Bigfoot in America

Show Archive
Date: Thursday - May 8, 2003
Host: George Noory
Guests: Loren Coleman, Scott Hallock, Kevin Healey

Cryptozoologist Loren Coleman discussed his research into the Bigfoot phenomenon on Thursday night's show. He estimates there are at least 1500 of the hairy bipedal creatures spread out across the Pacific Northwest. While tests of hair samples and droppings have proved inconclusive, Coleman believes there is solid evidence for Bigfoot's existence such as in the large footprints found at sites, and the footage from the 1967 Patterson film.

The recent death of Ray Wallace and his family's subsequent confession that Wallace used fake feet to hoax the 1958 Bluff Creek discovery of large tracks, led to some media reports dismissing the entire phenomenon. But Coleman pointed out that Wallace was known as a prankster and that the media incorrectly lumped his '58 hoax in with the Patterson film, tarnishing a completely separate event.

"Sex and the Single Sasquatch," is the title of one of the chapters from his latest book, Coleman said. There was one alleged incident where a witness saw a Bigfoot trying to mate with a cow. "Suka, suka, suka," was the vocal sound Albert Osmond heard, when he was kidnapped by a group of Bigfoot in order to impregnate a young female, Coleman recounted. He said there are several reports of men being kidnapped for this purpose.

Scare Tactics

Producers Scott Hallock and Kevin Healey appeared in the first half-hour of Thursday's show to talk about their new alternative reality show Scare Tactics which recently debuted on the Sci-Fi Channel.

They discussed how they developed the program which creates cinematic scenarios using elements such as fake Bigfoot and UFO aliens to scare an unsuspecting participant into thinking that it's real.
