Photos of "Yeti footprints" posted online by the Indian army triggered a social media storm Tuesday, with users ridiculing the military for propagating theories debunked by science. The army tweeted three images late Monday showing a series of foot-shaped impressions, each almost a meter long in the snow in the Himalayas near the Nepal-China frontier.Largely regarded by the scientific community as a myth, the Yeti is part of Nepali folklore and is said to live high in the snow-capped Himalayas.Several Twitter users asked why there was a series of only one footprint when the beast would probably have had two feet.The army said the footprints measured 81 centimeters by 38 and were spotted by a team on April 9 close to the Makalu Base Camp.
