New Russian Scientific Bigfoot Expedition

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on September 23rd, 2010

Search for Bigfoot begins in Kemerovo Region

KEMEROVO, September 22 (Itar-Tass) — A fourth science expedition has left for Mountain Shoria (a territory in Southern Siberia, east of the Altai Mountains) earlier on Wednesday in search of any traces of the abominable snowman. Taking part in the expedition will be the director of the International Center for Hominology, Igor Burtsev, deputy president of the public association Kosmopoisk, Vasily Dovgoshei, History Doctor Valery Kimeyev and other experts.

As Igor Burtsev, a participant in several previous expeditions, has told Itar-Tass, the search will last for about ten days. The experts are determined to find irrefutable evidence the Bigfoot (also known by the names of Sasquatch and Yeti) does exist.

“During the previous expedition a year ago I saw markers (half-broken branches) the creature uses to mark the controlled territory,” Burtsev said.

“Mountain Shoria is a perfect place for yetis. It is a sparsely populated, mountainous area, where there are many caves, it is relatively warm and there are sources of pure fresh water. In the mountain rivers fish is in abundance and hunting in the forests must be really good. I reckon the Bigfoot likes to go fowling. In the woods I have found several artifacts to confirm my theory of mine. This time I plan to find the Bigfoot’s shelter and even try to contact the creature.”

The head of the Tashtagol District, Vladimir Makuta, says that the first mention of Bigfoot’s presence in Mountain Shoria dates back to 1980. The creatures seem to have gone especially active over the past three years.Itar-Tass News Agency

    Nice to see Igor Bourtsev is still active and even going strong. I wish him and his team good luck.

    There was a mention on the BBC documentary that is being shown over the last few days and finishes tonight that actually gave me hope for Yetis being found. The BBC documentary The Land of the Lost Tigers an expedition by the same people who found the giant rat etc last year who followed reports of tigers at higher altitudes in the Himalayas, surprised it hasn’t been mentioned here as they found them.

    Well anyway my point was early in the expedition before they had found them, one of the team said maybe the rumour is just a myth like the Yeti is in this region? But then if they find the largest cat in the world in hidden and reclusive in high altitudes with low vegetation cover then an ape could also be missed and waiting to be found?

    Noticed there has been a couple of crypto reports missed the last week by cryptomundo?

    I wish Igor much luck. Although he is a legitimate scientist, he is either lacking in credibility or a very gullible person. His ability to believe the absolute ridiculous claims of Bigfoot at the Carter farm in Tennessee make me question his scientific ability to really look at evidence in a unbiased and realistic fashion.

    Again, I applaud his passion and wish him luck, I just don’t put much weight on his ability to snuff our hoaxes as he took the Carter farm claims hook line and sinker!

    Don’t forget that Igor was in Russia and even when he came over the the US he probably wasn’t savvy to all the ins and outs of the shenanigans involving the Carter farm stuff. I don’t know how well Igor speaks English. Perhaps he was just lead down the garden path and didn’t get to hear of the whole scope that was going on with all the various online whisperings?

    Igor had previously been involved with people in Russia who claimed to have witnessed hominid habituation (a couple of the cases from Russia actually do sound impressive) so yes perhaps the Carter stuff was a case of being a bit gullible and letting his guard down.
