Russia’s Almasty (Bigfoot)!

The ‘Almasty’ is Russia’s very own Bigfoot. It has been written about for over 300 years, and Russia’s Almasty hunters claim there have been over 10,000 encounters over the years. The big theory in Russia is that it’s a surviving hominid, possibly even a Neanderthal. Mark Evans travels to Russia and investigates one of the highest profile Bigfoot stories in the world: the tale of Zana, the so-called Wildwoman: a living Almasty said to have been found in the remote Caucasus in the 1870s. She was alleged to have had four children by her captors over the years. Almasty hunters have tracked down her descendants and Bryan Sykes uses cutting-edge tests to analyze their DNA and test the Neanderthal theory about Zana.
