I beg your pardon?
A true "Yowie" in Indigenous mythology is a 6 foot tall Ant like creature with large red eye4s on the side of it's head that devours people, and only comes out at night. A joker by the name of Rex Gilroy popularised the term in local media in 1972. Closest beast would be the Dooligahl.
Tenzing Norgay, Sir Edmond Hillary's Sherpa changed his stance on the Yeti, and came to publicly say that he felt it was not more than a story.
I live in what Aussie Cryptzoologists call a Yowie Hotspot. Never heard anything so ridiculous.
