Daniel C Taylor, who has extensively explored the Makalu-Barun area and written a book on the mystery of the Yeti, told Reuters after the Indian Army’s tweet on Tuesday that the footprints were likely those of bears. “If that is the footprint of an animal or a single animal, it’s the size of a dinosaur,” he added.
