DON'T blame the Mulgowie Yowie for stock losses.

That is the word from cryptozoologist and yowie expert Tim the Yowie Man. The QT was told by one landowner to investigate the legend of the Mulgowie Yowie after he lost several sheep in a recent attack.

But Tim the Yowie Man says yowies are not known for making flagrant attacks on stock.

"It is very unusual that a yowie would go to an area where there are stock and attack at random. All reports are that a yowie eats just what it needs to survive," he says.

"Most stock losses I would put down to wild dogs or cats."

Tim the Yowie Man said he saw a yowie in the wild in the Snowy Mountains in 1994.

"That is what prompted me to look into the yowie phenomena," he says.

"It was eight foot tall, long arms, no neck, covered in black fur and loping through the bush."

Tim the Yowie Man says Mulgowie is a noted "hot spot" for sightings of the elusive creature.
