From the Dreamtime the Yowie In Myth And Reality
hairy man-like Creature
Late one night
in early 1959 Mr and Mrs Ken and June Jeffcott, together with their
young daughter Vicki, were driving towards Katoomba through Mt Victoria
township, along the Great Western Highway.
On the southern
side of town, near the turnoff to Victoria Falls, as they rounded a
bend in the road, they were surprised when their car headlights caught
a huge, hairy man-like creature, about 3 m tall, crossing the road ahead
of them. The 'manbeast' strode quickly into the roadside scrub.
Swamplands-Sampit Java 1959
In February 1959 a group
of four hominids; a female with a young male and two 7-8ft [2.15m-2,45m]
tall male Orang Gadangs were claimed seen by natives moving about in
the southern swamplands near Sampit.
A "hairy giant",
a male creature of 2.6m height and of strong muscular build, was seen
by a farmer, as the manbeast fed upon the torn limbs of a water buffalo
'he' had just killed with a large wooden club, then begun cutting open
with a large jagged stone knife. The farmer ran for help.
By the time he returned with an armed group of men the manbeast had
left the scene. All the men found were large footprints in mud and the
remains of the butchered buffalo.
