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.

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 forward the hypothesis that the Yowie is an experience not an a...

I put forward the hypothesis that the Yowie is an experience not an actual undocumented species, ghost, alien, or inter-dimensional being. This hypothesis stresses that there is not any evidence for the Yowie that is not misidentified or faked, nor will there ever be. While the subjective experience of the Yowie may be real to the group or individual, the objective reality is quite mundane and distinctly at odds with the alleged experience. Essentially, the Yowie experience is completely imaginary. Yet in spite of its fictionality, the Yowie will live on because the story is important – it bon... [More]

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 the Allunie... [More]

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