The Express Newspaper Stated AN ARTIST is claiming to have seen a mythical yeti for long enough to sketch the “giant primate”. Russian Andrey Lyubchenko says people will think he is “insane”, but insists he saw the legendary beast which was happy for him to draw its portrait. He claims the brief encounter was in the mountains of the Kemerovo area of Siberia, in Russia, and he telepathically communicated with the hairy mythological mammal.
Mr Lyubchenko stated : “It happened so unexpectedly and so fast that I had no time to get scared. “There was a clear feeling that this was a thinking creature, I felt he was trying to talk to me. “The Yeti was about two and a half metres tall, with thick dark brown hair like a bear’s – but a lot softer. “He was holding a wooden stick, with bits of hair wrapped around it. “But the main thing was his eyes, they were just like light-coloured human eyes.”
The mountain area is well known for allegedly having a population of the legendary beasts also called the abominable snowman. Mr Lyubchenko says the alleged sighting was soon after dawn on July 27 in a remote spot in mountainous Kemerovo region, famed for claims that it has a Yeti population. He added: “I went out onto a small open patch, and there I felt the Yeti’s presence. “I turned back and saw him standing up, deeper in the woods, not going away and trying to communicate. “The creature’s body shape was male, and his feet were 18 inches long. “His body was very toned, with lots of visible muscles. “His face was expressive, too, just like his eyes.”
Mr Lyubchenko, who is said to be respected for his artwork locally, claimed to somehow communicate with monster. He said: “I can’t describe or understand how we spoke, because – well because it sounds unbelievable. “It felt like we heard each other’s thoughts, as if it was telepathy. “There was only one word that the Yeti actually said when I asked his name. “His voice was low and chesty, and the name sounded as if somebody hit a tambourine twice ‘Ta-ban’.” He said he was without a phone or camera, so sketched the creature on a piece of bark. He added: “I made a drawing of the Yeti and showed him. “The Yeti studied it really carefully for a while, and then drew a symbol next to my drawing. “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.”
This is said to be the first yeti sighting of 2015 in the region. Sightings had dropped since 2011 when Russian Yeti hunter Igor Burtsev said up to 30 roamed the area and they were “on the brink of finding one.”
Being privy to Igor’s research I would have to strongly disagree with the statement that the reports have died off, I know a number of habituations happening in the area, and a one point in 2017 the Russian President himself saw a “family of yetis” whilst out in the region.
