Sounding a bit on edge mate. I can't see nothing so far. If you think something's gonna charge you just crouch down and cover your upper body. Then you must give a poker face and maybe make some distance if that's what you want.

Here are a few interesting still frames from the latest Chuwar footage. I've included primate comparisons so that you can get an idea
of what I'm seeing in the frames.

Giday Boab.

It's Chuwar near Ipswich in Queensland, an area ( and its surrounds) I've been studying for over a year now.
I dont think it's a car based on some enhancements "Brucetheviking" and myself have been working on (see images)

I'm going back in there late tonight to get a closer look and see if it's still there.

Cheers matey

I neglected to explain that Bruce photo shopped out the branches and a few twigs and then I did a bunch of layering.
All to get a better idea of what is obscured in the original. I dont mean to push it off as an actual complete shot.

Where ancient mound builders at Pine Mountain in S.E Queensland in the past?
A few months ago I filmed a massive set of glowing eyes that walked past me at night.
I went back today to the site I've named "The Mounds", an anomalous set of rampart like artificial looking piles of dirt that seem to have significant age to them. What are these features? The mounds( both of them) have a compass bearing that is orientated to true north.


Now check out this article pointed out to me by Brucetheviking tonight.

Ancient Mound Builder Culture Revealed in Northern Australia

BY BRUCE R. FENTON ON 11TH FEBRUARY 2018 ARCHAEOLOGY
Archaeologists working on a project in western Cape York at the northern tip of Queensland have announced the confirmation of an extensive mound building culture in the region, responsible for hundreds of ceremonial burial mounds. The structures had been known about, indeed some were even built on, but were previously assumed to be natural features of the landscape.
The mounds are so numerous that they stretch across at least 60 kilometres of the Mapoon coast, a remote, mostly indigenous, community in Cape York. Local indigenous families have expressed fears they are surrounded by ghosts, with some mounds being in the gardens of local homeowners.
So far only eleven of the mounds have been carefully studied. The barrow structure range in size but are up to 4 metres high and many do contain human interments. Archaeologists used ground penetrating radar and magnetometer technology to peer beneath the surface and get a glimpse of the internal areas helping them to better understand Aboriginal burial practices, possibly stretching back over many millennia.

The idea to use ground penetrating radar had originated with the local indigenous people, some of whom had watched the technology employed on the popular British television show Time Team.
Many of the mounds were built over noticeably burnt surfaces where ceremonial fires had burned intensely over time. Stones, coral, spears and other objects have already been detected within some of the mounds. The discoveries could change the way we understand Aboriginal burial rites, offering incredible overlap with the Neolithic Europeans who often buried important members of their tribes in similar tumulus.

“We don’t know how old they are. They could be 6,000 years old. They could be tens of thousands of years old. We believe potentially 5,000 to 6,000 years old, but they could be much, much older and potentially also younger, and we need to carry out more research to date them”, offered Archaeologist Dr Mary-Jean Sutton.

A mission was established at Mapoon in 1891 following frontier violence, with catastrophic impact on local indigenous communities. In the 1960s the population was forcibly removed and most of the buildings burned down. This dark history explains why some indigenous families ended up living so close to the burial sites, having lost the aural story explaining what the mounds really were.
“A lot of these people were saying they were being haunted”, Dr Sutton noted.
Local Tjungundji elder Aunty Diane Nicholls said many people in the area had come to assume the mounds were part of the natural landscape, perhaps abandoned turkey nests. The Australian brush-turkey – also known as the scrub or bush turkey – builds nesting mounds out of plant litter and soil which are usually 2 to 4 metres across and 1 metre high.
Professor Lawrence Conyers of the University of Denver has suggested important people were buried in these monuments, showing the creation of an elite group in an otherwise egalitarian society.
Dr Sutton, of archaeological consultants Virtus Heritage, said the research had been conducted in partnership with Western Cape Communities Trust and Mapoon families.

An interesting comment from an archaeologist re the mounds I filmed....

"Hi Paul -- As a retired archaeologist who has worked on a number of mound sites here in America, they look cultural to me. One of the Civil War sites that I worked on had some fortifications of earthen embankments also had similar features. I've also been involved with managing "Earth Circles" that are earthen embankments that are circular, with openings as well but are of different in style. They also could be waste piles from mining. The trees growing out from them suggest more of an ancient mine than recent, as you so astutely observed yourself. I've recorded hundreds of iron ore mining sites that had circular as well as linear waste piles. But with mining sites, there are usually associated holes in the ground.

