Possible Bigfoot In Westmoreland County?

Westmoreland County, PA
I recently got this report of what could have been a possible Bigfoot in Westmoreland County, Pa. Over the years there has been numerous reports of Bigfoot in Pa.

Here is the report.

- Start Report - 

Name: Jessica
Email Address: On File
State: Pa
County: Westmoreland
Date of Sighting: Feb 2008?
Time of Day:
Nearest Town: Grapeville
Length of Sighting:
How many Witnesses:
Any Photos/Videos: Used to be
Describe sighting in detail:

We take our dog around the side to the back of the house to relieve himself.  One night I took him, a purebred German Shepard.  The backyard is very dark, no lights.  He stopped right at the edge of the light from the street, hackles went up from tip to tail.

He began a very low, deep growl and began backing up.  It scared me and caught me off guard.  I asked him what was wrong as he was pacing like a lion in a cage would do, his gaze fixed on one spot.  I began shaking, wondering if we were about to be attacked, by what?  I hadn't a clue.  My ears were filled with my own fear so I don't remember hearing anything but my dog growling.  I yelled, "I'm going to let him go and can't be held responsible for what he will do to you!"

Then my dog, proving me a liar, turned tail and ran to the front.  How I kept up, I still don't know.  He got to the front door and pawed and whined at it until we got inside.  I told my hubby, but got the usual "you're crazy woman".

It was forgotten about until two days later when we had a few inches of snowfall overnight.  I went to our dining room to look out over the backyard to the snow and noticed a very odd line of tracks.

They were long, three toed, with broad steps.  It appeared to be made by something with 2 legs the way they were laid out.  I know bunny tracks, I know cat and dog tracks.  These looked nothing like those. They were too big, toes too spaced out, too deep.  Even my hubby was stumped.  We did take cellphone pics, unfortunately those pics were lost with the phone.

 I'd forgotten about it for a year or more, until our local community college, WCCC had its first ufo/bigfoot conf.  There I met Stan Gordon and on his display table I was so excited I couldn't speak!
The exact same tracks we had witnessed!  I asked him where he got those, and truly sounded like a babbling idiot.  He perked up when I told him where we lived.  Then he proceeds to tell us about the great Bigfoot scare of the 70's in Grapeville!  I nearly fainted!

 I've never seen those type of tracks since.  The only other time our dog acted like that was in Grafton WV camping in my moms trailer.  He fixated, growled, paced and I couldn't get him to come til he turned tail and ran again.  I immediately ran inside and locked the door.  Whether it was a bear or bigfoot, I really didn't want to encounter either alone.  Just thought I'd share, thanks!

Thanks to Jessica for the cool story. It sure sounds like you might have got a visit from a Bigfoot. It's a shame the photos were lost.


Thanks

Attempt To Return To Game Cam Spot Of Bigfoot Photo


Okay, so after releasing my Game cam photo of Bigfoot, I got some "good job" comments and some negative comments but someone made the suggestion that I return to the spot or something to that effect.

So when I recently went out to set my game cams and do a little field research I thought I would attempt to find the exact spot I had the game camera.

It's been about 2 years now and I have been in this general area many, many times but trying to the exact spot proved to be a little difficult and some what frustrating.

Here is a video of my efforts.



While this is not the exact spot, I do think it is very close. The next time I'm in there I will attempt to find the exact spot again. I think I will be able to find it. 

Some of the other comments about the photo included the trigger distance of the game cam and the best I can remember it is 50 feet. Some commented that the figure appeared to be small but you have to consider it was a pretty long distance from the game cam, it was turned slightly, and partially covered by foliage. I attempted to show the height of the Bigfoot by using a simple method, and the figure still appears taller that me and I was much closer to the camera. I'm also about 6 foot 4 inches tall.

Then a few people wanted to say it was a bear and it is clearly not a bear. There is no snout and the arm is more human looking that a bear arm. The figure also has high cheek bones, just to name a few things.

