What was eying the apples in Australia – a Yowie?

Well, some people seem mightily impressed but I’m not. I can’t really makes pointy heads or tails out of this video.

Yowie: Australia’s Bigfoot ‘Caught On Camera’ (VIDEO).

Grainy, blurred footage of Australia’s supposed version of Bigfoot has been published online.

Something – which Jason Heal and Jason Dunn claim is the mythical Yowie – was filmed rustling through the undergrowth in South Queensland on March 29.

The pair – who describe themselves as “Yowie Searchers” says this is definitive proof of the beast – which according to lore lives in the Australian wilderness.

They think it’s a juvenile Yowie. Definitive? NONSENSE.

It’s strange, it doesn’t look like anything and the head and face do not make sense. Plus, their presentation of the piece is suspicious and unprofessional. See their YouTube page where they tell people to “piss off”.

As we know, fool me once, shame on me, try to pass off video as a mystery creature and you’ve got to be kidding… Videos and photos will NEVER be enough. And as usual, there is not nearly enough detail here to make out what it is, if it’s not concocted.

Maybe people will cry that us skeptics are just dismissive but we are just playing the odds. There has not been a Bigfoot found anywhere let alone an island continent of mostly desert. When solid physical evidence comes up, like bones, DNA or a body, then let’s talk and I’ll be right there with you.

Tiny eyes and a strange reflective head?

Tiny eyes and a strange reflective head? It’s the opposite of “definitive”.

    It moves like a hand puppet. You know, like Grover? It doesn’t move like a head at all. It looks almost like a pumpkin with two holes in it being waved around.

    Attention rest of the world! I’m sorry, since we have got rid of our science minister and totally reject anything of fact and rational thinking in Australia these days. You can expect more stories like these to come..

    Again, I’m sorry.

    There is a typo in the title. It should be “eyeing” instead of “eying.”

      That’s debateable. I checked.

    This strongly reminds me of the Pepper’s Ghost effect. I’ve recreated this effect several times in order to demonstrate various “ghostly” videos. This has the same look and feel. It would also help explain why the “Yowie” is illuminated so brightly from a trail cam. (A light would have been used to illuminate an object to the side, so its reflection would show up in the glass positioned, at an angle, in front of the lens).

    Night shot of the “morning visitor” (opacity 50%) overlaying a daytime pic of the same area – http://i57.tinypic.com/nn02sz.jpg

    Creature appears to be partly obscured by a small moss-covered rock or fallen log – whatever it is it most certainly is not “big”. Maybe possum-sized or smaller.

    Motion of the head is similar to that of a barn owl – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLjKqns7Vrw

    Rodents would be attracted to the apples and an owl would be attracted to the rodents. Mystery solved?

      Excellent hypothesis!

    The ‘head’ looks like it was carved out of a pumpkin – does Halloween happen in March down under?

    It is obviously the alien from the 1953 movie “It Came from Outer Space”. It gave me a yowie just looking at it. The motion does remind me of an owl but it is too quick in movement…

    I always wondered what Bill O’Chee was doing after he retired from politics.
    Not a particularly Extraordinary joke, but hopefully not lost on Australians who survived the 1990s.
    (And what do you know, they’ve rebadged that old corker of a schoolboy campfire tale as ‘new’ on Youtube…)