They also could be natural. I tested some suspected mounds that also look similar to your finds that turned out to be what are called Mima mounds, pimple mounds" or "prairie mounds" which are natural. Though their origin is still a big question.

My advice is to check with your friendly neighborhood archaeologist whoever that may be. I'm sure that they'd be more than happy to let you know if they are aware of the mounds and, if not, you've just handed them a site lead. I don't know how the Aussies manage their cultural resources, but if it's anything like the US the mounds would have some protective status if they are on public lands.

Although interesting to me, don't expect me to volunteer to come down. I've had my share of spiders, snakes, and things that sting and bite. I've literally had thousands of tick bites and hundreds of fire ant bites. Not to mention countless spider bites, including brown recluse spider bites. One of my former co-workers described me as the McDonald's of the insect kingdom -- over a billion served!

I should also add that I've had brushes with poisonous plants like poison ivy so much that my wife says I get poison ivy from just looking at it. :-)"

Hey Paul! Just I'd throw in my 2 cents worth....I grew up in CQ. My dad was a ringer/station manager, so we moved around a lot and I got to see a lot of the bush throughout the region. As a kid I would spend most of my days wandering the scrub with our dogs and I, with my family saw a LOT of bizarre and awe inspiring things, but all were explainable I guess. We were on a property called New Block, out behind the Blackdown tablelands when I was about 9/10 and I witnessed things from mysterious and very powerful windstorms that seem to come down from the ranges, giant wedgetail eagles, and seemingly impossibly large feral pigs amongst other things. I wouldn't exchange those experiences for anything.

The only incident that ever seemed yowie related happened once to my dad and a couple of other ringers when the ventured up into the ranges to help a neighbour from an adjoining property look for cattle. These blokes were hard men. They worked hard, drank probably too much when in town and had reputations that continue to this day in most country pubs for fighting. In the not so distant past, that meant you were a good, honest, hard working bloke. Not so much these days, sadly. Anyway, they all said that once the got up into the ranges, the "mood" of the bush changed and they all felt it. Being the blokes they were, they kept riding further up.

They noticed the birds quietened right down and the horses became a little white eyed and nervy. Once your horse starts to become nervous (you can see the whites of their eyes, their ears continually move trying to detect every and any noise) you know something is going on. The birds going quiet they put down to their own presence. Any new appearances in the bush is usually noticed by the birds first. What raised the final alarm with them was when the dogs stopped their usual sniffing and running around exploring the new area, and instead....tucked their tails and came right in behind the horses and stayed very close.

So the scene was set. A small group of usually unfazed, hard bushmen on unusually nervy horses followed closely by strangely behaving cattle dogs. They paused for a minute in their ride, rolled a smoke, listened intently, studied the behaviour of both their and natures animals...then decided there would be no point riding on because there wouldn't be anything to find up a head. Haha! They never said they were scared...but they were scared.

Our family has known lots of aboriginal people through the years and some have become quite good friends. When asked their opinion of what may have happened up in the ranges that day, the answers are mixed. Some say yowie activity without doubt. Others say something else. One really old bloke from Woorabinda told us once that his great, great grandfather (and this bloke was old himself, so this would have put his story well before the white man arrived) witnessed a great flood where the water stretched between the ranges at Mt Morgan and the Berseker mountains at Rockahmpton. There stories are/were handed down orally from generation to generation and hardly changed. These days with all the attention dividing technology we have, their stories are becoming lost, but a hundred and more years ago, there wasn't a lot to do around the campfire except retell the old stories. When asked about yowies, this particular old bloke said they were stories told to keep women and children away from certain areas. As the white men came, they were also told, in vain, to keep them away from areas as well. He would elaborate no further than that. He was old and he spoke directly. His answer always bothered me....

A story told for a reason doesn't mean that the content is fictional. In fact, a story told by aborigines of generations ago in the interest of tribal safety was usually based on fact

I can't be sure. As for those earth mounds...

Those mounds you filmed are pretty much identical to ones I have seen around Wowan. Wowan is a small town south west of Rockhampton and the word Wowan is of aboriginal origin and means scrub turkey. There are many mounds around there that look like the ones you filmed as the place was once alive with scrub turkey. Not so much now as they were easy hunting for the locals many years ago.

