PICS: Indian army claims it has found Yeti footprints

We're not convinced.

The Additional Directorate General of Public Information of the Indian Ministry of Defence has shared a photo of social media that it claims might depict the footprints of the mythical Yeti.

The Yeti is a myth (or... is it?) that originated in Nepal, which neighbours India, and it is said to be an ape-like creature that is much larger than the average human. In other cultures it is known as the Abominable Snowman, or Bigfoot. It is thought that it lives in the Himalayan mountains and in the surrounding regions.

Yesterday, the Indian Army shared a photos of what could be Yeti footprints on Twitter, alongside the caption: "For the first time, an #IndianArmy Moutaineering Expedition Team has sited Mysterious Footprints of mythical beast 'Yeti' measuring 32x15 inches close to Makalu Base Camp on 09 April 2019.

"This elusive snowman has only been sighted at Makalu-Barun National Park in the past."

According to the Times of India, the army has said that all evidence has been "photographed and will be handed over to subject matter experts." The Times has further confirmed that the army has faced "derision" for its claim.
