Bigfoot’s Australian cousin called “Yowie” has been spotted and my cryptozoology juices are officially flowing
NY Post – Three men shared how they encountered a Bigfoot-like “Yowie” as they walked home from work – leaving them terrified.
The men, from Queensland, Australia, claimed to have encountered the beast on their way home earlier this month.
The Courier Mail reported that the three plantation workers were driving Saturday, December 4 to Jimna base camp in Australia when they spotted the animal.
They said they spotted the “slouching figure” under a street lamp and when the figure noticed them, she turned in their direction.
Seamus Fitzgerald told the Courier Mail he described the mysterious figure as having “very long arms” and a “monkey-like” face.
He said: âWe initially thought it was a wild boar or a really big animal until we got close and saw it run off in a very monkey way.
âI’ve never really had a paranormal or weird experience like this before.
“I barely slept that night and it was overwhelming to have seen something I had never believed in before.”
Well, damn it, we have some cryptozoology coming up on a Thursday afternoon! Love it. For those not in the know, cryptozoology is the study of animals whose existence is disputed much like the Loch Ness monster or Bigfoot and I happen to be a HUGE cryptozoology guy. Nothing spins my engine like a moth observing a bridge or a random guy in Loch Ness putting a dinosaur figure in the water and pretending he sees Nessie. Just fantastic, fun stuff all around. So obviously like I said before one of the most crafted guys in the cryptid world is the Bigfoot or the Yeti or the Sasquatch or whatever you’d like to call their species so it’s still fun when we have an observation and have an observation We do.
This time around, that sighting took place in the Land Down Under which, shockingly, much like the male and female words in dude and sheila have a different name for the Bigfoot which is called a “Yowie.” Now I’ll admit when the Aussie’s body gets us and they absolutely do it here because Yowie is MUCH cooler than Bigfoot or Sasquatch.
Now when we think of Australia I honestly automatically think it’s just a land full of cryptids … almost like Skull Island in King Kong folklore to the point where you shouldn’t even be an Australian citizen if you haven’t seen one of these. AGAIN it’s really creepy …
Residents of the small town of Jimna, with a population of just 91, are said to have claimed to have seen evidence of the supposed Yowie before.
Mr Slocock-Bennett said: âWe did a few hikes afterwards to see it, but unfortunately they weren’t very well organized, too crowded and too noisy.
The small town only has 91 inhabitants and there has already been evidence of Yowie? OH BABY! My keen sense of cryptozoology is buzzing after reading this. I have to keep this in mind if I ever go to Australia. I have to see if the food even remotely compares to the wonderful Outback Steakhouse we know and love in America and if I see a Yowie. Awesome stuff.
