I find it interesting that all aboriginal history, from everywhere in the world, has stories of human/animal beings.

It makes me wonder if our egos and our belief in our superior intelligence may be helping us miss what may be right in front of our faces.

I think we should take a lot closer, and less bigoted look at what the oldest and greatest civilization have to say about it.

That was a good watch.

A couple there I had no knowledge about.  Learnt something.

Considering they reckon the aboriginal culture extends back 40,000 years then some stories of creatures, whether passed in story telling, song or painting is credible.  Who knows what other odd animals were about back then.

I have one song here at home written out for my daughter (5 at the time) when she went to an aboriginal school in the Tanami while we lived there (20 years ago).  The song relates to a crashed UFO and the subsequent description of the being recovered from the wreckage.  They said it's a true story.

Kind regards,

I have a friend who was some sort of ranger in Australia. He lived in Albany, but roamed the Outback. He told me once that some tribal elders showed him a bird's wing feather that was around 4 feet long.

Australia is a big place, that still has a lot of empty places, There might be "things" still out there.

.
“The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative. The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him the walls of his prison are invisible, and he believes himself to be free. That he is not free is apparent only to other people.”

We hear often of overpopulation, but there are still huge expanses of unpopulated land on this planet.

I am sure there are many living things still out there that are smart enough to stay hidden from man.

The latest 'Cryptid' from Down-Under!

Quote:I was stalked by terrifying ‘dog man’ monster in Aussie bush and have picture ‘proof’, bloke bizarrely claims

'A man has bizarrely claimed he was stalked by a terrifying "dog man" monster in the Australian outback
-and even says he has picture "proof". The fisherman, called John, wildly claims he was left "petrified for a
month" after encountering the supposed "half-dog, half-human creature" on two separate occasions.

Speaking on the Believe: Paranormal & UFO Podcast, the Aussie insisted he was "followed" by what he
has branded a "dog man" - and claims he "thought he was going to be killed".

[Image: attachment.php?aid=10369]
The Dog-Man.

John was fishing from his kayak on Boxing Day last year when he says the first incident happened.
"I noticed that every time I took a stroke with the paddle of my kayak, whatever this thing was, it was taking a
stride to each paddle I was taking," he said.

“I stopped for a bit and the sound stopped in the bush too, and I thought it was a bit odd.
"So I took off paddling again, and sure enough as soon as I started to paddle every stroke, this thing would
take a step. "So whatever it was, this thing was following me, it wasn’t a coincidence or anything. It was more
of a stalk." Freaked out, John took a snap and claims he captured the "dog man" on camera.

“The creature, I actually got it in the photo, what I think it is - I’ve spoken to a few people - and I reckon it’s a
Dog Man,” he added. “After that I couldn’t go back to the area to check it out by myself, I was petrified for
probably a month after it. "I was waking up in the middle of the night and seeing the creature in my dreams."

Although he was "petrified", John once again returned to the bush for another fishing trip and says he heard a
"bit of a bang" followed by the sound of someone - or something - running.
“As it was running, it was smashing trees out of the way," he added.

"I don’t know if they were breaking or it was hitting them, you couldn’t see what the bush was like because it was
so thick. John said the "dog man" then started to "roar" as he spent 10 minutes trying to escape back to the safety
of his car.

'TERRIFYING'
“I’d never heard anything like it in my life,” he said. “It would roar, and then it would take a breath in, but then the breath
it was taking was actually louder than the roar it was doing. “This creature just went to another level and it was crazy.
I could hear in my head something saying, ‘go now or you’ll die’. It wasn’t my own voice, my own consciousness, it
was something else.

“That 10 minutes was probably the longest in my whole life, I thought I was going to be killed. I had no weapons, didn’t
even have my fishing knife, no phone service.” Despite his outlandish claims, John has insisted he's not barking up
the wrong tree with his suggestion of a "dog man" existing - and fears someone could "get hurt".

"I’d heard about it (the dog man), and thought it was a joke, but actually I’ve had encounters with it now and it’s terrifying,"
he said. “I wouldn’t be putting myself out showing these photos if it was a fake, or I didn’t know that there was actually
something there.

“That’s the main reason I came forward, I’m worried that someone’s going to go missing or get hurt, and I’ll have it in
the back of my mind that I should have told someone about that.”...'