Anyway....just my 2 cents.

Hey Paul

IMO that single white light in video is a fire fly/glow bug. They are actually classed as a beetle.
I see them at night when camping up around the Barrington Tops/ Allyn River area.
They put out an amazing ammount of light for their size. Besides white light some species glow other colours.
One night I had one land at my feet and put torch on to see it and it was about a quarter the size of a lady beetle to give you an idea of size.

Cheers

Dr Gary Opit writes of the footage

"Definitely looks like the eye shine of an animal & if it was a kangaroo or feral deer or a wild dog one would expect it to move off unless they are so habituated to people that they are unconcerned by someone moving about. Only a confident predator would continue to gaze towards someone moving about. Next time it happens you should approach the animal & see what response you get."

That's what I was thinking approach the eyeshine and look for a response. Continue to the area of the eyeshine to look for footprints or other verification.
Don't know if you go out unaccompanied Paul but not a good idea to approach anything on your own. :shock:

It's not ideal I agree 100 percent but to my my mind it's the only search technique that hasn't been fully fleshed out.

Group expeditions and area searches have yielded little reliable footage.

Trail camera's and multiple camera trap set ups have produced, again little visual evidence.

Drone techniques, whilst still a new method that may in time prove useful, are at this time still too noisy.

Now I'm only referring to visual evidence of a physical biological specimen and not land signs of the creatures existence
tree breaks, foot prints, hair samples, sound files ect...

Most eye witness accounts entail a single individuals experience (again most, not all).
Virtually ALL historical accounts are individual experiences .

So I went back to basics and began going out alone and at night, which from a discovery point of view any makes sense
when you consider the overall description of what has become to be known (in the collective sense) as the "Yowie",
a predominantly nocturnal ambush based upright predator.

Since I began using this technique I am getting better results (not fantastic, but better).
As I keep saying...only time will tell.

What I have noticed in the variables is that temperature increases seem affect chances of a sighting.

Also full moons, bright moons and lunar eclipses
My latest footage was shot after midnight during the ‎31 ‎January ‎2018, maximum eclipse Super blue blood moon.

The next such significant lunar event takes place on March 31 2018 the "Super blue blood moon".

A super moon, a blood moon and a lunar eclipse which will be the biggest lunar event in 150 years.

A blue moon, super moon and total lunar eclipse occur simultaneously only once every 2,380 full Moons or so.

On average, that corresponds to once every 265 years!

I'm still clipping down and finding stuff in the footage, (filmed continuously ,one shot over an hour half) from the
Pine mountain location from which I fimed during that luar event.

The full footage is already posted under the title "Lost in the spider maze"

Cheers

Latest Chuwar Yowie image study.

I have enlarged the facial area and rotated the image into an upright position so that the brow ridge
and orbitals can be studied with somewhat more definition showing in the enlarged section.

PHYSICAL REMAINS, OF THE "YOWIE"
HAVE WE OVERLOOKED PLACES OF BURIAL?
BACKGROUND
The prehistory of Australia is the period between the first human habitation of the Australian continent and the colonization of Australia in 1788 which marks the start of consistent documentation of Australia. This period is estimated to have lasted between 40,000 and 60,000 years. This era is referred as prehistory rather than history because there was no consistent written documentation of human events before 1788.

CLUES IN ORAL TRADITION

YOWIES ARE TRADITIONALY ABORIGINAL GHOSTS.

When a man died his yowie or soul (as distinguished from the dowie or dream spirit, which wandered far afield while the owner slept) haunted the place where he died or was buried. A camp was always immediately shifted after a death, for the dead mans ghost was greatly feared and might work harm on the tribe.

THE DOOLIGAHS

One of the Dooligahs watched the children playing, and as he watched his stomach began to rumble, and his mouth began to water. He made a sign of silence to his companions, and soundlessly crept down to where some children were hiding from their friends. The Dooligah grabbed the children, burying their faces in his long hair so that their screams could not be heard, and ran to his cave where he promptly ate the fattest one, and imprisoned the other two so he could fatten them up for later.
Now, in those days, all Kurrajong trees were hollow, and even during the most severedrought, the Kurrajong always bore plenty of seed high in its branches, and the roots always contained plenty of water. The Kuritjahs met with the Dooligahs and told them of the wonderful Kurrajong tree which provided both food and shelter. The Dooligahs followed the little Kuritjahs to the Kurrajongs, where they greedily ate their fill, and drank the water from the roots and fell asleep deep in the hollow of the trunks.

