Richard Saunders

A Random RANT! With Dr Paulie

Stories of people being terrified by Yowie like creatures go back decades and had their heyday in the 1970s when it seems some here in Australia were somewhat jealous or maybe inspired by the reports coming out of North America. It was a golden age for UFOs, Psychics such as Uri Geller, the Loch Ness monster and BigFoot sightings. All good fun at the time and as the years went by interest both here in Australia and in the USA tapered off. But not completely.
