Igor Burtsev, a leading Russian Yeti researcher, Candidate of Historical Sciences, found in Gornaya Shoria (in the south of Kuzbass) a trail and breaks in tree branches, made, he believes, by Bigfoot
In February 2009, the administration of the Kemerovo region disseminated information that in Gornaya Shoria, in the deep taiga near the Azasskaya cave, hunters saw creatures similar to snowmen (yeti). And yesterday Burtsev said that during the expedition he got acquainted with local legends and climbed with a guide into the mountains, where he found an unusual path running across the tourist route, and along it - a dozen broken bird cherry and fir trees.
According to the researcher, these fractures are neat and therefore unlikely to be made by animals. “The discovered trail is the habitat of the Bigfoot. Either he marks a path for himself and for his relatives, or marks it, showing that the territory is occupied, "the scientist explained.
Meanwhile, the expedition to Gornaya Shoria ended. Over the past ten days, the director of the International Center for Hominology, a Moscow scientist Igor Burtsev and a group of specialists have thoroughly investigated this region of Kuzbass.
"Today we can confidently talk about the habitation of these creatures in Gornaya Shoria. We found the so-called" markers "that hominids leave behind, trails that usually go across human paths, and footprints," - said today in an interview with ITAR-TASS Igor Burtsev.
By "markers" hominologists mean special signs with the help of which the yeti communicate with each other. "These are, first of all, the characteristic breaks on the branches of trees. The strength of these creatures is also evidenced by the fact that the branches with a diameter of 7-8 cm were twisted like spirals. We have taken more than a hundred pictures, we have encountered such a phenomenon for the first time. they mark the territory, "Burtsev explained. According to him, only in the area of Mount Karatag, 80 km from the regional center Tashtagol / height 1200 m /, 15 trails of "snow people" were found, accompanied by the application of "markers". All trails run across the trails of people, he said.
During the expedition, several dozen eyewitnesses from various parts of Gornaya Shoria were interviewed. "There were such funny stories when hunters, seeing a two-meter creature, kindled a fire and sat back to back all night, waiting for the yeti to attack. At the same time, the hominid periodically threw branches and roots at them, apparently trying to scare them even more," he said Burtsev.
According to the researcher, local enthusiasts should now join the search for the Yeti. "If they live in tents for at least half a month in the habitat of the" Bigfoot ", they may be able to come into contact with him," Burtsev said. The researcher plans to write a scientific article about the results of the expedition.
