“Sasquatch Planet” on Monsters & Mysteries Unsolved



The subject of Bigfoot is well-worn terrain on most paranormal shows, and the third episode of the Monsters and Mysteries Unsolved series sought to take us there yet again by examining Sasquatch evidence and encounters, and wound up taking a rather skeptical overall tone.  Steven Kulls, a former private investigator, had his own personal encounter with a supposed Bigfoot in 2011.  Returning to the location of his sighting in the Adirondack Mountains of New York with thermal cameras, a “bionic ear,” and a digital video recording system, Kulls and his team established a security perimeter but failed to discover anything.  They were quick to point out that their failure to discover Bigfoot didn’t mean that he wasn’t out there…

In Pocatello, Idaho a group of high school students saw what they thought to be a Bigfoot at a distance, taking video footage of the same as well as a photo of a footprint.  Their footage was examined by biological anthropologist Dr. Kathy Gonder, who thought that the creature filmed was massive and reflected fluid body movement, although she rather thought that the thing filmed was a bear.  One of the students in the group claimed familiarity with bears, however, and disputed that the sighting was that of a black bear.

Another sighting briefly covered was that of a Canadian woman who in 2007 heard a screaming creature off a deer trail, hearing it running and breaking branches.  She fled to her vehicle following this uncomfortably close encounter.  A mammalogist and anatomist pointed to such aggressive behaviors as being typical of the great apes.

Dr. Joe Nickell, an author and investigator, felt that Sasquatch and Bigfoot are basically major myths that show analogues in other cultures, and have basically migrated between cultures.  Mammalogist and anatomist Dr. Sarmiento echoed this, feeling that belief in Bigfoot fills a void, a need to believe.  In summation, most of the experts presented felt that available evidence for Bigfoot’s existence falls far short of the standard of proof required.  Needed are bones, a carcass, or clear and convincing camera trap evidence…

    It has been amply demonstrated, by the pro-Bigfoot community, just why it is virtually impossible to find Sasquatch remains in the wild. The food chain! Unfortunately, the anti-Bigfoot crowd don’t care about such legitimate explanations. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if a few of the more paranoid skeptics seriously believe that Roger Patterson faked his film by colluding with 20th Century Fox (producers of the original POTA)!

  3. It would be great if you could include links to those videos, if they are on Youtube.

    I want to believe in Bigfoot, but if he does, they should have found proof by now.

    I wrote a funny short story called “One Night with a Sasquatch.” If you would like to read it, I am open to any feedback: https://christopherjohnlindsay.wordpress.com/2016/09/03/the-sasquatch-women-cant-resist/
