The Abominable Snowman, also known as Yeti, has made news again. In a recent interview with BBC TV, naturalist Sir David Attenborough said that there is "convincing" evidence that the Yeti exists.
Sir David Attenborough was referring to mysterious footprints found at 19,000 feet during an Everest expedition in 1951. Photographic evidence of the footprints was recorded by Eric Shipton. The photos sparked much debate and promted a series of expeditions back to the area- no conclusive evidence was ever found. "Some argue they are the best evidence of Yeti's existence, while others contend the prints are those of a mundane creature that have been distorted by the melting snow." (wiki)
