FOUKE, Ark. (KTHV) - According to THV 11's partners at Arkansas Business, an Animal Planet crew is checking out Miller County in their search for "Bigfoot."

Arkansas Business reports that the crew has been filming in the Fouke area since earlier in the month as part of the show "Finding Bigfoot." Fouke was selected thanks to the film "Legend of Boggy Creek" which was shot in 1972 about the legendary "Fouke Monster."

The cover of the "Legend of Boggy Creek" DVD reads, "Half-man, half-beast...a mysterious creature has been stalking the woods and waterways near Fouke, Arkansas since the 1940s."
