Animal Planet's Finding Bigfoot investigators are in Mid-Michigan to investigate alleged Bigfoot sightings in Gladwin State Forest area, and areas around Houghton Lake and West Branch.

The filming is part of Animal Planet's third season of the series.

Many remain skeptical that Sasquatch really exists, but regardless, the series remains one of Animal Planet's most popular shows.

"Finding Bigfoot" follows the adventures of four individuals who have devoted much of their lives in pursuit of conclusive evidence that Bigfoot exists.

Published reports say the cast members will ride horseback as they travel through the area to investigate claims of Bigfoot sightings. A camera mounted beneath the nose of a helicopter will also follow the crew on their Mid-Michigan excursions.

For the past two years, a Bigfoot festival has been held in Comins by the Michigan Magazine Museum.

The event, which features Bigfoot researchers, as well as activities like a Bigfoot lookalike contest and a Bigfoot calling, is attended by both believers and non-believers of the hairy giant legend.

Organizers said the festival is being held in Comins because it's the "Bigfoot Capital" of Michigan, where there have been 35 document sightings.

Finding Bigfoot airs on Animal Planet on Sundays at 10 p.m.
