Just another day in Clearfield County PA

Everyday life in Clearfield County PA is outlined in the daily police blog.

Lawrence Township
An act of criminal mischief was reported at Edgewood Apartments.

Police assisted with a medical emergency at Clearfield Elementary School.

A disorderly conduct complaint was reported in Hillsdale.

Officers received a noise complaint in the Glen Richey area.

Someone reported an alleged “bigfoot” sighting in the Bowman’s Hill/Sheep Rocks area, but the information couldn’t be substantiated and the sighting is unconfirmed.

Police were unable to locate a reported drug violation at Lawrence Park Village.

Following a report of a disturbance at an area business, police responded and found the individual had left the premises and no further assistance was required.

Someone reported a possible Internet scam.

Wait… Bigfoot?

And then this!

The Progress News: Bigfoot in Clearfield? Sightings prompt signage

Lawrence Township Police continue to receive unconfirmed reports regarding “Bigfoot” sightings in the River Road/Kerr Addition area.

Police have yet to secure evidence to validate these encounters, but caution motorists traveling on River Road to be alert for increased animal activity. Increased animal activity is believed to be the result of improving weather conditions.

As a precaution, signs have been erected in these “crossing areas.”

So, I contacted the Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society to see what was what. Eric Altman says:

“It is to promote an artist who is putting out a 12-foot tall Bigfoot statue in the park.” After contacting the reporter and police, he discovered it is a stunt to build anticipation and attention.

    Perhaps, just as demonic figures are supposed to thrive on fear, cryptids feed off of hoaxes. That’s why they’re so closely entangled. It’s quantum.

    Maybe it was Bigfoot committing the drug violation at Lawrence Park Village?
