A truck driver from Queensland, Australia claims to have had a rather harrowing encounter with the proverbial 'Bigfoot of Down Under' known as the Yowie. The unsettling incident reportedly occurred this past November as the man was making a morning delivery. As he was driving through a remote forested area, he turned a corner and suddenly saw what appeared to be a boulder rolling down a hill, which led him to slam on his breaks to avoid a dangerous collision.
However, when the 'rock' came to rest in front of the man's truck, he quickly realized that this was no rolling stone as the oddity seemingly became untucked, so to speak, and revealed itself to be a huge hairy creature that stood on two legs. According to the witness, the beast looked to be around nine feet tall, since its navel was flush with the hood of his vehicle which sits six feet off the ground. The man's close proximity to the creature allowed for him to get a great look at the Yowie and he noted that it sported a small head atop an oversized body entirely covered in hair that looked to be around two inches long.
As he was eyeballing the creature, it would seem that the beast was doing the same to him and didn't like what it was seeing. Echoing similar Yowie encounters from the past, the creature soon turned aggressive and slammed its hand down on the hood of the man's vehicle. Remarkably, the driver observed that the monstrous mystery animal "was so tall, he had to reach down to hit the truck" and let out a menacing grunt before striking the blow. Apparently content with having sent some kind of message to the stunned man, the creature then took off and disappeared into the nearby woods.
