(Show Printer-friendly Version)
DATE: NOT SURE
COUNTY: Bucks County
LOCATION DETAILS: THIS IS AN EXTREMELY BUILT UP AREA, EASILY ACCESSED THEN AND TODAY INTERESTING THOUGH ALMOST UNCHANGED SINCE THEN AND NOW
NEAREST TOWN: LEVITTOWN
NEAREST ROAD: WOODBOURNE RD
OBSERVED: WELL I CANT BELIEVE AFTER ALL THESE YEARS IM DOING THIS BUT DUE TO THE RECENT TRAGEDY I HAVE A NEW RESPECT FOR HOW SHORT LIFE CAN BE,AND I THINK LEGITIMATE RESEARCHERS NEED TO HEAR ABOUT AN EXTRAORDINARY OCCURANCE THAT HAPPENED IN MY LIFE. I KNOW EVEN THE MOST BELIEVING OF YOU ARE GOING TO THINK THIS IS BULLSHIT, BUT AS THE SAYING GOES TRUTH IS STRANGER THEN FICTION:
IT WAS IN 1976 IN LEVITTOWN PA. MY FRIEND AND I SKIPPED SCHOOL (I WAS 16). WE WERE GOING TO HUNT THE THIOKAL PROPERTY WITH BOWS. THIS ACTUALLY IS THE MOST INCREDIBLE PART OF THIS, THE THIOKAL PROPERTY IS LOCATED IN THE MIDDLE OF LEVITTOWN THE MODEL FOR SUBURBIA. THE
PROPERTY WAS A FENCED WITH BARBED WIRE ENCLOSURE ABOUT A MILE SQUARE EACH WAY WITH A ROAD ON THE PERIMETER THAT ARMED GUARDS WOULD PATROL. SO MY FRIEND AND I PLAYED COMMANDO ,SNEEKING UNDER THE FENCE WITH DIRT ON OUR FACES WEARING CAMO SHIRTS. WE DID THIS BECAUSE IT WAS THE ONLY PLACE TO HUNT OR TRAP AND THE PROPERTY WAS EXCELLENT, SWAMPS, RAVINES, FLAT FIELDS AT THE TOP,HEAVY OLD WOODS, GREAT DIVERISITY(BY THE WAY I DONT KNOW IF THIS IS THE INFO YOU WANT BUT I THINK YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS BUT BECAUSE I THINK ITS PERTINANT). ANYWAY WE SNUCK IN AND WERE HUNTING SQUIRRELS WITH BOWS. MY FRIEND JUST SHOT ONE OUT OF A TREE AND WAS BENDING DOWN TO CUT OFF ITS TAIL WHEN I SAW (I WAS LOOKING OUT FOR THE GUYS IN THE JEEPS) A BIGFOOT. IT WAS REALLY CLOSE ABOUT 100-120 FEET AWAY. IT WAS JUST STANDING THERE WITH ONE ARM HOLDING ONTO A PIECE OF TREE CHEWING IT (IVE SINCE COME TO REALIZE (AFTER SEEING A COW) IT WAS CHEWING IT LIKE AN UNGULATE SIDE TO SIDE I MEAN IT WAS EATING IT, CHEWING AND BITING OFF NEW PIECES .I WAS FROZEN WITH FEAR. MY FRIEND WAS BUSY WITH THE SQUIRREL SO I WATCHED IT FOR 20 SECONDS? IT DOESNT SOUND LONG BUT IT SEEMED LIKE FOREVER. I GOT AN EXCELLENT LOOK AT IT - 7 FOOT TALL MAYBE JUST A LITTLE MORE-REDDISH/BROWN HAIR 3-4 INCHES LONG. THE THING I REMEMBER MOST WAS THE FACE BECAUSE IT WAS EATING. I GUESS IT LOOKED ALMOST HUMAN IF IT WASNT SO TALL AND COVERED WITH HAIR . IT COULD HAVE BEEN SOME DEFORMED PERSON. I THOUGHT A CROSS BETWEEN A GORILLA FACE AND HUMAN WITH BIG LIPS FLATTENED TYPE NOSE (NEGROID TYPE I GUESS THATS THE RIGHT DESCRIPTION NOT MEANING TO BE DEROGATORY). IT JUST STOOD THERE LOOKING AT US. I GRABBED MY FRIEND AND YELLED LOOK! HE GOT UP AND PICKED UP THE BOW AND AN ARROW AND SAID 'WERE GONNA BE RICH'. HE WAS GOING TO KILL IT. I LOOKED BACK AT IT. IT STILL DIDNT MOVE - NOT A MUSCLE, SHOWED NO FEAR AT ALL , COMPLETELY CALM,KEPT CHEWING . ANYWAY IT LIKE SOMEHOW TELEPATHICALLY TALKED TO ME AND SAID-IF YOU HURT ME IM GOING TO KILL YOU BOTH. I FREAKED OUT AND STARTED SCREAMING ' ITS GONNA KILL US, ITS GONNA KILL US' AND GRABBED THE BOW OUT OF HIS HANDS . WE THEN TURNED AND RAN FOR OUR LIVES.
