Visits: 32

November 29, 1992: 11PM: Somerset County: Two brothers and a friend were spotting deer. They saw some not too well-defined tracks with long strides in the dusting of the snow. The friends followed the tracks in the snow for about 3/4 of a mile. One of the men leaned against a tree in a clearing and a tall hairy “thing” brushed against his cheek. It didn’t feel like a human touch, and he fell to the ground, attracting another friend’s attention. The man was disoriented could not talk for a while. They heard rustling noises, high-pitched screams and twigs breaking. The men only saw a shadow about 9 foot tall. Submitted by: Paul Johnson.

Early August 1989: 7PM EST: Stonycreek Township: This sighting happened during the daytime on a clear day. The area surrounding the sighting was wooded and hilly. No odor was smelled, and no vocal sounds were heard. A man, woman, and 2 youngsters were riding ATVs on a mountain ridge in Stonycreek Township several miles north of the Turnpike Tunnel. As they maneuvered along a power line right-of-way, a tall, hairy bi-pedal creature walked from the brush to the middle of the road where it abruptly stopped, turned, and stared at the astonished witnesses. The witnesses came to a halt about 500 feet away. According to the male witness the creature was about 7 1/2 feet tall and completely covered with long, light brown hair. He estimated that the hair was from six to eight inches long and very “straggly” which prevented him from viewing any facial details. Although standing on two legs, the creature was “bent over” slightly as if it had bad posture. The arms dangled down to the knees. The four witnesses sat on the ATVs with the engines running and stared at the strange, hairy figure for about 5 minutes. It just stood there motionlessly looking back at them. After about 5 minutes, the creature turned and ran into the brush. The witnesses finally drove past where the creature had stood, but they were unable to see any further signs of it.

May 20: 1989 (?): 3 miles east of Jennerstown: Three men were fishing, when one of them went back to the car for something. He only saw the creature in profile, but it was at least 50% covered in long black or dark brown hair. The creature was about 7 foot tall and was walking upright on 2 legs. It seemed to be grunting and was walking very fast in a zig zag fashion.

November 22, 1980: 10:45AM: Kingwood: Two brothers were hunting small game on a clear crisp day. The two hunters were tired and decided to go home. They had just left a field and were walking into the woods, when one brother remarked how strange it was that the woods was so quiet. He then looked through the woods into another field, a distance of approximately 250 yards, and pointed at a creature. He ask his brother what was that going across the field. The other brother could not see the creature until it went into the tree line and then he caught the movement of it. They sat down waiting to see it come through the woods. After about 10 minutes of not seeing the creature again they went home. Near this sighting are several mines. No odors were detected and no vocalizations were heard. Only one bi-pedal dirty brown colored creature was observed and the head looked as if was sitting directly on the shoulders. It had long arms and very powerful looking shoulders, arms and legs. It was taking large strides as it crossed the field into the woods. Submitted by: Paul Johnson
bullet October 1980: Kingwood: During the daytime a man was walking about 300 yards from the opening of a mine, when he observed a 10 foot tall, hairy creature weighing about 600 pounds.
