Bigfoot Encounters

in the Kyrgyzia Republic of Central Asia


A frontier guard claims to have found what could be Bigfoot footprints in the Kyrgyzia Republic in Central Asia.

Newspaper Pravda, reports that the footprints were found in the mountainous Aktalinsky district. They were 45cm (17.7 inches) long and 30cm wide (11.8 inches) and are reported to have been clearly visible because they were outlined against the clay bank of a mountain river flowing through the deserted area. Experts say enthusiasts had been searching for a Bigfoot in the neighbouring Pamirs 20 years ago. According to Pravda, they believe the creature might have moved to Kyrgyzia because it was scared by military actions in the mountains of Tajikistan. But it says Kyrgyzia is unlikely to find the money to fund a scientific expedition to discover the true origins of the prints.
