DATE:    January 10, 1996 

TIME:     3:00 PM 

LOCATION:   Far Northern Queensland, Australia

TERRAIN:    Dense wooded area with water source close by. Dense timber and rain forest area. Mountainous area. 

OBSERVED:    I came across your site and thought you might be intrested...About 10 years ago we got called to a distress 50 year old female who was 4 km along the walking track of the Barron River Falls/Power Station walking track. We attended and walk to the location on foot. We located the distress female shaking uncontrollably and was in 'shock'. I telephoned her daughter from a ranger phone, who arrived at the location. We stayed on the walking track for about thirty minutes comforting the female. I learnt from her daughter that her mother did not suffer from any illnesses or mental health problems. Her mother was an avid walking, who walked the track everyday for the past five years. She lived in the suburb of Carvonica, which was 1 km from the location (Entrance to the walking track). The daughter stated that this was unlike her mother. We managed to get mum out of the track and back to the carpark. The female had settled down and was able to speak. I remember he stating that she was walking along the track on her own, when she observed a large 'creature' to walk from right to left from the bush across the track to the opposite bush land. She described the creature as very tall, with matted dark brown hair, she described it's face to be dark and she could see any features. She described the face to be like 'dark leather'?. She stated the creature was walking down hill and made a lot of noise breaking branches. She said she panicked, as she was alone. She stated that she had a 'panic attack' and was unable to breath and yelled out for help. She was originally found by another walker who telephoned us. I do not doubt this females encounter and I still think about what she told us to this day. This female was transported to the hospital and I don't know what happened to her after this incident. I spoke with local Queensland Police in the area who stated that they had heard of several encounters of a similar nature.

Activities of Witness:   The witness walking in daily fitness regime.

Description of Creature:  Large creature with matted dark brown hair, with face like dark leather. Creature covered in thick matted hair.
