The bold claim comes after a gathering of "Yeti experts" in the Kemerovo region.

Those in attendance swapped stories testifying to the existence of the forest-dwelling semi-human beasts.

With Yeti sightings apparently up 300pc over the past two decades, the town of Tashtagol was chosen to host the international conference.

Participants went on a hike through nearby forest land and found outsized footprints in caves.

Sceptics suggested, however, that the whole exercise was a weak attempt to boost tourism to the Siberian region. (© Independent News Service)
