DATELINE: Superior Research
This year’s Part Two of the notable documentary on Bigfoot by Seth Breedlove did not disappoint. Though the history and legend was on-spot and in-depth, his decision to follow-up with a search for the animal may have proven foolhardy.
In his hands, this focus is again unusual and takes a position, even with witnesses and investigators, that is a bit different. He even admits that a year on the trail of Bigfoot is enough to help him understand the bug that bites those who devote their lives and personal resources to the search. He goes out on several daunting night-time searches.
A surprising area in Oklahoma is a virgin forest near the Arkansas border, not what you think of as the great plains. It is a habitat that is so dark and lonely that no humans have settled here. A few camps of investigators have been established.
A hotspot called Area X, this place contains a group that is ready to take down a Bigfoot for science. Yes, the only way to truly prove that Bigfoot exists is to bring one in dead. To that end, they have powerful weapons, hide in the bush, wear camouflage, and are hunting for one Bigfoot.
Their view is that sacrificing one ape is necessary to protect all of them.
So, far after five years, there is no luck in killing one. However, audio tapes document rock throwing attacks and wood tree banging. The unidentifiable shrieks can be anything.
A pair of big eyes is called possible observation, but it seemed to be an owl, not a Bigfoot.
One of the researchers is Adam Duggan, a handsome young man who claims to be a skeptic, but also is listed as a producer and actor in Bigfoot films. Even if he is a skeptic, he may not be above the search as a route to fame and fortune.
Science has failed Bigfoot research, and those who have tried to tie UFOs and paranormal to Bigfoot have not helped the quest. Two unproven theories tend to cancel each other.
Most researchers are self-funded and there are hardly an networks of shared research. It is an expensive and time-consuming hobby, and those who have given it up are like ex-alcoholics, warning off others.
Another brilliant effort from producer and director Seth Breedlove.
