A new cable reality show features rugged Northwesterners tromping through the region’s beautiful landscapes in search of Sasquatch.

Spike TV threw together big-game hunters, dedicated Big Foot aficionados called “squatchers” and animal-loving pro photographers. The new eight-week reality show on SpikeTV is called “10 Million Dollar Big Foot Bounty,” and comes, as the name suggests, with a $10 million prize. It premiers Friday.

Family of Sasquatch Campaigns for Discover Pass

Sasquatch sightings are old news. But I bet you've never seen a Sasquatch family hula-hoop before.

Meet the family. Standing at 9 feet 2 inches, Papa Squatch likes fishing, spending time with his family and cutoff shorts. Mama Squatch aspired to have her own show about "found foods" on HGTV and enjoys cleaning up the trails. And Lil' Squatch likes to eat road-kill burgers and hopes to someday meet Smokey Bear.

The family is part of the state's campaign for the Discover Pass. The Washington Department of Natural Resources received a $5,000 state grant to educate people on state recreation rules. That money went toward TV ads that show Sasquatch family buying a Discover Pass. 

A Northwest anthropologist has risked his career in pursuit of what the rest of science considers a myth. 

Jeff Meldrum of Idaho State University is the nation’s lone academic trying to make the scientific case for Bigfoot. It’s no joke. Now he's even raising money to launch an unmanned aircraft that would scan the Northwest's forests for the large, hairy creature.

The Northwest's favorite mythical creature has entered the era of the smart phone. A Spokane-area woman claims to have used her iPhone to catch Bigfoot on video.
