Does Bigfoot live in the Russian tundra ?

An international team of experts has concluded that there is a 95% chance of the creature's existence.

Consisting of experts from as far afield as Canada and Sweden, the team met up for a day-long conference in Tashtagol, a town in the Kemerovo region of Russia 2,000 miles from Moscow. Last year an expedition was organised to seek clues in the region's Azassky cave and Karatag peak, an endeavor that allegedly uncovered "irrefutable evidence" of the creature.

"Conference participants came to the conclusion that the artifacts found give 95% evidence of the habitation of the ‘snow man’ on Kemerovo region territory," said a statement. "In one of the detected tracks, Russian scientist Anatoly Fokin noted several hairs that might belong to the yeti."

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

I think you have to be a "Recognized" "Expert" before you can get in the door. Maybe if someone wrote a children's book about bigfoot, that would count?? as if a book about bigfoot shouldn't be labeled as a children's book in itself? lol Because I do not believe in bigfoot you want to label me as a child? Or is it because I like to have fun and crack jokes? Because all adults should act like angry bitter people with sour puss faces 24/7 right? I just find it hilarious that they have a conference on the existance of bigfoot. I was made to be like me no one else, so if no one else finds it funny... [More]

What I find even more peculiar than the article itself is the response by ppl in here. I would have thought before joining this wonderful website (Yes, I love it here) that ppl would be quite biassed to beleive in *anything* out of the mainstream. But what I see in this thread is the exact opposite - almost everyone a disbeliever - at least of this story. curiouser and curiouser lol

What you really have are a bunch of curious critical thinkers who demand cold hard facts after years and years of having their chains yanked. We'd love ... [More]

And many of hte long timers here were once Believers and then became agnostic, and some into hard Skeptics. Myself, I could easily beleve that there are wild people living in Siberia. Even pre-modern humans. But when you see one story after another and they never seem to produce anything tangible, then it gets old quickly. Also the title says "Bigfoot in Russian Tundra". And little lives on the tundra. But Sibera is mostly forest, not open tundra, at least as far as I know. Forest is a lot harder to investigate and gain animal data then open tundra is.

I don't think it's an advertising gimmik to attract tourists. what is the tourist season in northern siberia, 4th of July? that's also mosquito season. and they have kazillions of them I think the team's intentions are legit. I just wish they had provided photos of the beds and tracks.

Our ancestors survived in such harsh regions. It's not like the "Bigfoot" have to be a big monkey, but if they were really intelligent, they would tend to be nomads, what means, that over the years, they had to show up anywhere. Cold? Move on Hungry? Look for food That's how mankind went all times.

They would investigate what we have. They would build some structures to shield themselves from the weather. They would make and use tools.