While the Dooligahs slept the little Kuritjahs sealed up the trunks of the trees, leaving only a narrow crack for the Dooligahs to breathe. Their brothers were now safe, they could have all the food and water they would need, and war would be averted. But the Kuritjahs were still worried. What would happen if a strong wind came and blew the trees down? Or if lightning struck the trees and toppled them over? Or maybe, some day, some foolish man would come along and cut the tree down. The Dooligahs would then be able to escape. And they would be very, very angry.

MYSERIOUS REMAINS FOUND ENTOOMBED IN TREE STUMPS

THURSDAY 19TH JUNE 1906
MYSTERY OF THE BUSH
BRISBANE
WM Loskow a Bundaberg farmer on Bingera estate , while clearing away a hollow tree which had fallen across the track discovered human remains under a quantity of clay in the trunk.The remains consisted of bones, the arms and legs of which had been broken suggested that the body had been mutilated and then passed into the tree through a hole cut about three feet above the ground and the clay had afterwards been through the hole on the remains in order to prevent putrification attracting attention. Apparently they had been in the tree for many years and would have remained undiscovered but that the wind on Monday blew the tree down. The police are investigating the matter.

Constable M Donald stated that on April 28 in consequence of information given he and Mr Briggs of Stratton station, and a man named Brown went to a hollow stump about two miles from the head station. There they found the skill and some bones of a human being, and brought them to Romit.
Dr.Pratt who examined them, stated that they included the skull ribs, two shoulder blades, part of a leg and part of an arm. From appearances the skull was that of an adult aboriginal. The inquiry was adjourned to Surat.

HUMAN REMAINS FOUND IN A LOG

Information was brought to the police at Murramburrah on Thursday that the remains of a human body had been found in a tree near Spring Creek, on Galong run.
Mr. T. E. Pearce, Police Magistrate, Young, accompanied by constable Haughey, proceeded to the spot, and found it a hollow box tree, which appeared to have been blown down within the last two years, a skull, under jawbone, some arm, thigh, and other bones. In the stump of the tree more small bones were dismembered,which showed that the remains had been placed in the hollow of the tree before it had been blown down.

There were also some oyster shells, opossum and iguana bones found with the remains, which appeared to indicate that the human remains were those of an aboriginal buried according to the rites of his tribe. Dr. Temple certified that from the low narrow fore part of the skull and the thickness of the frontal bone he was of opinion that it was the skull of an aboriginal .

THE ALLISON BADEN CLAY CASE

Ive been sitting on this case since it began, however I feel now is the time to post the results of my investigation here.
I am expecting backlash and thats fair enough, I only ask that you consider ALL the details involved and distance your mind from the public outrage the case generated.
The reason for posting this here and now will be revealed in due course pending the outcome of an ongoing and very current case that is strikingly similar and in the same geographical region as the Baden Clay case.

Paul McLeod's GLOBAL MONSTER

8 months ago

Here are notes I took on the case that, to me made the whole affair seem a bit like a placation of the public outrage the case caused but based on a circumstantial case and supported only by the accused's plainly stupid change of story details. The defense plea change even seemed to have more tactical holes in it than swiss cheese.
The autopsy has got no cause of death but lists some pretty extensive post mortum predation by something that left no teeth marks?
Mrs Baden-Clay was reported missing by her husband on the morning of April 20 and her body was discovered 10 days later by a canoeist under the Kholo Creek Bridge.
Her body was found on May 1 in a creek bed at Anstead about 10 kilometers from the family's Brookfield home
"(Baden-Clay) gave evidence that he, his wife and their three daughters were at home on the night of April 19, 2012," it read.
"(Baden-Clay) said that he went to bed at about 10pm, leaving his wife in the living room; the next morning, she was not at home.
It was previously reported Mr Baden-Clay last saw his wife leave their home to go for a walk late on Thursday, April 19.

