Mr. A. B. Walton, of Granville, remembers, years ago, hering the blacks of the Braidwood district speak of "big pfeller devil" which they called a "Yahoo".


They describe it as being taller than a man, and covered with hair. They had seen it climb trees. On one occasion when disturbed by a party of blacks it seized a gin by the throat and strangled her on the spot. The other natives ran away in terror.

According to the aborigines, the "Yahoo" was only rarely seen, but generations testified to its existence. "I was only a boy at the time", says Mr Walton, "and never saw the creature myself, but I have no doubt from what the blacks said that it is not a myth."
