My brothers and sister saw it as well. There were 3 or 4 of us on the first time. We were picking oranges and filling our gumboots with them, then putting them in a billycart. We were heading back with a couple of dogs. We were walking past patches of trees and limestone rocks as we walked, when suddenly there was a roar. The dog came racing out yelping with its hairs up on its back. We could just it move, just like, the shadow of it in the bushes and we took off then. My sisters and younger brother took off home as fast as we could. It didn’t follow us.




Then another time after that, there was Dads tractors shed that was about 500 metres from the house and pear tree’s about 40 metres below the shed. Dad was in the shed working on the tractor and we were out picking pears and we heard a noise in the shed and we thought Dad was still in there.


So we (two older sisters and brother), started walking towards the shed, and this hairy thing walked out of the shed! It came walking out on two legs.


This was about 10am in the morning.


It had fairly long brown hair on it. About 6ft tall. Leaning forward a little bit as it walked. Kind of walking like a man, but pretty large. We saw it from side on. It was pretty solid.

So we hid behind and watched it walk down the hill, then we took off home.


All four of us saw it. It would have been only 30 metres away when it was walking out of the shed.


My Father and his brother went looking for it but didn’t find anything.


Later, my brothers were out hunting and they found tracks that were larger than any man.


On another occasion while hunting, I also saw a Panther.
