Hunter Believes ‘Yowies’ — Australia’s Bigfoot — Are Responsible For Missing Persons

“I found interest in cryptozoology back in 2012 after reading an article and I‘ve been hooked ever since.”

There’s a hunter in Australia and his name is Jason Heal. We’re talking about him because every weekend he searches the bushland around Perth in hopes that he’ll find a “hairy sub-human cryptid.”

“They are not homo sapiens, they’re not monkeys or apes, but they have a primate face but are more human-like,” said Heal. “They vary in size. You can have small ones the size of a child and bigger ones that grow up to 11 feet which have been seen in the Blue Mountains.”

During an interview with Perth Now, Heal expressed his thoughts on what the Yowies/Bigfoots/Sasquatches eat in the area.

“They will eat anything: berries, plants, kangaroos, snakes, wallabies, and roadkill.”

These Yowies have quite the appetite — hungry enough to eat humans, too.

“There are a lot of people who go missing in the bush and the cases remain unsolved and it is usually put down to a homicide,” said Heal. “But I think some of these are the work of Yowies.”

Heal also believes that the Yowies have been here for millions of years, and even longer than Indigenous people have been roaming around.

“If you look at every culture around the world they all have their own version of yowie, whether it is the yeti, sasquatch; there has to be something to it,” said Heal. “Australian Indigenous elders know about them for sure. It’s part of their folklore and they have passed down stories of their existence over thousands of years but keep it quiet.”

He also mentioned that the government knows about the existence of Yowies, and it’s just that they keep it quiet — along with many other things — from the public. For one thing, it would be terrible for tourism.

“If everyone knew they existed they wouldn’t go camping anymore.”
