Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates that the Currickbilly Range, NSW, Australia, in 1912 at night, "A huge man-like animal" in southeast New South Wales approached surveyor, Charles Harper and his two assistants, his fierce hunting dogs retreated whining and one of his assistants fainted and "remained unconscious for several hours."

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Tony Healey, "High Strangeness in Yowie Reports".

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website says that in 1912 at "21:00" in the Currickbilly Range, New South Wales, Australia, "'A huge man-like animal' in southeast New South Wales approached surveyor, Charles Harper and his two assistants, his fierce hunting dogs retreated whining and one of his assistants fainted and 'remained unconscious for several hours.'"

The source indication is a broken link.

Points to consider:

The place is actually "Currockbilly", not "Currickbilly", and "Tony Healy", not "Tony Healey".

The information is so meager that the "huge man-like animal" is hardly identifiable.

But clearly this is nothing related to any UFO and there is no reason to suspect the "huge man-like animal" would be a UFO occupant.
