Yeti Stalks Bikini-Clad Student

Posted by: Loren Coleman on August 31st, 2009

I’m speechless. This just in…

Reporter Jason Clarke at at the UK’s Morning Starr (not “Morning Star” as previously mentioned) appears to be the one responsible for tracking down this update and the new video in the Polish media:

A terrified teenage student has told how a Yeti spied on her in her bikini as she took a dip in a stream on a camping trip.

Yeti-hunters have been flocking to Poland’s remote Tatra mountains after reported sightings and films showing a large, hairy ape-like creature emerged last week. (See here.)

Now new footage has surfaced apparently showing one of the beasts stalking Justyna Folger, 19, during a camping trip with boyfriend Tadeusz Serafinowski in the Tatra mountains.

While Justyna paddles for her boyfriend’s camera, a shadowy hulk can be seen creeping through the undergrowth on the other side of the river bank.

“I wandered into the river for a dip when I realised that something was on the opposite shore,” Justyna told Poland’s Super Express newspaper.

“At first I thought it was a bear but it appeared to be stooping and then it raised itself on to two legs and ran off. I couldn’t believe it,” she added.

Now mountain rangers are on alert and hunting for the mysterious beast.

National Park Guards Commander Edward Wlazlo said: “We are investigating the matter. If there is something out there we will find it.”

Yeti experts have been flocking to the mountains since Piotr Kowalski, 27, from Warsaw, filmed a Yeti-like creature emerging from a Tatra mountain path.

“I saw this huge ape-like form hiding behind the rocks. When I saw it it was like being struck by a thunderbolt,” he said.

His film has been handed over for examination to the Nautilus Foundation, which deals with unexplained phenomena.

“The film clearly shows ‘something’ that moves on two legs and is bigger than a normal man,” says Foundation President Robert Bernatowicz.

“But because the camera shakes so much it is difficult to say what it is exactly. We need to go to the site and see what traces, if any, were left.”

    Interesting stuff could have been a bear, a big bear. This film shows almost nothing but I am impressed with creature’s hair/fur. If this is a suit it looks to be made from an animal pelt. If this is some guy running around in the woods with a yeti suit on I hope he is wearing body armor.

    It may be my eyes, but even though this film shows almost nothing, I find it more believable. It may be a case of misidentification. There is not enough footage to prove it as a hoax or not.

    The film of the supposed creature in the rocks is pretty comical to me. In my opinion it is a guy in a suit and he is not a very good Yeti impersonator. I wish he was wearing a white suite, that would have been very funny.

  2. JMonkey responds:

    Great, a perverted Bigfoot, just what we needed. In the Yeti’s defense the girl is easy on the eyes, and has a nice voice. I hope they catch this Yeti, which I will be nicknaming Peeping Tom. Just Kidding. I barely saw anything with the terrible video, but there was definitely something large and hairy there. Maybe it was my high school friend, but I believe he may have been hairier than this Yeti.

  3. Brothermidnight responds:

    Its real hard to tell but it looks kind of like an orangutan to me.

  4. tropicalwolf responds:


    A couple of thoughts…

    All this K-Rap out of “Poland” is bogus…enough already.

    There was clearly nothing intelligent enough to be a sasquatch portrayed in that video…(in case there is any doubt, I am including the “actress” in that statement).

    And, (in an effort to get Mr Coleman to smile) I would like to state that this should clear up any assumptions about sasquatch sexuality 🙂

    Finally, everything recently out of Poland = B to the O to the GUS…

  5. cryptidsrus responds:

    I can understand why the “Yeti” would want to “hit” that. 🙂
    The Almighty has definitely been good to her.

    Too indistinct for any “definite” identification, but certainly provocative. Hopefully the rangers MAY find more “information.”

    Probably Ole Hairy was just curious as to who these folks were. 🙂

  6. Decembrium responds:

    Interesting. Not the clearest of videos, but I’d assume it’s a bear. Still, a pleasant watch.

    A small correction… the organisation in question is Morning Starr, a UK based forum, not Morning Star, the UK’s only daily Communist newspaper.

  7. tropicalwolf responds:


    Giant beaver…..maybe….

  8. springheeledjack responds:

    I think this adds to my post on the other one about the ability of the human hands ability to hold a camera still. He can’t even keep her in the center of the screen through most of it. That is pretty typical I think, and though it IS frustrating as we try to watch and actually see something, what are you gonna do?

    Again, it has a “real” feel and look to it, and the something seen is a lot more obscure…but until we have a body, you can debate it to death without ever achieving certainty.

  9. geekomancer responds:

    I’m… gonna call CGI on this. It was way too quick and it didn’t FEEL right in the video.

