NY Post- Three men have told how they encountered an apparent Bigfoot-like “Yowie” as they travelled home from work – leaving them terrified.
The men, from remote Queensland, Australia, have claimed they came across the beast while driving home earlier this month.
The Courier Mail reported the three plantation workers were driving on Saturday, December 4 to the Jimna Base Camp in Australia when they spotted the animal.
They said they spotted the “slouched over figure” under a street light and when the figure noticed them, it turned in their direction.
Seamus Fitzgerald told The Courier Mail described the mysterious figure as having “very long arms” and an “apelike” face.
He said: “We initially thought it was a boar or a really big animal until we got closer and saw it runoff in a very apelike way.
“I’ve never really had a paranormal or strange experience like that before.
“I hardly slept that night and the feeling was overwhelming that I had seen something that I never believed in previously.”
Well hot damn we got some Cryptozoology coming in HOT on a Thursday afternoon! Love this. 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 revs my engine quite like a moth man sighting on a bridge or some random dude in Loch Ness putting a dinosaur action figure in the water and claiming he sees Nessie. Just fantastic and fun stuff all around. So obviously as I previously stated one of the biggest made guys in the cryptid world is the Bigfoot or the Yeti or the Sasquatch or whatever the hell you’d like to call their species so it’s always fun when we have a sighting and have a sighting we do.
This time around this sighting happened to take place in the Land Down Under which, shockingly, much like words for men & women in bloke & sheila have a different name for the Bigfoot which happens to be called a ‘Yowie’. Now I will admit when the Aussie’s body us and they absolutely do here because Yowie is SO MUCH cooler than Bigfoot or Sasquatch.
Now when we think of Australia I’d honestly automatically think it’s just a land full of cryptids…almost like Skull Island from King Kong folklore to the point where you shouldn’t even be an Aussie citizen if you haven’t seen one of these. YET this is really creepy…
Locals from the tiny town of Jimna, with a population of just 91 people, have reportedly claimed to have seen evidence of the supposed Yowie before.
Mr Slocock-Bennett said: “We went on a few hikes after to see it, but sadly they weren’t organised very well, too many people and too loud.
The little town only has 91 people and there’s been Yowie evidence before? OH BABY! My cryptozoology spidey sense is BUZZING after reading that. I gotta keep this in mind if I ever go down to Australia. I gotta see if the food even remotely compares to the wonderful Outback Steakhouse we know & love in America and if I see a Yowie. Awesome stuff.
