Allegheny County

August 25, 2015, in Northside Cemetery, Pittsburgh:
While riding in a car as part of a funeral procession around 11:30 am in Northside Cemetery, a woman saw a creature, approx 6 1/2 tall with long brown hair covering its body. She noted that it was fairly lean and thin, had a cone-shaped head, & was walking behind a dirt mound from an area of the cemetery where landscaping is frequently dumped. The sighting last for about five seconds & the angle of its travel & path down the hillside prevented further observation from her perspective in the car. The dirt mound is just across the main chapel in the cemetery & just behind it are areas of thick woods & Japanese Knotweed.  The angle of the sighting did not allow her to see its face & it appeared oblivious to the long line of cars which were only about 30-40 yards away. A follow-up investigation with the witness was performed by Joyce Long, Kathy Wood, George & Bheki Stevens 5 days later. A five-toed footprint impression was observed in the area near the dirt mound.  The cemetery is frequently populated with visitors & people walking their pets and exercising. The area behind the cemetery is thick woods with steep grades including known sightings of coyotes & deer.

While driving along Route 30 east towards Pittsburgh, a witness reported seeing a figure standing on the side of the road near a speed limit sign.  Brian and Terrie Seech of the Center for Unexplained Events received the report and forwarded it off to the PA Bigfoot Society.  Upon investigation with the witness, Brian Seech and the witness recreated the event, while Terrie Seech stood where the figure would have been. Terrie was barely noticeable from Route 30 as they passed. The witness stated that the creature was just under the speed limit sign, which we measured at 7'5" from the ground. A possible print near the creek was cast which measured 12" long and 6" across.  -Courtesy of the Center for Unexplained Events.

2007, Mt. Lebanon near the Bird Park
While walking through a wooded area near the Bird Park, the witness heard rustling behind him followed by a deep grunt.  The man followed the rustling sounds through the woods and witnessed a burly “man” covered in extensive amounts of fur 20 yards away.    The witness estimated the creature to stand 7 to 8-foot tall, covered in light fur that had a reddish color in the sunlight.  The creature had smaller eyes and the hands had little hair on them.  PBS Assistant Director Dave Dragosin spoke with the witness by phone and felt the witness was credible.  We were unable to meet the witness in person due to conflicting schedules, however, the area in question does provide suitable habitat for a creature to move through the area with little or no detection.

Spring of 1990, near Shaler:
Young boys discovered what they believed to be two deer killed by a Bigfoot at the top of a steep ravine.  Two very fresh deer carcasses were poorly stowed up under some undergrowth. The adult doe had three broken legs, one of the rear legs almost completely twisted off.  The fawn had anobvious broken back. At the time we never thought of a Bigfoot-related deer kill.  Years later (about 3 years ago) one of the witnesses stumbled across an article on Bigfoot and deer kills. Before seeing the photos we knew that what we found that day matched exactly what the article described.  The boys did go back (shortly after-- possibly same day) to the "scene of the crime" to come up with a better explanation but the carcasses were gone - no drag marks, blood, etc.. Aside from the broken bones, there were no evident wounds on either deer; definitely not a dog-kill.
