Features

30 Snowman's Land (Cover Story)
For many years, research into Russia's hariy homidis was frowned upon by the Soviet authorities, but now all that has changed, as Edward Crabtree reports from the Russian Federation, where a new appetite for the unexplained has seen the yeti's rehabilitation.

35 Watching the Fur Fly
Are reports of Siberian Snowmen all that they seem, asks veteran Bigfooter Loren Coleman - and what should we make of recent claims of giant footprints, Yeti hairs and DNA sequencing coming out of Russia?

36 The Wild Dog of Ennerdale
In 1810, something deadly arrived in the Lake District and started killing sheep in a gruesome fashion. Crispin Andrews suggests that the fells were being stalked by a creature that was hungry and a long way from home...

42 Cemetery Dogs
Greyfriars Bobby was by no means the only canine with a reputation for keeping vigil at his dead master's grave. Jan Bondeson looks at the forgotten career of Medor, the Dog of the Louvre, and other cemetery dogs.
