FINDING BIGFOOT: Holy Cow, It's Bigfoot

Animal Planet - Original Air Date: 3/11/2012

The crew goes to Utah and follows their usual routine of investigating a video (a shadowy figure, seen by firelight; smaller than Bobo and likely, therefore, a person ), doing a night investigation and camping out, talking to locals at a town-hall meeting and then individually, and concluding with a second night investigation.  The most interesting thing in this show is a howl they hear during their second night investigation.  It sure is strange (though it could be a person).  Sadly, this show never subjects its call tapes to examination by zoological experts.  Nor do we even get to hear skeptic Ranae's evaluation of the sound.  Again, another show with interesting witness stories, but -- aside from the "call" -- no solid evidence.

FINDING BIGFOOT: Hoosier Bigfoot

Animal Planet - Original Air Date: 3/4/12

The crew heads to Indiana to check out a "creature" video & see the state's forestland.  Cliff notes that the film looks like a gorilla suit; Ranae notes it behaves like a human (hoaxer).  It'd be nice if one of these videographers would admit to hoaxing--but these folks won't even appear unblurred.  The group's recreation indicates that the thing was smaller than Bobo, thus probably a hoax, though the witness may not have been in on it.  The crew then heads south to do their usual investigations and town-hall meeting.

The rest of the show is taken up with the standard talking to witnesses and day/night investigations.  This time, the decide to set off some fireworks to attract "curious" squatches (and get coyotes instead).  Then they hear the usual "mysterious" sounds and knocks.  In the end, more stories but no proof.  Just another day at the Finding Bigfoot office.
