7 thousand dollars was paid for a photo of allegedly Yeti footprints taken in the Himalayas in 1951. A photograph of the mysterious footprints believed to belong to Bigfoot sold for 3,500 pounds ($ 7,000).
The photograph was exhibited at Christie's London-based exploration and travel auction.
A photo of Bigfoot's footprint was taken in the Himalayas in 1951. A team of climbers went there on a reconnaissance mission before attempting to conquer Everest for the first time, which happened two years later.
One of them, Tom Bourdillon, sent a photo to his friend Michael Davis with the inscription on the back: "Dear Mick, this is a photo of the footprints: sorry for the delay. We stumbled upon them on the high mountain pass during the expedition to Everest in 1951."
"I do not know what it is, but I am absolutely sure that they do not belong to any of the animals that live in the Himalayas. Compare the depth of these tracks with those of Mike Ward. Tom Bourdillon "
Bigfoot was first seen in 1925 by N. A. Tomaz, a member of the Royal Geographical Society, during an expedition to the Himalayas. The existence of Bigfoot has caused violent controversy, but until now the facts confirming it have not been provided.
