"In Australia alone is to be found the Grotesque,
the Weird, the strange scribblings of Nature learning how to write.
Some see no beauty in our trees without shade, our flowers without perfume, our birds who cannot fly,
and our beasts who have not yet learned to walk on all fours.
But the dweller in the wilderness acknowledges the subtle charm of this fantastic land of monstrosities...
The phantasmagoria of that wild dreamland termed the Bush interprets itself..." - Marcus Clarke

"But it peaked
in 1994 when I went camping in some mountains near Canberra and I saw a creature, which at the time I had no idea what it was and
it completely freaked me out, but when I came back and told people about it they said to me, 'You've seen the yowie'."
Why are Russians still searching for Bigfoot?
Countless enthusiasts have searched for the Yeti in North America and Europe. But what
about Russia? The country’s vast forests and huge mountains have barely been explored, so who knows - perhaps the big furry beast
is hiding out in the Motherland?
‘Bigfoot’ causes panic in Gadag village
The discovery of unusual footprints in Antur village of Gadag has caused panic and excitement
among villagers who believe an alien may have landed in their backyard. To lend weight to their conspiracy theory, some villagers
claim to have heard a heavy breathing at around 2 am on Sunday and some 20-30 large footprints, which do not resemble anything they
have seen previously...
Wandering shaman 'mistaken' for Bigfoot in North Carolina
A self-described shaman says a strange creature reportedly spotted in the
hills of North Carolina last week was actually him dressed in animal skins. The 36-year-old, who was on holiday from Minnesota, writes
on his blog about his personal belief in Bigfoot, or "the divine nature of sasquatch", as he calls it. He writes that by dressing
in sewn animal skins, and by reciting a "sasquatch prayer", he has had several encounters with the beast...
The Americans' view is that Britain isn't big enough to sustain a Bigfoot population and it's
ridiculous that British people might think it exists here. The counter argument is that "our Bigfoot is slightly smaller, so you can
have more of them here"...
Goodall said she’s heard many stories from people who have no reason to
lie about a Sasquatch sighting. And that makes her believe.
“It’s bizarre that we’ve never found any remains,” Goodall said.
“Maybe it’s a spiritual creature. The closest I come when I think about ‘what could it be’ is like the remnant of Neanderthals.”...
The deep mystery at our core is that we want to be connected to the great
beyond. And we need symbols to help us understand the connection. That’s why we believe in God or angels or the Loch Ness Monster.
Throughout human history, and across human cultures, we have developed messengers from the great beyond. Ultimately, that’s what the
Ray went out to look into a report of Bigfoot prints in Burke
County behind a man’s house, he said.
“There were broken limbs in the woods and at least two footprints in the mud,” Ray said.
“I told him, ‘This is a hoax, sir – either you’re trying to pull a fast one on me, or someone’s pulling a fast one on you.”
It could have been anything – maybe another animal, a couple
rocks falling or maybe I imagined it. No one else heard anything. But, in my mind, I’m sure. I heard something clap back, ever so
It wasn’t enough to turn me into a Bigfoot believer, but it made me want to believe. It also made me wonder: Why do
people believe in Bigfoot?
The relative plausibility of impossible beings tells you a lot about how the mind works...
It was billed as a drama, but many of Ghostwatch's 11 million viewers were taken in
by the BBC's fake investigation, which in one tragic case led to a teenager taking his own life. On its 25th anniversary, his parents

"When a judge

As I knelt beside the 38 cm footprint, one of several
dozen distinctly impressed in the muddy side road in the foothills of the Blue Mountains of southeastern Washington, the hair literally
stood up on my neck with the incredulous sensation that a sasquatch may indeed have passed by here just hours earlier...
The heroes of Finding Bigfoot build campfires in the woods and knock on trees to communicate, a bit like Boy Scouts
in the 1950s, who, in turn, were imitating popular depictions of “settlers and Indians”. In the end, perhaps Bigfoot is really a symbol
of what I would call “deep nostalgia,” a longing not for any particular time or place but for the past itself...
How the null hypothesis keeps the hairy hominid alive...
The hairy man-beast known as the “Sasquatch” or “Bigfoot” is now ever present in North
American culture. Supposedly a throwback to our evolutionary past, it is an “ape-man” version of us just as the little-bodied, big-headed,
humanoid extraterrestrial is a futuristic one. Together they represent powerful mythologies for our shrinking planet—Bigfoot as the
very symbol of the endangered species and ET as the promise that we are not alone in the universe...
I wish, I wish, I wish. I wish all the people that claim to actually “see” Bigfoots (and other anomalous
cryptids) while out, could do a little research-- on altered states... Then, maybe a good number of folks could admit, or realize,
they're having *involuntary* visionary experiences “most” of the time and misidentifying the “rest” of the time...
Since 1936 there have been many hundreds of claims of thylacines seen, footprints found and vocalisations
heard. Dead ones have even been reported (trapped, shot, road-killed and found), sometimes glibly (such as poachers reporting illegally
trapping and releasing one in 1972), but almost invariably so long after the fact that confirmation has not been possible...
"This is free entertainment to us," Russell said, gesturing to the potentially
cryptid-infested woods around him. "It's either this or sit home and watch TV - but this here, you're actually living it."
Of the nine “yeti” samples, eight turned out to be
from bears native to the area, the researchers report today in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B. The other sample came from
a dog. Similar studies of hair samples supposedly related to North America’s big hairy hominid, the sasquatch (aka Bigfoot), have
revealed that those fibers came from bears, horses, dogs, and a variety of other creatures—even a human...
The sighting has caused a bit of a stir
on social media, with people making jokes about the hairy guy. But it’s also raising questions about the motives of those who reported
"It has come down to yowies and black panthers," she said. "When I looked
into the (neighbour's) yard, I could see (the guinea fowls) getting attacked by - you're gonna' love this - an unseen predator..."
yesterday it seems the mystery creature was identified - Ms McCullock posted to Facebook again and said the attacks were actually
caused by a pack of wild dogs and dingoes...
