The Queanbeyan Observer, 26th June 1903. [The following is from a letter sent to Gale by Mr. Alex A. McKeahnie of Adaminaby]
We have heard of the Yahoo as long as I can remember, both from the oldest lands and from the Aboriginals. The Yahoo of the aboriginals is a large bird of the mope-poke or cuckoo species...................
As for the "hairy man" or Yahoo, no such animal was known to the aboriginals. Many times have I questioned then when there were large numbers of them in and about the mountains of Cowley, and the headwaters of the Murrumbidgee.
It is utterly impossible that any animal could exist unknown to the blacks..................
