Russian Yeti expert and head of the International Centre of Hominology Igor Burtsev, tried to hunt down the beast last year. He claimed to have discovered samples of yeti hair. But as yet, no DNA analysis of the hair he supposedly found has been released.
Local government official Sergei Adlyakov told Trud newspaper a state inspector spotted one of the animals in Shorsky National Park.
“The creature did not look like a bear and quickly disappeared after breaking some branches of the bushes,” he was quoted as saying.
But when Mr Adlyakov was asked about the sighting by the Siberian Times he said it was “private” and never meant to go public.
In August fisherman Vitaly Vershinin told another local Siberian newspaper he saw two creatures near Myski village.
