A woman’s claim that she encountered a yowie on a country backroad has been backed up by locals saying they’ve also seen the beast.
The mythical creature was supposedly sighted at about 7pm on March 5 in Uki, New South Wales, at the Mr Jerusalem National Park.
The woman gave a detailed description of the alleged yowie which Dean Harrison, from Australian Yowie Research (AYR), shared to his Facebook page.
After a woman claimed to encounter a yowie on a country road back road at night other locals have backed up her claims that the mythical beast is in the area
Locals have been quick to throw their support behind her claims.
‘I absolutely believe this. I lived in the uki (sic) area at the base of mt warning for more than 15 years. I also had an encounter with the hairy man back in 2006 , it was in my backyard,’ one user wrote.
‘I am an aboriginal elder, a Senior Law Woman. I lived in the area for 4 years and I can tell you that there is definitely a presence of the hairy ones there,’ another user added.

Others simply posted that they ‘believed’ the tale however another Indigenous resident to the area also posted about an encounter.
‘I believe you, I’m an Aboriginal man and I grew up in the woodenbong (sic) area,my grandfather,a tribal bushman often told me stories about the Yowie when I was growing up,’ the user wrote.
‘There were other sightings in the township of Woodenbong in the 70s and 80s by White people as well as Aboriginal people. The Yowie has been in my culture for generations and I’m now in my 50s and I still believe that the Yowie exists.’

Dean Harrison from Australian Yowie Research (AYR) has been studying the mythical creatures for 20 years
Mr Harrison documents his data in written and audio witness accounts, news articles, images, and physical evidence, the Northern Star reported.
The supposed sighting was recounted on the AYR site and explained how the woman claims she came across the hairy creature.
‘It was after cricket training around 6.30pm and I was driving along a dirt road and went over a cow crossing before I pulled over to an area that was bulldozed and the trees were pushed down on the side of the road to do a wee,’ the woman wrote.
‘I finished my wee when I heard something around me and wasn’t sure what it was.’
The woman then decided to howl to see if it was a wild animal hiding behind the trees.
Shocked at getting a response back to her howling, the woman continued to howl until she ‘got a growl and a grunting’.
The woman pulled out her cricket back ready to take on whatever was hiding in the bush, thinking it was just some ‘smarta** playing a joke on me’.
‘It knocked twice, so I knocked back twice. I knocked again, and it did the same back. I thought stuff this and did a howl and a scream – that’s when everything went pear shaped.
‘I heard thumping coming down the hill…I’ve never heard anything that heavy before, it was like the ground was moving underneath me.’

The mysterious creature was suddenly 10 metres away and was growling and grunting as it made its way towards the woman, she claims.
She quickly jumped into her car and turned on the lights and was shocked to see what was standing in front of her.
‘It was 6 to 7ft tall and full of hair – about 5 inches long – and it had hair down its cleavage and hair around and on top of its breasts. Its eyes the size of golf balls and its hands were huge reaching the knees.

‘It was the scariest thing I’ve ever seen.’
Flashing the car’s headlights on the beast, the woman noticed that it had ‘reddish-blue eyes’. It also had a beard and hair over its top lip, she says
‘It had a big mouth on it…this mouth was 5 to 7 inches long’.
The creature remained in front of the car swaying side-to-side before it ran away before the woman was able to capture a photo.
