The alleged bigfoot or abominable snowman crossed from right to left in front of the car, some 22 miles from the nearest village.

The “sighting” was 162 miles southeast of Ufa, capital of the region also known as Bashkiria.

“Maybe it is somebody’s joke, but who would do it in such a remote place at night?”

Russian TV channel NTV announced: “Mysterious creature resembling yeti scared tourists in Bashkirian forest.”

One report said “the yeti was covered in white hair”.

Dr Anatoly Yakovlev, a zoology expert at Bashkir State University, dismissed the claims that the legendary yeti had been spotted in his region.

“No single expert – zoologist or paleontologist – has ever found a single bone of a yeti, not even excrements, I am sorry.

“Nothing was ever found or seen.”

He insisted dismissively: “Usually, these sightings are some hallucinations, a product of the imagination.”

Another theory is that the ‘yeti’ was a wild animal poacher seeking to escape from police .

Each year Russia boasts a number of “sightings” of yetis, with the Siberian region of Kemerovo the most common location.
