    DISCOVERY CHANNEL HEADS DEEP INTO SIBERIA IN SEARCH OF RUSSIAN YETI ON SUNDAY, JUNE 1

    Special airs Sunday, June 1 at 9PM ET/PT

    (Los Angeles, Calif.) - "On February 2, 1959, nine college students hiked up the icy slopes of the Ural Mountains in the heart of Russia but never made it out alive. Investigators have never been able to give a definitive answer behind who - or what - caused the bizarre crime scene. Fifty-five years later, American explorer Mike Libecki reinvestigates the mystery - known as The Dyatlov Pass incident - but what he uncovers is truly horrifying.

    RUSSIAN YETI: THE KILLER LIVES, a 2-hour special airing Sunday, June 1 at 9 PM ET/PT on the Discovery Channel, follows Mike as he traces the clues and gathers compelling evidence that suggests the students' deaths could be the work of a creature thought only to exist in folklore.

    Based on diary accounts, forensic evidence and files that have just recently been released, Mike pieces together the graphic stories in search of what really happened that evening. According to the investigators at the time, the demise of the group was due to a "compelling natural force." The students' slashed tent was discovered first with most of their clothing and equipment still inside. Next, the students' bodies were found scattered across the campsite in three distinct groups, some partially naked and with strange injuries including crushed ribs, a fractured skull, and one hiker mutilated with her eyes gouged out and tongue removed.

    The mysterious scene left more questions than answers. Why was the tent slashed from the inside? Why would the victims leave their clothing behind in subzero weather? Could it have been a government top secret weapon that killed them? Or an indigenous local tribe that lashed out for trespassing on their land? But perhaps most strange of all, why did the Soviet government suppress the autopsy and other reports for 30 years?

    Mike first heard about the Dyatlov Pass incident on a climbing expedition in 2011 and since then has become obsessed with the case. "I've spent a lot of time alone in the mountains and have had my share of near-death experiences," he said. "I know if I went missing, I'd want my family to know what happened to me."

    Determined to find answers, Mike hires Russian translator Maria Klenokova to join him. Together, they set out to one of the most remote and inhospitable places on Earth. However, nothing prepared them for what they were about to discover. Following the trail of evidence, Mike finds proof that the hikers were not alone - a photograph, taken by one of the hikers a day before they died that suggests that they encountered a Yeti. But just how far will they go to find the answers?

    Are you posting this as evidence that so called documentaries can be total bullshit?

    Here's a bit of logical thought I just came up with: bigfoot, yeti, etc. are always said to be reclusive. They take great care to go unnoticed by us, and are intelligent enough to remain elusive. The other thing that is always said is that they smell awful.How can both of these statement be true? Wouldn't the yeti consider if s/he really wanted to go unnoticed, why then roll around in the snow twice or three times a week, or bathe in a mountain stream. I'm guessing that yeti also try to avoid bears, which have a sense of smell far keener than bloodhounds.

    My conclusion: if these guys existed they'd be wandering into remote villages more often and nicking soap.

    The DPI was surely one of the other mongrel historical elements that contributed to the conception of "Siberia". An eleven episode pseudo-reality show that aired last summer.

    Donnie Eichar's “Dead Mountain” Offers A Novel Explanation For One Of The Great Unsolved Mysteries Of Russian History

    Potential explanations include: Murder at the hands of the military, escaped prisoner attack, avalanche, and death by nuclear waste. But it wasn’t until earlier this year that Donnie Eichar, an American film and television producer from Malibu, California, presented a new and entirely plausible scientific explanation for what happened. Eichar spent four years investigating the case and took two trips to Russia [...] In the end, the author presents a thoroughly modern explanation for the hikers’ seemingly irrational behavior and subsequent deaths, one which he developed in conjunction with Dr. Alfred J. Bedard, Jr., and other researchers at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in Boulder, Colorado. While Eichar prefers to save the details for those who read the book, suffice to say that his theory involves a particular type of repetitive wind event (one that could be produced by the topography of Dead Mountain), which in turn might have triggered panic-inducing infrasound.

    I remember coming across that reality show one night. I had no idea it was fake, but in 5 minutes of watching I realized that the scripted acting was so poor it HAD to be fake! You just can't fake bad acting like that.

    Infrasound eh? Well that would explain the tent ripped from the inside I guess. It will be interesting to see how this is all explained by a psychopathic Yeti.

    Well, I actually watched the show tonight. Suffice it to say that even though a few bits of proof were presented, I'm still a LONG way from being convinced.

    Yes, finally adds a species of the Hate Plague or Mind Virus trope to the DPI explanatory fray (if such wasn't already represented in the existing jumble of theories). Or, in the context of the ST obsession of any Sheldon Cooper / Abed Nadir sect members lurking about: The communal madness of Tholian Web fame was bound to be introduced sooner or later.

    I watched the show and was pretty impressed with what they came up with. Taken all together, the huge footprints in the snow, the cause of death of the campers, the written journal entry found in the tent, their last photo of a Yeti coming their way, and eyewitness accounts of the same creature all over the Ural Mountains area, they presented a pretty compelling case. Can't wait till they finally find one of these creatures. It's going to be the find of the century.

    I will bet you a dollar that they do not find one of these creatures (it is not a fair bet since they obviously do not really exist).

    Dyatlov accident was a result of ballistic missile test gone wrong, has nothing to do with Yeti. period.

    It's just an unshaven Putin on one of his manly hunting with his bare hands jaunts into the mountains.

    The photo in the original post is blurry to be sure, but isn't it clear enough that the creature's legs are a darker tone - which suggests that it is really just a man in trousers? Becaue the head is darker, I asume he's wearing a woolen ski mask. His gait and the length of his arms also suggest a man, not a yeti.

    Nope. The bodies were found a mile from the torn tent. They were partially unclothed, without shoes, with smashed skulls and broken ribs and one with eyes and tongue missing. A missile accident just doesn't fit in here.

    I don't buy the rather silly missile story either. However, the 'monster' could have just been something simple like a large bear.
