The Tatra Mountains sightings

The Tatra Mountains run along the border between Poland and Slovakia, forming a natural border. It is the highest mountain range in the Carpathians but should not become confused with the Low Tatras which are located south of the  Mountains in Slovakia. Also called Tatras or Tatra, they cover an area of 303 square miles. This provides a lot of territory for the creature they call yeti. We would call them sasquatch or bigfoot. Let's take a look at two encounter reports that come from the Tatra Mountains.

The first report comes from Piotr Kowalski. The 27 year old was apparently hiking in the Tatra and had started filming a mountain goat when he was distracted by a large upright figure among the rocks. The hairy figure came out from behind some rocks, walking on two legs.

"I saw the huge ape-like form hiding behind the rocks. When I saw it, it was like being struck with a thunderbolt," said Kowalski.

The event is said to have occurred in 2009.

Take a look at the video :

For those who like to listen to other's takes on videos, I also located Bigfoot Tony's breakdown. One thing I like that he did was to take the frames that are focused on the figure and put them together for review. What I am puzzled by is his consternation when the figure appears to be bending over in part of the video. He calls it "irregular" and "unnatural". I guess Bigfoot Tony has never watched either a human or a sasquatch bending over searching the ground and rocks for something.  Both are known to do it. But maybe I misunderstood him.

Anyhow, here is Bigfoot Tony's breakdown :

As it happens sometimes, I have had new information shared by a reader which updates the above video. Bigfoot Tony released an update of his analysis of Kowalski's yeti video. There is the claim that Kowalski either used some the footage to make a fake or hoax video, or he mistakenly filmed the actor as the commercial was being filmed, not knowing it was an actor.

Both options are possible. I did notice in the submitted "commercial" video that the figure was filmed from a different angle and height and that the figure does not seem to move in the exact movements as Kowalski's figure. [As Bigfoot Tony also remarks.]  This can be explained in a couple of different ways. If Kowalski was not officially part of the commercial filming process, he would certainly be in a different position than the film crew. Or it could be that the commercial film crew set out to recreate the Kowalski video. Kowalski's video was posted on August 31, 2009. The commercial was posted on September 12, 2009. I am not in possession of any original air date for the alleged commercial. I made a search to try to find the commercial but so far have not found anything online about it. I will continue to look.

Anyhow, below is the link to Bigfoot Tony's update on the Kowalski film.

The second Tatra Mountain video was titled "Yeti filmed by Couple camping in the Tatra Mountains, Poland". It appears to show a yeti watching a young woman wading in a stream.

Justyna Folger (age 19) first stood on some rocks at the edge of the stream then started wading in the water as her friend filmed her. Suddenly the friend sees the figure on the far side of the bank. He cries out and tries to zoom in on the trees, barely catching the watcher as it stands up and disappears into the trees.

"At first I thought it was a bear, But then the creature straightened up on both legs and ran away," claimed Folger.

Ernst Probst, author, believes that these creatures are a relic of primeval times which has survived in hidden forest areas. "From fossils we know that these apemen could sometimes be up to three metres tall." [9 to 10 feet]. The National Parks administration was said to be alarmed and was investigating the case. Park Ranger Edward Wlazlo explained : "If there is something out there, we will find it."

A search finally turned up the video. Watch closely. At the end of the video, you can just make out a brown blur as it stands and runs.