The screams

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-06-24/s ... wn/5545898

"Dr Flegg heard a 'female scream'
Dr Flegg also said on the night of April 19, 2012, he heard what he would describe as a female scream.
"I'm quite certain it was a female voice," he said.
"It was a single, reverse crescendo in volume, tapering off, and what I would describe as having an involuntary quality.
"[The scream] very strongly suggested a reduced level of consciousness."
Dr Flegg said he heard exactly the same sound about two to three minutes later.
He said he had no doubt about what he heard, but was not sure about how far away it was.
Dr Flegg said he was on the phone to Ms Heath when heard the scream, with his phone showing it to be 10:58pm.
"I said, 'did you hear that?'" he told the court.
Dr Flegg said he went out the front door to see if something was around his house.
"I heard nothing else that evening and that'd probably be the case most evenings," he said.
Under cross-examination, Dr Flegg said his house was at least one kilometre from the Baden-Clay home.
Dr Flegg told the court he "would be extremely surprised" if the noises he heard came from Baden-Clay home".
The car anomaly...
"... after the missing person's inquiry became a murder investigation, they narrowed the timeframe, suggesting one of the family cars, could have been on the move between 11.30pm on April 19 and 4am the following day"
But...
"Dr Flegg said he was on the phone to Ms Heath when heard the scream, with his phone showing it to be 10:58pm...Dr Flegg said he heard exactly the same sound about two to three minutes later.
Making the last reported scream to have accured at 11pm.
Thats a full thirty minutes before the reported movement of the family car still at the Baden Clay home.
Thats an anomaly and I would stipulate that this reported scream occured during the course of Allisons alleged night walk in the area.
"He said that his wife often went for an early morning walk. He said that after a period of time, he attempted to contact his wife, went driving around the suburb looking for her, and finally called 000 to report her missing.
"Following (Allison's) disappearance, injuries to (Baden-Clay's) right cheek were examined. He said he cut himself shaving. Three experts gave evidence that one set of scratches was most likely caused by fingernails."
The Crown argued at trial that the fingernail marks on the accuseds face were evidence of a struggle and that Baden-Clay was under a lot of pressure from his mistress and financial issues with his real estate business when he murdered his wife.
In truth the only evidence used to convict Baden Clay were circumstantial inconsistencies in his own version of events , that he lied or omitted certain facts concerning his wife’s death and was convicted of murder in the first degree due to fairly anomalous but minor scratches to his own face and a small amount of blood found in the victims car.
None the less there are hard facts contained in the autopsy report that do not address how Allison died or how her body came to be 14 meters down an embankment and placed exactly under the bridge structure in deep and thick mud obscured from view and undiscovered for over a week
How did her husband achieve that physics defying miracle of time and space with no vehicle?
The post mortem autopsy report notes the following circumstances.

It was difficult to observe the body because it was UNDER the bridge
The body was laying on an inclined sloped embankment
Access to the body was difficult
14 meters below the bridge and directly under the bridge.
Police had to winch down from the bridge to access its location.
Access to the body was difficult being in thick mud which was hard to walk in.
The body had to be winched out of its location by police
No obvious fractures were noted
There is plant material on the body and in the hair
Two gold rings were on the bodies left forth fingers being consistent with wedding
band and an engagement ring as a set.
The body came to be were it was found within a short period of time following death
The body was subject to post mortem predation but no bite marks were evident (?)
This predation removed much of the face, the neck, the central upper chest, the intermammary region, the left shoulder and upper arm. much of the right fore arm and hand, part of the left hand ,the left thigh, parts of the pubic region, the left thigh and both ankles, the left tibia was thus also exposed by predation. ( her body was torn up under the bridge?)
All of the finger nails of the right hand are detached with two of the left hand finger nails were detached. (seems to be a lot of damage to her nails for such a small set of scratches on his face)
There is no evidence of suffocation or drowning.
There are no injuries consistent with rapid water action.
There is no signs of sexual assault
The cranium and jaw show no signs of trauma.
CT scans show no fractures.
A small chip off one of the bodies teeth may or may not be recent.
Evidence of a subdural hemorrhage may be due to decomposition rather than trauma.
Cause of death is undetermined So somehow between 11pm when screams are heard in the area and 1130pm (police stated times the vehicle was used) that night. The accused is supposed to have killed Allison some distance from her home whilst she was walking, (screaming heard) then carried her body ten kilometers away on foot and then down a steep muddy embankment and placed almost precisely underneath the bridge span (she was not dropped from the bridge) where he tore her body up. Amazingly he managed to make his escape back up the embankment all the while carrying away no forensic traces of the thick river mud on his person?
Can you see why I would red flag this case?

