Are Twisted Trees Proof of Bigfoot?

The discovery in Siberia of tree branches twisted together could be proof that Bigfoot really does exist, according to biologists.

Bigfoot fanatics claim that a "nest" of trees found in the Kemerovo region is evidence that the creature was roaming the region and building homes in the same way that orang-utans or gorillas would.

Bigfoot experts from Russia, Canada, the US and Sweden recently met at a conference in Moscow before mounting an expedition to Siberia, where stories of the "Wildman" abound, the Sun reports.

John Bindernagel, a biologist who took part in the expedition, told the paper: "We didn't feel like the trees we saw in Siberia had been done by a man or another mammal.

"Twisted trees like this have also been observed in North America and they could fit with the theory that Bigfoot makes nests.

"The nests we have looked at are built around trees twisted together into an arch shape."

Bigfoot, also known as sasquatch, is an apelike cryptid that purportedly inhabits forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region of North America.

Sightings of similar creatures have been reported in Russia, France and the Himalayas, where it is known as the Yeti.

But scientists have in the past discounted the existence of Bigfoot and consider it to be a combination of folklore, misidentification, and hoax, rather than a living animal, in part because of the large numbers thought necessary to maintain a breeding population.
