Bigfoot / Upright Canine Activity Increasing in Northeast Pennsylvania

It's become apparent that northeast Pennsylvania has become more active over the past few years. Bigfoot and upright canine activity has substantially increased. The following accounts were recently posted on social media. The Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research team is in search for a reliable and seasoned cryptid investigator in this part of the state. If interested, please contact me directly

I thought I'd post this on the odd chance that someone else in the Jackson / Susquehanna / New Milford /NEPA (NorthEast Pennsylvania) area had similar experiences. My brother-in-law - my wife's brother - lives basically in the woods. There are other homes nearby but you really can't see them at all when the leaves are on the trees. If you look at a map, look at the area between Susquehanna and Jackson. That's where he is. There's a large State Game Land 35. He told us - if I've got the story right - that he saw the head a figure peer in the back window, and it banged on - hit- the back wall of the house with, presumably, it's hand. The thing is, the back window is up high, like 8'+ high because there's a good 3-4' crawl space under the house there. And the spot he heard the bang was up higher than that, probably 10' or more. So it couldn't have been a human. The creature must have been close to 8' tall. He's a guy that likes a good-hearted joke but he's not a prankster, and if he did pull our legs about it, he would have come clean shortly after. He's a serious guy mostly, so for him to tell this story seriously and stick to it - I believe he had an experience. RN


My best friends dad told me a story about an encounter he had as a young man around NEPA, if I remember correctly it was out by Camp Acahela or in that general vicinity.

He and some buddies went out on a camping trip one weekend to fish. They were following a utility line cut through the woods and they saw an old refrigerator on the ground. For whatever reason, some of them decided to pee on it. They got to their camping spot a while later, set up and had a fire before heading to bed.

At some point in the middle of the night, he was woken up by what he described to me as the scariest sound he's ever heard, something that started as a super low howl that transitioned into a long scream. What scared him the most was how close whatever this thing was sounded. He's an avid hunter, has spent a lot of time in the woods of NEPA and has never heard a sound even remotely similar since.

They woke up the next morning and every single one of them heard the sound but was too afraid to get up and see what it was. The rest of their trip was uneventful until the walk out when they passed the old refrigerator that they had all peed on, except now, it was all the way off the ground and stuck in a nook of a tree.

Just theorizing of course, but maybe whatever it was took the scent of their urine as an attempt at marking territory and was pissed because of it.

Take it with a grain of salt, of course. I trust this guy but I wasn't there to see it myself. My brother was a scout at Acahela though and he's heard talk about bigfoot in the area, and it wouldn't surprise me at all cause that area is pretty remote. FS


I’m from Montrose, and I’ve spent a lot of time in the State Game Lands 35 in Hallstead (for those that don’t know, it’s 7772 acres of untouched land) and have had a number of those silent moments where not even the creeks or birds are making noise for some reason. I’ve never seen anything really mysterious but over years of hunting and hiking in those game lands, I have zero doubt that there’s plenty of room for literally any cryptids to live comfortably without human intervention.

I’ll add that I have seen and heard things that were super disconcerting, but nothing I can identify as legitimately a possible Sasquatch. Even carrying some pretty powerful guns and hunting black bears, there have been some moments, especially before the sun comes up, when I’ve been seriously convinced something was following me. It’s got the same scary mystery that the ocean does. JB

Facebook event announcement: Jack Cary - Crypto Researcher / Investigator - Arcane Radio

This week I welcome crypto researcher and investigator Jack Cary to Arcane Radio. Jack is the founder and current director at the Paranormal Intelligence Agency and a protege of the late JC Johnson at Crypto Four Corners, where he continues as a researcher. He is also a member of Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research. After many years of investigating crypto-creatures and paranormal phenomena in North America he has accumulated mounds of evidence that may prove the existence of strange creatures. His research lends credence to the notion that interdimensional doorways intermittently open, permitting the unintentional transference of a person, or being, across parallel realities and time. Jack's recent book is titled 'Paranormal Planet.' and his website can be found at - This should be an interesting show!
