Indian army reports 'Yeti' footprints discovery

An Indian military mountaineering expedition team photographed the mystery footprints in the Himalayas.
Discovered at the army's Makalu Base Camp in Makalu-Barun National Park, the footprints reportedly measured 32x15 inches and were set deep in to the snow over a sizable distance.

Several photographs of the prints have since been uploaded on to the Indian army's Twitter feed.

"For the first time, an #IndianArmy Moutaineering Expedition Team has sited Mysterious Footprints of mythical beast 'Yeti' measuring 32x15 inches close to Makalu Base Camp on 09 April 2019," the post reads. "This elusive snowman has only been sighted at Makalu-Barun National Park in the past."
The Yeti - or 'Abominable Snowman' - is one of the world's most enduring cryptozoological mysteries.

Often described as a tall, bipedal, ape-like creature similar to North America's Bigfoot, the Yeti is said to roam the forests and mountains of the Himalayas and is a major part of the culture and spiritual beliefs of remote communities in Nepal and Tibet.

Whether these particular footprints are the genuine article however remains unclear.

Especially considering they had guns. Honestly, I feel compelled once again to say that if I had no first hand experience with the phenomenon I would not believe, but I have so I do. Thatís all Iím going to say Iím not trying to convince anyone of anything.

the pictures in this thread are odd, like walking a line no sway, perhaps a rabbit hopping then a little melt and refreeze, we have poor unknown prints the are just that i see nothing to make a jump to yeti from this, unless thats what you want to believe.

If those are 3 foot long tracks, then that's like a 8 foot stride. Probably put a humanoid yeti at like 15 feet tall. Has yeti ever been suggested at so tall? That seems a long jump even for a rabbit. Maybe a fox? Or large-ish predator?

Did anybody think of seeing where the tracks led? no that would be too easy!

The Size of the tracks cant be taken seriously, any track will triple in size as snow melts within it. And maybe it was a snow leopard in jumping stride. They can manage amazing height and length jumps when spotting a prey. Id say a snow leopard might have left a tail track but im not sure, they even might keep their tail in the air as a balance organ like other big cats..
