Bigfoot is the name given to large apelike creatures covered in hair that are said to inhabit not only the Pacific Northwest but in areas all across the USA. The reports on this site are sighting encounters investigated by various research groups (names credited).
Here we presented some of the famous bigfoot sighting legends!
BIGFOOT LEGEND 1: BRADY’S RUN PARK, BEAVER CO. PA
An eyewitness and her friend were waiting out a storm in Brady’s Run Park under a picnic shelter. After the storm has subsided they proceeded on a trail into the woods on their horses. Halfway up the trail the 2nd rider noticed a large ape-like creature about 15-20 feet from her horse.
The eyewitness said that the creature was growling and had both arms raised in a threatening motion, as if it was trying to scare the witness from the area. The witness claimed the creature was very muscular and had brown hair covering its body. The witness’ friend was so frightened that when they reached their house she would never speak of the incident again, even to this day. CUE members continue to monitor this area.
BIGFOOT LEGEND 2: NORTH WASHINGTON, BUTLER CO. PA
A witness heard pounding on his trailer at 10:35pm. The witness called his neighbor who lived next door. When he arrived all the lights were off with his back door open and a loaded gun ready to shoot at whatever was pounding on the trailer. Both witnesses were looking out the back door of the trailer when they heard something cry out in the forest.
BIGFOOT LEGEND 3: AMWELL TWP. WASHIGNTON CO. PA
Three witnesses were spotting deer when they spotted a large silvery ape-like creature staring at them. The eyewitness stated that the creature had large black circles for eyes, the size of a half-dollar. The body of the creature was totally covered by hair. The arms of the creature appeared longer than humans. The eyewitness stated that the creature never moved. After several minutes the frightened driver drove away.
Years later the witness claimed to have heard strange screams coming from the same general area.
BIGFOOT LEGEND 4: BIG BEAVER, BEAVER CO. PA
A witness and his wife were hiking along an ATV trail down by an old quarry. The witness stated he found a large human-like 4-toed print that seemed to be missing a small toe. He stated the track was very wide and approx. 15 inches long. The second encounter happened around 1998 in the same area.
The witness and his wife were hiking when they heard a loud whistle coming from close proximity to them. The whistle sounded birdlike/humanlike “somewhere in the middle”. The witness claimed the hair stood up on the back of his neck. The woods grew strangely still and quiet. The witness’ wife was very nervous and they left the area. CUE members investigated the area on 8/27/06. The sighting location is remote and was about 1 mile back on a steep trail on a mountain that overlooked a large valley. The sighting location was close to the other sightings in the Lawrence Co. area. No evidence was found during the hike.
BIGFOOT LEGEND 5: NEW CASTLE, LAWRENCE CO. PA
JULY 10, 2000
A witness was fishing in the stream that flows through Cascade Park when suddenly he felt like he was being watched. He stared across the stream and he saw a 5 ft tall white ape-like creature staring at him.
BIGFOOT LEGEND 6: NEW CASTLE, LAWRENCE CO. PA
MAY 16, 2003
Witness was driving on Route 60 about 10 miles north of New Castle when he observed a strange creature crossing Route 60. The eyewitness stated it was all black or very dark brown. The estimated size was 8 ft. The witness observed the creature coming from the medial strip.
BIGFOOT LEGEND 7: DARLINGTON TWP., BEAVER CO. PA
SEPTEMBER 18, 2004
A witness had let her dog out when she heard heavy footsteps approaching. The dog sniffed the air then went about his business. The witness from the light of her dusk-to-dawn light observed a creature with red eyes. She claimed that the creature’s face looked like a perinese (sic) dog.
The creature was covered in white fur. The creature observed the witness for several minutes and slipped silently into the forest. After receiving the report my wife and I investigated the area on 10/9/2004. We measured the limb where the witness stated the creature was standing. At eye level it was 6’10”. We also investigated the surrounding area but found no physical evidence.
BIGFOOT LEGEND 8: BRADY’S RUN PARK, BEAVER CO. PA
OCTOBER 18, 2004
A witness was out in his yard when he heard a large animal running through the woods breaking branches. The witness then observed a large creature standing in the wood line in a large group of pine trees. CUE members investigated the area and where the creature was standing was approx.
6 ft 3 in. Upon investigating the area there were numerous broken branches where apparently something large came through. We did not find any tracks since there were pine needles strewn about. The witness claimed the creature was huge, about 6 ft. ape-like looking and covered in white fur.
BIGFOOT LEGEND 9: ALLEGHENY CO. PA
A witness and his friend were spot lighting deer when the spotlight beam caught 2 huge silver reflecting eyes peering at them. The creature squatted down. They caught the shape of a huge cone-shaped head. The witness fled the area – down the access road. The witness claimed he heard the animal crashing through the woods breaking limbs in its path.
