A 12-year-old boy was out camping in the wilds when he stumbled upon a large human-like footprint.
Denis Alexandrov discovered the anomalous footprint, which was about twice of the size of an adult human's foot, near to the campsite he had been staying at in Russia's Kemerovo region.
His father Andrei admitted to being initially skeptical about the existence of the legendary Yeti but had quickly changed his mind on the subject after examining the footprint for himself.
"I'm into hunting so I understand a bit about footprints. We went to the place were the kids saw the footprint, and the only thing I can say was 'I now know it exists'," he said.
"The creature must have been very tall. The edges of the footprint were sharp, which means the creature left the footprint not too long ago. There also was a freshly dug pit nearby."
The discovery follows on from another documented incident that took place in the same region earlier this summer. Artist Andrey Lyubchenko claimed that he had been out hiking when he encountered a tall hominid creature that he maintains had even tried to speak to him.
"The Yeti was about two and a half metres tall, with thick dark brown hair like a bear's - but a lot softer," he said. "He was holding a wooden stick, with bits of hair wrapped around it. But the main thing was his eyes, they were just like light-coloured human eyes."
