Casino and Kyogle Courier and North Coast Advertiser - Wed 30 Aug 1905 A HAIRY MAN".

 

Some excitement has been caused at Euehareena, near Molong, by the circulation of a rumor to the effect that a hairy man, or gorilla, had been seen in the depths of the bush there. Well known residents report having seen the fearsome-looking object.

 

A youth, who unconsciously rode up in close proximity to the animal, received such a start that he started for home in record time. He has no doubt that the animal is a gorilla.

For years past strange sounds have been heard in the thick scrub close to where this animal was seen, and a project is now on foot to form a search party and solve the mystery. What with the existence of Tantaloona tigers and other curious growths in the animal world, the Australian bush is rapidly assuming the character of a menagerie.
