Yeti Lives?

A TV crew from the show Destination Truth claims that they've found what could be Yeti footprints in Nepal's Everest region. They've taken castings of the three prints and plan to have scientists examine them. From the BBC News: A Nepalese member of the team spotted three footprints and alerted (Destination Truth's Josh) Gates, who told the BBC the first print was a "pristine" right paw mark, 33 cm (13 inches) long, with five toes in a wide spread of 25 cm. There was also a heel print and another fainter one. An excited Mr Gates described the main footprint as anthropomorphic, meaning it had human characteristics. He said he did not believe the prints were man-made or that they came from a known animal such as a bear. But he also said he was not sure he believed in the Yeti, and did not know what to make of it.
