On May 14th Bigfoot enthusiast, John Winesickle from Paint Township, PA, dialed 9-1-1 to inform police that he had proof of the existence of Bigfoot, in the form of a foot print.
Here is a portion of the 9-1-1 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.”
An officer arrived at the house and suggested the print might be that of a bear instead, not a Bigfoot, to which Winesickle replied that he could definitely tell the difference between a bear footprint and a Bigfoot print.When the story first broke rumors circulated that the 9-1-1 call was related to the shooting, and killing of a Bigfoot. The police report was presented on the Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society’s Facebook page, and the report indicates that the investigating officer was only there to check a footprint claim, nothing more.
An MP3 of the 9-1-1 call can be found at DoubtfulNews.com. It’s fairly humorous, but I’m hoping charges or fines were levied against the man for wasting 9-1-1 operator time and that of the police force.
