We're 95pc certain the Yeti exists, says Siberia

AFTER a rise in sightings and a conference devoted to providing evidence of the fabled creature's existence, Siberian officials have proclaimed that they are "95pc certain" of the existence of the Yeti, writes Shaun Walker

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)
