A video has emerged which appears to show a Yeti or Bigfoot in Russia.
Is the dark hairy creature seen in the film [below] the ever elusive Yeti? Or could it just be a bear? Perhaps its some crazy hermit living in the back woods of Russia?
From Epic Wildlife:
Reports have been pouring from the south-western Adygeya Republic of a large creature covered in hair from head to toe being spotted in a remote area about an hour away from the city of Adygeisk.
Recently a team of researchers headed to the area to see if they could catch this yeti on camera.
Do you know what the difference is between a yeti and bigfoot?
The theory is that they both are some lost species or descendants of Gigantopithecus, the difference is that Bigfoot is believed to live in the forests, mountains and swamps of North America, while the Yeti is believed to live in the mountainous snowy regions of the Himalayas or North East Asia and is smaller than its North American cousin.
Residents in the area have claimed to have seen and heard the creature outside in the snow.
One eyewitness Ludmila Hristoforova told a local television news reporter that “The creature was big, looking like a bear, but not a bear. From the door we’ve seen something big and shaggy.”
The research team claims they heard the crunching of snow and immediately headed outside and caught this footage of the creature.
Eye witness descriptions and this footage fit the traditional description of a yeti. A bipedal creature covered with dark grayish or reddish brown hair, weighs between 200 and 400 pounds and is about 6 feet tall.
The team also found a rather large foot print in the snow, presumably left behind by the monster. They made sure to make a plaster cast of the print and sent it off to scientists.
The footprints were 2-3 inches deep and it is estimated it would take a creature as heavy as 440 pounds (200 kilos) to press the snow down that much.
So what do you think of this latest sighting? Real or Hoax.
Interestingly enough, this footage reminds me a lot of the the most famous and controversial big foot film of all time. It was shot in 1967 by friends
Roger Patterson and Robert Gimlin and almost 50 years later, we still don’t know if it was real or a hoax.
