KDKA: Naked Man Spotted on North Park Trails

Police want to talk to the man to see if he is a naturalist or if something sinister is going on, KDKA reported.

KDKA is reporting that a naked man has been spotted strolling the trails of North Park.

Police would like to talk to the man to see if he is a naturalist or if something more sinister is going on, KDKA reporter John Shumway said.

The man has been spotted on trails in the far eastern end of North Park, near Hemlock Apartments in Hampton, according to KDKA.

The TV station interviewed a woman who was walking her dog about 10 a.m. Wednesday when she “saw someone out of the corner of my eye. I looked over and there was an older man walking, with like pure white hair, kind of a bigger build and he was completely naked, strolling through the woods.

“He casually turned to look at me and then casually turned away. Not a care in the world.”

The woman said she “turned around and hightailed it out very quickly.”

One neighbor told KDKA that, with the weather turning cold, the problem might take care of itself.

Ok Bob....You got me on his one. This isn't Victorian England, but then again its not pre-Vesuvius Pompeii either. For the sake of decency, you just can't have old naked geezers walking non-chalantly thru a public park, where there are kids and people who take issue with this sort of thing. Personally, it wouldn't alarm me, but I can see how it could be disconcerting to others. This incident goes way beyond ridiculous to the point that, like in some situations in life, you just have to bow to the absurd. However, the next time that I am walking thru North Park and find a "naturalist" just strolling by, I'll be sure to unleash my dog Jake, a 130 lb. Doberman / Dane mix to see where he goes. Jake absolutly hates naked old men strolling thru "his park" and it would be good sport to see how fast your average, "run of the mill" naturalist can run! :)~~~

assuming this guy isn't do anything else wrong / illegal, who cares . let him enjoy the back-trails of north park, if he likes . i'm sure he pays his taxes . let him have his liberty . something tells me your dog couldn't care less about naked humans . dogs are naked naturalists, after-all . something to think about .

OK....I give up. You win. As I said, some days you just have to bow to the absurd.

Sure he can streak if he wants, but he cant just parade in front of women who are also using the trail, that's called indecent exposure and its illegal. He can get back to nature all he wants but he also should be ducking behind a tree when other people come along.
