Have Scientists Found Irrefutable Evidence of Siberian Yeti?
Tracks — check. Probable den — check. Hair sample — check.

To a group of international scientists, this all of this adds up to “irrefutable evidence of the existence of the Yeti in Mountainous Shoria,” according to a release from the Kemerovo administration (via Huffington Post). The release goes on to say the researchers are 95 percent sure of the existence of a yeti in the Kemerovo region of Siberia, based on the evidence they found.
According to PhysOrg, a group of scientists from the United States, Canada and other countries, set out at the invitation of Kemerovo’s governor to find the yeti and then reconvened to share their evidence and stories:
“They found his footprints, his supposed bed, and various markers with which the yeti marks his territory,” the statement said. The collected “artifacts” will be analysed in a special laboratory, it said.
Yetis, or Abominable Snowmen, are hairy ape-like creatures of popular myth, that are generally held to inhabit the Himalayas.
But some believe Russia also holds a population of yetis, which it calls Snow Men, in remote areas of Siberia.
