Man meets Yeti and has a chat

Despite the recent revelations that the Loch Ness monster was in fact a humungous old catfish instead of a prehistoric magical dinosaur, it seems that there is still no shortage of people who think they’ve seen a mythical creature.

This time the beast in question is everyone’s favourite hirsute giant, the Yeti.

A man in Russia is claiming that he saw the bigfoot in the remote mountainous region of Kemerovo in the wilds of the Russian countryside. His claims don’t stop there though, oh no. 

Andrey Lyubchenko

The man, Andrey Lyubchenko who is a respected artist, says that not only did he see the creature but also had - wait for it - a nice little chat with it. Sadly, being a different species and not actually existing, the conversation was brief. The abominable snowman simply gave his name as “Ta-ban”.

Mr. Lyubchenko said Ta-ban’s voice was “low and chesty”. Well, living in the Siberian wilderness must be murder on the sinuses.

Mr. Lyubchenko went on to describe the beast as “about two and a half metres tall, with thick dark brown hair like a bear's - but a lot softer”, adding that it had 18 inch feet.

Unfortunately Lyubchenko didn’t have his phone with him so couldn’t get a picture and, you know, provide any real evidence of any kind - we hate it when that happens. The one time you don’t have your phone and you bump into an abominable snowman named Ta-ban. He’ll remember next time.

The artist didn’t let that setback phase him though and instead drew a picture that looks suspiciously like Chewbacca, on some birch bark, as you do. The beast studied the drawing for some time and then made a mark on it.

Birch

Mr. Lyuchenko says he knows people will think he’s “insane” and said that “all I can say about myself is that I am as normal as one can find, I am physically and mentally healthy, I don't drink or take drugs”. No Andrey, of course not.

Yeti sightings have dropped in recent years and this is believed to be the first one in 2015 but famous Russian Yeti hunter, Igor Burtsev, has recently claimed there might be as many as 30 Yetis strolling around the Kemerovo region.

We’re going to need a lot more birch.