I will keep working the area and hopefully get a better picture or video in the future. Thanks to all those who give supportive comments and for those who support us by viewing our videos and visiting our websites.


Thanks

Bigfoot Field Research - Strange sound


While out doing field research and setting up game cams on 4/18/15, I had an unusual event happen.
I have never had any howls or whoops in this area. I have had a few things that were easy to identify - like a owl or squawk of a bird.

This was opening day of turkey season and on the mountain across from me someone fired a shot gun twice and then a let out a loud yell of excitement. I'm assuming the person got himself a turkey. Well, during this time I was setting up my last game cam, I was just finishing up and on my side of the mountain, up above me and to the right, came a very odd sound.

The best way I can describe it is that it started out sounding like an owl and as the sound continued it turned into a coyote sound. I did have my GoPRO camera running at the time but I have the water proof housing on it and it didn't pick up the sound. So, what I did was quickly get out my hand held camera and sit down and hope it happened again. Sadly it didn't, but I have created a short video of the events as they happened. This was my reaction right after the sound.



Of course, I'm not claiming the sound was made by a Bigfoot but I really don't know what made it. It was odd that the reaction came after the shot gun was fired and the loud yell was made. I do know that there was no one on my side of the mountain, there was no other cars or anything around. This area is also not a public area or anything. In fact, it is the outskirts of the state park and I would think hunting on it is not permitted at all. 

It's kind of weird that for around 2 years now I have not had any sounds that I could pin on a Bigfoot. Maybe, this was done by a Bigfoot...... I think I will set out some sounds recorders ....see what I can catch.


Thanks

Bigfoot Field Research

A nice little stream
I finally got a chance to get back out in my research area, an area I like to call area 1.
It had been about 3 months ago that I was in this area, so I was ready to get out there.

This took place on 4/18/15.

Of course, the mountains are always beautiful and being out there alone just seems good for the soul.
My purpose of going out was to set up several game cams, scope out the area to see if any thing new had happened and the other reason was to attempt to find the exact spot where the game cam was set when I got the picture of the bigfoot. There will be a separate post about that, this is just a general overview of some of the area and some of what I did.

I thought it would be best to just share a quick video to should you some of the area and some of my thoughts.

Here is the video.   



Thanks

Unusual Bigfoot Item

Cool item.

Back about 2 weeks or so ago, I was searching on ebay for me a bigfoot t-shirt because all I really have is the TCC ones. While doing some searches I ran across an unusual bigfoot item. It was a homemade, hand written and stapled together bigfoot book. It only contained 36 pages and has pictures that were ran off on a printer and pasted into the book. The book documents a family's Bigfoot sightings and their own efforts at researching the creature and finding evidence.

Needless to say, I actually purchased the unusual item and now have it in my collection. I thought  I would share some of it with our readers and supporters.






Here is a page from the book. Under the photo it says "the landlord's cattle fencer. I saw a bigoot step right over the fence." The book has several photos of "nest" and even some pictures of  tracks and food gifts left out.











Here is another page and if you click on the picture you should be able to read what is written above the photo. I have to say, I have enjoyed the little book. It is pretty good reading and I like the fact it is unique. 









 

The very back of the book is filled with questions. Questions that are attempted to be answered in the book.

This all happened in the fall of 2001 in western Kentucky.
Best I can make out the book was written by The Zion Family.

Towards the end of the book they talk about UFO over the cattle fields and mutilations.

They also talk about some other books they written that was sold or published.



I have never heard about this family or this Bigfoot book but I have enjoyed it and will add it out my small archive of Bigfoot stuff.

I just wanted to share this weird little find I stumbled upon. If anyone has more information about this family or these reports, I'd be glad to hear about them.

Thanks

Real Game Cam Photo Of Bigfoot! (Update)

Yes, this is a real Bigfoot.
 (Please note: © Thomas Marcum, all rights reserved, no reuse without permission. Sharing the post and video is fine.)

