December 1, 1992: Brush Valley: This sighting area was near an abandoned mining town. The area is rural, wooded, with strip mines and other old mines. The witness observed a 7 to 8 foot tall brownish-red colored, bi-pedal creature. It was walking about 50 yards from the witness. The creature emitted an odor like sewage or a sulfur like smell. The witness shot at the creature but missed. He only saw the back of the creatures head and that had an ape-like appearance. Its arms were long but not below the knee. Submitted by: Paul Johnson.
October or November 1990: around dawn: Ruffington Township: This sighting took place in an area were there are caves and ponds. A young high school student was asleep in his trailer when he was awoken just after dawn by a noise on the back porch. He climbed out of bed and walked to the kitchen door where he peered out the window. The witness saw a hairy, chocolate brown colored, ape-like creature standing on the porch. The creature was looking around the porch at the buckets and other items there. It had long muscular arms and legs, a high brow ridge and a cone-shaped head. The eyes were a dark brown color and it had a small flattened nose on its face. The face had black wrinkled skin partially covered with hair. The witness didn’t notice a mouth or any teeth. His porch measured 6 1/2 foot and the creatures’ head was within a few inches of the top. He didn’t notice any unusual odors. After a minute or so the creature jumped from the porch and ran into the woods where it disappeared. As it was running, the creature was swinging its arms like a human jogger would.

October 7, 1989: around 3PM: near Homer City: Four men were driving along Route 56 in rural Indiana County. According to one of the witnesses in the back seat, their car nudged a small rise on the two-lane, and the passengers saw a tall, hairy creature step from the right side and cross the road in 2 strides. The creature was an erect walking biped, at least 8 foot tall and completely covered with dark brown hair. The creature never turned to look at the automobile, so the witnesses only observed it in profile. As a result, no one saw any facial detail. The creature’s head was round and also completely covered with dark hair. One of the witnesses stated it didn’t have a heavy chest or stomach. It was slim in stature and perhaps bent over a little at the waist. The strangest thing they observed was the way it walked in a stiff-legged and stiff-armed manner. It didn’t seem like it bent its knees or elbows, even though it was taking tremendous strides. After pulling the car to the side of the road, the passengers climbed out of the vehicle and ran to where the creature disappeared. The area, however, was covered with thick foliage and the witnesses were unable to view the creature again. There was no detectable odor associated with the encounter. Submitted by: Paul Johnson.
