Climbers find footprints of abominable snowman?

By Gopal Sharma

KATHMANDU (Reuters) - Japanese climbers returning from a mountain in western Nepal said Tuesday they had found footprints they think belonged to the abominable snowman or Yeti.

"We saw three footprints which looked like that of human beings," Kuniaki Yagihara, a member of the Yeti Project Japan, said in Kathmandu, after returning from the mountain with photographs of the footprints.

The climbers, equipped with long-lens cameras, video cameras and telescopes, said, however that they did not see or take any photographs of the creature.

The Yeti is said to live in the Himalayan regions of Nepal and is largely regarded by the scientific community as a mythical creature.

Yagihara, 61, said the creature's footprints were found on snow at an altitude of about 4,800 meters (15,748 feet) in the Dhaulagiri mountain range in western Nepal.

"We know how the footprints of bear, deer and mountain goat look like and it was none of that," he said. "We believe it is that of Yeti."

They couldn't get a close-up because of the long-lenses and telescopes? :cheeky:

There are occasionally ascetics on these mountains who may be barefoot so it may be a person.

Hell, if there were footprints *at all* there should be a photo!

(I don't think we think they really found 'proof'... ;))

Then they shouldn't have been on a yeti finding expedition if they didn't want to find proof...

I'd love to find proof...

It'd be cool... and I'd make a fortune!

If there were footprints, that's be a help...
