Animal Planet TV Crew Capture Audio They Believe Proves Yowies Exist
SEARCHING: An artist's impression of a yowie and a plaster cast of a suspected yowie footprint ... will the visiting US film crew turn up evidence to prove its existence?
Published: 1:21 PM - 05-26-12

A US television crew has recorded what it believes is compelling audio evidence of the existence of yowies.

The four-member team from Animal Planet's Finding Bigfoot series were on an expedition through remote forests spanning the Queensland and NSW border when they made the recordings.

Bigfoot Field Research Organisation member James "Bobo" Fay said that of the more than 20 expeditions conducted around the world by the TV team, this was "maybe the best one as far as audio recordings".

While he was reluctant to give details ahead of presenting their evidence on the still-to-be-completed third season of the US show, Fay said that in two different locations they had activity that they had attributed to a yowie - the fabled ape-like creature of the Aussie bush.

"We got some really compelling audio," he said.

"It is not a known species, I can tell you that. One of the details (convinces us) there is nothing else it could have been."

Their discovery comes as scientists from Oxford University and Lausanne Museum of Zoology are preparing to use new DNA analysis techniques to determine whether creatures such as yowies, Bigfoot, Sasquatches or Yetis exist.

The European scientists have asked other scientists, museum curators and Bigfoot tracking groups to share samples thought to be from the mythical ape-like creature.

Bryan Sykes, of Oxford University, told the Associated Press the research group had already received offers of samples to test, including blood, hair and items supposedly chewed by Bigfoot.

Fay is still "stoked" with having captured the Australian yowie sound on tape.

"When at first we all heard it, we were like "No way"," he recalls.

"If you were in North America, you could have written off one of the compelling things we heard as being a large bear. But there are no large bears here."
