“Bigfoot” on Visit?
What has been considered primarily a West Coast phenomenon at least for publicity purposes has apparently emerged in the southcentral Pennsylvania – northern Maryland areas. The mysteriously large hairy creature “Sasquatch,” or as it is more commonly referred to “Bigfoot,” has according to a recent article in the York Daily Record been sighted several times over the last few years in the immediate area.
In this year alone the article says there have been three mysterious incidents which leave traces indicating a visit from what scientists term an eastern American sub-species of Sasquatch. On Jan 10 a Fawn Grove man was reported in have sighted a 10-foot tall creature wandering near a local high school. As it walked away from him the article states it turned back to look as eyes shining white. The observer noticed a strong foul odor, a characteristic regularly noted by those claiming to have seen Sasquatch.
That same month on Jan 28 a York County farmer reported finding huge tracks in the snow on his farm near Delta, Pa. Each footprint he claimed measured 15 by 6 inches with a xx-foot stride between. Following the tracks across his farm Allen Hilsmier and his sons found remains of a dead rabbit at one point and clinging to a barbed wire fence they found foot long strands of hair resembling they said nothing they had seen in other animals.
Perhaps most recently on Feb 13 another farmer living 10 miles from the Hilsmier farm found similar tracks on his land leading from his chicken coop where his 30 chickens had been slaughtered during the night. According to Turner the blood had been sucked from all of the fowl.
According to Robert Chance a Bel Air Md ecology teacher town commission and well-known expert in Sasquatch these sightings are but three of the 15 reliable reports of alleged encounters with traces of the mysterious creature. Chance according to the York Daily Record article has no doubt that Sasquatch does roam the Pennsylvania – Maryland area and reports as his most convincing evidence a 1975 incident just south of Fawn Grove when a motorist is believed to have struck the creature with his car.
Although it ran from the road immediately after the impact, Chance reports the motorist and police did find chunks of flesh and pieces of long hair embedded in his car. Chance sent the hair samples to scientists in Seattle Wash., who confirmed that it appeared to belong to a rare primate. They further accepted it as conclusive proof that an eastern American sub-species of Sasquatch does exist.
Chance himself had a brief encounter with Sasquatch the article notes in the spring of 1974. While parking his van along woods he heard crashing noises and spotted Sasquatch tracks in the mud. He took up after the creature but was unable to reach it before it disappeared. He did however make a plaster cast of a footprint and found that it matched in detail not only the foot of the eastern American Sasquatch but also the footprints found in the Hilsmier farm nearly four years later.
The ecology teacher believes that Sasquatch came to the area originally from the swamp regions of the south attracted by the cooler climate here. Although he catches fish in spawning season and eats nuts and berries, he is forced to kill rabbits, calves or chickens for animal protein in the wintertime. The protein Chance explains helps the creature to fight off the cold weather.
