Angels, demons and Bigfoot. Sounds like a Dan Brown novel set in the Pacific Northwest. Or else it refers to the subjects of some of the year's best books on myth and legend. It's been a good year for lore, but then again, any year is. People never exhaust their desire to believe in worlds beyond their immediate experience.

The couple purchased the 8-pound, 15-inch-tall Yeti from a SkyMall magazine. Police say the statue is valued at around $100, the Associated Press reported, and the owners would be satisfied if it was simply returned to their front lawn. In addition to police efforts, the couple is using community network Front Porch Forum to search for the sculpture.

"Sweet baby Jesus in the manger, I didn't think I was going to make it," said anchor Jessica Larche , after struggling to give straight narration over fuzzy night-vision clips purporting to show a Bigfoot walking around in the distance and closer-up shots of a partially obscured creature sleeping or appearing to look at the camera.

BEIJING - Unlike Japan, where Godzilla destroyed countless Tokyo landmarks, or South Korea, where celluloid sea beasts slink around the riverbanks into Seoul, China has no creature-feature tradition because film regulators historically have shunned superstition on the silver screen.

The Hollywood co-production of a local legend will begin shooting in a central China nature reserve in October with help from a special-effects master who worked on "Gremlins.
