While driving along route 30 east towards Pittsburgh, a witness reported seeing a figure standing on the side of the road near a speed limit sign. Brian and Terrie Seech of the Center for Unexplained Events received the report and forwarded it off to the PA Bigfoot Society.

Terrie was barely noticeable from Route 30 as they passed. The witness stated that the creature was just under the speed limit sign, which we measured at 7’5″ from the ground. A possible print near the creek was casted which measured 12″ long and 6″ across. Report courtesy of the Center for Unexplained Events.

Investigators found 21 inch long, 3-toed footprints impressed at least five inches into the hard soil. The tracks were five feet apart, a difficult feat for a human to reproduce on the 45 degree embankment.

Sept 27 2007 Mt. Lebanon near the Bird Park
While walking through a wooded area near the Bird Park, the witness heard rustling behind him followed by a deep grunt. The man followed the rustling sounds through the woods, and witnessed a burly “man” covered in extensive amounts of fur 20 yards away. The witness estimated the creature to stand 7 to 8 foot talk, covered in light fur that had a reddish color in the sunlight. The creature had smaller eyes and the hands had little hair on them. PBS Assistant Director Dave Dragosin spoke with the witness by phone and felt the witness was credible. We were unable to meet the witness in person due to conflicting schedules, however the area in question does provide suitable habitat for a creature to move through the area with little or no detection.
Glendale PA: At approximately 10:00 pm at night, several young men were in the kitchen playing cards. After letting dog out to go to the bathroom, the dog started to growl.

Spring of 1990
Shaler Twp: A group of young boys discovered what they believed to be two deer killed by a Bigfoot at the top of a steep ravine. Two very fresh deer carcasses were poorly stowed up under some undergrowth. The adult doe had three broken legs, one of the rear legs almost completely twisted off. The fawn had an obvious broken back. At the time we never thought of a Bigfoot related deer kill. A short time later, the boys returned to the scene to try to come up with a better explanation but the carcasses were gone – no drag marks, blood, etc.. Aside from the broken bones, there were no evident wounds on either deer; definitely not a dog-kill.
