YEAR: 1972


STATE: Pennsylvania

COUNTY: Clarion County

LOCATION DETAILS: by Clarion river


OBSERVED: About 25 years ago maybe 1972 I was hunting squirrels with a 12 gauge double barrel shotgun.

I was sitting on a giant rock when I heard a noise behind me, I saw a big hairy animal approx. 6 to 7 feet tall walking upright.

I watched this beast walk about 200 yards until it was out of sight.

At this point I was petrified.

I waited about 10 minutes then ran home.

This was absolutely not a bear and nothing has scared me more since.

OTHER WITNESSES: I was alone, I think I was about 14 at the time. I had been hunting all morning.

ENVIRONMENT: Sloping terrain approx. 400 yards from river. There were big pine trees and mountain laurel and giant rocks. It happened near Clarion.
