I read your ancestor's account - great stuff.

I've looked at enough Australian colonial accounts of 'Big Hairy Men' and 'bunyips' to be convinced there is a significant percentage of them that are not hoaxes or misidentifications.

As with Native Americans and the Sasquatch, the fact that Australian Aboriginals know about these beings and include them in their folklore, destroys the argument made by skeptics that all non-hoaxed encounters can be explained away and dismissed as inexperienced people mistakenly identifying conventional animals.
