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.
For the first time, an #IndianArmy Moutaineering Expedition Team has sited Mysterious Footprints of mythical beast 'Yeti' measuring 32×15 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. pic.twitter.com/AMD4MYIgV7

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.
