Yeti and similar creatures seem to inhabit almost every corner of the earth, including as cold as Alaska. Skeptics believe that people don't see yeti, but bald bears, but hunters know what sick bears look like
Local indigenous peoples of Alaska called inuit regularly see a strange humanoid creature, about 3 meters tall and heavily overgrown with wool. Some claim that they saw with their own eyes how frightened deer ran away from this monster.
The elders claim that this creature bears the name Thornith and that it has lived alongside the Inuit for many hundreds, if not thousands, of years. Thornith is often mentioned in local folk myths and is considered a bloodthirsty predator.
Thornith is described as a ubiquitous yeti, and the creature's footprints resemble large human feet.
Cryptozoologist Andrew McGrath says that Thornith's neighbor, the Northwest Sasquatch, is a distinctly vetegarian, feeding mainly on roots and berries, while Thornith himself is a 100% predator and especially loves deer meat.
“There is one Inuit family that goes out every autumn to hunt deer in the forest between Barrow and the Atkazuk community. They claim to have met Thornith several times and even saw him chase a herd of deer.
At that moment, they were only a mile from their temporary camp, when they suddenly saw a herd of caribou deer running towards them, pursued by a large black creature. On another occasion, the family saw three tall black figures watching them from the hill near their hut, "McGrath says.
"Another eyewitness claimed that when he was sailing on a boat, this creature pursued him, running along the bank down the river until it disappeared into the thickets."
According to McGrath, the only logical explanation is that these strange black creatures could have been severely bald polar bears. It is known that polar bears have black skin and if a bear grows decrepit and its fur begins to fall out strongly, then outwardly it will look very strange. Especially if it gets up on two hind legs.
However, only sick polar bears clearly cannot explain all encounters with yeti in Alaska, and such experienced hunters as Inuit could always distinguish something strange from a bald bear.