After 3 days the witness went back t the area and saw a pathway that something huge had crashed through the area. There were old limbs, branches and old fallen trees crushed under its weight as well as fresh broken limbs and trees knocked down and over. Several weeks later the witness was again spot lighting in the same general area and again he saw a large creature up on the hill. The second creature was smaller and a different color. The first creature was 8 ft tall dome head, big silver dollar size eyes. The hair color was black. The second creature was reddish-brown, 6 ½- 7 ½ ft tall, big arms and hands and red eyes like the devil. We investigated the site on several occasions. The first occasion when we were with the witness, he claimed he saw a dark shape in the woods when we were coming down the hill. I searched the area but found nothing. When we stopped at the bottom of the hill it was getting dark. The witness was getting nervous and he stated “It’s getting dark, I don’t want to be here when its dark.” There was a lot of genuine fear in his eyes. CUE continues to monitor the area.
BIGFOOT LEGEND 10: LAWRENCE CO. PA
JANUARY 16, 2006
A witness was feeding his dog when he turned around and saw a large white ape-like creature staring at him about 50 yards away. The witness stated that the creature hopped 3 times and stared at him from behind a tree. The witness ran into the house to get his mother. When they returned the creature was about 75 yards away and staring at them.
The witness’ mother claimed she got a ‘chill’ and got very scared and they ran into the house. We received the report and investigated the area on Jan. 20th. We also set up a game-cam on the property for 1 week but no pictures were taken. The witness stated that the creature was white, about 6 ft tall with very broad shoulders. In the weeks that followed the witnesses’ father’s dog ran away and was never found. (He lives next door.) Several cats went missing from a neighbors’ property. We returned and investigated the surrounding area but found no evidence.
BIGFOOT LEGEND 11: LAWRENCE CO. PA
A witness was driving down Route 60 South when he observed a creature walking down the side of the road. The creature was described as about 7-8 ft tall and dark brown.
It walked upright, with a slight limp-like gate in its walk. Its legs were too long to be that of a bear.
BIGFOOT LEGEND 12: HERFORD MANOR LAKE, BEAVER CO. PA
AUGUST 2, 2007
A witness was fishing in the lower lake late in the evening when he heard some noises like brush crackling so he shined his headlamp on the hillside and saw a set of reddish-green eyes about 7 ft off the ground. When the light hit its eyes it crouched and shuffled to the side, the witness thought it was a ‘coon in the tree so he continued to fish.
The witness then heard brush crackling and smelled a musty smell close to him. The witness then threw a rock at the sound to scare it away. The witness heard a loud crack and a log came flying off the hillside into the water in front of him. The witness heard a groaning noise and started to run into his vehicle and drove away. We investigated the area on 8/6/07 on a rainy day but found no tracks or signs of the creature.
BIGFOOT LEGEND 13: ALLEGHENY CO. PA
OCTOBER 1, 2007
Eyewitness heard a loud commotion at the end of his property. He heard wild ducks screaming as if being torn apart. The eyewitness shined his flashlight into the creek but couldn’t see anything. He then fired four shots with his handgun into the creek. He heard something on two legs walking quickly through the creek.
The next morning he found the ducks ripped apart. One duck had its head and bill ripped off and duck feathers were found 8-10 ft off the ground. No footprints were found. After talking with witness on the phone on 10/7/2007 the witness stated that he had other experiences from Oct 1971 forward to 2007. The witness also claimed that through the years he has lost 20 dogs, which were never found. Further attempts to contact the witness and examine the property were unsuccessful.
BIGFOOT LEGEND 14: BEAVER CREEK STATE PARK, COLUMBIANA CO. OH
FEBRUARY 13, 2008
This was a second hand report that was sent to another research group. The original report stated that a park ranger was talking to a photographer. The ranger told the photographer that a hiker came out of the woods and told the ranger that he had seen a guy in an ape suit down by the creek.
It was kneeling and looking into the dirt across from an island in the creek. On 2/16/08 and 2/17/08 CUE members investigated several areas of the creek that had numerous sightings in the past. No evidence was found.
BIGFOOT LEGEND 15: RACCOON CREEK PARK, BEAVER CO. PA
MAY 17, 2009
An eyewitness was driving by the entrance to the park when he glanced to this fight and saw a large dark figure standing by a sign in the park. We checked the area on 5/21/09. The sign where the creature was standing was 6 ft high.
The creature was estimated to be 7 ft tall. We investigated the area and found a print by the creek across the road. The print was indefinable and there were no toes. It could have been an older boot print but there were no treads in the print. This area did have another sighting in the past.
