COBALT -- Old Yellow Top, the half man, half beast that is supposed to be roaming the wilds around the Cobalt Mining Camp was reportedly seen again, this time by a woman and her son, who live near Gillies Depot, while they were walking the tracks into Cobalt.

The woman, who did not want her name made public, said that she spotted a dark, hairy animal with a "light" head ambling off the tracks into the bush near Gillies Lake. She said she did not get a closer look at the thing but said it walked almost like a man.

The sighting is the second such report to be made since 1906 or 1907. A search party may be formed to try and find "Old Yellow Top."
