In a new post at Weird Australia titled “Jerrawerra: the short, hairy man of the woods,” Andrew Nicholson begins:
“In the rugged mountain ranges that rise up from the fertile river plains of the Macleay and Clarence valleys on the north coast of New South Wales, a short, hairy creature the local Aborigines called Jerrawerra was once said to live. In a letter to The Clarence and Richmond Examiner of Grafton on 31 July 1880, a correspondent familiar with the area and the local Aborigines wrote of the Jerrawerra, a creature apparently similar to the Yowie, with one distinct difference, the Jerrawerra stood only four feet high.”
And here’s where you can find Andrew’s complete article, which makes for excellent reading on this fascinating aspect of the wider mystery of the world’s man-beasts.
