Here are the measurements. There is a 5 foot distance between the impressions. If this trackway was made by a native quadrupedal animal (four-legged) then wasn't walking. It had to be leaping or bounding, so to speak.

We could talk about how melting increases the size of impressions, but still there would be the same (and consistent) distance between the impressions.

I see drag marks in a couple of places that are obvious, possibly from a tail. Looks more like a big cat crossed the hillside. I noticed from a closeup of one of the "tracks" the snow was breaking thru, this would also make the big cat theory more likely. Leap and land locomotion. This was likely more about propaganda than a Yeti.

They have snow leopard and they certainly could leap those sorts of distances. I’ve lost it now, but a google search on “snow leopard track” and trawling through images shows some tantalisingly similar tracks to these.
