Tucabia sighting

Unread post by Tuckeroo » Mon Dec 05, 2016 4:58 pm

I got excited this morning by a story in the Grafton Daily Examiner concerning a Yowie sighting at Tucabia Nor-East of Grafton.
I usually avoid these tabloids but do look occasionally on-line to see what may be going on locally........if your lucky.
So I thought, wow ! a sighting in this area in the last few days, thisalbe interesting.

Upon further reading I noticed there was no real detail of the sighting, date or time etc. just that a farmer saw something
big and black stomping through the bush next to his Mango tree.
Then the journalist rehashed the story of the sighting on Centenary Drive Grafton back in 2011 and used it to pad the story out,
after also mentioning a Tucabia sighting 3 years ago. They didn’t say when, but it seemed like it was in the last few days
but it wasn’t.
Nifty journalism to fashion the words like that to make the average reader think there had been a fresh sighting in this area.

Seems like they trot these stories out and do a bit of cutting and pasting around chrissy to stir things up a bit.

Tucabia is right next to the Candole State Forest where AYR member rodbenfield59 had an encounter a few years ago.

The new Pacific Highway will cut through or skirt the edge of Tucabia and Candole State Forest so it’s unfortunate
this Yowie habitat may be disturbed. Who knows, some of the construction workers may come across something.

In today's age more and more people are waking up to the journalistic lies for a quick grab at a headline, good to see.

I am sure the journalists have a code: There is no news like shifty news.
