Yowie hunters capture new thermal footage

A Yowie research group in Australia has recorded footage that allegedly shows the elusive creature.
Although encounters with large bipedal hominids are mostly associated with North America and the Himalayas, stories of such creatures have been reported for hundreds of years in countries all over the world including Russia, China and even Australia where it is known locally as the Yowie.

In Queensland, a group known as 'Australia Yowie Research' has spent years hunting for evidence that a large, unidentified ape-like creature is roaming the outback.

Now researcher Dean Harrison believes that he may have hit the jackpot.

Recorded during a recent trip to Springbrook National Park on May 4th, the footage - which was filmed using a thermal camera - shows what Harrison describes as "two nine-feet tall Yowies".
"We estimated that they must have been at least nine feet (2.75m) tall and they made no noise arriving and no noise leaving that area," he said.

"We wouldn't have known if anything was there if it wasn't for the thermal cameras."

The video, which can be viewed below, does appear to show something, however it is difficult to determine what that could be - let alone accept it as definitive proof of the Yowie.

"I couldn't care less if people refuse to acknowledge their existence," said Harrison.

"I'm not here to convince them, I'm here to provide the facts."

I understand what your saying,but if i personally was in the wilderness camping in the dark and suddenly had rocks thrown at me followed by trees getting pushed over,the last thing on my mind would be wondering around collecting samples.the main concern would be not getting my arms and legs ripped off. It seems to me,many people who have an experience are traumatized by the event,and rarely if ever go hunting/ camping again.in lots of cases not mentioning the event for years afterwards. As for bf tv shows and the bfro research group they are just cash grabs,and do more harm than good.(my opini... [More]

Diddy, your - "the main concern would be not getting my arms and legs ripped off." brings back a story I read long ago, the link no longer exists.. A group of men went up into the Himalayas to harvest fruits and vegetables. They had built a small hut to store their harvest so it will be cool and preserve in the mountain air. One day, a Yeti came amongst them and was very agitated. All the men ran. One man made the mistake of taking shelter in the hut, and the Yeti ripped the hut apart, got the man and ripped HIM apart, limb by limb. Apparently the men were competing with the Yeti for the same ... [More]

  Goal post moving and arm waving at its finest. Yep, stories of stories with zero proof, so once we see a local official report of some guy getting ripped up then we move on to how did it happen and not make a blind jump to it was done by a mythical creature. Sorry its very weak to make up a sinario of rocks thrown and trees toppled ( i havent heard of bf pushing trees over on campers, great imagination there ) and say you would flee in terror so everyone would do the same. Im a great example, i startle easy but i assure you if and thats a hugh qualifying "if" i was out camping and trees were... [More]
