Skip to comments.Yeti 'Nests' Found in Russia?
Posted on 11/18/2011 6:30:49 PM PST by decimon
Bigfoot researcher and biologist John Bindernagel claims his research group has found evidence that the Yeti (a Russian "cousin" of the American Bigfoot) not only exists, but builds nests and shelters by twisting tree branches together.
"We didn't feel like the trees we saw in Siberia had been done by a man or another mammal.... Twisted trees like this have also been observed in North America and they could fit with the theory that Bigfoot makes nests. The nests we have looked at are built around trees twisted together into an arch shape," Bindernagel told the British tabloid The Sun.
Bindernagel was part of a small group of scientists who visited western Siberia to examine evidence of the Yeti in October. That group made headlines around the world for issuing a statement that they had "indisputable proof" of the Yeti and were 95 percent sure it existed based on the evidence a few strands of hair they found.
Tree twisting, also called splintering, has been claimed as Bigfoot evidence for decades throughout the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere. In some cases tool markings have been found on trees said to have been twisted by Bigfoot. This suggests that the creatures are even possibly more intelligent than previously suspected and may be able to somehow locate and use pliers, monkey wrenches, and other common hardware tools.

Unless the marks were made by human hoaxers.

Oh please Santa? This would be PERFECT!
As God is my witness, I had no idea yetis could fly.
What! No pictures.
I’ll bet they smell just like one of those “occupy” union camps.
This is no big deal. The animals in Zuccotti Park were seen doing this too.
They prolly share close DNA structures to Yeti.
Michelle is in Russia?
LOL. . Best WKRP episode ever! Thanks for the memories.
Yeah, but let’s see him master a coax-splitter.
You’re gonna be disappointed:
Isn’t there a show in Vegas ‘The flying yetis’? Are were they The flying yentas? That would be cool The flying yeti yentas!
Not at all. Now I know there are Yetis near me. Thanks.
This was probably Dr. Mann’s work ~ he needed more Siberia tree rings to prove that it’s getting warmer.
The Yeti footprint in the snow was pretty convincing.
The shrub limbs tangled together ... not so much.
If they can elude homo sapiens and all the headaches he manages to give himself, they're probably a helluvalot smarter than the rest of us.
