'Yeti' filmed on slopes of Spanish ski resort

Is there a Yeti roaming the Pyrenees ? Image Credit: CC BY 3.0 Philippe Semeria
A woefully unconvincing Abominable Snowman has turned up in footage recorded at Formigal in Spain.
The creature, which looks suspiciously like a man wearing a Yeti costume, was allegedly seen roaming the slopes of the popular resort where it was caught on camera by a tourist.

"This morning skiing in Formigal with friends we've come across this," the man wrote. "What the hell is it? We've told the ski resort but they haven't taken us seriously."

"I bet there's something on the loose out there. I know what I saw."

The image managed to generate so much attention on social media that the ski resort ended up having to comb its slopes in an effort to reassure visitors that there wasn't anything there.

"We have spoken to the witnesses of the sighting to identify the area in which it took place and after combing the area we have found nothing," said a spokesman. "We believe therefore that there is no cause for alarm and that visitors' security is guaranteed."

The video footage - all three seconds of it - can be viewed below.

http://www.lavanguardia.com/natural/si-existe/20160210/302045775992/yeti-formigal-youtube-cazado.html Some newspapers are assuring that the ski resort staff and Prosegur (a private security) company have killed the "yeti". They have videos of the alleged transport of the corpse. Personally, I think it's a marketing campaign orcherstred by Aramón Formigal. And by the way, Snow Beast in spanish is Bestia de las Nieves. Google translate sucks, people .

Look at that puny little thing. They must be going for the Jaws 3 approach now.

http://www.elmundo.es/f5/2016/02/11/56bc6a3fe2704e75558b4695.html As I said, it was a viral marketing campaign. Orchestrated by Aramón Formigal (the ski resort) and the ski glasses brand Hawkers.

Well, for a viral campaign, you have to admit it was pretty nicely done

Of course it's fake. As I pointed out earlier, it was a marketing campaign orchestrated by the ski resort and a brand of ski glasses. I understand that the links I provided are from spanish newspapers, and are, of course, in Spanish. I'm aware that not everyone can read Spanish. But c'mon. Why are we still paying attention to this bull****? It's a ******* publicity stunt. Let's forget it and move on, and stop giving the idiots behind the whole thing the attention they seek.
