The footsteps were found near the village Shogorka, 35 kilometers off the Kargapor settlement in the Pinezh region of the Arkhangelsk Oblast by a local hunter Leonid Skomorokhov. He found 30 footsteps within the 24-meters area. The length of each footstep is 31 centimeter, it looks like a paw with a long triangular claw on the tip of each finger. The footstep length is more than 1.5 meters.
According to director of the Northern branch of the All-Russian research institute of hunting economy and fur farming Vladimir Korepanov, some of the footsteps belong to a bear, and some of them remind those of Primates and Ursidae simultaneously. Local residents have already made molds of the footprints.
Local bear species have been excluded. The tracks are just to long and narrow. But these imprints look strange, having a length and shape similar to that of a human but with extremely triangular clawmarks (unknown in primates). Of course, these may be fakes....but the information gathered so far mainly discounts trickery.
