Does Bigfoot Live in Russia?

7. October 2009 by Christy 0 Comments

Early this year, a group of Russian scientists explored an isolated cave rumored to house Yeti, otherwise known as the Abominable Snowman or Bigfoot. Headed by yeti expert Igor Burtsev, the expedition explored the Azasskaya Cave in the Kemerovo region of Russia after several local hunters reported seeing apelike men in the area. Though the expedition was cut short due to dangerous winter weather, scientists claim to have found faint footprints inside the cave.


Burtsev and his men were unable to explore the full length of the cave as large snowdrifts threatened the safety of the explorers. Not only that, Burtsev said, but the expedition would need an experienced team of speleologists to properly explore the cave’s depths. Other than the faint footprints found just inside the cave, explorers saw no evidence of yeti’s presence. Burtsev hopes to launch a more extensive expedition sometime in the near future.


Dozens of sightings have been reported in the Kemerova region, all during the months of winter. The most recent rash of sightings began last November with most coming from local hunters. One hunter even photographed what he said was a yeti track in the snow, though scientists can’t confirm its validity.


Until someone is able to capture this mysterious creature, dead or alive, rumors of yeti will continue to thrive.
