As a member of the Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society I have investigated several reports of Bigfoot type creature sightings and other strange creature reports. In the following photos below what made the tracks is not known and some of the areas are still under investigation.
February 14 2002 over 200 tracks were found in the Waynesboro reservoir, I was contacted by PBS director Eric Altman since I was the closest investigator in the area. Upon arriving I had taken measurements, photos, and video of the area and tracks. I was pressed for time because the story was leaked to the press and the story was to appear in the evening paper so I did what I could in the time I had available. After it hit the news groups of people started to arrive and before I left most of the tracks had been destroyed from people stepping in them, a thorough investigation could not be completed. Who or what made the tracks are not known although the incident was later ruled a hoax. The area is host to several reports of sightings of a Bigfoot creature and strange animal sounds.
May 2002 two men camping by this pond were kept awake all night by something that was circling the pond. They saw a shadow of a large creature and smelled a foul odor. The frightened men left and reported the incident to the PBS. One of the men showed us the area but no evidence was found.
July 2002 I received a report from the PBS, a man claimed to have heard the scream of a strange animal while him and his son were fishing. Being an experienced hunter he was not familiar with the sound the animal had made. The sound frightened the man and his son and they quickly left the area. The area is about two miles from the reported Mothman attack. Could there be a strange animal roaming the woods in Pennsylvania?
April 27, 2003 Bigfoot expedition at a location where there have been reports of a Bigfoot type creature. Several sightings and unknown animal sounds have been heard in the area over the years as well as over 200 strange tracks that were found last year. Who or what made the tracks is unclear it measured 15 in. in length and 5 1/2 in. wide. No other evidence in the area was found although one member felt uneasy in an area he had hiked to. Members of the Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society and the Paranormal Society of Pennsylvania have conducted several outings to the area over the past few years.
May 18, 2003 A report received by Stan Gordon, Mike Frizell , and myself told the sighting of a strange creature in central PA, which ran across the road in front of a car of a couple traveling on their way home to Maryland. The description given was not of a creature indigenous to PA. I joined Mike Frizzel to investigate and photograph what we believe to be the area of the sighting. While no evidence was found, we did find some small depressions in the ground along the embankment that appear to be the tracks of a smaller animal that I believe doesn't fit the description of the creature given.
July 20, 2003 Investigated the report of a Mothman type creature received from John Weaver in the Harrisburg area, two tracks which measured 16 inches in length and 6 inches wide were found in the grass along side the road. Who or what made the tracks are unknown.
February 29, 2004 PBS members Bruce Haines, David Cox, and myself headed to an area in central PA that has sightings in the past of a Bigfoot type creature. The snow was almost knee deep in some areas and following an old logging trail we found a set of tracks which ran for about 20 yards then stopped. There were no more tracks to follow they simply stopped without leaving a trail to somewhere. While most of the tracks were not identifiable, two were and measured 9 in. in length and 5 in wide.
