Tourists at Stromlo Forest Park have reported another “Yeti” sighting whilst hiking through dense bushland.
Sven Eriksson and his wife Lena spotted the mysterious creature as they approached an opening in the dense scrub.
“We saw what we first thought was another hiker. Then we realised that this was no ordinary tourist like us, as he appeared to be very tall and hairy,” said Mr Eriksson in an exclusive interview with The Canberra News Digestive.
“I managed to snap a picture on my iPhone, but I am sad to say it is very difficult to see anything.”
The notorious Stromlo Yeti has been reported to authorities several times in the past, but there has been no photographic evidence until now.
In 1998 a group of teenagers reported that a strange creature approached their Kombi van as they were parked in an isolated area of Stromlo Forest Park. The teenagers reported that the creature fled when they switched on their headlights.
A lone hiker in 2007 reported being chased by a “7 foot supernatural being” whilst foraging for mushrooms in the area.
Scientists have long theorised that Yeti’s are a mutant breed that live somewhere between homo sapiens and Neanderthals on the genetic tree.
