Three Yeti ‘sightings’ in Siberia in recent weeks

Three Yeti ‘sightings’ in Siberia in recent weeks
Yetis or abominable snowmen have been ‘sighted’ in three different remote areas in Kemerovo region in Siberia in recent weeks.

One Yeti was spotted this month by an unnamed state inspector in the Shorsky National Park, according to a local government official Sergei Adlyakov, The Siberian Times reported.

‘The creature did not look like a bear and quickly disappeared after breaking some branches of the bushes,’ he was quoted as saying. This case was in Tashtagolski district, close to the border with Khakassia, it was claimed.

Earlier in August, fisherman Vitaly Vershinin saw two creatures near Myski village, according to a local Siberian newspaper.

‘Sailing up the river I saw on the bank what I thought were two bears. They were drinking water. When they noticed me, they easily stood straight upright and went away... I did not wish to chase them,’ he said.

In a separate account, the fisherman took a Russian Vesti TV crew back to the spot where he allegedly saw the yetis.

‘We shouted to them - do you need help?’, he said, initially thinking the creatures were humans.

‘And they just rushed away, all in fur, walking on two legs, making way through the bushes with two other limbs, straight up the hill, right there,’ he added.

Officials in Kuzbass, Kemerovo region, told of another alleged sighting. ‘We were sailing in a boat without an engine. On the rock above the Mras-Su River we saw some tall animals looking like people,’ said locals who have not been named.

‘Our binoculars were broken and did not let us see them sharply. We waved at the animals but they did not respond, then quickly ran back into the forest, walking on two legs,’ they said.

Russia’s leading ‘Yeti expert’ Igor Burtsev, head of the International Centre of Hominology, said Russia is to host a conference and expedition in search of the Yeti next month. In a similar hunt last year, Burtsev claimed that a team of international experts discovered samples of Yeti hair. No DNA analysis has been released of the hair though it is understood tests are being undertaken.

Burtsev claims the creature - also known as Bigfoot and Sasquatch - is a missing link between Neanderthal man and modern human beings.

Mainstream scientists say the creatures are entirely mythical and point out no remains have been found of them despite alleged ‘sightings’.  Burtsev has previously claimed a population of around 30 Yetis are living in Kemerovo region.