Ok, I know this has the potential to get bad feed back but I have finally decided to release the game cam photo I got of a real Bigfoot. I have never released it like this but it was in my super low budget documentary Bigfoot Tracking A Legend.  To really get the full story and how this all came about you need to watch the film, it is on youtube and on Amazon.com.

First, let me be clear that the date on the game cam is off. This was the first time I had used this particular game cam and it was new. The photo above was actually taken sometime in late Aug. in 2013.

I know the photo itself my not convince anyone but if you add up the sightings, the tracks I found, the stick structures, the broken limbs and the personal experiences I had while researching in this area, then it might.  I know it is a Bigfoot

I guess it would be easier to tell about this in a short video ...so I made one and offer some info and the before game cam photo. I will still share some of the enhanced photos below.

Here is the video:



I still research in this same area. There still seems to be some activity from time to time.






Here is a enhancement of the game cam photo. Part of the Bigfoot is hid due to the small trees and the leaves.












Here is one more picture of a height comparison I did. The Bigfoot is 20 feet or more behind me and it is still taller than me. I'm right at 6'4".

The figure is clearly not in the right side of the photo. It's not Pareidolia.

 






So, when people say you can't get a game cam photo of Bigfoot, I can say yes you can but it is pretty difficult and you have to have some luck.

So there it is ...for better or worse.....I know its not the best photo but at least I know it is real. I still research this area and hope to get video of a Bigfoot or at least another game cam photo.


Update: - Just to be clear this is not some random game cam photo.  I base my opinion on it being a bigfoot on several things ...it's based on 3 sightings, over 30 tracks, numerous tree breaks and structures, remoteness of the area and 2 years of research in the area and more.
Some are already saying it's fake and and some are saying it's a bear .... well it's not fake and we just don't have 7 foot tall bears in Kentucky. Yes, the photo is low quality, it was taken at night and it was overexposed. It a cheap game cam (about $60-75) ...so all those who are complaining ...feel free to sent me one of those $500 game cams or paypal me the money. I can even understand more now why real researchers don't share much of their stuff. Oh well, what can ya do.  



Thanks

2 Bigfoot Sighting Reports

Another Bigfoot sighting in New Hampshire

I have 2 Bigfoot sightings to share. They were submitted by the same person but I will post them in a way to keep confusion down.

Here is #1 that happened in New Hampshire.

- Start Report - 

Name: Mike *******
Email Address: On File
State: New Hampshire
County: Grafton
Date of Sighting: August 2012
Time of Day: 10:30 pm
Nearest Town: Bethlehem
Length of Sighting: 3 min
How many Witnesses: 1
Any Photos/Videos: none

Describe sighting in detail:

I was making a round, I had to check my pumps to make sure they were still running, and they were. Instead of going back the I came I went around the back side of the dump.
When I came around the corner I saw this critter in front of me. Then I realized what I was looking at.
I saw the hand reach for the post and the long hair, it stepped over the rail down over the hill and it was gone. I looked for it couldn't find it with the spot light.  I had looked everywhere, it was gone.

- End Report -


Here is report #2 from Mike and it happened in Maine. Here is a general map of the area.

Bigfoot sighting in Maine


- Start Report -

Name: Mike *******
Email Address: On File
State: Maine
County: Oxford
Date of Sighting: No Date Given
Time of Day: No Time Given
Nearest Town: Bethel (?)
Length of Sighting: 10 min
How many Witnesses: 1
Any Photos/Videos: none

Describe sighting in detail:
The other one that I saw was in Grafton Notch State Park in Maine. I got a good look at this one as it walked out of the woods like nothing. It bent down and push a branch out of its way and stood there where I could see it plain as day.
The thing that scared me was it's arms, they looked like Popeye arms, very muscular. You could see the short hair, black, red. It stood between 7 -8 ft tall. I watch him for maybe 10 min tops cause the weather was getting foggy. Those are the only 2 I've seen.

- End Report - 


I have email Mike to get the date for the #2 report and will update it once I get a reply.
A big thanks to Mike for sending in his sightings.

Thanks
~Tom~
