"It should be about creating a new science education, if you will — hominology Institute, which would lead the search, and at the same time — the study found specimens" — said one of Russia's leading professional researchers so-called "Bigfoot" Igor Burtsev , noting that currently the Russian Academy of Sciences does not officially recognize the existence of "Bigfoot" and is skeptical of the work of private investigators.
Last week, the administration of the Kemerovo region spread information that the Mountain Shoria Azasskoy in caves, local hunters saw some humanoid creature covered with hair growth 1.5-2 meters. Annexed the photo out of the cave, which capture may mark an unknown substance.
According to experts, it's all — nothing like a PR campaign by local authorities to attract tourists to the Mountain Shoria.
Burtsev no doubt that these creatures live in the Kuzbass. Burtsev said that this area is part of the Altai mountain range and is considered a breeding ground for "snow people".
"In the late 19th and early 20th century there were met and females with children and just teenagers," — he said, adding that in 1976, he led a search party in the Mongolian Altai, in the Soviet-Mongolian historical and cultural expedition, and there are also researchers gathered a lot of information about these creatures, met with witnesses who saw them.
"So there is nothing special about the fact that in the Kemerovo region have seen" Bigfoot "- he said.
Answering the question of what can be said about the "Kuzbass", "snowman", based on the available information, Burtsev said that photographs published in the media is "too low quality, they can be used to say something."
According to him, it is advisable to go to the very place to "fix everything professionally." But for the expedition to the Kuzbass had no money.
According Burtsev earlier detection messages "Bigfoot" came from different places of the Russian Federation — Western Siberia, Yakutia, Murmansk, Arkhangelsk and Leningrad regions.
According to Burtsev, "snow people" — is Neanderthals lived to this day that have adapted to life in the wild, like all animals.
According to the agency, in Russia it is necessary to create a new institute for the study of so-called "snow people".
"It should be about creating a new science education, if you will — hominology Institute, which would lead the search, and at the same time — the study found the samples," — said Burtsev, noting that currently the Russian Academy of Sciences officially acknowledges the existence of "Bigfoot" and is skeptical of the work of private investigators.
"The attitude of members of RAN can be explained by the existence of" Bigfoot "contrary to established notions of human origins. Second reason is that in 1958 carried out a large expedition to search for the creature in the Pamir Mountains (South of Central Asia). On it were spent considerable funds , but the expedition ended in vain. After that, we decided that enough to spend money on this, as they found, nonsense, and more Academy of Sciences do not do it, "- said Burtsev.
He also said that private investigators have hair, bones, feces, footprints "snowmen", but today there is the opportunity to explore their laboratory. "We have the casts from the papillary pattern, but they have not been studied. DNA tests — very expensive" — said Burtsev.
As previously reported RIA Novosti Head of the Department of Anthropology, Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow), Doctor of Historical Sciences Sergei Vasiliev, anthropologists have never met and did not explore the body "Bigfoot" (Yeti), although information on the meetings with him comes continuously from different places.
In this case, the Yeti always see one individual, that is biological nonsense, said the scientist. After all, there must be a large population of yetis, so she kept from generation to generation. The Earth is not so unexplored subject, and if there was such a population, we knew about it, he said.
According to Vasilyev, information about finding "snow people" — just fancy people. "In reality, they do not exist, and no scientific issues," — said the scientist.
Spokesperson of the Kemerovo regional administration told RIA Novosti earlier that the region will form a scientific expedition, which should confirm or disprove the theory that that an unknown creature, seen by hunters — relic hominid (mammals belonging to the order of primates that have survived to days from the time of man's ancestors), called Bigfoot. To participate and to assist in preparing many enthusiasts, businessmen and hunters.
