Update: Central Pennsylvania Dogman / Bi-Pedal Canine Investigation - 9/4/2015

Here is the most recent update:

9/3/2015 - I am currently a resident of Altoona, PA. I am writing this to report a strange encounter I experienced with a friend of mine in the early morning hours of Sun. March 17th, 2013. The incident is now over two years old. I chose not to report this event prior to now due to an unwillingness to expose myself (or my family and friends) to public scrutiny. In light of the recent spate of similar sightings in Central Pennsylvania, I have changed my mind. Perhaps our experience will help with the current research. As such, I would like to make my intention clear that myself and any persons mentioned please retain anonymity at this time. Reporting a “Bigfoot” or even a UFO sighting is one thing, but this is somewhat different.

On the evening in question, a friend and I were returning from a job that I had performed in Williamsburg, PA. My friend was driving. To the best of my recollection, the incident occurred somewhere between 1:30 a.m. and 2:00 a.m. on the morning of March 17th. We were traveling SW on Rte. 22 through what is locally known as, “Geeseytown”, a rural suburb of Hollidaysburg, PA. As we rounded a little curve in the road our attention was drawn to our left on the opposite side of the road. Standing/squatting in a clearing a few feet off the side of the road was some kind of creature. My friend wasn’t driving very fast and slowed a bit as we approached. Our initial view of it was from its dorsal side, as it was facing away from us. It came into profile as we passed with its right side to us. It struck me immediately that the creature had a combination of both human and canine features. It was squatting down on its legs close to the ground, but was doing so in a bi-pedal fashion. The legs had the stifle joint and hock characteristic of a canine, not like a human leg. It had its front limbs/arms in front of it, and I believe it was possibly crouched over something, maybe a smaller animal. The arms were long in proportion to its body. I recall thinking the hands were more human-like as opposed to paws. Its torso seemed to be somewhat hunched forward. I had the impression that at any moment it could have gone to all fours quite comfortably. The creature’s chest was not broad like a human’s, but had a pronounced forward angled breastbone like a canid. It gave an impression of great strength, having distinct and well defined musculature, but was not built on a massive frame. It seemed more thin and sinewy. If it had stood fully erect, I would estimate that the creature would have been close to seven feet tall. It was covered in fur that was grayish-silver in color. The creature seemed unnaturally shiny, although this could have been a reflection from the headlights or the moon. It had pointy erect canine ears that were somewhat layed back on its head. The head was large and very wolf-like in overall appearance. The muzzle was also very wolf-like/canid although the snout wasn’t exceptionally elongated. It had canine like teeth. To the best of my recollection the eyes were an amberish color, but may have had a reddish glow/reflection to them. It had a wolf-like tail. It turned its head to watch us and tracked us as we passed. It seemed quite aware of our presence.

My friend and I continued in stunned silence for a few moments. When the creature was no longer in view, I turned and asked my friend what we had just seen. “We just saw a (f**king) werewolf” were his exact words. I agree that that was pretty much my own assessment. I asked if he would turn the car around, but he absolutely refused to do so. We spent the rest of the trip debating as to whether it could have been a dog or even someone’s escaped pet wolf, but to be honest, it just wasn’t. I’m sure of that. Both my friend and I are experienced outdoorsmen and neither one of us have ever seen anything fitting that description before. I was actually raised not far from the area and know it quite well. I have spoken to my friend about this and either one of us would be willing to take a polygraph concerning this incident. Please feel free to contact me about any questions you may have. Thank you, Name withheld

I had the opportunity to speak to both witnesses. Each mentioned a interesting point...that this creature had a 'silvery' aura around it. That's a very unique detail and may be an important point. This sighting, in particular, has raised my hackles a bit...because it suggests that a supernatural aspect may exist with this being.

Butch Witkowski and I are familiar with some of the folklore associated with the Lenni-Lenape (Delaware) people, who inhabited central Pennsylvania for many generations. Butch has already consulted a Cherokee shaman / elder who was referred to him by an associate. I plan to research more of the Lenni-Lenape traditions for possible links to this being.

All updates will be posted on Phantoms & Monsters.

We are asking any and all witnesses to come forward with information. You can remain will have our strictest confidence.

We will be sharing sighting information with other researchers in order to comprehensively cover all reported areas. This is a serious investigation and we want to be diligent when gathering evidence. A broad boots-on-the-ground investigation is planned to begin shortly.

Daily 2 Cents: Red UFO During Atlas Rocket Launch -- Glowing Blue Lady...Alien or Angel? -- Shocking India 'Rape Amnesty'

Red UFO During Atlas Rocket Launch

I received this on Sept 3rd:

My wife stopped to watch the launch of the Atlas Rocket early morning on her way to work. She said she saw a red glowing object going around the smoke plume of the rocket, she has seen many launches but this was different, so she started to take pictures of it. In them you see the light as it goes around the bottom of the rocket.

