Bigfoot Video Evidence: Animal Planet to Air 'Finding Bigfoot' With Bobcat Goldthwait in 2015
Bigfoot enthusiast will have to wait longer than expect to see the premiere of the "Finding Bigfoot" episode featuring comedian Bobcat Goldthwait that was filmed in New Jersey over the summer.
On June 21, the Bigfoot hunters starring on the popular Animal Planet television series took a trip to the mountainous terrain of rural Sussex County, New Jersey in search of the mythical creature. While there, four researchers interviewed people who claim to have seen Bigfoot. They then used the information that they garnered to set up a re-enactment of the sighting to try to prove the existence of Sasquatch, NJ.com reported.
Before beginning their search, the team -- which consists of Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BFRO) President Matt Moneymaker, researchers James "Bobo" Fay and Cliff Barackman, and scientist Ranae Holland -- held a town hall-style meeting where more than a dozen people shared local stories about the legendary beast.
"These are the best stories we've had in years," said one local who attend the town hall wearing a "Keep It Squatchy" cap. "This is Jersey, baby!" yelled another enthusiastic attendee in the audience.
"We were particularly impressed by northern New Jersey," said Moneymaker.
The "Finding Bigfoot" team also brought along comic and bigfoot enthusiast Bobcat Goldthwait on the trip, according to Discovery Press Web.
However, the Jersey episode of Finding Bigfoot has been rescheduled to air next year. According to The Daily Record, Animal Planet made a last-minute decision to change the air from a Sunday in November to sometime in January.
The "Finding Bigfoot" episode featuring Northwest Jersey will be the second episode where the hunters went on a search in New Jersey. The first time, the team came up empty handed when they went on a trek to the Pine Barrens.
