Russian and US Scientists Gather to Hunt Down Yeti
October 04, 2011
KEMEROVO, Russia – Scientists from several countries, including Russia and the U.S., will gather in the Kemerova region of Siberia to hunt down the Yeti, after alleged sightings of the legendary creatures increased threefold in the area over the past 20 years. . . .
Igor Burtsev, who heads the Moscow-based International Center of Hominology, said, “When Homo sapiens started populating the world, it viciously exterminated its closest relative in the hominid family, Homo neanderthalensis. Some of the Neanderthals, however, may have survived to this day in some mountainous wooded habitats that are more or less off limits to their arch foes.”