I did in fact locate Baden Clays autopsy report today...
https://aussiecriminals.files.wordpress ... eport1.pdf
Its quite interesting and sobering to read it in comparison to this media release...
http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/queensl ... ztr66.html

I don't buy the husbands guilt based only on his testimony as to how he got certain scratches on his person and the fact that he admitted to having a domestic argument with his wife prior to here being killed.
I think he witnessed what happened and it was so strange that for him to bring it into evidence his sanity would be questioned.
And of course, as is the case for most weird deaths in Australian bushland....no coronial report is released to the public.
In time the answers will come as long as the public remains unsatisfied with official tranperancy.

AN EXPECTED SKEPTICAL RESPONSE SAMPLE

Dean Herde

Paul McLeod's GLOBAL MONSTER so let me get this straight. You think he witnessed a Yowie kill his wife but he didn't want to say anything because his sanity would be called into question. If his sanity was called into question it would be a defense to a murder charge. So do you think he'd rather shut up and let them think he was sane, and a murderer, than to blame it on a Yowie and get off a murder charge due to insanity?
I'm not disputing the existence of Yowies as there are just so many reports of strange sightings by numerous people.
But I seriously am starting to question some of the things you are coming up with.

AFTER READING THE BRIEF

Dean Herde

Paul McLeod's GLOBAL MONSTER thanks for taking the time to respond the way you have. The long winded reply needs no apologies. Shows me that you believe in what you're doing and follow your convictions and I truly respect that. I read the autopsy report and thought that because of the lack of any injury to bones, and only soft tissue, that there was little chance of her having been killed by a large creature though. And Kholo Creek is tidal so the body could've floated to where it was found. Of course these are my assumptions from what I've read and I don't profess to know. Either way though, you have definitely presented some interesting points and looked far more deeply into this case than most others.

ATTEMPTED ONGOING IN SITU PHOTOGRAPHY OF THE kHOLO/ CHUWAR YOWIE
I plan on camera trapping "The thicket" in Chuwar,( not far from Kholo bridge), with six cheap trap camera's that meet my specific needs tacticle and financial needs for the research project.

THE PLAN

Having visited the area a few times and captured pretty good initial evidence of the pressence of Yowies in the area (see video's above listed as either Chuwar or Kholo Bridge) I plan on strategicaly surrounding the investigation site with six cameras that can stay in the feild for an extended time (relativly speaking) in order to TRY and document movements in and out of the area I have nicknamed "The Thicket" near the banks of the Kholo river in S.E Queensland.

Hi Paul,

These theories of yours are inviting massive backlash.

With all due respect, here is another perspective for your research. You think you are researching a killing monster, but what if instead, you're researching a Protector?

The yowie is known to be attracted to situations where a person is in their Bush territory and there is some sort of disrespect occurring and there is trauma. The disrespect and trauma can be to another person or to the land itself. What if the Yowie's primary function is to protect?

You might argue, they didn't do a very good job in the cases of William Tyrell and Allison Bayden Clay, but if one was around, it was because danger was around. A dangerous paedophile lurking perhaps, or a member of the boys own family, and bad old fashioned domestic violence for the latter. Gerrard is rightly behind bars, no need to worry about that.

Paedophilia or another dysfunction, but definitely domestic violence, are the true monsters in these stories.

Paul, you're projecting a monster on the yowie which is unfounded and disrespectful in it's own right, and doubly disrespectful in that your theories serve to exonerate the real monsters. I think you need to take a step back and look at it all with fresh eyes.

THE PICTURE FOCUS SHARPENS TO A POTENTIALY SOBERING REALITY
or
GOING ON RECORD PRIOR TO POTENTIAL TRAGEDY
A Collection of eyeshine EVIDENCE filmed late at night, both in normal color and in I.R, captured on a HDD camera with the addition of high intensity halogen lamp. Indicating to ME the regional movements within a few miles of one another, between Pine Mountain,the Kholo bridge and Chuwar showing potentialy a large creature with forward facing eyes standing over nine feet in height
Pine mountain 2017

Pine Mountain 2018
Exact same area one year later after the rains and plant growth.

A few miles away at Chuwar another big bugger or the same one ranging?

Recently one mile from Chuwar at Kholo bridge, popular with kids and teenagers that bridge jump into the river and fish on a regular basis. This site sits between Pine Mountain and Chuwar . Significant because of the number of deaths and corpses located near the bridge and a number of missing persons cases are also sited in this area.