She called me and emailed the pictures, I am a semi retired electronics engineer (67 years old ), and worked for the N.R.O. At the Cape Canaveral air force station .I must admit it is interesting.

Glowing Blue Lady...Alien or Angel?

Atlanta, GA - 1994-09-15 - 12:00AM: I was having a really hard time and had become very depressed for an extended period of time. Fell asleep this night and was woken because my arm was hanging over side of bed and something was "stroking my hand". I awoke and thought it was odd my cat would be awake and rubbing up against my hand at this time of night. I turned my head and this "thing" with huge blue eyes was so close to my face that I could feel her nose touching mine. I was TERRIFIED. I whipped my hand out of hers and sat straight up in bed and screamed at her "WHAT DO YOU WANT!' Within seconds she glided up from her lying down position (she had been laying long wise with her legs straight out and her head propped on her bent "elbow". And she just kinda "glided" her whole body up to a standing position. She looked at me the whole time but then turned and started "walking away" - although her "feet" never touched the ground - she was like walking / hovering about an inch above the ground. But as she started leaving, I realized I wasn't scared at all and actually felt a warm "love-like" feeling. And I truly couldn't believe this "thing" was not going to say or do anything but leave. It kinda baffled me so I said "WAIT! Why are you here?!" She stopped at the foot of my bed and turned to look right at me.

[this is when i was really able to evaluate her - she had long skinny legs, long skinny arms, long skinning fingers / hands, skinny body and although she had no defining "parts" somehow I had this clear sense that it was "female" - I dont know why; HUGE eyes (they had a big blue iris)and a tiny tiny little pointy nose - she did "look" like the form of pictures of aliens I have seen BUT her head was normal sized and she was this absolutely beautiful glowing blue color - Like the color of those little lights at the airport but more clear? pure? not sure how to describe it. This blue glow reflected onto the wall on the side she was closest too and the ceiling above her, but not in front of her or onto my bed. But the glow felt "warm". The other thing that really stood out to me as I thought about it was that this "being" didnt seem to be "highly intelligent" as I had always heard and assumed. When I looked into her eyes it was as if I was looking into the eyes of a big golden lab - not stupid but not super intelligent - more like looking into the eyes of a loving, loyal dog]

Now as I asked her this question, she stared at me and didnt talk, but I could "hear" everything she was saying in my head but she didnt say much. She just looked at me with these big beautiful eyes and said "Sorry, gotta go!", and she turned and hover-walked down the hall. I remember I could see the blue glow reflecting onto the sides of the hall as she walked down it - and then she turned to the left, which was really odd (I had two doors to the outside - one to the right that went out to the front, which is the way everyone came and left and one to the back, which went to a little excluded backyard that no one ever used - she turned to the door to the left out to the backyard - I saw her walk to it and then poof! she was gone and so was the blue light and the warmth (this was a basement apartment) I never heard a door open or close so it was like she just walked through it.

As I sat there stunned, I looked around to see my cat still curled in a ball sound asleep - she had never woken. I thought to my self - was I dreaming? and decided to pinch myself in the arm - and it hurt and then my pet cat, woke briefly and then put her head down like she was exhausted. I just couldnt stop staring at the door / area where the Blue Lady had left - I almost expected her to come back but she never did.

I dont know why she came to me but I did snap out of that depression the next morning and went on with life but I have never forgotten her. That was 21 years ago.

What I would like to know is has anyone had positive experiences with these beings like I did and has anyone ever seen anything like the being I did - Glowing Blue Lady? Believe me, I was absolutely terrified when I first woke and saw her but then I just felt all this "love". Is there ANYONE out there that experienced something like I did? ANYONE? I know my experience sounds "crazy" but I also am absolutely CERTAIN it was real. No doubts at all. - MUFON CMS


Black Bear w/ Blue Head

Aaron Smith had been driving along a road in British Columbia when he spotted something very unusual.

It had been around 5:15pm and he was heading home from work near Silvermere Lake when he stopped to capture some footage of what appeared to be a black bear with a distinctly blue head.

The peculiar spectacle had attracted the attention of several other motorists who had stopped by the roadside as well but none of them could figure out what might have given the animal its unusual hue.

When he got home Smith uploaded the footage he'd taken on to social media where it managed to attract even more attention. He also reported what he's seen to the Conservation Officer Service.

The story behind the bear's strange affliction however continues to remain a mystery.

Shocking India 'Rape Amnesty'

TWO SISTERS have been told they will be repeatedly gang-raped as "punishment" for crimes committed by their brother.

