Siberia acknowledges Yeti existence

The Siberian region of Kemerovo announced they acknowledge the existence of the Yeti. They claim to have "indisputable proof" that Yetis live in their mountains.

I just found this article on my local newssite here (Google translation)
Here you have a source in English as well:

The local administration of the Kemerovo region in the south of Siberia 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 in a press release.

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.


Quite an announcement if you ask me, I'm looking forward to find more info on the expedition and its findings. The footprints, hairsamples, bed, territory markings ... And that idea for a future 'Yeti research center' sounds interesting as well. I haven't seen any pictures, and I couldn't find the official site yet.

Hopefully it's not just about promoting tourism in Kemerovo, as slightly suggested in one of the articles.
We'll see how this evolves, I guess.

It would be interesting if they actually had real factual proof, instead of the usual footprint and hairs that they probably won't let labs tests or that will come back inconclusive because it's hair from a bear.

But I don't think bigfoots, Yeti's, chupacabra, etc. exist anyway, if they were here, they would have been found or they are a lot smarter than the 7 billion people on earth are.

I really hope we get conclusive proof of the existence of these mysterious bipeds and not confirmation of further trolling. It isn't too great a stretch of the imagination that they might be real. Back in the mid to late nineties there was a biological survey in the Vietnam/Cambodia/Laos region and a good number of previously undocumented organisms were recorded. A couple were actually quite large mammals, forest antelopes or some other type of ruminants...can't quite remember! Anyway it is arrogant of us to think we know EVERYthing that exists on this wonderful planet of ours. Especially when we take into consideration the sparsely populated areas science rarely ventures into.

I for one have no clue whether they exist or not, but the official statement I find rather surprising. Although the 'tourism promo stunt' suspicions still stand.

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

Traditionally Yetis are thought to roam the Himalayas, but the Kemerovo government are keen to push the area's credentials as place where people can hope to glimpse the mysterious creature.

Russia Today ran a story about Big Foot. a team of specialists set to work to find the elusive creature.

If bigfoot does exist, Siberia would be a logical place that it could exist without being discovered.

In this link there's a picture taken on a expedition in 1951.

And even more: just last year they discovered a new primate species in that region (Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam), the northern buffed-cheeked gibbon.
I've mentioned it here also:

Previously undocumented organisms are found rather often, although it seldom concerns bigger mammals.

The DNA they tested for Yeti from mount Shoria in Russia actually turns out to be a bear, a species found in the USA.

link to source:

His tests reveal one, a long, thick, distinctive hair, comes from a rare type of black bear from North America — Ursus americanus. They can reach 7ft — just like the yeti sighted at Shoria.

It appears the bear was probably an escaped circus animal or pet. i wonder if there's more than 1, if so have they been able to breed? although Russia has its own brown bears.

What a perfect footprint.. And funny that it is described as being a mammal, yet doesn't walk like us - Ie. press down in the front before lifting the foot.
