Fred Saluga, West Virginia ..., 8 Oct 2014 [cached]
Fred Saluga, West Virginia state director and Pennsylvania regional director for the Mutual UFO Network, said the group's seventh annual Pittsburgh UFO-Creature Conference will feature a "Bigfoot and Mysterious Creatures" presentation questioning whether the legendary sasquatch could be a visitor from another world.
Saluga said he will lead the discussion with Brian Seech, director of the Center for the Unexplained, during the conference, which is scheduled to begin Nov. 8 at Westmoreland County Community College.
"There are two different fields of thought with Bigfoot: one that Bigfoot is flesh and blood and, two, that he is inter-dimensional or alien," Saluga told WTAE-TV, Pittsburgh.
Saluga said Fayette County, Pa., has long been a hotbed of reported Bigfoot activity, but no one has ever successfully captured one of the legendary apes.
"It's like someone put him down and then picked him up. Is that possible for a flesh-and-blood animal? Saluga asked.
He said researchers should keep an open mind until hard evidence is available.
"Until we find out what they are, there are no experts," he said.

"This is to give the community a better understanding of the paranormal community," explained Saluga, a longtime UFO investigator who has taught free classes on the subject at Eastern Gateway Community College and will have an upcoming 10-week class there in the near future.
"A lot of people have had some type of incident or experience. They don't know who to talk to, what to say, so we are there. You can come and talk to the people, and it's therapy, too," he said.
Saluga is confident there will be a good turnout for the initial meeting and subsequent ones.
A former law enforcement officer, Saluga is the state director of MUFON of West Virginia. MUFON, an acronym for Mutual UFO Network Inc., is a nonprofit corporation founded in 1969 that's dedicated through its volunteers to resolving the scientific enigma known collectively as UFOs.
He also is a Western Pennsylvania section director of MUFON of Pennsylvania. He estimated that he has investigated "a couple thousand" UFO reports since the 1970s.
Saluga said a discussion he had in recent months was with an area resident who claimed to have had a "Mothman" sighting in West Virginia about 10 years ago. Mothman is a legendary birdlike creature reportedly seen in the Point Pleasant area of West Virginia.
"She was talking to me, and she was getting goosebumps. Her voice started cracking like she was actually scared telling me what she was telling me," he said.
Saluga said "shadow people" constitute another example of the paranormal. "When you look through the side of your eyes and see a shadow, they call them shadow people. They're actually there they say. I don't know. I've never seen one."
The forum is a nonjudgmental setting for people to talk about such topics, according to Saluga.
"It is good to get it off your chest. At lot of people need someone to talk to," Saluga said.
