THERE have been a number of recent ‘yowie’ sightings in Queensland lately... especially in and around the Toowoomba area:
The Himalayan Yeti, the North American Sasquatch, the Yowie or simply ‘Bigfoot’.
We’ve all heard of them, but whether you’re a believer or not could be an entirely different story.
A Queensland woman claims to have spotted the mythical Australian Yowie while hiking in the Darling Downs mountain ranges near Toowoomba.
In an interview posted to the Yowie Hunters YouTube channel, the woman claims she was just six-meters away from the mythical beast.
“It was probably around seven foot tall, it had a head like a gorilla and long arms, I couldn’t see it from the waist down because it was walking through the long grass,” she said.
The bushwalker said the creature sat down in the long grass and ignored her. She tried to get it to turnaround but was careful not to aggravate it.
She likened the creatures’ size to gorilla, describing it to have “big, broad shoulders”.
And is she a believer?
“I thought I was going mad, really,” she said. - Bushwalker claims to have spotted mythical creature
The Australian Yowie Project has released the following image and information:
We have finally obtained permission to release this photo sent to us by two witnesses in Far North Queensland. For Cultural and Security reasons, they have asked for the precise location and identities to be withheld. In October 2014, two men observed this ‘being’ from long range walking towards them. They thought it was workman in overalls and decided to wait for him to get closer. It wasn’t until it got closer that they realized what they saw and took this picture on their phone before quickly leaving the area.
The description was 8-9ft tall, covered in jet black hair, large stomach and muscular neck and shoulders walking like a man. They observed it (when this picture was taken) from a distance of 70-80 meters away.
Please note, we did not take this picture and the validity of the witnesses have been checked to the best of our ability and believe their story to be 100% genuine -- we would love to know what you think?
