The Ohio / Pennsylvania Bigfoot Research Group
Who we are and how to contact us
The Ohio / Pennsylvania Bigfoot Research Group is a volunteer, self funded
organization dedicated to applying scientific methodology to discover the truth
behind the Bigfoot phenomenon. The group has determined that there has been
enough sightings, of a Bigfoot-like creature in the Ohio / Pennsylvania area, to
warrant further research. The founding members began their research in 1978, and
have since purchased or developed specialty and hi-tech equipment required to do
their research properly. The members are selected by merit and objectiveness,
and membership is not open to the general public. The members pursue their
research as a hobby, have no interest
in promoting themselves individually in the media or elsewhere, and they remain anonymous
to protect their professional careers. The groups goals are to
scientifically research the subject, obtain substantial field evidence in the
Ohio/Pennsylvania area, seek and publish correct, accurate information, and to dispel
inaccurate rumors. The group has yet to find enough evidence to provide proof
that a Bigfoot is inhabiting the state of Ohio or Pennsylvania. "We are
confident; if Bigfoot exists in the area, we can find evidence to prove it; we
will not find evidence if Bigfoot is not in the area unlike many other
The group's members are educated and have professional careers in the
following fields: wildlife biology, mechanical, electrical, and electronic
engineering, and business management.
All of the group's information is held strictly confidential in order to
prevent evidence tampering, hoaxing, and the disturbing of witnesses and the
environment. We will not create the type of media frenzy or local hysteria that
the other researchers in the area are know for. We won't question witnesses like
they are on trial; our focus is on finding evidence, not making a story out of a
report. We welcome the opportunity to volunteer to work with law enforcement or
wildlife agencies on Bigfoot related cases, and will provide a written report
upon the conclusion of our investigation.
You may contact the Oh/Pa Bigfoot Research Group several ways, but it is
preferred that you use Email.
To report incidents, it is preferred that you fill out the on-line report form
at the Bigfoot Research
Network web site, which we are members. The mailing address is: PO
Box 376, Newton Falls, OH 44444.
Warning: It is illegal to willfully perpetrate
a hoax, and we may notify local authorities who may choose to prosecute.
Why we won't print lists of incident reports on this site
We will not be listing all our incident reports online. Online incidence listings
can be found elsewhere if you wish to view them. In our opinion, these lists
have not resulted in any further proof of the existence of Bigfoot, and have
only flooded the Internet with rumors and hoaxes, that produce more rumors and
hoaxes. Many have been misled (researchers included), by the abundance of
un-researched and unverified reports found on the Internet, into believing that
Bigfoot is much more common than it is in reality, producing even more bogus
reports. We will only publish our reports when proper supporting evidence is
available to accompany the information. Remember, no conclusive evidence has
been obtained yet.
