I’ve been hanging onto this for a long, long time. I didn’t tell anybody about it in case they thought I was a looney.


I was 19 years old at the time and I was with my boyfriend at the time in his HQ Holden. He had stopped to answer the call of nature about halfway up the mountain. While he was outside the car, I saw this thing striding down the hill. It wasn’t coming towards us, just down the hill. Because it was a moonlit light, I could clearly see it.


It was this big hairy thing just striding on its way down. It would have to have been at least 8 or 9ft tall, it was huge. It was a big hairy thing. It was solid and the legs were like tree stumps. The arms were longer than a Humans. The size of it was larger than a human. It was solid all over and it had no neck. I’m 110% certain on what I saw.


My boyfriend was still outside the car, and I was yelling for him to get in the car. It was like a scary movie. I never went back up there.


I didn’t speak to anyone about it because they probably wouldn’t have believed me.


I’m sorry I can’t help you with any more details than that.
