The animals have, for thousands of Years, been known to the aborigines as the Yowie, or "great hairy man'.
Their physical structure and herbivorous eating habits match those of their overseas counterparts. Even the yowle's footprints are identical to those of' the yeti/ bigfoot.
I am leading an expedition to areas in southern and far north Queensland in June next year in search of evidence of the yowie.
It would be interesting to know if other readers have seen a yowie or heard of similar finds.
