Animal Planet TV crew capture 'yowie' audio

The four-man 'Finding Bigfoot' team believe they have captured audio of a bigfoot in Australia.

The team had conducted an expedition in the forests of Queensland and New South Wales in search of the elusive bipedal hominid that is known locally as the "yowie". BFRO researcher James Fay contends that audio recordings captured during their travels in the region are some of the most compelling yet but that it will be necessary to wait until the episode airs before the evidence can be revealed.

"We got some really compelling audio," he said. "It is not a known species, I can tell you that. One of the details (convinces us) there is nothing else it could have been."

"The four-member team from Animal Planet's Finding Bigfoot series were on an expedition through remote forests spanning the Queensland and NSW border when they made the recordings."

We have one of the greatest mimics in nature in Australia ......the Lyre Bird, and believe me they are incredible. I went walking deep into Jamison Valley in the Blue Mountains near Sydney a few years ago and heard someone coughing near by..... now we were the only people around for miles and was a load deep cough......repeated over and over....scared two shades of ****e out of me...............low and behold it was a Lyre Bird.

Yes, they are incredibly good at it, saw one recently on TV that sounded more like a chainsaw than the real thing !

Yeah the lyre birds are wicked. I can picture them hearing a 'yowie' then turning around to see a bird.

There are plenty of things is could be yet if you are of the belief that Yowies are real and are immersed in the folklore then everything that goes bump in the night could also be a Yowie. Make no mistake about it – the Australian bush can be an intimidating place at the best of times. Come the inky darkness of night and it can be downright sinister and it is simply human nature to fill in the blanks: “We could be being watched right this very moment…” “Did you hear that?” “I thought I saw something moving…” cue adrenaline I put forw...

I agree. The experience is called "shi****' yourself". The best of times are to be had when you're "shi****' yourself". Doesn't matter if it's aliens, cryptids or ghosts, there's nothing quite like "shi**** yourself" along with your buddies. And the "true stories" of these events are added to in the telling... forever more. In my experience.

I live in the Blue Moutains near Sydney but I also have a 600 acre farm 2.5 hours west of my home near a township called Koorawatha. I have had the farm for well over 10 years niow and it sits empty most of the time except when i look after cattle from the neighbours to help pay rates etc. The farm is 300 acres prime farmland and the other 300 acres goes up into the Allunie Ranges where there are waterfalls (when it rains) caves etc etc. Now people from the township have told me of tales of the "Koorawatha Hairy Man" that has been know since aboriginal times. It is supposed to roam t... [More]

Did no one see that yowie at the start of the video, on its way to hide behind the tree?? It looks greyish to me.
