"Finding Bigfoot" In Salina? Episode Airs Sunday

SALINA, Kan. (WIBW/AP) -- What did the "Finding Bigfoot" team find in Kansas?

That question will finally be answered Sunday night. Last year, a television crew descended on Saline Co., looking for the mighty sasquatch.

The episode, titled "Bigfoot of Oz," will be on Sunday at 9:00 p.m. on Animal Planet. The show's website provided the following description:

The team travels to the heartland to determine if bigfoots live on the great plains of Kansas. With help from eyewitnesses, they narrow their search to waterways outside of Wichita where they take to the sky and employ a unique baiting technique.

We were first tipped off they were here when the Salina Journal reported that Saline Co. sheriff's deputies were getting calls about suspicious vehicles near a rural home.

Sheriff Glen Kochanowski says deputies found a television crew with several sport utility vehicles and a U-Haul at the site and determined the vehicles belonged to the crew from Ping Pong Productions of Los Angeles, Calif. The sheriff says the crew had the landowner's permission to be at the location.

A representative of the television crew said they had received information about a Bigfoot sighting in the area and were recording video for the cable program.
