I'm with you 100%. The F&B, chimpanzee, Homo Naledi, Gigantopithicus brigade can argue their case till ''the cows come home'' but until they come up with a dead Yowie or Bigfoot (never going to happen) then I will never be convinced.
I am pretty sure there have been dead ones found in their physical state , whether that is flesh and blood or whatever. There is a report in forum I think , or maybe elsewhere . Tried to find report but can not find atm.
Anyway report was of 2 people going for a bush walk somewhere near Evans Head NSW and they come across a dead creature fitting the description of a hairy man. It was reported to authorities and then some unknown persons in black suites drove up from Sydney , I think it was , and took the body and nothing was ever heard of it again. If anyone knows link to this Evans Head incident please post a link. So if all is true then another example of probably government covering things up.
So lets say this did happen then the physical body would have been definitely examined but I can not see that any examination would find any evidence of hairy persons spiritual/interdimensional/invisibility ability or whatever you want to call it.
I found the Evans Head info. It was in part of a post made by Dean on 28/6/2007. Interesting post. Link to page below.
received a report from Evans Head where an elderly couple found a dead one in a creek. They called the Police who in turn called the Campbell Street Fed's and the body was taken away without another word mentioned. A farmer in Taree dug up a massive amount of bones in the late 70's. The biggest Human like bones he had ever seen in his life. He phoned the Police. They in turn called...... who knows........ people in trucks turned up. The man wasn't allowed back on his property for a week. The area was "cleaned" and he never received any answers. He passed away only a few years ago and always spoke about it till the day he died. He said it was like a massive burial site for giants
Hi TheBlackStump, the bones found on the property at Taree led me to this story as well.
It was posted on the 30.03.16 in this part of the forum, titled George Gray's journal.
Also there was a post way back on the 24.09.12 p.15/54 tilted ' Wallabadah manuscript 1903 ',
The recollections of William Telfer jnr. In this report Telfer refers to an Aboriginal elder- Bungaree of Gunedah
who describes another race of people....'at one time there was tribes of them and they were the original
inhabitants of the country'.
This quote got me thinking about another story I came across a few years ago.
It happened many years ago on Micalo Island in the mouth of the Clarence river.
I'm guessing the spot is along Oyster Channel somewhere, which feeds into Lake Woolloweyah.
I'm writing this with respect to Aboriginal culture and an awareness of the attitudes of the early settlers in those days.
The story/quote is by George Gray and comes from research by the Clarence River Historical Society.
The title is 'lime burning and the aboriginals ' from George Gray's journal. He was born in 1846 and lived
for most of his life in the Clarence valley.
He says that in his early married life; which is the only piece of information to provide a clue to when
this incident happened, he worked as a Lime burner on Micalo Island in the mouth of the Clarence river.
He lived there for a while with his family and had some men working for him. Going by his birthdate/married life, this
incident may have taken place around the 1860's-70's. He died in 1941.
I'm quoting exactly what the text says. The only thing I did was break it into paragraphs to make it easier to read.
' then I took a job lime burning. We found a heap of oyster shells away from the usual place where they were worked.
The heap was 60 yards long and 10 yards wide and 8 feet deep. It was evident that at a distant period an oyster bed
was in the channel, which is now only filled with the tides, and at that distant period the aboriginals used to feed on
the oysters and they built up the heap as I have stated.
On top of the heap oak trees were growing- one was three feet in diameter, that proved that it was hundreds of
years since the blacks used to feed there. We felled the trees to burn the shells and after we got well into the heap
we found numbers of skeletons of aboriginals buried there. We would find in places seven or eight in a row and it
appeared they were all buried at the same time. Then a little further we would come upon another lot all buried the
It was evident that a disease must have raged among them and many died at the same time and were buried in rows
as stated, which was contrary to their custom as they always buried the dead in a sitting position.
The bones were the largest I have seen of a human nature. The skulls were much thicker than that of any beast I have
seen, their shin bones like horses and their teeth like horses also. This as I have stated must have occurred hundreds of
years ago. All the bones were well preserved, as the shells contain salt it kept them clean and they could be seen to
phew....that last paragraph is a doozy ! This story creates a lot of questions. Who were these people that are perceived
as human but with some difference. Not one or two but multiples of them. I couldn't help but think of Bungaree's
' original inhabitants ' from the Wallabadah manuscript. That's if you want to put a bit of flesh and blood into the
Just say they dug half way down into the midden, this depth alone would make the skeletons at least a few hundred
years old or maybe well over a thousand years, at the time. This puts them outside the time period of catching European
diseases, so what disease could have killed them as George speculates.
He doesn't describe them as being different sizes such as male, female, child, so one would assume they are all male and
if this is the case you would think tribal warfare as stated by Bungaree. But what larger stronger group gets killed off by a
smaller one unless it's less intelligent, capable or less in numbers.
George quickly changes from seeing them as humans to beasts when he describes their skulls as being much thicker than
any beast he has seen. Does he mean thicker than a horse, bull, rhino or lion.
Could human bones become distorted or swell up over a long period of time buried in a midden and then after George has
a few rums at lunch time and fumes from the fire end up as some kind of hallucination on a hot afternoon in the
mangrove swamp. George seems to know exactly what he is looking at and how he is interpreting it.
I've read other parts of the journal about his life in Grafton and he doesn't seem to be one to embellish his stories or
dramatize things. If you drive over Oyster Channel bridge towards Yamba and look up stream you'll see some nice
waterfront homes that could be sitting on some interesting history.
What did those men see that day all those years ago. I wonder if the lime burners showed any respect for the dead by
covering them back over or did they just shovel their bones into the fire, just to end up as mortar for new buildings in
