The greater Asheville area has been targeted as a location with plenty of Bigfoot activity according to producer Sean Mantooth. The Finding Bigfoot episode will cover Asheville and Western North Carolina and is set to air approx 4-6 months after its February filming. The Henderson County Bigfoot sighting and video were mentioned as part of the recent Bigfoot activity which caught the shows attention. Whether or not North Carolina will lead to proof of the elusive cryptid we will have to wait and see, but it should as always be an entertaining episode. Could the team finally prove the North Carolina Bigfoot exists?


Animal Planet is coming to Asheville in search of Sasquatch, and the TV crew seeks stories from locals at a town hall event on Feb. 9.

The show, “Finding Bigfoot,” follows four researchers who track the mythical beast around the world, aided by local lore. The episode featuring Asheville and Western North Carolina will film later this year, approximately four-to-six months after the February filming, said producer Sean Mantooth.

“We’ve done two previous episodes in East Tennessee and are now branching out across the border,” Mantooth said. “We only pick areas that have enough Bigfoot activity to warrant filming an episode of the show at. So while I can’t elaborate too much, rest assured that the greater Asheville area is Bigfoot Country.”

In August, the Citizen-Times released a video of a Henderson County Bigfoot sighting that went viral online.

“The only thing I can say about the Bigfoot sighting earlier in the summer is that we’re aware of it,” Mantooth said.

Bigfoot sightings reported by U.S. troops in Vietnam


Reports from U.S. Troops of a not quite human and not quite ape creature were reported from the Kontum Province of Vietnam, near Cambodia and Loas. The locals call the creature “Nguoi Rung” or people of the forest which many believe may actually be Bigfoot. Sightings of the Vietnam Bigfoot go back years, but many consider the creature to be nothing more than folklore as no solid evidence of its existence has yet been found. But odd and large footprints found are believed by many to be made by the elusive cryptid, some of which was found by Vietnamese scientist Tran Hong Viet in 1982.

Sightings of the creature were among accounts of U.S. Troops during the Vietnam war. Gary Linderer a member of the 101st Airborne Long Range Reconnaissance Patrols reported running into a creature which he believed may have been Bigfoot. According to Linderer he was working his way through the brush when he ran across a five foot tall creature walking upright with reddish-brown hair covering most of its body. He described it as being muscular with broad shoulders and a very heavy torso. Another member of the squad who also witnessed the creature noted it may have been a rock ape, although Linderer and other disagreed that it was definitely no rock ape. The sighting was noted in Kregg P.J. Jorgenson’s book Very Crazy, GI: Strange But True Stories of the Vietnam War.
