Three Yeti sightings reported in Siberia

Sightings of the elusive hominid are on the rise ahead of next month's conference and expedition.

In one incident government official Sergei Adlyakov communicated a sighting from a Shorsky National Park state inspector who said "the creature did not look like a bear and quickly disappeared after breaking some branches off the bushes." In another case fisherman Vitaly Vershinin witnessed what he believed to be two of the creatures near Myski village. "Sailing up the river I saw on the bank what I thought were two bears," he said. "When they noticed me, they easily stood straight upright and went away... I did not wish to chase them."

The third incident occured in Siberia's Kemerovo region by some locals who remain unnamed. "We were sailing in a boat without an engine," they told officials. "On the rock above the Mras-Su River we saw some tall animals looking like people. We realised that they were not in dark clothes but covered by dark fur. They did walk like people."

"Russia's leading 'yeti expert' Igor Burtsev, head of the International Centre of Hominology, said he believes the supposed Myski sighting to be 'significant' though was unaware of the later National Shorsky Park case."

However, you must take many other things into consideration: The amount of sightings in areas that are well populated. The footprints that cannot be tracked. The lack of any evidence. The lack of any clear photos or videos.

Im saying if yeti/bigfoot doesnt exist than why are there accounts of it being sighted all over the world practically, and obviously what you said is a stupid thing to do, thats why you have to have witness accounts of the creatures actual existance. Remember lack of evidence doesnt mean the evidence is not around we just havent found it yet.

Search the threads here for Bigfoot, patterson film, etc.... Every thing is explained numerous times as to why they do not exist.....From fossils, to physical evidence, to breeding population, to dead bodies, to trail cameras, to environment ( people around ).....No need to post it all again. And yes, " lack of evidence " does mean " no evidence ".....There is none at all.

Fair enough, but I think the most we can conclude is that bigfoot doesn't exist in human-populated places and that people in those places enjoy a good story. That doesn't absolutely rule out the existence of a breeding population in some sparsely-inhabited place like (for instance) northern Burma. Or even Siberia, although I suspect the winters wouldn't be survivable without hibernation. In this case I'm more inclined to believe in Russian publicists blowing smoke than yet another Yeti, though.

Panda's and Gorillas were just folklore not too long ago too despite countless eyewitness accounts and no physical evidence.

Yes, but they were 'folklore' to people far away: to the people who lived near pandas and gorillas, they were just critters. And in an age of near-instant, near-ubiquitous communication, we're all 'near' bigfoot - if he's there.

The main difference being that once people started looking for Pandas and Gorillas, they found them rather quickly because being real animals, they leave behind actual evidence, participate in the food chain, die and leave carcasses, etc. All things which all "cryptids" we discuss in these threads have somehow failed to do for hundreds of years. Because they are most likely fake.
