In something that sounds like the setup to a 1980s Saturday morning cartoon, an English-language edition of a Russian website posts:

An expedition that was looking for the mysterious yeti in Mountain Shoria – a faraway region in the Siberian taiga - has recently returned home. The expedition’s members claim that the forest fires of this extremely hot summer made Altai yetis move to the Kuzbass region, where they have started a “war” with local bears.

I warn you, however, this site is (like another, more famous Russian news source) is highly tabloid and should be read more for fun that informational value. Read more here.

However, it should be noted that the expedition leader feels he was dishonestly misquoted and that some statements were entirely fabricated by a reporter to whom he never even spoke. Read about this controversy at