An all-male council in an Indian village ruled the pair, aged 15 and 23, should be repeatedly raped, have their faces blackened and then be made to walk around naked because their brother ran off with a woman of a higher caste.

The decision to inflict the prehistoric punishment on the girls has sparked international outrage.

A petition demanding the evil ruling be reversed has been launched by Amnesty International.

"Unelected village councils such as this are widespread in parts of India," it said.

"More often than not they are made up of older men from dominant cases, who prescribe rules for social behaviour and interaction in villages.

"Nothing could justify this abhorrent punishment. It's not fair.

"It's not right. And it's against the law."

The shocking ruling was made in a remote village in the Baghpat district of northern India.

The council, known as a khap panchyat, has vowed to "avenge the dishonour" of the womens' brother by sentencing them to the barbaric punishment.

According to Indian news sources the brother, named Ravi, fell in love with a woman from a higher caste and may have impregnated his lover.

The Amnesty petition, which has already been signed over 40,000 times, reads: "Your eyes do not deceive you.

"An elected all-male village council in India has ordered that 23-year-old Meenakshi Kumari and her 15-year-old sister are raped.

"The 'sentence' was handed down as punishment after their brother eloped with a married woman.

"They also ordered for the sisters to be paraded naked with blackened faces.

"Nothing could justify this abhorrent punishment.

"Demand that the the local authorities intervene immediately." - Sisters to be repeatedly gang-raped as punishment for their brother's crimes

Passion or Demise

November, mid-1970s – Pennsylvania, USA

A 50-something woman named Kim, from Pennsylvania, called into Darkness Radio to tell of a bizarre experience her father (now 73) had while camping in the Pennsylvania woods in the mid-1970s. Back when she was around 10 years old, her father returned home from hunting. He seemed very disturbed and even burned his clothes, something Kim found to be very strange. Years later, she asked him about what happened and he decided to tell her.

It was November, mid-1970s. Deer season. Her father and his friend had gone deer hunting but were having no luck.

“Where they were hunting at was kinda new terrain to them. And if you've ever been deep in the Pennsylvania woods, it can get dark. It gets pitch black. Even with a decent flashlight, you can get lost - really easily. They saw a deer. He went for it. He shot it – and, I know, all the hunters out there love to know, my dad never wounded an animal and never gone and tracked it. They found it but it ran off. They ran after it and it's getting darker by the minute. Sadly, they didn't find it. However they did find that they were completely lost. They had two choices: One, try to find a way out of the woods and possibly not find their way, making the situation even worse. They weren’t carrying cellphones back then. Two, they could make a fire and take their chances with the elements until morning. But the decision was kinda made for them because, up ahead, they could make out the form of a structure. It turned out to be an old house. They looked at each other and shrugged and headed right for it. It was freezing.

The door was missing so no need to knock. They checked out the downstairs. It was obviously vacant for some time. It had empty beer cans all over the floor. Probably a party site. Then they went upstairs, it was much warmer. They found a room that had a mattress on the floor and one window that wasn't busted out. It took them about three seconds before they laid down and passed out from total exhaustion. After many hours, my dad heard his buddy coughing and then the coughing turned into like gasps for air. He rolled over and, he swears, he saw a woman, partially nude with long matted hair, sitting on top of his partner choking the life out of him.

Without even hesitating, he grabs his rifle and tries to smack the woman and the top of his rifle came right down through her and on the top of his forehead. The woman, or at least the thing that appeared to be a woman, was standing in my father's face. He looked at her. Suddenly she didn’t have one. No face. He said that he opened his mouth to scream but nothing came out. And then he came back to the reality in the form that his buddy jumped up and cracked him right on his jaw. He desperately tried to explain his actions, you know, for hitting him but he was mad.

It was light enough to see their way out of their woods and they did. They drove home. Not a word was spoken. He dropped him off at his home. A few days later he came over to talk to my dad. I guess, after my dad dropped him off at home, his wife took him to the E.R. to get a couple of stitches. He told the doctor that he hit his head climbing out of a tree. That's the same thing he told his wife. The E.R. doctor asked his wife to go out and have a seat in the waiting area, that they would be a few more minutes. The doctor asked him if he was sure how he came about his injuries, if there was anything else he wanted to add or abject. “What to do you mean injuries?' the friend asked. The Doc said, 'Well, your neck son, it looks like that in most strangling death's I’ve seen. Did your wife catch you deer hunting without your gun, maybe?' He got off the gurney, found the restroom and looked at his head and that's when he saw what the doctor saw. There were perfect little hand prints around his neck. He came over to ask my dad to recall the events of the night, and he made a confession to my dad that just as soon as my dad awoke him by smacking him, he had been dreaming about making love to the most beautiful woman he'd ever seen in his life.”
