|Yeti/Bigfoot and UFOs. What is the connection?|

Scientists from a number of countries (Russia, the U.S., Canada, Sweden, Estonia, Mongolia and China), will conference this week (Thursday - Saturday), to evaluate the existence of the legendary creatures known as the Yeti.
From this conference, a team of scientist will be sent out to scour the Kemerovo and neighboring Altai region, about 1,988 miles (3,200 kilometers) east of Moscow, in search of the elusive "ape-man".
The scientists will examine evidence of the existence of the creatures, such as twisted branches, footprints of up to 14 inches (35 centimeters) and even basic twig huts. Evidence will also include both audio recordings and photographs and it is even alleged by local game wardens, that evidence was obtained by a motion-triggered camera in a cave 50 miles from Tashtagol.
Though there had been a much smaller expedition in September, this new expedition will be the first of its kind since 1958, when scientists from the Soviet Academy of Sciences searched Western Siberia, in an attempt to catch a Yeti.
Igor Burtsev, head of the Moscow-based International Center of Hominology, recently said, "When Homo sapiens started populating the world, it viciously exterminated its closest relative in the hominid family, Homo neanderthalensis. Some of the Neanderthals, however, may have survived to this day in some mountainous wooded habitats that are more or less off limits to their arch foes."
Will these scientists find unequivocal proof of the existence of the Yeti? I wish them luck, as it seems researchers here in our own back yard can't seem to find proof of the existence of our own Bigfoot (relative of the Yeti?), or proof positive evidence of Extraterrestrial visits from outer space.
If the scientists and researchers do find proof of Yeti, Bigfoot, aliens, or any of the many other cryptids right here on our own planet, how is that going to impact our lives? Are they all connected in some way? I'm left to wonder... and so are many others.
