FINDING BIGFOOT: Bigfoot & Wolverines

Animal Planet - Original Air Date: 12/16/12

If you've seen the show or read my other reviews by now, you know the drill for this series.  The team goes someplace -- northern lower Michigan in this episode -- following a photo or video.  They evaluate whether they think the video is real or fake (with Ranae, the skeptic, often the only one voting "fake"), then do some night investigations, hold a town hall meeting, talk to witnesses, and have a solo campout.  So, I'll only be remarking on results or unusual evidence during this review.  The inciting incident on this show is a moving truck supposedly being hit by by a bigfoot-thrown log (at night), with footprints as evidence.  Ranae, remains skeptical, citing misidentification.  Naturally, the footprints are no longer around to look at.

One woman in the town hall has an impressive recorded howl that might be a bigfoot, a sound she's heard on numerous nights in the last weeks (including the night previous).  Matt camps out near there, but finds/hears nothing.  For their final search, the team takes to horseback and tries to find places where deer would currently act as prey for sasquatch.  (An idea they maybe should have hit on long ago.)  At night, they hear knocks and howls.  "Show yourselves, you hairy bastards. I want to see you," Ranae declares.  She could not explain the wood knockings.  Sadly, no prints and no video -- at least, though, they have some sounds on tape.  And that's better than a lot of these investigations.  Maybe they should stick around and spend more than a week in Michigan.
