The Army claims that photographic evidence matches earlier theories as well.
“We tweeted as we thought prudent to excite the scientific temper and rekindle their interest. Some of us who would reject the story surely shall have a definite answer to the evidence. As they say, nature, history and science never write their final story,” said a source.
There have been a lot of stories about the mystery of the “The Abominable Snowman”. They are usually based on unconfirmed proofs, often bizarre facts about its giant size and terrifying howl.
A very popular Tintin episode, “Tintin in Tibet“, brought the version that the Yeti is furry and ape-like. Those who have ever sighted a yeti claim that what was seen was, in fact, a bear. One of the reports published in 2017 claimed that the creature sighted could have been any of the three different kinds of bears: the Asian black bear, the Tibetan brown bear or the Himalayan brown bear.
“Our findings firmly suggest that the biological characters of the Yeti can be found in local bears,” said the lead scientist Charlotte Lindqvist, who is an associate professor at the University of Buffalo College of Arts and Sciences. During the study, genetic evidence from bone, tooth, skin, hair and faecal samples was collected and were linked to the Yeti.
