Yowies or Poltergeists and the Boys in Blue

Forum readers, I can assure you this amazing encounter of the supernatural vs police force is factual. This account came from my son in law who spoke directly with one of the policemen involved a few months ago.

I won’t go into too much detail for obvious reasons. So let’s place my son in law at a country Victorian police station having a long talk with a member of the force. The State Forest is not far away and became a topic of conversation.

My son in law told the officer of an experience that took place over a year ago when he was walking home late at night along a lightly used country road that borders thick scrub. He suddenly heard footsteps in the bush along side him, seemingly just metres away and following his movement along the road. He called out ‘who’s there’ several times but there was no answer. After a time, the footsteps ceased. Now this lad normally doesn’t scare easily. He has even been known to take on a group of bikies in a pub…so he can take care of himself. However, he said this scary experience in the dark of night really freaked him out.

Back to the cop shop and the conversation. The officer said they get many reports of strange things happening in the bush. He then began to relate his own encounter.
Three officers who were good mates and keen shooters decided to go deer hunting for the weekend. They packed their gear and pointed the 4WD towards the mountains. They went up past the snow line until they arrived at a hunting lodge where they planned to spend the night.

They soon settled into the lodge and it wasn’t long before the sun went down. In the evening, they were relaxing around a warm fire when suddenly a barrage of stones started raining down on the roof. The three policemen ran outside looking for the prankster. There was no one to be seen, so they all went back inside.

It wasn’t long before the rocks started raining down again. This time they grabbed their high-powered rifles and torches and did a complete perimeter search looking for footprints in the snow. Again they found nothing and these hardened law enforcement men were beginning to feel uneasy in this isolated bush environment.

Now it gets even weirder! As they were walking back to the open door of the hut, a biro pen materialised in the air and floated slowly through the open door and into the cabin. That was it for the boys in blue! They were clearly dealing with some force from another realm that they could not deal with, so in a panic, they quickly grabbed some essential gear and leaving their food on the table, high tailed it out of there as fast as they could.

Their fun weekend away was now a shambles with nothing except bad memories of a frightening evening. And more was to come. No one was saying much as they were driving down the mountain. Approaching a small country town they slowed down before briefly stopping at an intersection. As they did, stones began to rain down on the 4WD! As one might expect, there was more freaking out by this group of policemen.

To this day one of the officers will not talk about the experience at all and gets visibly upset if it is mentioned. I will say again, this is not made up, it actually happened.
So what was it? I have heard of Yowies throwing stones to warn people they are not welcome in the area and also have read many accounts of stone throwing poltergeists. The floating pen leads me to believe it may be the latter. Any thoughts?

Yowie most likely have the same capabilities as Sasquatch. Sasquatch are shapeshifting paranormal people who are normally invisible during daylight hours. They can follow the vehicle by turning into their orb form. I am not sure where they can get a bunch of rocks to throw, in a brief second. But when they do throw rocks, the rocks do not become visible until it has left their hand and is sailing towards it's target. I suppose that they could have grabbed a bunch of rocks and travelled alongside the vehicle while invisible as a 3D being in another dimension. And then nailed them at the stop sign.

Perhaps it was a pen-ultimate warning to them that they were on biroed time. Sorry.

That’s gold, Dave…! You may have missed your true vocation. :) A sense of humor doesn’t go astray when you’re trying to rationalize events like this.

Neal, thanks for your explanation. Would really like to see some proof of what you are saying. At the moment, it’s a bit ‘way out’ for me. Was hoping that a good old fashioned bush poltergeist would be the culprit.

I have witnessed a poltergeist (German word for noisy ghost) first hand many years ago. I went with a TV crew to this haunted house which was all over the news at the time. The house would have ‘rappings' all around it, inside and out. Sure enough, when I was there, something caused a loud ‘bang, bang, bang’ on a side wall right in front of me. And of course there was no one there. No one visible, anyway

They were just playing! The trick with the biro makes me think they were probably not hostile at least in a violent way. I think they know very well how amazed we are by those kinds of happenings. They don't have to show their powers to get you to leave in a hurry that's for sure, I think they all found this situation incredibly hilarious.

Interesting story Searcher. I can understand it holds weight for you especially when you're hearing it from a reliable source.

I have a belief in both Yowies and the spirit realm, however unlike a few members here, I don't think they're interrelated at all.

By your account I'd say it was a spiritual haunting. Would be interesting to find out whether the land was sacred aboriginal grounds, or whether there was bad history relating to that particular cabin. From my personal experience, there are a sh*t load of haunted colonial structures/cabins/ruins in the Aussie bush.

My thoughts precisely. I believe for every report that suggests a paranormal aspect of a Yowie/Sasquatch sighting you can find at least 100 reports of them exhibiting the normal characteristics of a real, live animal that has perfectly adapted to its environment over tens of thousands of years. Weight of numbers wins!

IMHO, the floating orb theory for Yowies is just a figment of the over active imagination of its adherents. There is also the scenario of someone who wants to profit financially or to gain public notoriety (read fame) by taking the way out alternative viewpoint in forums and TV programs.

And by the way, there is a new camera just out that may be excellent for filming evidence of the hairy man. It's the very reasonably priced Nikon Coolpix P900 with an 83x optical zoom! This will just about show a Yowie on the moon. :D Perhaps macquariedave can tell us if it really is that good! Check out the video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfshAzV0FN4

"You're gonna need a bigger tripod".
Don't know about this one - I have (amongst others) a Panasonic DMC-FZ1000 (no Yowies captured yet) http://www.panasonic.com/au/consumer/im ... z1000.html.

Totally agree. This sounds spiritual. I would even go as far to say that it could have been connected to one of the officers especially if it followed them. Could be the guy who doesn't talk about it. Could have been a warning for them to leave the place.

I believe in Yowies and agree with both Searcher and Ranger's pionts of view in there post's / comments on this forum it seems to me that if you see something thats anywhere from 8 to 12 ' tall built like a cross country athlete has hair nearly covering its whole body with attitude and is flesh and blood its not a chook /poltergiest or could even fit itself through a porthole or turn into an orb of light . I have a rather large IQ and have found the need not to try and use big words to baffle other people on this forum with bullshit law talk or science fiction hyper summerising what has been seen by other members of this group.There are i believe some very cridible members that post here about flesh and blood events please don't even try to insult my intelect by suggesting what i have seen can turn into a ball of light you no who i am talking about .Ok got that of my chest .

I can't seem to get a handle on the idea that yowies are supernatural creatures that can make themselves invisible or speak telepathically. Seems to make them out to be some type of super powered being.
Yet they are so primitive.

Definitely don't think it was yowies throwing rocks and doing pen tricks. Also don't think because a police officer said something that it is gospel. I have known a police officer who told a lot of fabricated stories that's why we don't go fishing with him any more.

There seems to be a lot of folks who are convinced that Bigfoot/Yowie etc are beings that can traverse dimensions via orbs or whatever. After reading some books on this aspect alone its hard to totally disgard the concept but its very hard to believe at the same time.

I'll just sit on the fence for now.

Completely agree with Tex about that. After all, Police are human and despite their training, have many of the foibles that afflict the rest of society. Perhaps the difference here is the extra credibility of the multiple witness scenario.

Hope it’s a big, strong fence, Chris. Reckon there would be quite a few bodies on it!

Perhaps it’s worth thinking about the principles of Occam’s Razor which suggests the simplest answer is most often correct. And surely a bush animal most easily fits that criteria.
However, when experienced researchers like Rusty can’t be sure, maybe you better leave some room for me on that fence… :)
