Indeed he did!

My point is, I see this an entertainment. I have no idea if Serpo is totally false, partially true, or anything else. It's fun to read, though.

This is a bit tenuous for the Yowie board, simply because the Yowie gets a mention. Would love to know who the 'local Yowie expert' is/was... ANYWAY, here's a short article from 2016 in Humpty Doo, Northern Territory. I also think it's a bit of a reach to say the tree damage was due to UFOs, but read for yourself.


"Humpty Doo gardener baffled after forces from above kill trees

JILL POULSEN, NT News
July 9, 2016 8:21pm

A BAFFLING case of dying foliage has a Humpty Doo man questioning what’s been lurking in the skies over his 2ha rural property.

It was just under a week ago when Mike Mewett first noticed patches of leaves on trees on a roughly 100m
section of the property were dropping.

“It’s so strange, it’s not the tree that’s dying, it’s like there’s something been dropped on it from above,” he said. “To me that’s the only logical explanation, unless we’ve got aliens around here.”

The NT News visited Mr Mewett’s property and witnessed the triangular shaped section of trees where parts of a tree’s branch had completely died while other leaves on the branch flourished. Mr Mewett, an avid gardener, said he’d never encountered anything like it.

“We sometimes see a light aircraft flying in the area ... maybe it dumped some fuel,” he said.

Mr Mewett’s Humpty Doo Property is less than a kilometre from where Brisbane UFO hunter Erik Black spotted a “thing” floating above his head in 2010.

Mr Black described the UFO as “shaped like a hamburger, with black dots” and “weird-looking headlights”.

Several recent sightings of similar, round orbs hovering silently above Humpty Doo have also been reported to
the NT News.

A local arborist said that without inspecting the damage on Mr Mewett’s property, it was hard to say what the
cause was, but said it definitely didn’t sound like a virus.

“Sometimes lightning strikes can cause damage like that but if it spans 100m it wouldn’t be a lightning strike,
plus we haven’t had any lightening,” he said.

“It could be a reaction to a chemical... it certainly does sound strange.”

The rural area is also known for its Yowie activity, but a local Yowie expert, who asked not to be named, said
there was "no way” the damage on Mr Mewett’s property could be put down to those creatures.

“It’s far more likely to be a UFO than a Yowie,” he said.

“It’s far more likely to be a UFO than a Yowie,”

This quote is magnificent.

Personally, I think people get overexcited and conflate the two things because...well, just because. I doubt there are any aliens visiting the Earth at all, much less 'Heinz 57 varieties' (some of whom happen to be Sasquatches). That's just me, though, and I can't prove that opinion is correct, because it's only an opinion. I think that UFO sightings are to do with the military testing out high-tech prototype or experimental aircraft, new kinds of weapons or new surveillance equipment of some kind. Sometimes the military stuffs up, and someone sees them when they weren't expecting it.

I think all sorts of really weird stuff happens in the world, and that there are people in authority whose job is to actively conceal it (or to muddy the waters so the actual truth is never widely known). I wonder if they'll leave their filing cabinets in an op-shop one day?

I'm not sure there even is any rational explanation for all of it. There are things beyond the limits of current human understanding and they happen regardless of us. Sometimes people see them happen. The more I learn about 'the paranormal' the less I know for sure.

That's not to say that there couldn't be aliens, or even Serpo, etc. It's just me saying that I doubt the explanation for UFO's is as cut-and-dried as aliens arriving in spaceships and depositing Yowies in the hinterland. The truth may be much, much stranger than that, for all I know...but I tend to think it's the military messing about with their massive budget and creating various high tech equipment because that's just what they do.

I think that Yowies are perfectly natural creatures who are able to do things we cannot, and which we cannot even imagine. That's how they elude observation so successfully; we don't even know the half of what they're capable of. Do people see and feel various things in the presence of a Yowie due to their own 'fight or flight' response, or for some external reason? Do they secrete pheromones that alter our perceptions? Is it infrasound? Who knows? Maybe it's all of those things combined, or none of them.
