August - September 2011, Forbes State Forest, at a construction site near Quebec Run:
A supervisor of an overnight security firm contacted the PBS by phone informing us of unusual sounds his security team was hearing almost nightly in the forested areas around the construction site during their nighttime patrols. The team claimed they would hear loud high pitched screams, howls, whoops, wood knocks and even deep guttural growls.
On September 8th in the morning, the supervisor contacted our organization to report he discovered the source of the sounds. While he was sitting in his pick up truck watching the property around 3:30 in the morning, he saw a creature staring at him from around the back of a power supply board on the edge of the property, approximately 75 yards away from him. He watched the creature for several moments until it turned and walked away on two legs into the darkness.
The next night, September 9, 2011, PBS held a weekend investigation into the property and came away with some very interesting information and possible evidence to confirm the claims of the supervisor and his team.

When the men went over to investigate the area where they saw the deer, they discovered large barefoot human shaped tracks measuring 13 inches long. They stated the tracks went on for hundreds of yards before turning into the woods. The tracks headed off away from where the men were shooting, deeper into the remote area. They walked along the dirt trail away from the parking area.
Later that afternoon On June 8, 2011, PBS Investigator Chris Brinker arrived on site to investigate. He met the witness and was able to see a few tracks before being chased back to his truck by a severe thunderstorm which included high winds, heavy rains, and hail.

A mother and daughter were out for a drive on the back mountain roads. They decided to turn around further down the road and come back to the gas line to enjoy the view. The ladies pulled over and got out of the car. As they were looking down the gas line, they began to hear rustling in the brush on the left side of the gas line. Looking down the hill on the left, they expected to see a bear or deer come out of the thick brush line. Instead, a large hair covered creature exited, walked across the gas well line from left to right, and entered the forest on the right. The witnesses described the creature as large, covered in dark brown hair. Arms at its sides swinging as it walked. The creature never looked up the hill at the mother and daughter but continued across the gas well line into the forest. Finally, it dissapeared from sight. The women got back in the car, drove home to the mothers boyfriend where she told him what happened and the three went back to the site. They did not see anything further. That night, the witness contacted longtime researcher, Stan Gordon.
Eric Altman, as well as Dave & Cindy Dragosin, met the witnesses and the boyfriend who took them to the location. A search of the area led to some interesting possible evidence. On the left side of the gas well line where the rustling noise was heard, Eric discovered an area of trampled weeds and tall grass next to a blackberry bush. It appeared that some type of animal was walking along the berry bush. The tall grass was trampled across the gas well line, leading into the tree line on the right side. A large human shaped impression was found and cast. It measured 19 inches long by 7 inches wide. Upon additional research, it was learned that others in the area, as well as gas well workers, have claimed finding human-like prints on the gas well, and hearing strange sounds.

An elderly woman arrived at her property to check up on and feed several cats. As she walked from her driveway into the open yard, the woman claimed she came within 30 feet of two creatures eating wild blueberries from her blueberry bushes on the back side of her property. She stated the larger of the two stood well over 7 feet tall, while the smaller was around 3 feet tall. She stated the smaller creature was the same color of a deer, very light brown in color and she first thought it was a deer because it was bent over eating the berries. She made some noise, and the smaller creature stood up, turned, looked at her and quickly ran off to the right into some very thick brush out of sight. As her attention was focused on the right where the smaller creature stood, she heard thrashing in the bushes to her left. Upon looking she saw a very tall, massive creature walking through the brush right towards her. The creature stopped at the edge of the yard, looked at her before turning, then it walked back into the overgrown brush, flailiing its arms as it forced its way through it. She watched the large dark colored creature for several minutes until it disappeared out of sight.

A woman driving on North Connellsville Street out of the city almost hit a creature that darted into the roadway. She was driving 40mph and saw a figure running towards the roadway from a schoolyard on her left.

The creature continued running into the street and she got a good look at it's face. She stated it had a wild look on it's face, and covered from head to toe in hair. She was so close to the creature, she thought it was going to hit the hood of her car. Instead, it lept over the trunk of her car as she watched it in her rear view mirror. The creature continued into the right aid parking lot and onto a side street, running down the street and eventually out of site.
Eric spoke with the witness on Sunday, July 11, and arranged a face to face interview on July 16, 2009. The woman and her husband were met at the sighting location by PBS Investigators.

Spring 1977, Outside Grays Landing:
A man was driving his car around March or April 1977 near a dump area. It was a bright, sunny day with patches of snow on the ground. He parked his car. While still sitting in his car he smelled an awful odor. The odor did not make his eyes water but there was a sense of heat with the smell and a stinging sensation on the mans exposed skin. He looked over his left shoulder and there, about ten yards from him, was the creature. This creature was standing upright, stood about 8 to 9 foot tall and was well muscled. The creature had reddish-brown colored hair with a tint of gold towards the end of the fur. It had hair all over its body but not totally covering the creatures hands and feet. The skin area that was exposed had a yellowish, orange color. The creature had a small object in its hands that it was looking at. The creatures legs were large, especially the thighs, and its arms and chest were similar to an ape, but with 3 to 4 times more muscles. "When I turned the ignition on the creature turned toward the sound. At that time I saw its face. Its eyes were huge and were not perfect circles, but an elongated circle," stated the witness. He said this creature definitely blinked. He doesn't remember a bottom eye lid just a top eye lid. The rest of the face was covered with fur. The witness could make out a small opening that had to be its mouth. The facial hair, though the same color as the rest of its body, had a different pattern. It was as if the creature had a large curly beard. From the bottom of its eyes on the front of the face (the witness could not make out a nose area) to probably the mouth area, the fur was a tightly knit, as if it had a beard. This curly beard extended down in a V-shape to about the top middle of its chest. The front of the creatures face was flat. As the witness was pulling away the creature started running and covered about 20 yards in less than 2 seconds. - Courtesy of Dr. Paul Johnson and Stan Gordon.

The man shot at the creatures, which caused the spherical UFO that had landed in the field, to leave the area immediately. Although the witness felt he didn't miss, the shots had little effect on the strange creatures. They simply turned around and traversed their way back along the fence line. A luminescent ring on the ground remained where the UFO had once been. The witness left the area and returned later with a State Trooper. Although the glowing ring near the ground was still visible, its intensity had diminished.
