"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

In addition to animals, there are numerous other possibilities: hoaxes, including
those of a diminutive man who wore a hairy suit with bicycle-reflector eyes; claims made by persons with fantasy-prone personalities
and by ubiquitous attention seekers; real wild men, like a bearded, naked, mentally disturbed man mistaken for a Yowie; and many other
possibilities, including simple hallucinations and apparitional experiences. For example, “waking dreams” that occur between wakefulness
and sleep may explain some cases of persons waking to see a Yowie looking at them. Again, like sightings of ghosts—typically
seen when the percipient is tired, performing routine work, daydreaming, or the like—a Yowie’s image may well up from the subconscious
and be superimposed on the visual scene.
It is claimed
a dog walker stumbled across the bizarre sight on the banks of Loch Ness, Scotland, yesterday afternoon.
Some, however, have
called into question the authenticity of the image saying it is strange the remains still had the internal organs intact. With many
pointing out they would have surely rotted away when the flesh did.
As a journalist and publisher, Green had
access to a variety of British Columbia news. He had written a fictional April Fool’s story about Sasquatch in 1953. But he first
asked seriously about Sasquatch in 1956 when Swiss-born René Dahinden entered Green’s office to inquire about two-legged upright creatures,
like the Abominable Snowmen, reported in the area. Green told Dahinden the accounts were nonsense.
Eaglehawk is a film that takes us into the woods to come face to face with the mythical Yowie - but not
as you might imagine. Beneath the costume of the Yowie is a young woman who is finding her own voice while ambushing those who are
determined to believe in her existence.
Shortly after the original video went viral, a Bigfoot investigator
from Utah even visited the site in Southeast Idaho where the footage was shot to obtain physical evidence. The investigator allegedly
obtained footprint and hair samples from the scene and featured the investigation in a 40-plus minute YouTube video of his own.
the videographer heard that the investigator was looking to have the hair specimens analyzed in a laboratory, he decided it was time
to reveal the truth.
[T]he data we have at the moment – this includes tracks, hairs, vocalisations, photos, and the innumerable
eyewitness accounts – provides support for the notion that Bigfoot is real, and have come to the conclusion that it is a sociocultural
phenomenon: that people are seeing all manner of different things, combining it with ideas, memes and preconceptions they hold in
their minds, and interpreting them as encounters with a monstrous, human-like biped.
“They can’t exist, therefore they don’t exist,” is the message Meldrum has received from skeptics,
he says. “That was the actual retort hurled at me by an anthropology colleague.”
With Bigfoot having grown into an industry,
Long says there’s no reason to believe anyone invested in the debate is telling the truth. “They need it to be real,” he says. The
people who truly believe and search, he adds, “are driven emotionally, I believe, to find Bigfoot.”
And though Conner and Barton make no money doing this, they're part of a thriving
Bigfoot subculture that has turned into a cottage industry, with a proliferation of hundreds of websites, YouTube videos, books, T-shirts,
conferences, $300 expeditions to "Squatchy" haunts in Oregon and Vermont, and personalities vying for TV gigs.

The video snippet was filmed in someones backyard in broad daylight in the Adelaide Hills. It captures the animal slipping away behind a wheelie bin and some trees.
But I think that when you spend a lot of time looking for something you are more inclined to focus on the evidence FOR it and ignore or downplay the evidence AGAINST.
ED: Hmm... What to make of a sensational anonymous claim posted by a prolific Yowie-hoaxer/researcher?
Not sure why this one went viral...
A man claims to have experienced a close encounter with a 'Yeti' after coming across a 'gorilla-like creature' in Welsh woodlands. Bigfoot enthusiast Jason Parsons, 40, was on a hunt for the elusive beast in woods near Caerphilly Mountain, North of Cardiff, when he experienced the surreal sighting...
Some of Ian's friends think his picture actually shows three seals playing in the water.
Ian said: "I suppose it could be seals - but I'm not so sure. The more I think about it, the more I think it could be Nessie."
A search of the 19th-century Springfield, Massachusetts papers revealed over 900 stories about “wildmen,” nearly all of them from other states. There were a shocking number of “wild man” stories in the papers in general, from the earliest times and they are written using language (“bestial” “hairy” “maniac”) that makes it difficult to tell whether a hermit, a lunatic, or a non-human animal is involved.
[Prof. Chris French: "If you believe that there might really be a monster out there and you see something that looks vaguely like it might be a monster, you may well add in details without realising that's what you are doing.
"Even information that you come across after you had an experience can alter your memory."
[I]f the supernatural is seriously considered, the events and phenomena reported or described within a group give us evidence of a particular way of perceiving the world. It provides insight into cultural identity and a greater awareness ofthe breadth and quality of human experiences and expressions.
I filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, hoping that I could flesh out some more of this tale, and see if there was anything to it… at all! Of course, I wanted to find the Dead Bigfoots The Government Has Been Hiding. But baring that, was there any other thread of this tale that might be true?
