New Destination America Special, 'Killing Bigfoot' Airs October 24

On October 24 at 9 p.m. ET, the one-hour special "Killing Bigfoot" will air on Destination America. To prove to the world that Bigfoot exists, Bobby Hamilton along with his friend Jim Lansdale, and their team of monster hunters, known as the Gulf Coast Bigfoot Research Organization (GCBRO), are out to solve that mystery. The team's mission is to prove that the cryptid exists by "harvesting a DNA sample for scientific evidence, even if that means killing Bigfoot to get it."

Here are the complete details via the press release and then check out a clip. Also, be sure to let us know your thoughts on this special. Will you be watching?

Comprised of engineers, corporate executives, military veterans, former cops, National Guard members, and even a coroner’s “body removal specialist,” GCBRO also aims to protect people from rogue sasquatches that they say could threaten the public safety. But however well-intentioned they may be, their extreme objective to kill Bigfoot puts them at odds with many in the crypto-zoological community who do not want to see one dead.

In "Killing Bigfoot," GCBRO conducts an all-night stakeout in response to reports of a possible rogue Bigfoot attacking a local woman’s house and farm animals. Later, they get a call from a hunter, who claims his foot was grabbed by a Bigfoot while 14 feet up a tree in a hunting stand. The investigation takes GCBRO into a night they will never forget.
