When the Yowie Turns Violent!

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 24th, 2012

Over at weirdaustralia, there’s a new post that begins:

“Mostly, encounters with Australia’s Yowie are fleeting. A glimpse of a large, hairy animal running upright through the bush and disappearing behind the thick undergrowth, the sounds of heavy, thumping footsteps, thick tree branches snapping like twigs – and then silence. As a clear sign of intelligence in the elusive creatures, Yowies it seems, prefer to keep a wide berth from their human cousins … but sometimes, encounters become far too close for comfort, and sometimes turn nasty. This week, weirdaustralia reports on when Yowies attack!”

Yep, the big hairy thing from down under has a dark side to it…

    I suspect that at least some alledged attacks by Yowies can be attributed to another extremely fierce but lesser known Australian predator, the drop bear.

  2. YarriWarrior responds:

    Thylarctos? Sounds more like Thylacoleo….

  3. Garrus01 responds:

    I rather doubt that drop bears are responsible for the attacks. As every non Australian knows, drop bears are an ubiquitous part of the native fauna of Australia (all of which, up to and including the rabbits, are trying to kill you), and therefore expeditions into the bush are best undertaken wearing protective headgear made out of combination of tinfoil and colanders. Given the common knowledge of the ferocious drop bear, it is highly improbable that a Yowie could be mistaken for this quasi ursine menace.
