"Finding Bigfoot" on the Animal Planet network aired a new episode on Sunday night, March 16. "Finding Bigfoot" fans love all the members of the Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BFRO), but in this episode, Matt Moneymaker really embarrassed Squatchers around the country.
The "Finding Bigfoot" team was in Oregon, the second most wooded state in the United States, second only to Alaska, making it prime Bigfoot territory. Oregon is considered the “squatchiest” state in the country because Bigfoot sightings have long been very common there.
The team was very excited to be doing research and interviewing witnesses in the area near Cottage Grove. They wanted to take a book at the longest track wave of Bigfoot prints in existence. Cliff, a member of the BFRO, had actually helped to plaster cast these tracks, doing the majority of the prints himself.
What happened during the Oregon trip that would cause embarrassment to those who consider themselves Bigfoot believers? If you watched the episode, you may remember that they had the heat imaging equipment focused on the valley when some deer came running out. Matt Moneymaker got very excited and yelled in his very best B-rated Bigfoot movie voice:
“The deer are coming, and that means the squatches are coming!”
Those who are loyal viewers of “Finding Bigfoot,” already take a tremendous amount of grief from family and friends just for watching the show. Those of us who have made the mistake of mentioning that there is a possibility that Bigfoots do exist are labeled as crazy.
No, Matt, just because the deer are coming does not mean the squatches are coming. And, when you squeal like a little girl, it just does not make you look credible.
Normally, Matt Moneymaker is the sharpest, most knowledgeable BFRO member of them all. Maybe being in Oregon, ground zero for Bigfoot, caused him to get carried away. Let’s just hope it does not happen again anytime soon!
We Bigfooters already get mocked mercilessly, and the skeptics don’t need any more ammunition.