I also have examples of eyeshine from Lake manchester a few miles away.
Add to this the footage of Chuwar where I captured an active tree snap followed by a definate and anomalous warning roar.

And the potential footage of a weird creature in the same thicket as the roar , snap and eyeshine...

Lastly, footage taken in the early morning of "something" laying prostrate in thick scrub of which I am currently clipping back into a relavent time stamp but can be seen from timestamp 16:59.

Once the weather clears up a six trail camera perimeter will be set up at the Chuwar site.
The cameras have MMS alert capability /I.R capability with video and audio funtion.Hopefully adding to the evidence being accumulated in the hopes of proving my theory of Green Corridor urban encroachment leading to increasing encounters with "the yowie".
The entire localised REGION is the subject of developer pushed land release and housing estates that are sure to attract FAMILIES into the semi rural S.E Queensland.
The question I dread to ask is "Will missing persons cases and strange deaths increase with this development?"
Sadly only time will tell.
Cheers

BLACK

And if you are wrong?

After 2012, as I have stated many times in the past "What do I do with the knowledge of that terrible experience? Nothing?"

Bad things happen when good men do nothing.

I vet every case as best as I can with the available information.
I approach EVERY case causation as initially caused by human action or re-action.
I do not include cases with attached indications of domestic violence, drugs, and SERIOUS mental health issues.
I investigate any possible pedaphelia involvement and eliminate those with poatives (the exception is the William tyrell case and that is based on the initial foster mothers call to 000 and as I found out, the extensive history of reports involving large "Yowies" in the area going back to the 1800's and even the choice and origin of the naming of Kendall)
I look for any signs or M.O indicative to psychopathy or serial killer associations
I'm not a panic merchant, nor am I delusional or sensationalist.
I invest hundreds of hours of background research that may never see publication because it is just that...background research and a
part of a process of elementary elimination by evidence and convergence of know "facts".

I have made mistakes as the Stewart Gatehouse case clearly shows.
Then there are the cases that give my theories credence (to my mind) such as that of Marcus Gormley.

I do all of this ( ALL OF THIS) work for free on my own time, not because I'm a tuft hunter or have an ego but because it truly bothers me as a person that has traveled around the country my entire life, having never really understood the broader aspects of the phenomenon of cryptics in Australia. I am also a father and can FEEL the pain of those that have lost a loved one in truly bizzare circumstances and may never have any chance of catharsis with the experience of loss they have suffered.

If you search out my name/ history or work, you will find NOTHING "Yowie" related prior to West Wyalong in 2012 and my initial post here seeking answers and help ,none of which was forthcoming, and I don't mean that in a negative way, rather, other than Deans TWO experiences there was no research work done from the perspective of potential hazzard.

Now, why would I just up and commit to moving interstate after four years of background research (since 2012 and West Wyalong)
for no financial gain along with potentially destroying my name and reputation with bogus or inept work?

By next year I will be taking anyone interested to the sites that intrigue me for independent evaluation of my assertions.

A Victorian based documentary making investigative journalist team will be doing a full docco investigating my claims late this year
I was approached and accepted and will be 100 percent transparent in co operation with the team. I am at the moment attempting to get the permissions for many other less known researchers to present their own work as well.

I have already stipulated that I will not request any monetary or financial incentives from them.(the film makers)
If I'm full of s#@t, faking or just plain wrong...these guys WILL expose me and I will be finished.

So Black ,whilst I DO respect your POV and others critical of my work, I have been here and other net outlets, exposed, using my real name, phone and contact numbers and background information.

I have never declined to answer a fairly, and politely expressed question. I am vulnerable to sarcasm, as I have said before but also understand the appropriate use of it as a tool of enquiry (hello Wolf old boy).

In the end (and this WILL end) the evidence will speak for it self.

I too am skeptical of many claims attributed to "yowies" for example I do not believe they sound like electrical discharges or emit lights or are paranormal in any way, nor are they alien Didgeridoo playing wise men that have tutored the aboriginal peoples or that they have psychic powers.

Those descriptions are airy fairy research cop outs for people afraid to be in the dark, in the bush ALONE or are essentially Urban city dwellers with white collars sucking in the total AMERICAN media squatch experience, which can have limited commonality with the Australian "equivalent" yowie (meaning or refering to...funny enough...departed spirit). So Bush ape will do me.

I have written long winded replies like this in the past which could be viewed if one could be bothered Black.

Cheers mate
