New South Wales Australia
happened on open farmland, which was alongside a rugged national park.
Bungonia is on the edge of the geological Sydney Basin and the landforms
are the result of erosion of the overlaying sandstone by the Shoalhaven
River, leaving mountains and ridges of shale and limestone, caves, and
exposing fossils. The caves, however, are as steep and precipitous as
the surrounding landscape.
There had been a number of lambs killed during the past three weeks with
numbers taken progressively. The rear half of the animal and back straps
had been removed by some incredible sharp instrument. On examination it
appeared that a scalpel had been used.
I would describe the
creature to have been about seven to eight foot tall and dark. It appeared
to have been covered with hair that was quite blotchy in places. It stopped
at one point near a large tree and it shoulders came in line with a branch
which I later estimated to have been about the 6 foot mark. I got the
impression that the creature meant us no harm but did not want us in the
area. Both my mate and I simultaneously got the impression that it had
young and was keeping us away. At no time did I feel threatened and whilst
armed was contented to watch its performance. The creature moved about
on two feet, had excellent night vision and was sure footed in loose terrain.The
weather at the time was cold about 0 -1 C. The sheep had moved into cover
under the trees to escape the frost.
