Hi Dean. I don't think ayr is bogus. I was actually pointing out that ayr is not bogus but do understand why newbies or skeptics would think its odd with the tree knocks etc. I do think yowie researchers would have encounters and cant see why they wouldn't, especially if they were researching in a no go zone or yowie territory which is likely.Dean Harrison wrote: ↑Fri Aug 17, 2018 11:45 amYowie Bait, AYR doesn't do bogus anything. We simply Report the Encounters directly from the Witness. There are countless which never make it to our Site.
Paul Cropper conducted the main interview for us. I have personally had several personal follow ups with the Witness. He seems genuine.
It was a case of 'Careful of what you wish for'. As some others have previously and correctly said, warning bells arise when someone already had prior knowledge of the Yowie.... then something happens. In this case, according to the Witness, it was precisely what happened. He had taken a detour deeper into the forest and pulled over for a call of nature. He then took this opportunely whilst out of the car to make some curious noises, in which he says, sparked a response, then the rest pursued as stated in the Report. He went on to say in further conversations that it smelt like 5 day old road kill.
The area does have a History. There is an Aboriginal Elder who has made several comments on our Facebook regarding Uki and the Yowie that were quite insightful.
The story is unique in terms of the description being a female Yowie with breasts and a beard. As mentioned there was the 1977 Woodenbong incident (Jean Maloney), where she said "Yes, he was a male alright" (and was clearly quite impressed), and the other being Geoff Nelson who I had interviewed. Geoff laughingly commented "Well, lets just say, he certainly had nothing to brag about". Most Reports state Male Yowies, so again, this is rather unique.
I can think of maybe one other aussie encounter where breasts were mentioned and quite a few where they mention a visible penus.
When i spoke to Paul Cropper, he did ask about genitalia, i didnt want to elaborate on it but did say i had seen its penus which was hard to miss actually and i remember my mate describing it to his parents/ family when we got back to camp. It wasnt overly huge but in proportion to its body.
Cant say if it was circumcised or not but doubt it was and was kind of human looking. I was more concerned about getting away than checking out the goods. I think you could relate to that. Who cares about the penus when you think your about to get ripped to shreds!!
