Hey man, A few years ago I was staying at a friends farm and I think we saw the same thing you described, there was a few animals going missing around that time too, dogs found killed and birds with wings and necks shredded. Anyway, we were out shooting fruit bats at night, when we saw something lumbering and making growling noises in some bushes near a fence, at first we thought a kangaroo was caught in the barbed wire. It was fairly close by, just near the trees that the bats were in, so we went to take a closer look, when the bushes just sort of exploded apart! So we just bailed back to the motorbikes and rode home as fast as we could. The next morning we went back to the spot and the fence was ripped apart, we both thought that whatever it was must have had fairly tough skin, as there was no fur or flesh caught on the barbed wire.
Though in our story, the creature seemed more scared then aggressive and there was no bad smell. I also found out that most of the Aboriginal stories of Yowies were just to scare children and misbehaver's into being good though.

Interesting point about the Aboriginal stories though. I talked to the local elders here a while back and they said that they did use the story to control troublesome children, but that the story did have a basis in fact. The Yowie, as with all of Aboriginal history, connected to the ancestor spirits from the Dreamtime.
Possibly an angry spirit itself?

I am new to ATS although I have been lurking for a while. I joined because someone I know has recently had an encounter with a yowie and I thought you guys might be interested. A couple of weeks ago this lady came in to where I work and seemed to be a bit troubled.
I asked her if she was ok then she told me about how she and her friend had seen a yowie the a couple of nights before. It was standing in the culvert at the side of the road and seemed a dazed by headlights.She could see its fur move as she drove past and was a classic yeti shape with no neck from the picture she drew. She is a down to earth kind of person so I totally believe her. Has anyone else heard of this incident yet? It was reported in the local paper.

This is in NSW Taree area in a location called Krambach. There was an article in the local Wingham Chronicle paper but there were errors in their report of course. The lady went back to the spot the next day and they found footprints and strong smell of urine sround a sapling that had been stripped of bark. The thing that surprised her about these prints were that the creature had 3 toes on each foot- what on earth is this thing- a giant sloth?
Anyhow, this is not the first report of a yowie in this area but the other reports have described them as having yellow hair but this one was dark.
If I can get photos of the footprints I will try and post them.
