Didn't check pages 2 and on to see if anyone threw this in, but the 911 call recorded here seems legit in terms of the 'anxiety' of the caller, though what he saw could be anything; but. the region gives some credence to it being BF:
If someone else already posted this, feel free to send me a nasty U2U...
how do you see them being treated once it is established they are real? would confirming that one important piece of evidence be worth killing them off or at least really screwing them up as a species?

I still believe the big guy is around.
Just my opinion.
Kind of old news,but worth a revisit.
His latest announcement was hailed by the Kemerovo regional government in a press release. Tuleyev has promised a 1 million ruble ($32,000) prize to anybody who can present an actual yeti. Read more: www.themoscowtimes.com... The Moscow Times

Myself, and tens of thousands of others, have been saying that these animals exist for a long time. It will feel great to shove it in everyone's face once definitive proof is released. It will not be that long now I'm sure, and evidence like this is just added to the plethora of other evidence that is available, that so many seem ignorant of.
People will think this is the first DNA confirmation of an unknown primate, but that is far from the truth. Right now anyone can go to Youtube and pull up authentic sasquatch videos, but the majority of people have a hard time telling what is real and what is fake. Most videos are from far away and are not very clear, and there is a reason for this. These animals are too smart to let someone sneak up on them in most cases, therefore most people will not get close enough to take a photograph. Encounters are usually fleeting as well, and if the animal was close enough to photograph, by the time a camera is out and ready, it will be pretty far away.
Those that have GREAT evidence are the ones who rarely release it. This is because it takes a long time of trust building to get close to a group of these animals, and thus a type of relationship is developed. Granted, these people still cannot get within arms reach of these animals, but they can get close enough to photograph them. But the main reason they can get that close is because they have spent a long time not pressing their luck, and not getting too close and pissing the animals off. They will let you know when you get too close, and you will likely not ever see them. This can come in the form of a guttural growl, a rock thrown at you, etc...
People like me, who have had an encounter, are not interested in answering the question of existence. Rather, we want to know HOW and WHY they exist. Think about how advanced their woodcraft skills would have to be to remain undiscovered for so long. But the truth is that they have not remained undiscovered. Lucky for them though people apparently cannot trust their fellow man's experience, and therefore do not believe they actually exist.
One of the biggest problems that occurs today is that someone will have an encounter, and then forever be freaked out. It really messes some people's minds up. If people would listen and try to understand these animals, this would not happen. It does happen because people are not expecting animals of this nature to be out in the woods, so when they come face to face with one, their minds cannot handle it. Many of them never go into the woods again. So all I ask is that people start listening. It is not as if there are a handful of people claiming to have had experiences. There are tens upon tens of thousands, and the majority never report their encounters to an actual research group, so the true number is probably much larger.
There is a reason that Native Americans do not like to speak on the subject, and it has to do with the white man's skepticism and flat out denial. People need to grow up.

Over the years several hairs have been tested and found to belong to an "unknown" primate. People still refuse to believe for whatever reason.
