Australia is known to have its own bigfoot type creature, called the Yowie. This Australian cousin to the sasquatch seems to match the description of its North American counterpart, and is also known for its more aggressive behavior towards humans.
AUSTRALIA — A man claims he recently saw an 8-foot bipedal creature in Southeast Australia.
The Victoria resident, who provided a full name but requested to remain anonymous, told Cryptozoology News on Saturday that he was hiking in Mount Pilot March 12 when he spotted the undetermined creature.
“I was looking for a photography opportunity,” he said. “I was walking alone, up the trail. There were trees on either side and it was approaching dark. Further up the trail, I heard a large animal moving through the undergrowth.”
The 26-year-old store owner added that he suddenly saw the animal running across the trail and that it then disappeared.
He described it as an 8-foot creature walking on two legs with long arms and a short neck. Its body, he said, was “covered in a shaggy brown hair”.
