    On April 21 Breitbart News reported on a NRA-ILA statement which said Yeti Coolers had cut ties with the NRA Foundation. The statement, written by former NRA president and USF executive director Marion Hammer, said, “Suddenly, without prior notice, YETI has declined to do business with The NRA Foundation saying they no longer wish to be an NRA vendor, and refused to say why. They will only say they will no longer sell products to The NRA Foundation.”

    HARTSVILLE, SC (WMBF) – A Hartsville man wasn’t happy when the popular cooler maker YETI appeared to cut ties with the National Rifle Association. So, he decided to take his frustration out on his YETI cooler by blowing it up. Bryan Atkinson posted a Facebook Live video to his page on Monday that shows him destroying a YETI cooler that was full of Tannerite, a brand of patented explosive targets. “There’s the famous YETI. There’s the famous 22 pounds of Tannerite. This YETI ain’t ready,” Atkinson said in the video. Two men load the cooler into a truck and take...

    Update: Austin-based Yeti says claims made by the National Rifle Association over the weekend are “inaccurate” and that the company is “unwavering in our belief in and commitment to the Constitution of the United States and its Second Amendment.” In an email to its members, the NRA claimed Yeti “suddenly, without prior notice” indicated it no longer wished to do business with the NRA Foundation. Not so, says Yeti. The maker of coolers and thermal mugs says the NRA has twisted its words. “A few weeks ago, Yeti notified the NRA Foundation, as well as a number of other organizations,...

    Hikers in Tibet and the Himalayas need not fear the monstrous yeti—but they’d darn well better carry bear spray. DNA analyses of nine samples purported to be from the “abominable snowman” reveal that eight actually came from various species of bears native to the area. In the folklore of Nepal, the yeti looms large. The creature is often depicted as an immense, shaggy ape-human that roams the Himalayan hinterlands. Purported sightings over the years, as well as scattered “remains” secreted away in monasteries or held by shamans, have hinted to some that the yeti is not merely a mythical boogeyman....
