Yowie researcher believes wild boar was 'torn in half' by Bigfoot-like cryptid

Evidence of a large creature in a remote part of Queensland, Australia has sparked some heated debate online.
According to researcher Dean Harrison, who has spent 25 years investigating the Yowie (Australia's answer to Bigfoot), a recently emerged video clip that shows giant footprints and a boar torn in half is evidence that this enigmatic creature really is roaming the wilds of Queensland.

The footage was filmed by a group of workers who were stunned to discover a wild boar that had been literally torn into two halves - seemingly by some sort of large, powerful creature.

Drag marks and a set of enormous footprints leading away from the scene also added to the mystery.

Harrison's research into the clip lead him to discover that it had been filmed by a crew who had been working on the Adani Rail project in Central Queensland near Claremont and Glenden.

The men had also experienced strange noises and a feeling of being watched at their camp.
"The narrative seems very genuine," he said. "In my opinion, everything looks right."

"I also receive reports of animals ripped in half all the time."

Ultimately, though, it's difficult to conclude that the boar was definitely killed by a large, undiscovered species of bipedal ape-beast, especially when nobody actually caught the creature in the act.

Exactly what else could have done such damage to the animal, however, remains unclear.

The footage itself can be viewed - here.

The carcass seems to have been cleanly cut in half rather than ripped apart:   Only 2 footprints are visible and they seem to have been made with the same foot/stomper:   Pranking/hoaxing is an integral part of the Yowie phenomenon. To be fair, at least the creators of this one put in a bit of effort for this one and it has fooled a few people (including some “Yowie experts”) but it is what it is.

Why would it tear it in half and not at least eat some of it? Or take it with them? Does it just enjoy ripping critter in half to leave laying about? That to me is why this is certifiable hooey.

Excellent points.  For me it's the laughable "prints".

Maybe it was a couple of four wheel drive enthusiasts, ran it over and then tied it to a tree/truck and pulled it apart

I actually found the back half of a boar in pine forest. I thought a hunter had taken the front half for a trophy mount but now I think it was, A Yowie Attack ?.

Boars are not predators.  While they will scavenge meat, they don't hunt, ergo, not predators.  While Boars are fierce, and have a number of advantages in a fight, they aren't predators, let alone apex predators.

This is an obvious hoax unfortunately.  The imprints are very amateurish, and obviously carved from a plank.  The lack of blood is also a giveaway.  Honestly, I could pull off a better BF hoax than this.

If there is a Yowie in Oz, how did it get there?
