Scientists Say Mythical Monster The Yeti Is Real, Lives In Siberia

103770942The existence of a giant, apelike monster, alternately known as Bigfoot, the Abominable Snowman, Sasquatch, et cetera, has long been scoffed at and dismissed as a hoax. However, an international team of scientists say the mythical beast is real and roaming the furthest reaches of Russia. Via TIME:

Scientists and yeti enthusiasts believe there may finally be solid evidence that the apelike creature roams the vast Siberian tundra.

A team of a dozen-plus experts from as far afield as Canada and Sweden have proclaimed themselves 95% certain of the mythical animal’s existence after a daylong conference in the town of Tashtagol in the Kemerovo region, some 2,000 miles east of Moscow. In recent years, locals there have reported sightings of the yeti, also known as the abominable snowman.

The Kemerovo government announced on Oct. 10 that a two-day expedition the previous weekend to the region’s Azassky cave and Karatag peak “collected irrefutable evidence” of yetis’ existence on the wintry plateau.

“Conference participants came to the conclusion that the artifacts found give 95% evidence of the habitation of the ‘snow man’ on Kemerovo region territory,” read a statement. “In one of the detected tracks, Russian scientist Anatoly Fokin noted several hairs that might belong to the yeti,” it added. The group also discovered footprints, a presumed bed and various other markers.

The scientific community has historically disputed the existence of the yeti given scant conclusive evidence. But numerous sightings of such creatures have been reported in Himalayan countries and in North America, where it is known as Sasquatch, or bigfoot.

    Maybe he can shift in and out of dimensions or something really cool like cry sour skittles instead of tears, that would be cool.

    Always make me think of how every so often someone says “the Earth is almost full! too many people!” when there are actually huge spaces of yet unexplored territory above and below ground.

      Yeah, so let’s go to those places, cut down all the trees and build some more cities and turn it all into farmland. The fact is these places are shrinking all the time, and will disappear unless they are protected. Humanity already takes 2/3rds of the worlds land area productivity and climbing. I’d say that’s too much.

        I’m not going to argue in favor of Octo-mom or anything… ZPG is a great idea. But the problem is not in numbers its in our poor use of the land. Raping of the amazon, etc. You’re right though, current mind set is money money money, nobody cares about the health of the Earth.

    There is compelling evidence that the sasquatch of north america is a legitimate species, the most famous piece of evidence being the patterson/gimlin film, the infamous film that features what appears to be female sasquatch fleeing up a creekbed and looking back toward the camera.

    There have been numerous attempts to debunk the film, and all have failed, many analysts becoming compelled by the footage, insisting that the figure must be a real animal and not a “man in a suit”. Recent technical analysis shows that the figure was 7 foot and 4 to 6 inches tall, and that anatomically the figure does not have human proportioned limbs, particularly in relation to hips to knees. On top of that, roger patterson never admitted that the film was a hoax, not even on his deathbed, and bob gimlin has remained steadfast in his assertion that it was not a hoax to this day. There have been numerous men that have claimed to be the figure in the suit, but none have stories that stand up to scrutiny, and the man with the highest liklihood of being the man in the suit has changed his story three times, not very compelling if you ask me.

    There is a fairly large amount of other kinds of evidence that also give legitimacy to the creature, including footprints that show evidence of dermal ridges(finger/toe prints), footprints that show evidence of dynamic internal structure that would be incredibly difficult to fake, if not impossible. Hair samples with unidentified primate dna, several auditory recordings that cannot be linked to known animals(some of which are really goddamn hair raising) and a large degree of cohesive eye witness testimony that remains largely consistent, describing creatures usually in excess of 6 feet in hieght, very powerful and bulky body, accompanied by a very strong nauseating musky smell, which is a trait shared by other great apes, and many report a pervasive and intense fear upon sighting, that often compels people to flee. There have been several reports of sasquatches showing behavior not dissimilar from gorillas, of the animals essentially herdng people away from there territory by making fake charges through the underbrush and hurling small to medium sized objects at people.

    Being a resident of the rural pacific northwest and understanding the great amount of wilderness that is still left out here, I am quite sure that these creatures are real. And when one considers the vastness of the wilderness left in central and northern asia I wouldn’t discount the possibility of animals like the yerin or yeti.

      You probably shouldn’t use that film as part of your evidence.  There is more than enough reasonable doubt to suggest that it is very likely a hoax: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patterson-Gimlin_film has a great rundown of the claims and counter-claims.

    The amount of people who saw these creatures spanning over centuries is enough evidence to show that something is going on. We live in a world where seeing is believing. the problem is, we only see a small fraction of the bigger picture and we call that reality, seeing is not necessarily believing someday i hope we understand this.
