Fresh Yeti Tracks Discovered in Nepal
(Yeti Image by Nate Wragg)
Late last week, it was reported that an American television crew may have discovered evidence of the Yeti--the elusive "ape-man" that's said to live in the Himalayas. (And who's known to many as the Abominable Snowman.) The crew had spent a week in the mountains searching for the beast when they came across a series of large footprints on the snow-covered banks of the Manju river.
It's hardly the first time Yeti tracks have been spotted. The picture shown below was taken by a mountain climber in 1951. In 1984, a well-known climber even claimed that a large, fur-covered man had followed him for days as he scaled Mt. Everest.
You can read about the most recent discovery (and see more pictures) here. Perhaps the most interesting part of the article is the poll on the AOL site. Over 50% of the people who voted believe that the Yeti exists. Now that's what I call progress!
