This sort of story surfaces periodically in China. Most recently, the critters
in question have been identified as Macaca arctoides -- the stump-tailed or
"bear" macaque. These have vestigial tails, naked faces with patches of light
pigment, and "beards."

There are a couple of other macaque species with similar features that are also
indigenous to China.
