Did someone shoot and kill a Bigfoot in Pennsylvania and then call 911 to say he had proof of the yet-to-be-proven creature?
After confusing reports over the past couple of weeks, it appears this was a case of a story that became mired in rumor and fiction.
Back on May 14, John Winesickle, a resident of Paint Township in Pennsylvania's Somerset County, called 911, claiming to have proof of Bigfoot, according to WTAJ News.
Excerpt from the 911 call:
DISPATCHER: "He wants a police officer to come to his residence. He apparently has proof there of Bigfoot."
OFFICER: "Bigfoot, right?"DISPATCHER: "That's affirmative. He has evidence proving Bigfoot."
Winesickle showed some footprints to an investigating officer, who concluded the tracks had been made by a bear (see print image below).
When WTAJ suggested they were bear prints to Winesickle, he adamantly refused to believe it.
