Report # 1214 (Class A)
Submitted by witness on Friday, January 12, 2001.
While walking alone in the woods, boy comes face to face with 8 foot tall creature
COUNTY: Cambria County
LOCATION DETAILS: It is near the old liberty park swimming pool on waterdam road. Go up it. There are several places. I would take you there because it is where I used to live and the woods are complicated. I know them very very well so get a hold of me. I will show you and I have some proof, so does my grandma and my friend.
NEAREST TOWN: Southfork
NEAREST ROAD: route 219
OBSERVED: I will tell you about my visual incident. I was walking in the woods behind my old place when I heard some noise. At first I thought it was a deer or something so I looked to see what it was. When I looked I seen its face, it was one of the scariest things I had ever seen, but at the same moment it was interesting. As soon as it looked at me it then walked off. I ran as fast as I could back home. But I do not even remember my feet touching the ground.
Now I am going to tell you about what it looked like. It was about 8-9 feet tall – an educated guess. Its fur was a dark color, a cross between a brown and black with a tint of red to it. Its face was like a cross between an ape and a man. The nose was ape-like, the skull was sort of like a gorilla’s and had the look of a man’s structure in the face. It was greatly built in body and muscle mass.
Later me and my friend tried to get a plaster cast of one of the foot prints but it did not work. But we got photos of the foot prints and stuff.
Right now towards winter is the best time to see them because they are easy to find and see.
ALSO NOTICED: After I heard a very strange noise like a cross between an elephant and something I have never heard before.
OTHER WITNESSES: They were at home, they lived a while away from me so I am not so sure what they where doing at the time.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: The weather was nice enough that you did not need a heavy coat and the lighting was normal, not bright but not dim, it was about 12:30 in the afternoon.
ENVIRONMENT: It was in a forest like most others but parts have a lot of laurel and parts are mainly all hills and some parts are swamp but there is little swamp. There is an old pump house and a small shack thing but made of concrete.
Follow-up investigation report:
The witness added the following additional information:
The witness stated there were and are numerous other witnesses in and around the general vicinity of the sighting. Witness’ grandmother has evidence of previous sightings that happened many years ago. Police reports were also filed regarding these older sightings and plaster casts were made of footprints.
The witness is 100% convinced that what he saw that day was a bigfoot type creature and that it would currently be possible to find fresh tracks at the location.