WE TOLD OUR PARENTS WHO SAID QUOTE WHAT ARE YOU GUYS SMOKING. ANYWAY, BECAUSE OF THE UNBELIEVABLE CURCUMSTANCES (MAINLY THIS WAS A CHEMICAL PLANT WITH ARMED GUARDS) WE THOUGHT MAYBE THE GOVERMENT WAS INVOLVED OR SOMETHING AND WE DIDNT TELL ANYONE FOR YEARS. I HAVE TALKED TO SOMEONE WHO WORKED THERE AT THE TIME AND THEY SAID THEY DID WORK FOR GOVERMENT- JET FUEL ADDITTIVE-WHEN I TOLD HER ABOUT BIGFOOT SHE LAUGHED AND SAID THEY HAD NO BIGFOOTS. (I THOUGHT MAYBE IT WAS CAPTURED ONE/TRAINED OR SOMETHING) . SINCE THEY HAD ARMED GUARDS PATROL, ONLY PLAUSIBLE EXPLANATION I'VE COME UP WITH WAS A PERSON DRESSED UP IN HOLLYWOOD QUALITY BIGFOOT COSTUME TO TRY TO SCARE US AWAY. THAT DOESNT EXPLAIN THE TELEPATHIC ENCOUNTER. I THINK IVE SPENT A LONG TIME TRYING TO RATIONALIZE
THIS AND HAVENT COME UP WITH ANY REASONABLE EXPLAINATION
OTHER WITNESSES: JUST MY FRIEND AND I. UNFORTUNATELY MY FRIEND WAS KILLED IN A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT SOME YEARS AGO. THIS IS WHY IVE NEVER SAID OR WRITTEN ABOUT IT, BECAUSE IM THE ONLY WITNESS NOW IT EXPOSES ME TO ADDITIONAL SKEPTISM AND RIDICULE.
OTHER STORIES: NO FOR THIS TO OCCUR HERE MAKES ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE. THIS AREA IS TOTALLY BUILT UP. THERES NO WILDERNESS.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: LATE MORNING 11-12 WARM NICE DAY ,CLEAR BRIGHT SUNSHINE
ENVIRONMENT: IT WAS ON A HILL. THERES A CREEK AT THE BOTTOM ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FENCE GOOD OLD GROWTH ON THE HILL BIG TREES, WITH SCRUB/SMALL TREES AND OPEN PATCHES INTERSPERSED.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Jim Osborne:
When I talked with the witness he said there were several things that struck him at the time (before the telepathic incident). First was how human-like the creature was despite the hair and large size, and its utter calmness as it looked at him and continued to nibble on leaves. Most striking about its features were its penetrating eyes which conveyed an attitude of extreme confidence. He was also puzzled by the fact that despite its nearness and the length of time he observed it, he was totally unable to determine its sex. I asked whether both he and his friend received the telepathic message and he replied that it was only him.
