How Twitter is Reacting to Indian Army's Claim of Finding Yeti Footprints


"For the first time, an #IndianArmy Moutaineering Expedition Team has sited Mysterious Footprints of mythical beast 'Yeti, '" the army's official account tweeted to its almost 6 million followers.

The Indian Army's images of "yeti" footprints have drawn interest across the globe on Twitter, but unfortunately for fans of the paranormal, eagle-eyed viewers have spotted something rather odd about the pattern of marks in the snow.

Images published on the army's social media page show deep-set footprints at the army's Makalu Base Camp, deep in the Himalayas.

Daniel C. Taylor, who has extensively explored the Makalu-Barun area and written a book on the mystery of the Yeti, said the footprints were likely those of bears. But please, you are Indian, dont call Yeti as beast.

The taller-than-human snowman that has been known for residing in the Himalayas was just spotted by the Indian Army.

The findings of the Indian Army left many Twitter users puzzled and amused. Taking to Twitter, the Army shared the images of the footprint, measuring 32x15 inches.

Plus, a three-hour movie may not have as much rewatchability as the other movies in the $2 billion arena. Also, incidentally, Disney owns both Marvel and Lucasfilm, so yay Disney.

Mount Makalu, where the Indian Army took the photographs, is one of the highest mountains in the world.

Trekkers and inhabitants of the Himalayan region have often cited the presence of a large furry creature in the vicinity.

A similar claim made in 2014 created quite a flutter too where two Yeti fur samples, from Bhutan and northern India, were allegedly collected, suggesting the presence of a hybrid monster. Many were wondering why only one foot is seen in the picture, and some even referred to the Tintin cartoons. The paw of the "Yeti" kept in a local monastery came from a black bear. Though for decades there have been purported sightings of the Yeti and its North-American equivalent "Bigfoot" or "Sasquatch", or at least their monstrous footprints, there has been little scientific evidence to back the claims.

The storm on social media was so great that the army issued a statement to the Times of India newspaper.

"So, we thought it prudent [to go public] to excite scientific temper and rekindle the interest".

The pictures, however, only show the print of only one foot.
