FREDON, N.J. (AP) – It’s big, it’s hairy and people in northwestern New Jersey claim to have seen it. Now, a television series has joined the hunt for the infamous Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch.

The Animal Planet network’s “Finding Bigfoot” crew came to Sussex County last week to search the rural area for the legendary – some would say mythical – creature who has eluded capture despite numerous purported sightings.

The crew held a town hall-style meeting to hear about local sightings before taking to the field. The Daily Record of Parsippany reports that more than a dozen people shared stories.

It was the second trip to New Jersey for the show. A trek to the Pine Barrens came up empty.

The Sussex County episode is expected to air later this year.
