Bigfoot news

Back in August when the Georgia frauds said they had a stuffed bigfoot costume, I posted that a Japanese team just set off for the Himalayas in search of the Yeti. Well they supposedly found a footprint. And I am calling hoax right now. This is not a footprint of a animal this is a human footprint.

Japanese team finds 'yeti footprints' in Nepal

KATHMANDU (AFP) — A team of Japanese adventurers say they have discovered footprints they believe were made by the legendary yeti said to roam the Himalayan regions of Nepal and Tibet.

"The footprints were about 20 centimetres (eight inches) long and looked like a human's," Yoshiteru Takahashi, the leader of the Yeti Project Japan, told AFP in Kathmandu on Monday.

Takahashi was speaking after he returned with his seven-member team from their third attempt to track down the half-man-half-ape, tales of which have gripped the imaginations of Western adventurers and mountaineers for decades.

Despite spending 42 days on Dhaulagiri IV -- a 7,661-metre (25,135-foot) peak where they say they have seen traces of yetis in the past -- the team failed in their prime objective of capturing one on film.

But Takahashi said the footprints were proof enough.

"Myself and other team members have been coming to the Himalayas for years and we can recognise bear, deer, wolf and snow leopard prints and it was none of those," he said.

Lets compare the print from above to the one Josh Gates found in the Himalayas last year.

Its night and day. Not even close to the same. Gates actually captured thermal imaging footage of a large bipedal creature right before he found the print.

I hope the Japanese team is not fooling anybody. This is obvious a human footprint. Probably someone had to take a leak in the middle of the night, and couldn't find their boots.
