The army, sharing images on its official Twitter handle, said a mountaineering expedition team had found the Yeti’s “mysterious footprints measuring 32X15 inches”. The tweet was meant to “excite scientific temper,” said sources as the Yeti claim generated curiosity.
The army said it discovered the footprints on April 9 at Makalu Base Camp in Nepal. It also claimed that the “elusive snowman” has also only been sighted nearby at Makalu-Barun National Park.
In the images, the prints appear to be of a single foot.
Army sources told NDTV that the story is based on “physical proof of on-the-spot narration”, photos and videos. “We got the inputs about 10 days back and yet we held on to it,” they said, promising that the “photos and videos may surprise you”.
The photographic evidence matches earlier theories, the army claims.
“We tweeted as we thought prudent to excite scientific temper and rekindle the interest. Some of us who reject the story surely shall have a definite answer to the evidences. As they say nature, history and science never write their final story.”