  10. shownuff responds:

    i didnt really see a human walking animal… Keep filming people, never know..

  11. ogopogoman64 responds:

    if you pause it at 00:29 sec, u can definitely see a humanoid shape fleeing, in my opinion, guy in an ape suit, or the “Polish Peeper”

  12. wisaaka responds:

    are there bigfoot reports in poland? I mean I know there are from all around the world, and Ive heard several from the ukraine and the Urals, but has there been many from reports from poland and in the area of the video? As for the video, Ive no idea what to make of it, but at least it puts the focus (mine at least) on cryptids in that part of the world. Even if it is a fake or a misidentification mabye some better evidence from other sightings o encounters might bubble up on the internet because of it.

  13. DNS responds:

    Why do just one video? I mean, if you already have the monkey suit…

  14. quatchibc responds:

    After reading this news report and the previous polish news report, this caught my attention instantly

    “But because the camera shakes so much it is difficult to say what it is exactly. We need to go to the site and see what traces, if any, were left.”
    That is from the Polish Yeti Footage Report

    Strange how it is exactly that occurance once again, that will hinder the report.

  15. Steleheart responds:

    Speechless here too – I dunno if there was a Yeti there, but it was nice to watch.
    Maybe if bigfoot put on a bikini we would get more clarity in the videos?

  16. raisinsofwrath responds:

    How many Polish Yeti’s does it take to spy on a bikini girl? Two: One to pretend to be a tree and the other to hide behind him.

    Frankly it seems quite obvious that two incidents in an area that I’ve never even heard of gives off a stench that not even a real Yeti could match. Coincidence? Not likely.

  17. praetorian responds:

    This new Polish “Yeti” video makes the previous one even more suspect. Why the same amount of camera shake in both videos? Why does the filming just stop when the creature appears? Why was the exact same language used to describe two separate incidents (“But because the camera shakes so much it is difficult to say what it is exactly. We need to go to the site and see what traces, if any, were left.”)? Why were both incidents reported to the same paranormal group? Why the B-movie bad acting?

    The Nautilus Foundation does exist and does have an interesting looking website (unfortunately, it’s in Polish only). I think both videos are part of a summer hoax that was presented to them and they’re just trying to get some mileage out of it.

  18. Jeremy_Wells responds:

    Hmmm. Well, it’s short.

    It also wouldn’t be the first time that we’ve heard of a primate attracted to human females (one commenter mentioned orangs, which have shown a sexual affinity for human females).

    That said, this is rather little to go on, as far as evidence. I, too, am impressed by the fur detail I can see, but the clip is very short. I’d love to interview the witnesses though.

  19. steele79 responds:

    this is a break through Loren !!…so Bigfoot like pretty bikini clad polish girls well now the bait is set… just need to lay a trap and a Bigfoot should be caught in a matter of days

  20. zealous responds:

    One of the first things i noticed about the article and the video is this:

    While Justyna paddles for her boyfriend’s camera, a shadowy hulk can be seen creeping through the undergrowth on the other side of the river bank.

    “I wandered into the river for a dip when I realised that something was on the opposite shore,” Justyna told Poland’s Super Express newspaper.

    But the camera seems to rotate around instead of focusing on anything behind the girl.

  21. snoop24 responds:

    Oh great thats all we need Yetis from poland they will be working in Tesco or Asda in the UK soon.

  22. Rael responds:

    It isn’t strange at all that her boyfriend would just stand there filming while some guy or some thing ogled his girl…

  23. ualam responds:

    i hope we get m.k. davis enhancements. then we’ll learn more about this yeti. the whole story

  24. simianfever responds:

    Hoaxes or mis-identification would be my guesses. The only words I could personally make out were from the guys on the mountain who swear a couple times. Those are first words you learn from a friend who speaks another language but wanting to get a gist of how natural the language was I consulted with this friend who speaks Polish and this was his take on the two recent videos out of Poland….

    “the one of the girl and bf is total crap… even their lines in polish sound fake – nobody talks like that…… the guys on the mountain are super believable…. I guess they only see it through zoom – so they both switch off which is why the camera shakes…”

  25. Bigfoot73 responds:

    The first film could only be more unconvincing if it started dancing.The text with it claims that in all the centuries of rumours nobody ever saw one before! What rumours and why not?The second one would need more than a fleeting glimpse of a fur coat to be credible.
    The old regime collapsed years ago and all that has emerged since is this? Sad.

  26. Cryptoraptor responds:

    If the “creature” is too blurry to identify why lead with the speculation that it may be something that has not been proven to exist? If it makes sense to narrow down the identity by giving the non-existant the same possibility as the existing why not speculate that it may be a t-rex?
