Russian Bigfoot remains elusive.

Russian Heavyweight Boxing Legend 'Fails To Find' Bigfoot In Siberian Cave
Former Russian heavyweight boxing champion Nikolai Valuyev has failed to track down a yeti in Siberia’s Kemerovo region despite tip offs and "traces" leading to a cave in the mountains, local authorities said on September 16.Known as the “Beast from the East,” Valuyev, who is nearly seven-feet tall (2.13 m), set off on a two-day trip to find bigfoot on September 14 after his expedition was blessed in a ritual led by a shaman to enlist the help of friendly forest spirits.The two-time world heavyweight champion, who hung up his gloves in 2008, was accompanied by journalists from 16 Russian media outlets on the trip to find the local “Kuzbass” yeti, which was last reported to have been seen in 2009.“Valuyev did not manage to meet the yeti itself but on the way he discovered ‘traces’ such as broken tree branches," a local government press release said on September 16. "By the time they reached the Azass cave, the expedition saw gigantic footprints, similar to a human’s.”According to the government press release, Valuyev, 38, spoke to local hunters who have sighted the beast, but they warned that the Kuzbass yeti “doesn’t like to appear before humans.”Local authorities told Russian media in February 2009 that there had been a sighting of a “hairy humanoid creature that was 1.5-2 meters tall."
