The Search for Bigfoot Comes to Kansas

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A film crew for an Animal Planet network show is coming to Kansas next month to look for evidence that Bigfoot might be roaming the state.

“Finding Bigfoot” producer Sean Mantooth says the TV crew will be in the Wichita area in late January to film scenes for the show. He wouldn’t say where the hunt will take place because he doesn’t want anyone to try to pull a hoax.

The Wichita Eagle reports a town hall meeting is scheduled for Jan. 26 in the Wichita area, but Mantooth says the location hasn’t been determined.

The most recent Bigfoot report in Kansas was in Sedgwick County in 2006 by a husband and wife who said they felt like they were being watched, then heard a guttural growl.
