SIBERIAN YETI


SIBERIA – A Yeti has been sighted numerous times in remote areas of Siberia!

The Russian government is going to hold   an international conference in June on the ape-like, mythological creatures – the Yeti AND Bigfoot – that have been spotted numerous times this year.

“Organizing an institute or a scientific center would be a logical continuation of research into the yeti,” the administration in Kemerovo, a Russian coal-mining region, in western Siberia said. “The town of Tashtagol will host an international conference with leading experts into hominids. Based on its results, we will take actions in how to deal with the Yeti and how to protect citizens of Siberia from this dangerous beast.”

Kemerovo officials cited researcher Igor Burtsev as saying that around 30 Russian scientists are studying yetis — also known as “Abominable Snowmen” — and could work together at the planned institute, the Telegraph. “We think that the yeti is a separate branch of human evolution. It lives in harmony with nature,” he said.

Burtsev told Russian newspaper Itar Press he believed he spotted several yeti on an expedition last year. “I saw markers [half-broken branches] the creature uses to mark the controlled territory,” he is quoted as saying. “In the woods I have found several artifacts to confirm my theory. I plan to find the Bigfoot’s shelter and even try to contact the creature.”

Fifteen hundred other witnesses have claimed to have spotted yeti in one remote Siberian area this year.
