GORNO-ALTAISK, September 28 (Itar-Tass) — The Yeti population in the Kemerovo Region has tripled recently. About 30 Yeti species probably live in the highland districts of the Kuzbass coal basin, the press service of the regional authorities cited the director of the International Center of Hominology Igor Burtsev ahead of an international conference on hominology on October 6-8 in Tashtagol.
The scientists from Russia and the United States will make public for the first time the materials, which point to common genetic features of snowmen and homo sapiens, as well as the Yeti sound and speech records, photo and video files at a forthcoming conference. The specialists from Canada, Mongolia, Sweden, Estonia and China will also participate in the forum.
The scientists specialized in hominology and anthropology will undertake an expedition round probable Yeti habitats in Highland Shoria (Siberia) during the conference. Such large-scale event is held in Russia for the first time since 1958, when Prof. Boris Porshnev went on a highly publicized expedition sponsored by the Russian Academy of Sciences to search for “a relic hominid.”
The first reports that the Big Foot lives in the Kuzbass Highland Shoria came three years ago. Russian and foreign scientists believe that the snowmen probably live in these hard-to-reach districts on the border of the Kemerovo Region and the Altai Territory. The official holiday – the Day of Yeti – was even declared in Highland Shoria last year.
