Yowie Photographed in 1936?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on August 29th, 2014


Is this an actual yowie captured on film?

I remember seeing this picture as a kid and it put a chill up my spine. Recently the image has re-surfaced on a now defunct Australian television show entitled “The extraordinary” Taken in 1936 at an isolated bush area in NSW the image may well be the only clear picture of an Australian yowie, our own equivalent of a sasquatch. A new image study sheds light on features of the photograph not seen before.

    This is a hoax photograph . Two different photographs have obviously beeen spliced together. The background and the light are different in the two sides. There is the added question of why neither the two men in the picture nor the photographer noticed a giant sitting just a few feet away from them. Furthermore, the musculature of the so-called Yowie is neither that of a powerful animal nor of some kind of wildman, but rather that of a bodybuilder. The muscles aren’t natural , but sculpted and built through exercise.

    Fascinating…a blobsquatch from 78 years ago. Why would those two men be sitting there with no apparent concern about being within arms reaching distance of a huge creature like that? Obviously they’re not concern because there isn’t a huge creature sitting next to them. This image is most likely a play of light and shadows and imagination. Where is the creature’s face? Why are the creature’s details not visible while the two men are defined – if slightly out of focus?The images also looks as though some enhancement has occurred of the years. It’s also sad to note that Bigfoot photography hasn’t progressed much in almost 80 years as the majority of today’s crypto-images aren’t much better than this one despite technological advances.

    Well, you know, me personally, I’d rather we be following up on the evidence, which pretty clearly says there is something going on that needs explaining, than dredging up old photographs that most folk, including this folk, are gonna dismiss.
