Trekker takes photograph of 'Yeti footprints'

Steve Berry encountered a mysterious set of single-file tracks on a steep mountain slope in Bhutan.

The 66-year-old had been trekking along a remote pass in the Himalayan Mountains when he came across the trail which was situated only yards away from an impassable chasm.

Has there ever been claimed prints that were in such a single line?

It is interesting hiw straight they are. I did have one friend who insisted she saw Bigfoot, she was reliable it was the only time she ever claimed anything odd and she showed me the spot insisting bigfoot ran up what to me looked like an impassable near verticle drop off. Just thought id throw that out there, if we are looking at a very strong sneaky apelike creature it may be a possibility. But those footprints do indeed look more like a goat trail.

Sand People. They travel single file to hide their numbers. Thank you Obi-Wan.

Wait...Himalayas....I mean Snow People. They travel in single file to hide their numbers. Did he report any banthas nearby?

Bigfoot tracks are actually commonly reported as being straight.

"Whereas both bear trails and human trails exhibit some degree of trail width or straddle, this feature is often absent from sasquatch trails because sasquatch tracks are commonly aligned with trail direction in a narrowly linear arrangement rather than in a "staggered" arrangement."

- John Bindernagel, Canadian Biologist and author of The Discovery of the Sasquatch

The problem with snow imprints is that often you can only get from them an approximation of foot shape, but no distinct toe imprints. Same with most moss or grass surface tracks.

And the spacing between the impressions are so short as to indicate (for me) a four-legged animal.

But a goat I'm not so sure of. Maybe, maybe not. See here:

http://idahoptv.org/...s/goatfact2.cfm

To quote from that site:

Goat toes spread giving the track a square shape with a V in front. Goats tend to drag their feet creating a trough between prints. This is particularly noticeable in the snow.

Maybe it's another hiker's prints?

Meldrumatics aside, transient and easily faked evidence proves nothing.

They really do look like animal prints...hikers tend to have two feet and possibly at least one stick. But a one legged hiker would need a stick to hike with.

There sure have.....but animals do not make the claim for them, humans photograph them. :tu:

Yes, that was a notable feature in many of the Wallace hoaxes (that bigfooters including Meldrum, still cling to). These are not hoaxes as much as tracks of a four legged creature though.

It's commonly known that one legged yeti travel by rolling, not hopping.

Was it proven that the Wallace tracks were hoaxed? This BFRO article seems to suggest otherwise:

Nevertheless, it's a notable feature not limited to the Wallace tracks, regardless of the case.

Trekkers are so lame. Now a Trekkie would have photographed the Yeti itself, and got his autograph. :tu:

To the satisfaction of most reasonable people, yes. "Proof" is probably not the best choice of word though, it means different things to different people. For example, you can't prove that you exist with mathematical certainty.

To put it another way. Wallace existed. His stompers existed. He used his stompers. There are all sorts of tracks that bear remarkable similarity to said stompers (such as some of the more famous bigfoot tracks).

0 bigfoots are known to exist. As such, no one knows anything about their foot morphology, if they do exist. We do know however, of many hoaxes and have very many good reasons to accept that Wallace was responsible for certain ones.

This BFRO article seems to suggest otherwise:

http://www.bfro.net/news/wallace.asp

That's an extremely poor article. Without arguing over such nonsense (unless you really wish to), these articles seem quite worthwhile. The first couple actually offer some hope from a sceptic's pov that there is some objectivity being practiced within this field, as they are written by a cryptozoologist who seems to believe in bigfoot. The last one (by a historian) seems reasonable also, not sure what point the is making re "Paluxy River" (a creationist?), but apart from that, seems quite good. It explains much of the nonsense claims bigfooters make re Wallace fakes.

Not denying that, only that they are a feature associated with Wallace tracks.
