|What then is the Hand/Claw?|
Much has been made in the past about a mysterious severed hand/claw that was found caught in a fence by a farmer in Far North Queensland (FNQ). It is the objective of this article to examine the mysterious hand/claw and determine whether it can be identified as being from something other than a yowie.
Background of the Report
The basic details of this report are that a farmer, in FNQ, found a severed hand/claw from an unidentified creature trapped in a fence on his property. It was allegedly submitted to the CSIRO for identification which was inconclusive. The hand/claw itself was finally thrown away due to decay and smell.
