Mysterious tall creature reported In Pennsylvania

A new Bigfoot case was made available March 29, 2011, after paranormal investigator and author Stan Gordon interviewed a witness from an incident that occurred in Butler County, Pennsylvania, March 18, 2011, between Chicora and East Brady.

Gordon investigated the encounter March 21. Chicora is a rural area about 45 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

Gordon is the author of the recently released Silent Invasion: The Pennsylvania UFO-Bigfoot Casebook – the incredible case notes and investigator’s behind-the-scenes look at the hundreds of UFO and Bigfoot reports that were reported primarily in southwestern Pennsylvania in 1973 and 1974.

The new case Gordon reports on today is very similar to accounts received throughout the Pennsylvania region over many decades – an unusual creature crossing a roadway and seemingly not interested in the motorist who happens by and watches.

On March 21, 2011, I was contacted by a witness who reported having an encounter with a very strange creature during the early morning hours of March 18, 2011. The incident occurred on a rural road in Butler County between Chicora and East Brady. The witness, a businessman passing through the area, stated that “this was the freakiest thing I ever saw, and it made the hair stand up on the back of my neck.”

The man told me that he was driving down the road when from about a qurter-mile away, he observed something on the right side in a grassy area. His first thought was that it was a deer. The driver stepped on the gas to move closer to get a better view. From about 50 yards away, he observed something that appeared to be hunched down, and then stood up. The driver then observed a very tall muscular creature.

At this point, the driver had his high beams on and watched as the creature walked in front of a yellow reflective road sign, then crossed the two lane road in three long steps and continued into a wooded area. What he saw was a humanoid figure that stood at least 8 feet tall that appeared to have smooth leather-like skin that was of either a darker tan or light brown color.

The creature never looked at the witness, and was only observed from its side. The head appeared to be flat in the front section, and then rounded out. “At the top back of skull, it was like one of those aerodynamic helmets. The top was not quite a point, but looked like a ridge on top of the head.” The face was flat, and the eyes were not clearly defined, but the man thought that they might have been pointed in the corner. The ear that was observed on the left side was long and flat, and came up and back and was pointed backwards like a flap.

The arms were muscular and a little longer than that of a human. The hands looked more like a claw, but the number of fingers was unclear. One physical trait that stood out was the extremely muscular legs. The witness stated that it was hard to explain, but the legs did not move like that of a human, and “looked like they bent backwards.” The witness also saw what appeared to be wings on its back which were tucked into its body, with the wing tips extending toward the side of its head.

No unusual sounds or smells were noticed during the observation which was estimated to have been about 7-8 seconds. As the motorist approached the location where the creature entered the woods, it could no longer be seen. The next day the witness decided to drive back to the location of the encounter to look for any evidence. The ground conditions were not suitable for tracks, and nothing was found. The witness did, however, measure the road sign that the creature had walked in front of. The sign was just over 8 feet high, and the head of the creature was estimated to have reached about 4 inches above the sign.

A Canuck puts his bigfoot down on myth

Hold onto your beef jerky. We’re about to start messin’ with Sasquatch.

There’s been a lot of nonsense to come out of Canada (this column falls into that category), but the legend of Bigfoot, also known as the Sasquatch and said to reside in the Rocky Mountains of western Canada, takes the nonsensical cake — a cake which calls for a lot of lies in the recipe. Two eggs, not one.

According to an MSNBC story last week , a Shelby, N.C., man emailed WCNC NewsChannel 36 in Charlotte saying that he had captured video of Bigfoot running across a road into the woods.
The man was quoted as saying “it smelled like a cross between roadkill and a skunk,” which is an absolutely groundbreaking detail to know about a creature that doesn’t exist.

In fact, that is such an incredibly specific description of an odor, which not many people could readily identify with one flare of the nostrils. The only people who can detect such a scent in a five-second span are generally the same people who have claimed to see Bigfoot, devote their lives to proving Bigfoot’s existence or have an obsession with men with an ungodly amount of chest hair.

The man also offered insight into what he believed was Sasquatch growling or snarling at him (or perhaps it was the collective sigh of humanity?) while he shot his video.
If a snarl and a smell don’t finally put an end to the longstanding Bigfoot debate — is it a bipedal humanoid or a husky man in an ape suit?—then what can? People are convicted of felonies in this country on less evidence.

In my experience, ape suits (and therefore, by logic, husky men) are much more common than bipedal humanoids, so I’m still calling shenanigans on Sasquatch.
But on the off chance that I’m wrong, I’ll assume that Bigfoot does exist for a moment, which then begs the question: What was the mythical creature doing in the foothills of Charlotte so far away from its presumed home in the Rockies?

That would be like the Loch Ness Monster being spotted in the community swimming pool, the Abominable Snowman sipping on a pina colada in the tropics or Justin Bieber straying from his cage at Usher’s house for extended periods of time.

The point is that legends have established natural habitats.

And Sasquatch is Canada’s nonsense to protect. There’s no other explanation for this supposed sighting.

Bigfoot certainly wasn’t on vacation in North Carolina. Who wants to take a trip to visit Charlotte’s Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden?
Please, don’t mess with Sasquatch’s home now. He (she?) is already stressed enough as it is because you keep hogging all the Jack Links Beef Jerky.

Bigfoot film-maker sues New Hampshire over free speech

www.bbc.co.uk

An amateur film-maker who dressed as the mythical Bigfoot creature is suing the state of New Hampshire after park rangers told him to leave a mountain where he had been engaging with hikers.

Jonathan Doyle’s friends had been filming him on Mount Monadnock.

He argues the state’s requirement that he pay for a permit and get a $2m (£1.2m) insurance bond before he can film violates his free speech rights.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is backing Mr Doyle’s lawsuit.

“The underlying activities are humorous, but the principle’s important,” Jon Meyer, a lawyer representing Mr Doyle, told the Associated Press (AP) news agency.

He added: “We don’t believe there’s any legitimate government role in regulation.”

New Hampshire state officials have not commented on the case.

‘Socially engaging’

Mr Doyle said no complaints had been made to the state park service in 2009 when he first dressed as Bigfoot, traversed Mount Monadnock, then took off his costume and interviewed bystanders about what they had seen.

“People loved it. It was socially engaging,” the 30-year-old told AP.

But when Mr Doyle announced he would head back to the mountain on 19 September last year, Monadnock park manager Patrick Hummel brought it to the attention of his supervisor in an e-mail entitled “Bigfoot problem on Monadnock… not kidding”.

Mr Hummel then intercepted Mr Doyle during his next outing, barring the film-maker and his friends from filming and requiring them to obtain a permit.

“Jonathan Doyle started this thing with nothing but good humour and intentions,” said Barbara Keshen, a lawyer for the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union. “But it does have serious overtones.”

Both Ms Keshen and the state of New Hampshire filed motions in court on Tuesday.

Mr Doyle is seeking attorneys’ fees, nominal damages and to be given the opportunity to film on the mountain without obtaining a permit.

Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, is a humanoid creature said to wander the wooded wilds of the Pacific Northwest.
