Possible BIGFOOT Observed in Rural Montgomery County, Pennsylvania

A Montgomery County, PA resident had an unsettling sighting of an ape-like creature in September 2023. The witness contacted me for any information that I could provide.

I received the following account:

"Hi. I had an encounter with something but I'm currently unsure as to what. I was told to contact you. Due to personal factors, I moved in with some family to a rural area of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. My aunt's house, where I'm at, sits on one of several hills with a meadow below it. She also owns several acres of woods, with a creek running through them, and so on. It's a very desolate place.

One morning, in September 2023, I woke up around 5 AM to some twigs snapping. I went outside and walked downhill to the meadow, and by some holly bushes that border the woods, I saw a large figure, looking ahead. I called out, at first assuming it was a person, as on occasion we will get hunters (but these are neighbors who give proper identification and basically let us know when they'll be around). Instead of responding, the figure walked away. It seemed to almost shrink into the woods.

It was a large figure, easily six feet minimum. I didn't get the greatest look at it, as it was dark and somewhat far away, but I saw heavy, shaggy fur or hair. Looked like quills. I want to say multiple layers of it. Set back face, noticed large eyebrows and a nose, the head sunk into the torso. It was a mix of brown and gray fur or hair colors.

I returned to the spot in a few hours and stepped over, behind the bushes. All the holly berries from the plants were gone, they were there a few days prior. There were also indents in the ground, maybe footprints. There were sticks snapped off of the trees, and thrown across the ground.

I was certainly unsettled, so I looked into it further and thought I'd concluded that this might've been some sort of ape or apeman (Bigfoot?). I'm not a hunter, doing drugs, nothing like that. It was ape-like. Do you have any thoughts?" P

NOTE: The witness later stated that the encounter occurred near Perkiomenville, PA. Even though the BFRO has no sighting reports from Montgomery County, I have received possible sighting reports in the past. Lon
