                    Dean Harrison talks about his terrifying yowie encounter



When I first saw this I thought that the Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) was finally going to investigate Dean Harrison’s incredible claim to have been attacked and “thrown threw (sic) the air 12ft” by a 7ft Yowie. It would be interesting to see how an independent investigation is carried out and whether they could possibly reach a different conclusion than mine – namely, that the incident was a hoax fabricated by Harrison himself.


Yowie Tales Tall or True?
by Ed Skoda May 6, 2012

2012 is proving to be another slow year once again for the Yowie with no sightings independently reported in the Australian media yet there is BIG news from the backchannels. While it was thought that no photographs of the Yowie were in existence it turns out that there are two (and possibly more) dating back to 1998 in the latest book by Gympie-based “researcher” Brett  Green. One can be seen on the cover (right).

Is this tangible evidence for one of the greatest zoological discoveries of all time? Why isn’t the world media beating a path to Brett Green’s door?

A group of US researchers from Animal Planet say they have discovered something that will "blow your mind" while looking for the legendary Yowie in Australia.
Renowned Bigfoot hunters Matt Moneymaker and James 'Bobo' Fay have joined forces with Cliff Barackman and field biologist Ranae Holland to track down the Yowie in New South Wales and Queensland.
The expedition is part of the third season of Finding Bigfoot, which airs on Animal Planet.

•Government archives opened under Freedom of Information

•Yowie sighting reported in western suburbs of Sydney

In an email to National Parks and Wildlife Service rangers, the witness said he had filmed the creature in March last year and taken photos of footprints. He even drew the yowie man's head, pecs, arms and feet on the picture to make it clearer.

"I have had a seven-year history with this creature," the witness wrote.

'All three world level universities have finished DNA analysis of the hair and said that the hair belongs to a creature which is closer by its biological parameters to Homo sapiens than a monkey. The Yeti's DNA is evidently less than one per cent different to that of a human.'
