UPDATE: "....It Appears To Be A Juvenile Sasquatch"

It's furry, walks on all fours, doesn't have a tail and is apparently not a bear.

The only thing certain at the moment is that the images caught by an Elk County hunter have stirred new debate on the Internet about the existence of Bigfoot, or Sasquatch, as believers call the creature of folklore.

Rick Jacobs, the hunter, said he planted the stationary tree camera in Allegheny National Forest, about 115 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, to try to find a handsome buck. Instead, on Sept. 16, the camera caught images of an unusual creature, he said.

"We couldn't figure out what they were," Jacobs said. "I've been hunting for years and I've never seen anything like this."

The hunter said that after a week of trying to decipher what had walked past his camera lens, he contacted the Bigfoot Research Organization.

Stories about Bigfoot are part of North American folklore and some believe the bipedal creature inhabits many parts of the United States and Canada. Scientists, however, say there is no concrete proof that such a creature exists and brush it off as a combination of legend and hoaxes.

Images posted on dozens of Web sites have generated discussions about "Jacob's creature," as the unknown four-legged animal has become known among Bigfoot believers. The exact location of the siting has not been publicized to avoid people flocking to the area.

Paul Majeta of the Bigfoot group said he has been to the northwest Pennsylvania area and done some analysis.

"My impression is that it is not a bear," Majeta said. "It appears to be a primate-like animal. In my opinion, it appears to be a juvenile Sasquatch."

NOTE: There have been several Sasquatch/Bigfoot sightings reported the past 2 years from Westmoreland County, Pa. in the area along the Loyalhanna Creek in and around Chestnut Ridge. This area is about 100 miles or so south of Allegheny National Forest and the specific area we think these recent images were taken. As well, the Lenni-Lenape (Delaware) Indians referred to 3 different man-like creatures that inhabited this area as "Mesingw" (The Masked Being), "Misinghalikun" (Living Solid Face) and "Wsinkhoalican" (The Game Keeper).
