Event: Glowing Eyes Sighted

Date: 2001

Time: Night




Hey Dean,


Before I tell my story I wish to inform you that I myself am quite a sceptic when it comes to most forms of paranormal activities, Ufos and crypto zoology.

I do however find it interesting.

I spent the first 18 years of my life in Coonabarabran and after googling the
town the other day there were a few mentions of yowies.

I myself had a great childhood/ adolescence getting up to all the mischief country
boys do, which involved lots of time in the pilliga riding bikes and more so for myself, shooting. I've spent thousands of hours in the bush at day and at night. The only unexplained event I witnessed is as follows.

It was a winter night at my old mans property 15 km north of Coona in 2001. Dad myself and my younger brother were out spotlighting, which we did almost every Fri/Sat night in the cooler months.

The 800acres we shoot on is surrounded by the Pilliga on three sides. Dad was
driving, my brother and I were on the back of the ute with the gun an spotlight.

We had driven through about one quarter of the property when the spotlight picked up a set of eyes in the scrub on the other side of the boundary.

Under the light the eyes looked like those of a fox, bright orange, however they were above the fence, so they appeared to be 5 or 6 feet off the ground. No worries possums eyes look similar.

I'll never forget what happened next though. The eyes remained fixed on us, stayed at the same height off the ground and ran off down the fence line for about 200m.

It was too far away to make out any shape of the animal at all, but I have never seen anything else like it.

I usually reserve this story for trusted mates after a few beers but I thought I would share it with you guys
