UPRIGHT CRYPTID CANINE Encountered at Piney Fork Tunnel in Pennsylvania

A Pittsburgh photographer describes an incident while she was shooting photographs at the Piney Fork tunnel just south of the city. She claims that she observed an upright cryptid canine.

"This encounter occurred just south of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in October 2018. I'm a professional photographer and work throughout the region. I have been fortunate to have a successful business, great clients, and beautiful landscapes to work with.

I went out one spring day for a wedding engagement shoot. The couple had specifically chosen the abandoned Piney Fork tunnel for the location. I was familiar with it so I agreed. We shot at a few other sites first and then I met them out there late in the afternoon for the best lighting. I picked a good spot and started working. Everything was running smoothly at first until we started hearing the sounds coming from somewhere inside the tunnel. It was long enough that it was dark in the middle so we couldn't see anything past a few hundred feet. It sounded like someone was moving around in there. We tried to ignore it and I just kept taking pictures but the noises got louder like it was coming closer to us.

The couple was now more uncomfortable and they looked tense in the pictures, so I suggested wrapping it up, but they wanted to finish. I got in another few shots before we heard the growling. We stared into the tunnel petrified. The sounds had been unsettling though not actually concerning. But the deep growling meant something very different. It sounded large and threatening. After a quick discussion, we decided to leave and go to a backup location.

I started packing my lenses as the couple walked to their car. The growling continued and sounded as if it was getting closer. There was also a scraping sound. I panicked, grabbed my stuff, and ran for the car. I got in and immediately locked the doors. The couple was already pulling out but I had parked facing the other way and needed to turn around. As I did there was a brief second where my running lights shined into the tunnel entrance. In that second I saw the source of the sound. It was huge!  It definitely was not a stray dog and many times larger than a German Shepherd and it was standing on its hind legs, although it was bent forward. The beast was nearly seven feet tall. The head was covered in thick fur and it had dog-like ears sticking up on the top of its head. I couldn't see the features clearly because it was too far away but I saw the eyes reflecting in the light. The eyes had a deep orangish-red color. I had absolutely no idea what I was seeing, but it walked on two legs. Then I blinked and it was gone.

I followed the couple to the next location. When we got out I asked them if they had seen the thing in the tunnel but they said they hadn't. I wasn't sure if I should tell them what I saw because it sounded too crazy, even though they had heard the growling. I decided to keep the details to myself.

We finished their session as fast as we could. A few days later I was sorting through their photos and I got to the tunnel photos. As I had predicted most were not usable because the couple was too tense and uncomfortable in their poses. I looked through them carefully trying to find the best ones to include, not wanting the location to be a total loss. In the last few images, I saw something weird. It looked like a glare or a light flare over the guy's shoulder. I zoomed in and played with the lighting until I saw it more clearly. It was not a lens flare. It was two orange eyes in the darkness of the tunnel. They appeared in each of the last few photos and it was proof of what I had seen. The creature in the tunnel was real.

I knew that I couldn't include those in the portfolio, not knowing what was leering behind them." K

NOTE: I looked at the photos. There are possible orange eyes in the two photos that I saw, though I'm not positive. The witness did not give me permission to publish the photos but felt compelled to make the report after finding my Pennsylvania Dogman / Upright Canine Reports Map online. If I am given permission to publish in the future, I will post here. Lon
