When a Sensational Indian Army Discovery of Large YETI Footprints Revived Interest in The Abominable Snowman
8Other reports by researchers
Himalayan conservationist Daniel C Taylor along with Himalayan Natural Historian Robert Fleming also organized a yeti expedition in the same region of the Barun Valley. They too discovered large footprints similar to those found by the Indian Army. While several monasteries claim to have relics of the beast, Oxford Professor Bryan Sykes feels “likely explanation for the ape-man myth ‘is that the animal is a hybrid of polar bears and brown bears”.
9The tweet of the yeti by the Indian army
The Indian army tweet about the Yei footprints became the number two trending post at the time. Those skeptical about the claims expressed disappointment at the Indian army for being gullible and believing in stories and Legends. What is surprising however is that those who point out their fingers in disbelief would readily believe the legends and myths of their own religions or cultures be they in Asia or abroad.
10The discovery has revived interest in the Yeti
Reactions to the tweet also prompted the Indian army to issue a press statement stating that they had handed over the photographs to scientists for examination. They also claimed that they tweeted about their discovery to rekindle scientific interest as per a report in the BBC. Whether the Indian army regretted revealing their discovery or not, it at least has revived interest in the elusive yet. Who knows what further explorers may find?
