911 call: 'Proof of bigfoot'
Evidence in the woods of Pennsylvania prompts a police investigation.
The 911 call came into authorities in Altoona, a small city in the Allegheny mountains of Pennsylvania.
Someone had proof of bigfoot.
A man had been walking on a path in the woods when he came upon the evidence. Mr. John Winesickle was convinced enough of his finding to call police and insist an officer investigate.
Winesickle shared his evidence: a series of photographs of enormous footprints clearly stamped in the mud, each big and deep enough to suggest a creature of monstrous size and weight. The officer was taken into the woods to see the tracks for himself.
According to a police report, the investigating officer determined the tracks belonged to a bear. But Winesickle says no way.
“No, no, no, no,” he told an interviewer from central Pennsylvania’s WTAJ television. “A bear can’t go down a steep bank on all twos. This is bigfoot.”
Winesickle also said he walks in the area regularly and has heard bigfoot’s deep growl before, apparently in warning when he came too close to the creature in hiding. He’s never caught a glimpse, but Winesickle is unshakeable in his belief that he has heard the voice and seen the tracks of bigfoot.

Bigfoot sightings are more prominent in the Pacific Northwest, though the Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society has amassed an archive of reports over the years. Pennsylvania neighbors Ohio, the state with the fourth most sightings. In 2007, unclear photos captured by an Elk County deer hunter depicted a dark and strange creature lumbering through the night in Allegheny National Forest. The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization reviewed the images and said they believed the image is of a juvenile Sasquatch. Park rangers said it was a skinny bear.
