Mysterious Australian Critter Called Out As Tree Kangaroo
Cordial manufacturer Arthur Marrin killed the mystery critter during a routine cordial delivery outside of Braidwood, New South Wales, Australia, in 1893. Described as tan, hairy, four feet long, and weighing in at seven stone with a face like a polar bear, the beast was killed by Marrin after startling him during his delivery. Marrin's grandson, Lawrie St. Hill, is insistent that it was not a yowie--or Australian bigfoot--but was most likely a tree kangaroo.
