Could Footprint Belong to ‘Bigfoot’?

Campers near the Kemerovo Region of Russia woke up to an astonishing sight. Denis Alexandrov and his friends were enjoying the hiking trails inside of Shorsky National Park when they noticed something unusual in the wet clay. Curious, his father Andrei decided to venture over and investigate,”We went to the place where the kids saw the footprint, and the only thing I can say was ‘I now know it exists’. “The creature must have been very tall.”

According to the Siberian Times, the print measured approximately 18 inches in length.

Could it be a simple hoax?

Skeptics of the image point out that the creature’s footprint appears too clean to reveal distinguishing lines or marks, as if it were created by an adult foot through a sliding motion in the mud. The shape of the toe pattern also appears similar to the shape of the toes of the adult foot depicted in the comparison photo below.

Search for the Elusive Yeti Continues

No hair, tissue samples or imprints of the foot were known to have been collected at the site. Samples that have been collected at other sites around the region have been DNA tested. One sample allegedly belonged to a horse and the other two samples belonged to an American Black Bear — not native to the region. Still, Bigfoot enthusiasts claim that anywhere from 30-200 roam could southern Siberia.

Do you have any further information about this story? What do you think this could be? Have you witnessed Bigfoot?
