When the “Finding Bigfoot” team traveled to Australia to hunt down the Yowie, a hairy, bipedal creature thought to be Bigfoot’s Australian cousin, they weren’t sure what to expect. According to Cliff Barackman, Bigfoot expert and team member, the Australian investigation which aired on Dec. 30 turned out to be the best single investigation in 20 years.
Sticking with the format used for American Bigfoot hunts, the team met with natives in a town hall meeting at a local pub to determine when and where recent sightings had occurred. Although there were a host of eye-witness reports, two stood out as extraordinary.
One report involved a peeping Yowie who reportedly stole and dismembered goats, while the other involved a rude awaking to a man sleeping in his vehicle. Other reports included similar reports to Bigfoot sightings. Read more details of the two accounts in ‘Finding Bigfoot’: Chasing Yowies in Australia.
During the course of the show, the team did four one-night investigations, but only one of them brought the results Cliff proclaimed as the best single investigation in 20 years.
The team set up investigation in a wooded area.
When Cliff clapped to try to elicit a response from the Yowie, he got a response almost immediately. To test that it was not a coincidence, he repeated the clap and received a response – but that’s not all. A second clap was heard as well. Cliff believes that not one, but two Yowies responded to his efforts to communicate. The response was repeated several times.
In a separate segment, James “BoBo” Fay, Bigfoot investigator, thought he heard voices. Upon investigation, no humans were found in the area, leading the team to believe the “voices” were actually Yowies communicating with each other. According to the team, Bigfoots have been observed exhibiting the same behavior. Although words are not evident, the sounds appeared to mimic or resemble the human voice.
The night ended with what sounded like the uprooting of a tree, again behavior the team has observed on American Bigfoot investigations. They theorize that uprooting or downing a tree is Bigfoot’s (in this case Yowie’s) final show of power for the night that signals all interaction has ended.
Whether Yowies lurked in the woods just out of sight of the investigators or someone was playing an elaborate hoax is unknown – but the “Finding Bigfoot” team believes they encountered Bigfoot’s cousin the Yowie in the wilds of Australia.
