I'm becoming quite surprised at the number of local reports of a hairy man living in the mountains. Called a 'Yahoo' in the day but we probably know them today as Yowies. Bredbo is a small village located on the Monaro Highway between Canberra and Cooma but the area sits parallel to the southernmost region on the ACT.
Anyway I find them interesting and I think I'll start a collection of 'hairy man' clippings...
