The Canadian television production Creepy Canada ran out of Canadian subjects for the show, so they traveled to the US to film with Stan Gordon of PA. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ran an article about the difficulties the film crew were having because of snow in the area.
The snow caused a power failure that halted filming of the scene that is one of the strangest cases I have ever heard of. It took place on October 25, 1973 in Uniontown, PA. That case is one of the strangest that I have ever heard of. The details of the case are available at Stan’s website. The incident involved UFO and Bigfoot-like creature activity. I have heard Stan talk about the case in person at the 2003 Ohio Bigfoot Conference. Personally, I don’t know what to make of it.
As Stan writes on his site “Briefly, on the night of October 25, 1973, My UFO Hotline was active with UFO reports from around the state. About 10:30 P.M. that evening, I received a call from state trooper from the Uniontown barracks concerning an incident which he had just returned from investigating. One of those involved, was put on the phone for me to interview. At about 9 P.M. about 15 people observed a very large red spherical object hovering low in the sky which began to descend towards a pasture. The witness and two boys proceeded up the field and observed a white dome shaped object on the ground that illuminated the area, and was making a loud whirring sound. It was estimated at about 100 feet in diameter. They were about 250 feet from the object, and about 75 feet from a fence line. Walking along the fence line were two tall figures, 7 to 9 feet tall, covered with hair, and arms hanging down past the knees, and displaying glowing green eyes.”
“The creatures were fired upon, first tracers were shot overhead, then live ammo was used. The largest of the two creatures turned towards the other almost touching it, and at the same time the object in the field disappeared, and the sound stopped. The creatures slowly walked towards the woods. One boy had already ran home, the other two left the field, went to the farmhouse and moved the family members to a neighbor’s home, and called the state police. When the trooper arrived he and the main witness went to the site, and where the object had landed there was a glowing area, that according to the trooper was about 150 feet in diameter. He said he could read a newspaper from the amount of light that it was emitting. The farm animals refused to go into the area. The witness we talked with has always stated that before they left the field, the largest of the two creatures was seen in the woods about 10 feet from them, and he shot at it and it struck the fence that stood between them.”
Strange days indeed…
