Deputy head of the Sheregesh administration Igor Idimeshev said on the Voice of Russia that plans are underway to built a Yeti Park and Museum. It will be built in Shoria in Russia’s Kemerovo region where the existence of Bigfoot or the Yeti has officially been recognized. Dubbed the Siberian Switzerland for its great scenic nature Shoria situated where the Altai and Sayan mountains meet. There have been many sightings of the Yeti there and is called Master of the Taiga by locals. Shoria over the last few years has become a Mecca for Bigfoot research and reports in the region. There has even been a one million ruble award made by Kemerovo Govenor Aman Tuleyev for anyone who can find and bring him a relict hominid.
Researchers from China , United States, Mongolia , Canada, Sweden, and Estonia attended a Yeti conference in Kemerovo in 2011 stated that evidence collected 95% confirmed that the area could indeed be a Yeti habitat. Anatoly Fokin a Russian speleologist has been collecting artifacts and eye witness reports from the area that he believes could prove that the Yeti does indeed exist. Large footprints which are believed to be that of a Yeti were found in one of the area caves known as the Azas Cave. Fokin claims that along with the large footprints were hair samples also believed to be from Bigfoot or Yeti. He says these caves are virtually impossible to get to and if the prints were human it would of been clear right away. He says on the expedition a string of unusual footprints were discovered that he thinks are typical of the Yeti and plaster cast were made of many of them for further research.
The new Yeti park and museum will offer a chance for visitors to see exhibits offering natural proofs of the existence of Bigfoot or Yeti. They will invite scientist from everywhere to help and participate in the museum’s creation. And the location will also be used to host science conferences dedicated to the Yeti and Bigfoot.
