DHARAMSALA, HIMACHAL PRADESH, India – Large footprints discovered by troops in the Himalayas have renewed speculation that they’re evidence of a yeti or abominable snowman.

The Indian Army tweeted images of footprints that Army Rangers claimed to measure 32 inches long by 15 inches wide. The photos were taken several weeks ago, according to the Army’s Twitter account.

The massive footprints were found on the Nepal-China border on the Makalu Mountain. Many climbers have searched for the Yeti, but no evidence of an animal has been found.

Research by a British scientist in 2013 concluded that sightings of the beast might have been a sub-species of a brown bear.
