New Yeti resort to be opened in Siberia

The park is being promoted as a place from which visitors will have a chance to glimpse the creature.
[!gad]Complete with a hotel and a themed children's playground, the Yeti resort will be located in the Shoria Mountain area of Siberia's Kemerovo region. Critics have argued that the project is little more than a crude attempt to bring in tourists and that there is next to no chance of actually seeing a Yeti while staying at the resort. Nonetheless, the number of sightings reported in the region is likely to attract a lot of visitors.

The Kemerovo region has been in the news a lot lately with regard to expeditions seeking evidence of the elusive creature. Remote caves are said to have yielded tantalizing clues such as unidentifiable hair samples but so far nothing conclusive has been found.

Local governor Aman Tuleyev has pledged to award one million rouble to anyone who can prove the creature's existence. "I'll pay a million to anyone who will find the Yeti and bring it to see me. I'll sit down with him, chat and have a cup of tea," he said.
The development is in an area of the world that claims to have one of the highest number of sightings of a legendary creature also known as Bigfoot.

Actually this might be a good idea lets get the governments around the world to turn large areas of forest into national parks for the preservation of the Bigfoot anyway it could help the flora & fauna.

33k for a Yeti? The thing is worth millions maybe even hundreds of millions if real.

33k for a Yeti? The thing is worth millions maybe even hundreds of millions if real. True, but it's the most concrete offer I've heard so far.

Thanks for posting Still Waters, now all those Yeti sightings from Siberia in 2012 make so much more sense...

I see the evil scheme. The governor is making people come to the resort in hope of getting a million dollars if they catch the yeti and the sightings are planted by the governor's men to attract people to the resort which you obviously have to pay to enter.

It says, to anyone who can catch one.. and clearly he wants a cup of tea with the creature... Maybe i should just act like America doesnt have a king an queen program. Do a little dance..

Waiting for someone to import a gorilla secretively and tranq darting it. Easiest thing to do IMHO.

I'm not sure if a Yeti resort is such a good idea. Your average Yeti could never afford to stay there.

But then no one can recover the WW2 airplane wrecks in the park. Anyways, if this is real, and someone actually manages to get a yeti, how the hell do they think they will capture it?!??
