Here's an interview with the man who called the police about having proof of Bigfoot. The May 14th incidence prompted the Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society to investigate the rumored Bigfoot shooting overheard by a ham radio operator. Last week, PBS president Eric Altman posted an extensive summary regarding the case and suggested that the radio operator may "have mistakenly heard certain details about the Bigfoot activity in the area that day." A local television station in Somerset County got a hold of John Winesickle, the person who placed the call to a police dispatcher. Here's the story:
PAINT TOWNSHIP, SOMERSET COUNTY - On May 14th police responded to a man claiming to have proof of Bigfoot just miles from his home in Somerset County.
That man is John Winesickle, and he has picture after picture of alleged footprints caused by what he said is Bigfoot.
Winesickle took the investigating officer on a path in the woods he regularly walks and showed the officer the tracks, but according to the police report, the investigator concluded the tracks belonged to a bear.
"No, No," said Winesickle in an interview with WTAJ. "A bear can't go down a steep bank on all twos," he said. "This is Bigfoot."
Winesickle said he's believed in Bigfoot his entire life, and added he recently heard noise made from the alleged creature.
"The voice is so deep," he said. "I've heard bass singers on television and they can't even come close to the bass sound it made to me."
He said he once came close to actually seeing what he claims was Bigfoot, but added whatever he saw quickly ran away.
"It's deathly afraid," he added. "It won't hurt you."
Although the police report concludes that Winesickle saw bear tracks, he's still thankful they investigated, and he still insists Bigfoot was in the area.
"The police have been very nice to me," he said. "It wasn't a bear, it was Bigfoot."
