tracks on banks of lower currents of
beginning of April, 2012 I casually saw at YOUTUBE a video named "Tracks
of the yeti on Yamal". It was known already for
me that there were encounterings and observations of hairy
hominoids in Taiga and along the lower northern part of
After Pushkarev's tragedy no wide researches of hominoids there were carried out. Therefore I with great interest have got acquainted with new facts in the video provided by local TV company TRV-MUJI, located in Muji (Muzhi) settlement on the west bank of Ob river.
The link to the video is
It may be also downloaded from site of the TV company
Here we can see some still shots from this film.
The title of the video shows that the finding had place in September of 2011.
This occurred near small
settlement named Akanleim in
The local dweller Pavel Sandrin narrates about the tracks here and elsewhere. Behind his a wet flat bank where the tracks were found is seen.

One more of deep tracks, there were a lot of them on the bank.
There were tracks made by different creatures, small and big (children and adults?).

After I became acquainted with this video and examining some stills I was convinced that the tracks are original. Yet no metric measurements were provided. In short, the big toes on creature 's feet can bend independently from other four toes and drop deep into wet ground to keep steady movement. Feet of human are not capable to bent in such a way.
So, I hastened to contact the producer and editor of this video. My first letter to Edward Sekretov remained without any answer. Then I addressed with letter to the heads of the TV company. This was also disregarded. Considering that the findings have significant scientific value, I have no doubts that it is necessary to renew researches in this area. Below I convey my somewhat cut letters to producers of the movie.
It was became known in September, 2011, about findings of bare feet similar to human's, and they are the most new observations known to us now.

barefoot tracks on bank of
No answer followed. So I send you a copy of that letters in hope to receive your response because this subject which was raised into view by your movie seems to be very important for science.
Yours faithfully, Michael Trachtengerts
Dear Edward Sekretov,
is Michael Trachtengerts, I live in
operating seminar on this problem.. Probably, you saw sometime activists of the seminar on TV shows or elsewhere.

It would be desirable to know your view on this problem.

I can explain such neglecting pose of journalists mainly by modes in modern mass media. Usually they are interested only with sensations of the moment. In this case ― the sensation was shot, the subject passed away, forgotten and should not be remembered any more.
It is good in any case, that the video remained available till now.
