London: Three Russians claimed they have seen a group of yetis prowling in a remote region of Siberia.
They, two fishermen and a forestry worker, said they have seen the legendary creatures three times in recent weeks, once mistaking them for people, the Mirror reported.
One said: “We shouted ‘do you need help?’ They rushed away, all in fur, on two legs.”
But another added: “Our binoculars were broken and didn’t let us see them sharply. They walked like people.”
They were spotted in the Kemerovo region, where yeti expert Igor Burtsev claims 30 live.
He will travel there next month to investigate.
