According to the Indian Army, a Yeti has been spotted in the Himalayas.
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.

For those of you who may not be familiar, a Yeti is an ancient mythical creature that has been said to date back to pre-Buddhist times. According to the Lepcha people of the Himalayan region, it is also known as the ‘Glacier being,’ one of their hunting gods, and the ruler of all forest creatures.
And according to Indian media, it seems as if the mythical beast has been spotted.
Apparently, an Indian mountaineering team spotted footprints of the yeti in the snow, measuring 32×15 inches close to the Makalu base camp at the beginning of this month.
The army has released extra photos and videos in support of their claim as well.
The images allegedly match up with previous theories held by the Army sources and have been handed over to experts in the field.
*What we thought the footage was going to be*
All jokes aside though, this yeti, if it is the actual yeti – is no laughing matter. The Yeti is the oldest mythical creature in the book. It has been the source of cautionary tales all over the world used to scare little kids before going to bed at night. And some adults. Me.
It bears (pun intended) similarity to ‘Big Foot’ who you may have also heard of.
^ Just a theoretical image.
‘Big Foot’ is a similar mythical character in the way that it also stands upright like a man however Big Foot, is native to North America, specifically the Pacific Northwest while the Yeti, lives in Asia.
There have been multiple instances of people all over the world spotting footprints of these mythical creatures at different points in history yet with no one able to actually catch the big guy. It truly is a mystery and if you ask me, we should let it go about its business. It has chosen to live its life in the north in its own abominable bliss and we, as young as we are compared to this INFINITE soul are no one to interfere with its pre-planned lifetime mountain wandering. Just saying.
Also, LOL, it doesn’t look like anyone’s really all that excited about it.
This aint exciting!!While studying in South India,one fine day after coming from college i found big foot prints outside my room on the top balcony door !I was so shocked to see,made my friends put imprints but it was way huge to be a prank,i never slpt alone in that room though!

Should've stopped at stating mysterious footprints. Could've Been Hanuman or the Big foot out on vacations. Army should continue mountaineering and not disturb the vacationing God/mythical creatures, they too need a break from Indian elections.

^ This is all I am saying. Maybe he’s on vacation!! LEAVE YETI ALONE!
Congratulations, we are always proud of you. salutes to the #IndianArmy Moutaineering Expedition Team. But please, you are Indian, dont call Yeti as beast. Show respect for them. If you say he is a 'snowman'.

Most are actually pretty disappointed, which is a little sad.
Seriously disappointing to see Army propagating such foolish myths into reality. Expected better from you guys

This Yeti is getting five-star treatment and it isn’t even AROUND. We know the elections in India might be driving everyone crazy but like, lol, take a breather friends.
