoric (paleolithic) humans rather than modern ones.
Although he was never able to speak a language, he gained a minimal understanding of what people were trying to say to him. He lived to be 33 years old. But because he was kept a secret and hidden in a small village, not much is known about him.

The problem with this explanation, however, is that it does not explain the size of this hybrid looking man: No previous case of microcephaly has ever been very tall.
In addition, he displays many ape-like characteristics such as an ape-like jaw, extremely long and gangly arms, and lacks a human neck. Is he half human, half animal (ape)? Is the human hybrid ape man found in China real or fake?
There is mounting evidence of a bipedal creature in California's Sierra Nevada mountain range. Bigfoot researchers trek in to investigate Native American stories and petroglyphs of a family of hair-covered man-beasts. They examine recently found footprint evidence and a compelling 1991 video of a supposed Bigfoot encounter at Mono Lake, east of Yosemite National Park.
Sasquatch (Sásq'ets, a catchall name for the ape-like creature) is believed to inhabit forests of the Pacific Northwest region of North America. It is described as a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid.
Maybe Yeren is a Neanderthal as sought in adjacent Russia and Siberia. The 45 minute special below follows the search for Bigfoot (Russian Almasty, Mongolian Almas):
