FINDING BIGFOOT: Badlands Bigfoot

Animal Planet - Original Air Date: 2/10/2013

Matt, Cliff, Bobo, and Ranae head into the badlands of South Dakota (near Mt. Rushmore) to check out local Sioux sasquatch legends and the Pine Ridge Indian reservation.  (This is a lovely and otherworldly area that my family went to two summers ago, but we saw no bigfoots.)  Ranae is from SD, but the eastern, rolling country, not the west where the badlands are.  They talk to a police chief who saw a figure on his thermal imager that he believes was larger than Bobo -- which everyone but Ranae thinks was probably bigfoot.  (Again, we don't have an actual image they're investigating -- though a witness turns up with footprint photos later.)  The team breaks into two groups (Ranae-Bobo & Matt-Cliff) and does their first night investigation.  (They find only local animals.)  The show then proceeds as usual, with town-hall meeting (with local Sioux), witness interviews/recreations, camp out (Cliff), and a second night investigation.  But, aside from the traditional night noises and false alarms, they come back with the usual: good-sounding stories, and no real proof.
