Just as they were hunkering down for Memorial Day weekend, police in Altoona, Pa., received a 911 call reporting tracks in the local woods made by Bigfoot.

According to reports, local citizen John Winesickle walked the responding police officer through the woods behind his house pointing out the tracks.

The investigating officer concluded that the tracks were made by a bear.

Among believers, Bigfoot is purported to be a half-human, hairy ape-like critter that lives mainly in the forests of the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. — although Bigfoot sightings have been reported across the North American continent.

Also known as Sasquatch, believers have petitioned a number of state governments requesting recognition for the half-human/half-animal’s rights as indigenous Native Americans. Bigfoot is thought to be the result of a mating between modern human females and something else. Think Neanderthals in the U.S.

Most "eyewitness" reports describe the creature as being roughly 6 feet, 10 inches tall, covered in brown hair, weighing about 500 pounds, big eyes, and a low forehead. Sound like a bear? That’s what local police concluded after investigating the 911 call.

Expeditions are regularly scheduled to track the hybrid, thought to be the result of mating with human females 15,000 years ago.

For those who are interested, there are openings available for an expedition to search for the elusive Bigfoot in the Michigan Upper Peninsula at the end of July with The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization.
