The Yeran (Chinese: 野人; pinyin: yěrén; literally: 'wild-man'), variously referred to as the Yiren, Yeh Ren, Chinese Wildman[1] (Chinese: 神农架野人; pinyin: Shénnóngjiàyěrén; literally: 'The Wildman of Shennongjia') or Man-Monkey (Chinese: 人熊; pinyin: Ren Xiong; literally: 'Man Bear'), is a legendary creature said to reside in the remote mountainous forested regions of western Hubei.[2][3]

The Xinhua News Agency estimates that there have been around 400 sightings reported in the last few decades.[4]
