well I have heard a lot about these big foot like creatures there is cave pantings
all around australia which depict them all very similar dating back a very long time
I think you guys should look in to it
The following passages are from another website
"According to the far south coastal and north eastern Victorian tribes, the gorilla-like Doolagarl was described as a hairy, big-chested, muscular
beast with long, powerful legs, long, swinging powerful arms and big hands. His forehead went back from his eyebrows and his head was sunk into his
shoulders, giving him a stooped appearance as he strode about the bushland.
In the old days, say the Aborigines, no tribespeople would let their campfire go out at night, for if they did, a Doolagarl might come out of the bush
and carry one of them off. He would tear off arms and legs, or smash the victim's body against a tree or large boulder and eat it raw. Obviously this
Doolagarl was not the vegetarian form of the 'hairy man'!
Even in modern times the Aborigines of south-coastal NSW and north-eastern Victoria fear the "hairy men and women" of the coastal ranges, and have
many tales of encounters with these creatures.
Take for example the story given to this author by part Aboriginal, Mr James Brittle:
"Late one afternoon in October 1978, myself and a group of several other part Aboriginal mates were returning in a truck from a bushland property
outside Towamba, 16 km west of Eden, where we had been visiting friends."
"As we drove along a bush track a few kilometres outside the town, the vehicle broke down, forcing us to walk a few kilometres into the town for
help. Night fell and we had to use a couple of torches to see our way."
"After a while, as we talked, one of my mates in the rear heard a sound, and flashing our torches back down the track, we saw the tall, dark hairy
figure of a Doolagarl man-beast."
"We were terrified. We shouted at the creature, and flashed the torches at his eyes, hoping this would drive him off like our tribal elders had
claimed, but it had no effect on him other than to make him shield his eyes with his big hands as he strode towards us."
"We began throwing rocks and pieces of wood at him, but as he continued to approach us we took off, running frantically along the track."
"After a minute or so we realised the hairy monster had vanished into the dense scrub. Catching our breath for a moment, we continued to hurry along
"Eventually we reached the end of the track on the outskirts of the town, and coming out onto a sealed road, we looked back to see, to our horror the
hairy man-beast again, standing in the middle of the track. He stood a good 2m tall. His face looked like a Gorilla's and he let out a sort of
growling noise, before walking off into the bush. That was the last time we ever used that track, and we got the NRMA bloke to pick up the truck."
This is just one story I have Aboriginal friends who will swear on their mothers graves thar they have seen them and heard them!
