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.

Portal, spaceship or because I believe they are a tulpa created by thought, people's minds. If you think it's a living being, the ancient land bridge.

Yeah, I wouldn't call them a predator but I shot a 80kg feral boar on the plant nursery/farm I worked on, it was pulling a lamb out of a birthing ewe as it tried to escape and ate it. The pig didn't even try to escape and I shot it at just 10m. You wouldn't want to get badly injured in pig areas out bush.

This dude I used to shoot with had a buddy was killed by a boar.  Caught him right between the legs and bled him out on the femoral.  Dead in 30 seconds.

The article is definitely lacking in some vital information as to the fatal injuries.

I came within a hairs breadth of that happening to me at age 15.

There are some good Aussie bushwalking forums covering many of the areas considered Yowie "hotspots" (by cryptid enthusiasts). These people love nature, are very experienced regularly trekking and camping in wild and remote country that can only be accessed on foot,  sometimes completely alone. They love giving advice, sharing what they have learnt from experience and talking about their journeys. Yet you won't find a mention of Yowies anywhere. There could be a reason for that.

I wonder: they like meat, they are able to kill with their tusks, they are strong and fierce, they are tough... They could evolve into predators.