Maybe it's my old eyes, but I just can't form a dog, or a man, or a dog-man out of that shadow in the bushes. On the other hand, I wasn't aware that dog-men were a thing elsewhere beyond North America, the British movie "Dog Soldiers" notwithstanding..

I need to get out more.

Cheers for the update.  I tried doing a bit of research on this.  Would like to know the location, river and nearby localities.  I can't make the object out.  We have very large grey male kangaroos where I live.  Some stand head and shoulders above most.  Not common but do see them, even on my selection, every now and then.

I'll get ribbed for this, but, have on occasions seen large deer. (Not native here).    After the fires here 2 years ago a lot of fences burnt.  Loads of cattle and stray horses coursed through the area and now the bush has regenerated you occasionally see them in the bush.  Big wild buggers. 

During my research I can across an Aussie U-tube site named "Where's my Yowie" .  Never heard of it.  Mentioned an incident back in the years of a wild thing seen in the bush at my locality, Nymboida NSW.  Made the local rag back them.  Seems locals back then dismissed it as a large roo.

I can say I have come across a large buck roo in the shallows of the creek on my driveway.  Although very close we stopped and stared at each other.  He stood head and shoulders above me.  I backed away cause they an get angry when protecting females. 

Thanks, I'll keep looking for this dog man location.

Kind regards,

Bally :)

One of the main problems is the media take these sightings as a joke -even though they are fully aware of their potency
with their readers. Often, a mundane political story gets past over by the reader/viewer for a more upbeat article as the
one above, but because of lack of MSM background investigation and fear of ridicule, it's merely tossed in like many unusual
tales that the public offer and delivered with a tongue-in-cheek aspect to the writing.

And due to the clamour for ratings and sales, hard-headed facts like location, dates and names are forgotten... important
features that would not only give credibility to an article, but also give the impression of trust from the reader to the medium
such stories are acquired.
Sadly, the cake is lost because it's believed the public only want the icing!

What ever it is, or they are, they are humanoid. 

Actually smarter then us because they can live off the land and remain hidden. They are one with the Earth, much as dolphins are. We, as humans, need technology to survive, where as they don't. 

I know, crazy thinking, or is it?

If it's accepted these things exist, their continued existence is based on far-more than just an intelligence similar-or better,
than humans. The beings we call 'Bigfoot' don't 'survive' out in the forests, that's our term that we perceive them as and this
compounds an assumption that they are animal-like.

With a shaggy outer-coating, a lack of what we would accept as a domicile and an assumed failure to use fire, degrades
the idea that they are 'enlightened' in the manner we accept. Humans tend to think that if no animal wear clothes, they
therefore are lower in the ability to acquire and apply knowledge along with skills.

But if comfort or protection from the elements is so important in survival, why do some birds not migrate to warmer climes...?
Why do sea-creatures not bask in equatorial waters throughout the year? In the animal kingdom, food is top of the list along
with procreation. So naturally, animals will -at times during functions to succeed in these needs, come into contact with humans.
This is deemed opportunistic and holds no long-term planning or engrained principle. 

If avoidence with humans is paramount in their continuation as a species, the clues to human presence can quickly be merged
into a collection on a very base level. But does a falcon avoid being seen by a human? Does a whale flee from the sound of a
human swimming in its domain? No.

The simple answer is they don't trust us, a sign of intelligence far beyond the animalistic alarms of danger. It indicates a virtue
within the Bigfoot species that derives from self-awareness that we -only, believe we possess. 

We've convinced ourselves that man came from ape and any side-branches died-out because we either destroyed them or
they just weren't good enough to survive. We construct, we destroy, we invade, we conquer. We pretend to be guardians of the
planet and we do it alone because we walk upright and contemplate the atom.

Imagine if -contraptions and machines aside, another species knows what we think of ourselves and uses it to remain hidden.
It's not about trail-cams or listening devices, these are just implements that humans use. It's the very presence that a human
has ventured into their area that is significant to them. We're noisy, we perceive the world from our position and ergo, incapable
of putting ourselves in their large shoes!

They make 'mistakes' just like we do, but their inquisitiveness is soundly bridled by the belief that their freedom would be lost
by making themselves known. Now how could such a conviction be absorbed into an entire species unless it was part of their
natural continuation?

They know us and they know what we can do to them. An animal doesn't think on that level.
