Skiers have been told to stay calm after video of an “alleged yeti sighting” went viral.
Shaky footage of what looks like a strange ape-like creature with white furclambering though the snow was posted online this week.
Spanish ski resort bosses have been forced to comb part of the Pyrenees after the images sent the internet into a frenzy. But sceptical viewers of the footage say it is just a man dressed in a furry suit.
A skier sounded the alert after posting the photo taken at Formigal in northeastern Spain on a popular website with the message: “Strange animal spotted in Formigal. What the hell is this?.”
Steve Berry, of Badminton, Gloucestershire, photographed a huge set of tracks on a remote mountainside – which has never been visited by man.
The prints – larger than a human footprint – are in a single line, one in front of the other.
Mr Berry claims no four-legged creature could have left the trail.
A local yak herder confirmed they were Yeti tracks – and revealed he saw the Abominable Snowman in the area 11 years.
LOCATION: The tracks were found on a remote side of the mountain Gangkhar Puensum
The tracks were on Gangkhar Puensum in the Himalayas – the world’s highest unclimbed mountain.
The remote peak lies in the ancient mountain kingdom of Bhutan – where even the royal family believes the Yeti lives.
Mr Berry’s local guide spotted 17,800ft up a mountain pass, 200 yards away across an impassible chasm.
