Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.

 

 

Photos of the 2011 Yeti Expedition are online now. While none can be used as conclusive evidence, they do raise interest to those of us who are waiting for updated information. The team claims to have found evidence of the Yeti in the form of footprints, hair and nests.

The hair was found near the entrance of a cave named Azasskaya. The 7 centimeter long hair will be analyzed by DNA test to see if this belongs to a known creature or not.

 

“…When they returned 40 minutes later, the bear had vanished. There were signs of dragging. They got their dogs to follow the scent but they came to a tree and stopped in their tracks, whimpering in fear.

They all saw a giant hairy figure standing near the tree where the dead bear was lying, torn at the shoulder, blood flowing from a gaping wound where this creature had gouged a huge slice of raw meat…”

 

First hand accounts were also collected by the team, like the one mentioned above, in which a hunter described how something big dragged away his recent kill.

Interestingly, the article mentions some unseen Bigfoot footage that will be released soon from a family in the United States that claim that a large creature has been stalking their home:

 

“We now know a lot of anatomical details from people’s accounts. The neck is very short and very thick, the eyes deeply set, the chin is rounded, the ears are usually covered with hair, the arms are long. The foot looks human-like but is broader. Some people say they can distinguish the males from the more slender females.”

“Bindernagel claims his sighting took place in Ohio in 2007, when a 6ft-tall creature ventured close to a resident’s home. Footage of this beast is to be released soon.”

 

Now I’m wondering when this footage will be released and what it will actually show. It’s been one too many times where I’m left disappointed with overly-hyped video evidence. Let’s see what they have in store.

Experts at an international Yeti conference in Russia this week insisted they are only months away from proving the beast really exists.

Igor Burtsev, head of The International Center Of Hominology, said at the meeting in Tashtagol: “We are on the brink of finding the Yeti at long last.”

The Sun was there to listen to the deadly serious Burtsev claiming at least 30 hulking creatures roam the Kemerovo region where the conference was being held.

He said the Yeti — also known as Bigfoot and Sasquatch — is the missing link between Neanderthal man and modern human beings.

“We have good evidence of Yeti in our region,” said Burtsev. “And now we have convincing details from experts elsewhere in Russia and in the US and Canada.

“The description of the habits of the Abominable Snowman are similar from all over the world.”

Russian authorities are so keen to find Bigfoot, they have offered one million roubles (£20,000) for information leading to its discovery.

Adding to the bank of “evidence” presented at the conference was 70-year-old Canadian Yeti-hunter John Bindernagel, who reckons he has seen the creature for himself.

He said: “We now know a lot of anatomical details from people’s accounts. The neck is very short and very thick, the eyes deeply set, the chin is rounded, the ears are usually covered with hair, the arms are long. The foot looks human-like but is broader. Some people say they can distinguish the males from the more slender females.”

Bindernagel claims his sighting took place in Ohio in 2007, when a 6ft-tall creature ventured close to a resident’s home. Footage of this beast is to be released soon.

He said: “The people in the house have seen it quite often. They made some films that will be screened later this year.”

Yeti specialists from Russia, the US, Canada, Sweden and Estonia also gathered at the seminar to DNA-test a 7cm hair clump found last week in the region’s Azasskaya cave during a four-day Yeti hunt.

But locals claim the sample is a hoax to encourage more tourists to the far-flung region.

Also revealed is a photo of a “footprint” but the markings are too vague to be conclusive.

Moscow architect Anatoly Fokin, 55, gave up his occupation nine years ago to hunt for the Yeti. Since then he has collected details of sightings in Russia’s Kirov region. In one 2007 case, hunters killed a bear and left the scene to get a truck to take it away.

He said: “When they returned 40 minutes later, the bear had vanished. There were signs of dragging. They got their dogs to follow the scent but they came to a tree and stopped in their tracks, whimpering in fear.

“They all saw a giant hairy figure standing near the tree where the dead bear was lying, torn at the shoulder, blood flowing from a gaping wound where this creature had gouged a huge slice of raw meat.”

Villagers also recounted how a “Leshiy” — or forest man in Russian — used brute strength to skin a dead elk it stole from hunters.

Liliya Zenkova, 47, a local government official, told how on a camping trip with her husband and friend in a remote area in Siberia she fell asleep on her car’s back seat, with the windows open.

“At 5am I felt my right hand being caressed,” she said. “I knew it couldn’t be my husband — it was so gentle with such soft hair.

“I looked outside and saw this creature moving slowly away. Almost two metres tall, grey hair. His head looked like it was sunk into his shoulders. I knew he wasn’t human, he had on no clothes.

“My husband told me not to tell anyone because they would think I was mad. But now stories have started to appear about the Yeti, I want to explain what happened.”

    Jeff,

    Where or when are you getting your DNA analyzed? It will decompose so the quicker the better. I’m putting out a phone call as I type this to some labs that may do it.

    The DNA that I have was taken off my windows by a 15 year Forensic Police Officer who is employeed with the Fresno Police Dept and the DNA is sealed in Police official tubes and is being kept in a temperature controled climate. Mickey Burrow, Forensic expert, said that the DNA will last forever….I am speaking at the http://www.UFOXFEST.com in the Bay area of Calif. on October 22, 2011, I’m hoping to make some good contacts….I will also be debuting for the first time, both windows of my truck, which will be enclosed in a glass case instructed by the Forensic expert to keep the DNA from being contaminated. There is still a lot of DNA on the windows in case I need to take some more samples.

    Scott I totally agree with the numerous pieces of evidence getting so much hype than turning out to become nothing at all. It’s desensitizing us.
