Yowie sighted at Bexhill in northern NSW
A Yowie has been sighted on Bangalow Road, just north of Bexhill by a Lismore resident.
The witness said the creature moved across the two lanes of bitumen, raising his arm to apparently shield its eyes from the bright high beam glare of the approaching car.
"I would have seen it for between 20 and 30 seconds," the witness recalled. "It was really moving at the time. It leapt the fence no problem. All I can remember was seeing this large black object with a solid build, lanky legs and long lanky arms.
"It wasn't clothed ... it wasn't wearing clothes like a human."
The witness said the creature ran with a fast, stooped pace. It had high shoulders and almost no neck and a small head.
"It was like its head was shrunken into its shoulders."
Sydney-based yowie researcher, Paul Cropper, said the recent sighting revealed some "classic" elements which provided a common thread linking many experiences by many people over many decades.
"The fact that this thing was heavy set, with long arms and a small head ... these are classic traits," Mr Cropper said.
The area where the yowie was seen has a long history of similar sightings with stories running in the local paper, The Northern Star, since the 1800s.
