Default Russians claim 'indisputable proof' of Yeti



(Image not current)

ussian researchers looking for the yeti the Asian version of the North American Bigfoot claim to have found "indisputable proof" of the long-sought mystery beast in Siberia.

There isn't a ton of evidence to work with just a few strands of hair and some tracks in the snow but it's enough that the research team says its 95 percent sure that the yeti exists. Others, however, are mighty skeptical of the findings.

The yeti is said to be muscular, covered with dark grayish or reddish-brown hair, and weigh between 200 and 400 pounds. The yeti is relatively short compared to Bigfoot, averaging only about six or seven feet in height.

Despite dozens of expeditions into the remote mountain regions of Russia, China and Nepal, both creatures' existence remains unproven. Sir Edmund Hillary, who was the first to scale Everest with sherpa Tenzing Norgay, found no evidence of the creature. Famous mountaineer Reinhold Messner also spent months in Nepal and Tibet, climbing mountains and researching yeti reports following his own sighting. In his book "My Quest for the Yeti" (St. Martin's Griffin, 2001), Messner concludes that large native bears are responsible for yeti sightings and tracks.

So what is the general consensus, exist or not exist?

I say although it's possible, I am going with the bear theory.

Yeah, that doesn't seem possible if they exist.

A true scientist is not going to make a statement of 95% sureness with minimal evidence - such as a few strands of hair and some foot prints. The Vodka must be flowing heavy over yonder!

I am thinking a Bear. Our eyes play tricks on us as well and people exaggerate, so who knows.

But we never know, i think theres a good chance there is aliens, so why not a yeti too then, and the boogeyman lol

I swear I saw him when I was little.

I grew up watching scary movies so I remember trying the Candyman and Bloody Mary chants. Nothing ever happened.
