Posted on 11/24/2011 12:22:32 PM PST by nickcarraway
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.
Although many of the "mysteriously" twisted tree limbs are conveniently near ground level, some are found at the top of trees. Bigfoot researchers claim these are stronger evidence of the Yeti's existence, because whereas any hoaxer could easily twist small, waist-level branches, only a Bigfoot-like animal would be able to climb up that high.

Ya think? < /s>
There’s one in the West wing too
It seems if they had enough hair they could run the DNA of the critters.
Must be. Humans don’t have any equipment or gear that would allow them to climb high up a tree.
I mean, I see a fence, and I have no idea how I’m going to get over it if someone hasn’t put in a door somewhere.
... Found right next to some crop circles!
Mmmmm.. Yeti! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCj5q1qWgzs
Maybe they are tidy.
There are crop circles out there that really are a natural phenominon. The vast big ones are hoaxes, but small ones creep up from time to time that no one knows for sure why. Probably not anything like aliens, more like soil composition and probably something with the wind.
They must know how to bury their dead too because there are never any carcasses anywhere it seems.
Must be. Humans dont have any equipment or gear that would allow them to climb high up a tree.
I didn't see your sarcasm tag. :o)
I hear that yetis keep chupacabras as pets.
I believe its authenticity is unquestionable. There's simply no question about it. :-)
