Bigfoot Discovery Museum curator Mike Rugg made this video reviewing a book by Dmitri Bayanov titled "Bigfoot Research the Russian Version." It's a strange coincidence that it was uploaded just hours before the Russian Bigfoot story surfaced.
Watch Mike talk about the folklore involving the Russian Bigfoot and how Russian Bigfoot Researchers collaborate. Mike says in some ways, the researchers in Russia have been studying Bigfoots longer than most researchers in the U.S. The Russians even have their own field of study called Hominology, the study of unknown hominids.
