Yowies Down Under
From the first time British settlers stepped foot on the island continent, Australia's Aborigines warned of an ape-like creature roaming the country.
Know by the Aborigines as doolagarl, thoolagarl, jurrawarra and tjangara, and by settlers as 'yahoos' or 'youries', the foul-smelling Australian apes are now simply called "yowies".
Do these ape-like creatures roam 'the land down under'? Eyewitnesses such as zoologists, surveyors, rangers and even members of the elite Special Air Service Regiment seems to think so.
Every continent has it's own version of a giant hair-covered ape-like creature. Here in the US they are referred to as Bigfoot, Skunk Ape, etc., and in the northern areas of the US and Canada, 'Sasquatch'.
