Three separate 'sightings' of yetis have been made in in the remote Kemerovo region of Siberia in recent weeks, say fishermen and an official in Russia.

In August, a fisherman sailing up a river saw 2 creatures drinking water near Myski village


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,' he said. 'They were drinking water.

'When they noticed me, they easily stood straight upright and went away... I did not wish to chase them.'

Siberian Times


It should be noted that the creatures are distinguished from bears, common in the area, due to running on two legs


In a separate account, the fisherman took a 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, pointing.

'What did we think? It could not be bears, as the bear walks on all-fours, and they ran on two.... so then they were gone.'

It was reported that several days after this sighting 'local people saw a strange creature one more time'.

Siberian Times


Tall animals looking like people were spotted on Mras-Su River


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.'

He stressed: 'We realised that they were not in dark clothes but covered by dark fur. They did walk like people.'

Siberian Times


In September a further sighting was made


One was spotted this month by an unnamed state inspector in the Shorsky National Park, says local government official Sergei Adlyakov.

'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.

Siberian Times


Russia's leading 'yeti expert' Igor Burtsev, head of the International Centre of Hominology believes the creature is a is a missing link between Neanderthal man and modern human beings.

Sounds like some big hairy Russians to me.


Would it really be so surprising though? Every year man discovers thousands of new species.

And if they really are a link between Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens Sapiens, they would most likely be intelligent enough to live in hiding and totally avoid contact with human beings. They could disguise themselves in the wild, a place they may be much more comfortable than we are.

These creatures have been very persistent through-out recent times.

Surely there must be some truth to this enigma?

Just wish we knew what exactly is going on here.

Cheers for the info mate - good read(s).

S&F for another X-File.

Very interesting to hear about new sightings in Siberia. I believe that they exist somewhere in the vast unexplored wilderness of our beautiful planet! Its funny that most people think we have explored every corner of Earth but it´s simply not true.

Thanks for sharing SF!

I believe that if they exist, they would be in Siberia. Such a vast expanse of wilderness.

this might sound stupid but shouldn't researchers use heat sensitive cameras and infrared to search for them? wouldn't this combined with aircraft make the search much easier, especially now that they have an approximate location to their "territory"?

Heat sensitive cameras and infrared can´t penetrate the thick bush and trees of the dence forests that these creature seem to inhabit. It has been tried and it´s hard to track even normal game in those conditions. There are some documentaries out in which they try stuff like that. Those creatures have been smart enough to hide for so long, seems like they are not as dumb as we think. They are very elusive!

I just caught this story in the paper, good job i searched before posting.
i like how theres different witness's with the same descriptions, it adds to the authenticity for me. althought it could be argued that the witness's knew each other and collaborated a hoax, which IMO would be pointless unless they had video footage.
The wilderness there from what i've heard and watched is huge, dense and cold with parts still to be explored, so i think new species of monkey or 'yeti' could exist.

i wonder when or if the DNA results will ever be reported?

same region and description different encounter (2 years ago)
To me this makes it more plausable that Yeti exists

Oh yes! It is so much more believable now that Yeti exists. The fact that a creature with supernatural ninja stealth and survival skills can't swim adds a lot of credibility to its existence.

Lol hilarious!
Freezing cold water and lots of fur would make swimming difficult.
Look how many new species get discovered even now, so yes I believe there is a possibility.
The point I was trying to make that 2 eye witness descriptions are very similar but 2 years apart.
Thanks for your thoughts......I think

Well, I don't think vodka-loving russians in the middle of the tundra make good eyewitnesses.

Actually, I think that local communities know much more about the wildlife in their regions than some idiots sitting on their computers happily inside their houses and surmising about what different people on multiple occasions may or may not have seen.

Way to stereotype, and also to have a thoroughly Western perspective.


Also, it doesn't take "supernatural stealth" to evade biological surveyors, *and* I don't see what swimming has to do with anything. Lots of primates can't swim.

Just sayin'.

The biggest problem on proofing it's existence is, what does a Yeti eats? There's not alot of food in the Himalayas, i can't imagine how worst is in the winter. Unless Yeti like any bear, passes it's time hibernating of course.

Anybody knows if any big animals or fruit variety can be found in those regions?

The yeti is probably not a bear... historically it's been referred to as a hominid-type primate. If people can survive in the Himalayas, then theory is that there is enough food for a yeti. Roots, berries, foliage, grasses, and lichen are all present in the area and would be likely food sources. It's also possible that they hunt, in which case they may eat small rodents, fish, who knows. I don't know.

Large animals found in the region include snow leopards, bears, foxes, wolves, martens, black bears, tahr, and yak. Another large species could absolutely subsist on flora and fauna of the region.

It must population must be quite low or live in extremely remote areas. Because science didn't discovered it, whomever, we have people reporting encounters with it. The yeti must don't like humans and avoid them if possible. We can theorize that by these reports.

Yeti are believed to be a hominid primate that lives in pretty cooler regions. It can be possible. Their evolution process can be like polar bears. Polar bears have separated from brown bears at very recent time during 0.6 million years ago or less. We know before 2 million years ago, there were variety of Hominid creatures roamed the world including humans. But slowly the hominid creatures started disappearing, may be due to fights between themselves as they were lot intelligent and one had to survive. Till 1 to 0.6 million years ago even, there still existed many species of humans. But there could have been possibilities of some hominids escaped to the cooler regions for survival just like polar bears and these hominids had evolved white fur so to be protected. Being a hominid creature, they must have evolved a knowledge to be protected from rising humans may be during the same age of evolution of polar bears or they became interdependent to these polar bears and evolved to live like them. Today we call them Yeti who knows and understands the importance of hiding. There are even many and many news comes often about yeti to be seen in Himalayan regions. It is true that Hominids are those families of apes who have evolved into extremes sometimes like see us or gigantopithecus, who were huge creatures of 1.5 millions years ago and even much after..

Agree. There's a huge possibilities of being an evolved species of gigantopithecus, since they lived in Asia. it probably followed humans trough the America, Europe and other continents creating legends such as of the Bigfoot and Sasquatch.

Vodka-loving russians? You take things too seriosly, brother. Those fine individuals drink vodka like it is water. One straight vodka shot after another without even flinching. Have you ever had a drink together with a russian? Well, I have. They drink hard liquor like real men would. Much respect to my many fellow russian brothers.
And please, leave the international alcohol affairs to the pros. You go back and read your bull***t bigfoot kiddy tales. Have a wondenful day. Удачи.

I think the problem was that the vodka-drinking implied that local claims were less credible. I just don't think that's necessarily true and I know nothing about the alcohol consumption of the individuals who reported sightings--I don't think that it is relevant to the question at hand.
