(Dauphin County, PA) -- State police are investigating a reported sighting of "Bigfoot," by enthusiast John Reed, who claims to have encountered the creature several weeks ago in the woods of central Pennsylvania.
Reed, who has been tracking Bigfoot since he was a child, says he was out camping with his girlfriend when a large animal passed by their camper.
The pair attempted to pursue the animal in the van and claim to have seen the animal looking back at them through the trees.
Reed's camper has since suffered damage while parked in the same area he claims to have encountered the creature. While Reed says some of the damage may have been caused by vandals, he believes some of it was a warning from Bigfoot to get off his territory.
