Yetis 'do exist'


Yetis do exist and live in the Siberian mountains, according to a region that has found "indisputable proof" of the existence of the hairy beasts in an expedition, it has been claimed.

The Russian coal-mining region of Kemerovo said in a statement on its website that footprints and possibly even hair samples belonging to the yeti were found on the research trip to its remote mountains.

"During the expedition to the Azasskaya cave, conference participants gathered indisputable proof that the Shoria mountains are inhabited by the 'Snow Man'," the Kemerovo region administration said.

The expedition was organised after Kemerovo's governor invited researchers from the United States, Canada, and several other countries to share their research and stories of encounters with the creature at a conference.

"They found his footprints, his supposed bed, and various markers with which the yeti marks his territory," the statement said. The collected "artifacts" will be analysed in a special laboratory, it said.

Yetis, or Abominable Snowmen, are hairy ape-like creatures of popular myth, that are generally held to inhabit the Himalayas.

But some believe Russia also holds a population of yetis, which it calls Snow Men, in remote areas of Siberia.

Kemerovo region's Shoria is a sparsely populated territory in Western Siberia that has historically been a territory of coal and metal mining.

The region, the administrative centre of Kuznetsk coal basin, has pursued the elusive Yeti for several years as it tries to develop tourism into its mostly industrial economy.

Considering the latest findings, the region may "create a special research center to study the Yeti" in the regional university and "create a journal" dedicated to the science of the Yeti, the administration's statement said.

Siberia home to yeti, bigfoot enthusiasts insist

Russian tundra said to reveal evidence that prompts conference visitors to be 95% sure of abominable snowman's existence

The vast Siberian tundra holds untold mysteries, from once-secret nuclear installations to alleged UFO crash sites.

Now, a team of scientists say they are "95%" sure that Russia's wintry expanse is home to the mythical yeti, otherwise known as the abominable snowman.

More than a dozen scientists and yeti enthusiasts flew in from Canada, Estonia, Sweden and the US to exchange findings with their Russian counterparts at a day-long conference in the town of Tashtagol, some 2,000 miles east of Moscow in the Kemerovo region. Locals there have reported an increase in sightings of a creature in recent years.

A two-day expedition to the region's Azassky cave and Karatag peak over the weekend "collected irrefutable evidence" of the yeti's existence there, the Kemerovo government claimed in a statement. "In one of the detected tracks, Russian scientist Anatoly Fokin noted several hairs that might belong to the yeti," it added. Scientists also found footprints, a presumed bed and various other markers.

"Conference participants came to the conclusion that the artefacts found give 95% evidence of the habitation of the 'snow man' on Kemerovo region territory," the statement said.

"I know they exist - I see them every day," a conference participant, Robin Lynn, said by telephone from Kemerovo. She says she has a family of 10 yeti-like creatures living on her land in the US state of Michigan.

Evidence of yeti life of the creature has allegedly been found in the Himalayas and North America, where it is know as sasquatch, or bigfoot. John Binderangel, a Canadian wildlife biologist who has been studying the yeti for 30 years, said the Siberian expedition offered further proof of the beast's existence.

"We were shown some twisted willow branches that are referred to as markers - they were convincing evidence of this hominoid," he said. "There were also some tracks, but we're not quite sure what to make of them." Conference participants called for the launch of a campaign to "work out a more serious relationship [to the yeti] in society and mass media", the Kemerovo government said. They also proposed opening a university research centre.

The Kemerovo government has hosted a number of stunts aimed at boosting the region's reputation as a yeti centre.

Last month, it welcomed former heavyweight boxing champion Nikolai Valuev on a search for the yeti. The 7ft "beast from the east" reportedly failed in his quest.

Yeti hunters never sleep

The so-called Yeti supposedly exists in different parts of the globe. He may exist in Asia and even in Russia's Siberia, not to mention Europe and the Americas.

The word "Yeti" appeared in Tibet. It is used by the people indigenous to the region. It is a compound of two Tibetan words - "rocky place" and "bear."

Officially, the first story about the ape-like creature appeared in 1889, when a British officer found gigantic footprints in the snow in the Himalayas. In 1925, photographer N.A. Tombazi, a member of the Royal Geographical Society, wrote that he had seen a bizarre hairy creature near Zemu Glacier. He did not take a picture of the Yeti because the latter disappeared out of sight very quickly.

A group of Polish citizens escaped from a Siberian camp during Stalin's era. The men managed to reach the borders of the British land in India. As they were traveling across Tibet, the fugitives came across two hairy creatures. The Poles stopped some 50 meters from the "beasts". They were watching them for nearly two hours. The creatures would not move from the path. The people began to make noise to scare the beasts away. However, one of the Yetis turned around and bared his white teeth. The fugitives immediately realized that they would have to retreat.

Some 50 years ago, a large group of scientists, reporters and even professional climbers set off for an expedition to Nepal. They did not find the mysterious creatures. They only discovered several hairs that supposedly belonged to the Abominable Snowman and took pictures of his footprints.

Russia's Yeti hunter Anatoly Fokin believes that the mysterious creatures live in the taiga to the south-east off the town of Kotelnych. The man takes a very good bath and scrubs himself thoroughly to get rid of the human smell before he leaves home. The man installs cameras on the trees and hopes that some day he will present the undeniable evidence of Yeti's existence.
