Scientists say they're 95% sure they've found proof Yetis are real

Last week, we told you about about an international team of scientists working together to find the Yeti. We suppose that this team effort is just the push that Yeti hunters needed, because they now say they're 95 percent sure that the Yeti exists.

According to the Huffington Post:

It didn't take very long for [researchers] to issue a statement on the official Kemerovo website stating they had found "footprints, a probable den and various markers that Yetis mark their territory with."

An English translation (from translate.google.com) of the original Russian news report added that the conference researchers "collected irrefutable evidence of the existence of the Yeti in Mountainous Shoria" (the southern part of Kemerovo).

They concluded that the artifacts gave them 95-percent proof of the existence of Yeti in the Kemerovo region, the press release stated.

The press release makes our suspicious nature rear its skeptical head. The phrase "various markers that Yetis mark their territory with" is logically inconsistent; because we have no proof that Yetis exist, we couldn't possibly know which markers they use.

But we love a good mystery, especially when it concerns the human family tree. It's fun to speculate about a new branch, one that's been hidden for thousands of years.

Russian scientist Anatoly Fokin found hair samples, which are currently being studied in a laboratory. Soon the world will know whether the hairs have been shed from the Yeti's enormous form ... or just a bear.
