The yeti has long been a cryptozoological mystery – the Siberian equivalent of Bigfoot. Now, the Russian region of Kemerovo is claiming that a contingent of scientists have proven the existence of a yeti within their borders.
The scientific claims of Kemerovo
The governor of Kemerovo, Siberia, called a conference of scientists and journalists to the coal-mining region of the Russian country. Researchers from several countries, including the United States and Canada, attended the conference. Reportedly, the group of researchers found footprints, a bed of sticks and some coarse hair samples in the Azasskaya cave. The regional administration calls this evidence “indisputable proof that the Shoria mountains are inhabited by the ‘Snow Man’,” the colloquial name for the yeti or Abominable Snowman.
Waiting on proof
While the regional government claims this evidence is indisputable proof of the yeti, other scientists are not so sure. The coarse hair has not been tested for DNA, and no physical specimen of the yeti has been captured. Much of the evidence discovered by researchers in the region is on level with similar evidence captured by North American researchers trying to prove the existence of Bigfoot or Sasquatch. Scores of evidence have been collected, but no physical specimen or incontrovertible evidence has been collected.
A tourism stunt in Russia?
Many have been calling out this claim of proof of the Yeti as nothing more than a tourism stunt. The Kemerovo region of Russia has been very heavily focused on industry and mining. In the Western end of Siberia, tourism is a minor industry. Many of the mines are slowing, however, and the government is hoping to improve tourism in the area. While not directly stated in the press release, the regional government has stated that they may:
“create a special research center to study the Yeti” in the regional university and “create a journal” dedicated to the science of the Yeti”
