'Yeti' Sightings On The Rise In Russia
A group of yetis are on the loose in Sibera, fishermen and a forestry worker have claimed.
There were three reported sightings in recent weeks.
One person who reported spying the beast said We shouted, Do you need help? They rushed away, all in fur, walking on two legs, making their way through the bushes and with two other limbs, straight up the hill.
The person who made the report added: It could not be bears, as the bear walks on all fours, and they ran on two. Then they were gone.
On a second sighting on the bank of the Mras-Su River several days later, an unnamed fisherman was quoted as saying: We saw some tall animals looking like people.
He added: 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.
We realized that they were not in dark clothes but covered by dark fur. They did walk like people.
And in a third sighting a forestry inspector reported seeing a yeti in a national park, a government official said.
Sergei Adlyakov said: The creature did not look like a bear and quickly disappeared after breaking some branches off the bushes.
Russias leading yeti expert Igor Burtsev, head of the International Center of Hominology, claimed sightings were significant.
At a similar expedition last year, he claimed to have found yeti hair though no DNA findings have been released.
He claims the creature -- also known as bigfoot and Sasquatch -- is the missing link between Neanderthal man and modern human beings.

“We waved at the animals but they did not respond.” More of those surly teenage Yetis. Ask them to pick up after themselves.....they’ll probably flip you off.
I did not know Moochelle Obozo was on vacation in Russia.
“We saw some tall animals looking like people.”
Probably giraffes wearing baseball caps and those pants hanging off their butts.
“You married a Sasquatch, Gus!”
There was a great book written in the late 60’s or early 70’s, ABOMINABLE SNOWMEN; LEGEND COME TO LIFE, by Ivan T. Sanderson. Stories of these creatures in Russia’s Pamir mountains go back hundreds of years, pre-vodka!
Believer or not, it’s a good read.
