"Alexander Bichkov, had lived a semi-feral existence in the woods for 20 years,
terrorising locals and the police if they ventured near him.

A giant at 6ft 7in with a wild straggly beard, the man lived in an old shack and self-made
camps, hunted animals for food and only ventured out of the forest in summer when he
wouldn't leave footprints leading back to where he lived.

Russian police said he descended from a family of criminals who were exiled by Stalin to
the Kostroma region 450 miles east of Moscow, in the 1940s."
