Bigfoot is described in reports as a large hairy ape-like creature, ranging between 6–10 feet (2–3 m) tall, weighing in excess of 500 pounds (230 kg), and covered in dark brown or dark reddish hair.
Alleged witnesses have described large eyes, a pronounced brow ridge, and a large, low-set forehead; the top of the head has been described as rounded and crested, similar to the sagittal crest of the male gorilla. Bigfoot is commonly reported to have a strong, unpleasant smell by those who claim to have encountered it. The enormous footprints for which it is named have been as large as 24 inches (60 cm) long and 8 inches (20 cm) wide. While most casts have five toes—like all known apes—some casts of alleged Bigfoot tracks have had numbers ranging from two to six. Some have also contained claw marks, making it likely that a portion came from known animals such as bears, which have five toes and claws.

Officials in west Siberia plan to launch a new scientific institute dedicated to studying yetis after a spate of reported sightings in remote areas.
As the AFP is reporting, the region will host an international conference on the ape-like, mythological creatures later this year.
"Organizing an institute or a scientific center would be a logical continuation of research into the yeti," the administration in Kemerovo, a Russian coal-mining region, in western Siberia said, according to the AFP. "The town of Tashtagol will host an international conference with leading experts into hominids. Based on its results, we will take a decision on opening a scientific research institute to study the yeti."
Kemerovo officials cited researcher Igor Burtsev as saying that around 30 Russian scientists are studying yetis -- also known as "Abominable Snowmen" -- and could work together at the planned institute, the Telegraph reports. "We think that the yeti is a separate branch of human evolution. It lives in harmony with nature," he said.
According to Yahoo! News, Burtsev told Russian newspaper Itar Press he believed he spotted evidence of a yeti after an expedition last year. "I saw markers [half-broken branches] the creature uses to mark the controlled territory," he is quoted as saying. "In the woods I have found several artifacts to confirm my theory. I plan to find the Bigfoot's shelter and even try to contact the creature."
Fifteen other witnesses have claimed to have spotted yeti in one remote Siberian area last year, the Daily Mail is reporting.

What is it..?
"Sasquatch" often conjures thoughts of an aggressive monster, most people, of which, do not believe is real. They "ARE" real, and "ARE" a living model for science evasion. This animal has been historically reported and witnessed in every State and Canadian Province since the time Europeans arrived on the American continent ,Canada , and well before by First Nations. They leave behind compelling evidence for their existence, and much of the evidence cannot be faked..
On October 20th, 1967, Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin were looking for these animals in the Bluff Creek Riverbed in Northern California on horseback. Although their intent was to gather footage of the Sasquatch habitat (attempting to show film producers a merited effort), they really did not expect to actually see one. Suddenly the horses reared, bucking Patterson off, and he was able to grab the 16mm camera from the saddle bag just in time. Gimlin held his Horse firm, and watched in awe as the sequence unfolded. Patterson thought that the Horse reared because of a Cougar or Bear, and wanted to film it. They were both confronted with a large, dark, hair-covered body in the riverbed. With only a little more than a minutes time left of film, Patterson grabbed the camera, and as he did, the animal stood up, and began to walk away. Patterson gained his feet and started chasing the animal, while Gimlin later reflected a major concern for Patterson's safety, although too shocked to make any comment. Patterson ran and then shot what has become the most compelling film evidence ever gathered of a live Sasquatch, walking away from him. The film is shaky in the beginning, but becomes more stable toward the end where the animal can be clearly seen and identified.
Since that day the film has been scientifically analysed by several experts, including those residing in Russia, and most have found that the film obviously shows that the animal is not a man in a suit. They have studied each frame individually and found that there is no zipper, and the "suit" would have been impossible to create in 1967. They have actually seen muscle movement in each frame ... another reason to note that the animal is real. Suits do not show muscle movement. In addition, the walk of the animal is totally unlike a human gait. Estimates based on intense study of each frame show the animal was about 7 feet and 1 inch tall. My personal estimate, based on study at Rene Dahinden's residence in 1980, indicated 6 feet and 11 inches tall. My estimates did not compensate for the bent-over stride, and it may be that this animal would measure over 7 feet and 5 inches if standing totally erect. The weight estimates from the experts indicate from 800 to 1,000 pounds.
I will add here that I was allowed to view and examine, frame by frame, the Patterson Film in September, 1980 by the late Rene Dahinden. Rene owned all rights to the film, although some were always considered "Public Domain". I stayed with Rene for three days, and he showed me most likely more than he ever showed anyone else after that day. I saw so many aspects of the Patterson Film that I believe very few people have ever seen since. I wish the world could see what I saw, including the plaster casts he made only a day after the film, and the comparison of those feet to what is shown in the film.
Sasquatch footprints are a lot more common than most people realize. Many go unreported because the witnesses do not think anyone will believe them, or they think someone hoaxed the prints. Above is a typical Sasquatch footprint found near Bluff Creek in Northern California ... an area where hundreds of similar prints have been discovered. Although this track is old, it is similar to those found today, on a day by day basis, in all States throughout North America.
Sasquatch footprints are probably the most compelling piece of evidence for a large bipedal hominid's existence. Although some are faked on occasion, most a

**By Burns Lake News**
Two missionaries with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints received a scare on the night of Dec. 2 when they saw what they think was a set of sasquatch footprints outside of their Burns Lake home.
Tyler Beck and Brad Blazzard are in B.C. for two years, rotating in different communities throughout the Smithers and Burns Lake area for the past seven months.
“The first thing we thought was that someone was playing a trick on us,” Beck said. “But we don’t know anyone our age who would do that and our house in on the Southside, so pretty much in the middle of nowhere.”
The footprints, which Beck said was about 20 inches long is right in front of Beck’s porch, leading to the path where the pair keep their wood shed.
Beck said prior to finding the footprint at 9:30 p.m., on the night of Dec. 2, he didn’t really believe in the possibility of bigfoot.
“I still don’t know what to think,” he said. “I have heard some pretty ridiculous things about bigfoot but now I am leaning toward the edge of thinking it may be possible.”
The house sits in front of a lake and Beck said in the four-and-a-half months he has been there, he has seen all manner of coyotes and wolves. This is the first time he has seen any sign of the fabled creature.

They're still not sure what to do with it, but a family living on the Grassy Narrows First Nation in northwestern Ontario has a plaster cast of a "huge" footprint from what they think is a sasquatch-like creature.
"It's got six toes and a giant heel," said 21-year-old Judy Fobister, whose father went out and took the imprint.
"He brought it home and he showed us," she said. "I couldn't believe it. I was shocked that there is actually something out there."
The footprint measures about 38 centimetres long by about 15 centimetres wide and nicely fills a large pizza box, which is where the plaster cast is now safely stowed.
"The way toes are, it looks kind of weird," Fobister said Tuesday. "They don't look normal. They're huge. The big toe is huge. If you put three of your middle fingers together, that's how wide and how long the big toe is."
Fobister said her aunt, Helen Fobister, and her grandmother, Agnes Fisher, were driving back roads of the reserve on their way to pick blueberries. They told family members that they saw a tall, slender, black creature just a few metres ahead of them.
"They said they were pretty close," Fobister said. They said it was really tall, like about eight feet tall."
The creature disappeared into the bush, but members of the family went back to look around. Fobister said that's when her father found the footprint and took the plaster cast.
She says she's grown up hearing stories about a sasquatch-like creature in the area. Now she "kind of" believes them, but would still like to see more proof that the fabled creature, which is sometimes called bigfoot, really exists.
Grassy Narrows is about 80 kilometres north of Kenora, Ont.
