Possible Bigfoot Sighting Reported in Southern Westmoreland County, PA-August 13, 2013
The following details were received from Eric Altman, Director of the (PBS) Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society.
Check out their website at: www.pabigfootsociety.com. At about 7: 30 AM, the witness was walking his dog in this rural wooded location. It was a nice day with low humidity and a comfortable temperature. The fellow began to hear three loud hollow sounding chopping sounds originating from the wooded hill side above his home. He soon heard what sounded like a tree falling south of where he heard the chopping noises.
At that point he noticed a figure standing near a pine tree. The form appeared to be about 7 to 7 ½ feet tall, and appeared to be dark gray or black in color. The witness estimated that the creature was 3-4 feet wide at the shoulders. The legs were shorter than the arms which were long and hung down around the knees. The witness could not be sure if it was hair covered due to the darkness of the area.
The creature looked toward the witness for a few seconds then took three leaps to his right and covered about 15-20 feet as it went up the hill into the tree line. Members of the PBS searched the area of the encounter but they were unable to find any evidence. They, however, felt the witness did see something.
