Indian Army on Monday shared Yeti footprints on Twitter and have claimed that the footprints are real. The Tweet by the official Indian Army Twitter reads- ” 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. “
Here is the source tweet:–
Washington Post World-
“India’s army claims it found yeti footprints in Nepal. The world is skeptical. “
BBC World:- ‘Yeti footprints’: Indian army mocked over claim
Reason behind the reveal and reaction to the disbelief:-
Although the footprints were discovered on 9 April, the army made the discovery public only after deciding that it matched earlier theories about the yeti, according to a report in the Times of India.
Reacting to the disbelief on social media, the army said the “evidence” about the yeti had been “photographed ” and “handed over to subject matter experts”.
“So, we thought it prudent [to go public] to excite scientific temper and rekindle the interest.”
The yeti, also known as the Abominable Snowman, is a legendary creature that is said to inhabit the upper reaches of the Himalayas. Stories of people seeing the yeti or its footprints are common in parts of India, Nepal and Bhutan.
More about Yeti from Wikipedia ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yeti ) :- In the folklore of Nepal, the Yeti (/ˈjɛti/) (Nepali: यती, Standard Tibetan: གཡའ་དྲེད) or Abominable Snowman is an ape-like creature taller than an average human, that is said to inhabit the Himalayas, Siberia, Central and East Asia. The names Yeti and Meh-Teh are commonly used by the people indigenous to the region, and are part of their history and mythology. Stories of the Yeti first emerged as a facet of Western popular culture in the 19th century.
The scientific community has generally regarded the Yeti as a legend, given the lack of evidence of its existence. In one genetic study, researchers matched DNA from hair samples found in the Himalaya with a prehistoric bear from the Pleistocene epoch.
