“This is No Joke”: Bigfoot Shooting Reported by Police in Altoona, PA


Was Bigfoot shot and killed in Altoona, PA this morning? It’s possible says Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society.

In a message posted earlier today to the PBS facebook page, a man going by the name “Daniel C” claimed to have overheard a call dispatched across his police scanner of an apparent shooting of what he described as a Bigfoot. He also claims a body was retrieved from the scene.

“You guys might want to check out the Somerset County state police call log,” he wrote. “I heard a call come over my scanner  [saying that] a gobbler hunter shot a Bigfoot this morning and they did find a body. This is no joke, that call was real. ”


Bigfoot Evidence reported yesterday that Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society president Eric Altman has made a formal statement:

At this point all this is rumor and a claim. Once I have more info and more details, I’ll update you. I can confirm we are investigating this claim, but as of right now. That’s all it is, is a claim. We do not have any information or proof to support this claim. Once I have more information that I can confirm, I will let you know. Until we do, no further rumors will be released. We do not want to jeopardize any possible legitimate information at this time.

No more information is known about the location of the shooting or the state of the alleged body. Here’s hoping the coming days bring more information as the story unfolds, but judging by how tales of murdered monsters usually pan out, I wouldn’t get my hopes up.

What do you think of the news? Did someone finally manage to blast Bigfoot? Or is someone having a little fun at ‘Footers’ expense? Share your thoughts with us on Facebook, on twitter @WhoForted, or in the comments below!
