Disputes, if any, subject to jurisdiction in New Delhi

New Delhi: There has been a lot of speculation about the presence of the “abominable snowman” Yeti for a long time. Many people from across the world have claimed they saw the snowman Yeti. Myths about the creature abound in societies based in hills and mountains and also among mountaineers and adventurers.

However, no concrete evidence has yet emerged about its existence. Now, the Indian Army has made a big claim about the presence of snowman Yeti.

The Indian Army has presented ‘evidence’ of the presence of the snowman, which is a first for any agency. The Army ran into huge footprints in the Himalayas, which it has shared on Twitter.

The pictures show big footprints on ice. It is believed that these marks could be of nothing other than feet of a yeti. The Army has shared a total of three pictures.

The Army said in the tweet, “For the first time, an #IndianArmy Mountaineering 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.”

Yeti is (or could be) the most mysterious creature living in the Himalayas. The closest to credible claims of its presence mostly came from the Himalayan region of Nepal and Tibet, but scientists have dismissed all the claims.

In the folklore of Nepal, the yeti or Abominable Snowman is an ape-like creature taller than an average human, which 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.
Scientists say such footprints could be of the chu-teh, a langur monkey, a brown bear (Ursus arctos), endangered Himalayan brown bear, Ursus arctos isabellinus, or Tibetan blue bear, U. a. pruinosus, the Asiatic black bear.

The universities of Oxford and Lausanne concluded in a 2013 study that, barring hoaxes of planted samples or contamination, bears in these regions may have been taken for yeti.
