Animal Planet Series On Bigfoot Fuels Interest In What Experts Have To Say About the Phenomenon.

A Bigfoot symposium held in western New York earlier this year is now being marketed as an online video.

“The popularity of the Animal Planet Network television series on Bigfoot has obviously spilled over and generated keen interest in what experts have to say,” notes Peter Wiemer, director of the Chautauqua Lake Bigfoot Expo.

Hundreds of Bigfoot devotees flooded his event, the first of its kind. And three hours of proceedings, much of it quite fascinating, resulted in an online streaming video now available through his website.

Sales of the video have been surprisingly brisk, Wiemer adds.

“I saw a perfect opportunity for organizing the symposium after ‘Finding Bigfoot’ was aired on the Animal Planet Network and drew 1.6 million viewers with its second season premier.”

The Chautauqua Lake Bigfoot Expo featured true authorities on the subject. Billy Willard, vice-president of the American Bigfoot Society and director of the Alliance of Independent Bigfoot Researchers presented there. So did Melissa Hovey, president of the American Bigfoot Society. Larry Battson, a wildlife expert and Steve Kulls, who is noted for his own Bigfoot research also discussed their findings.

Symposium participants learned about Bigfoot, legendary ape-like humans who have been repeatedly sighted across much of the United States including New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio. Speakers likewise assessed the emotional impact witnesses to a Bigfoot sighting may undergo, as first-hand experiences—sometimes terrifying—are met with doubt or ridicule.

“Bigfoot type creatures definitely appear to live in peace and harmony here in Chautauqua County and in many other remote areas of the country,” says Wiemer. “We had no less than seven local eyewitnesses to Bigfoot sightings come forward to describe their experiences. It was compelling stuff—and something scoffers have trouble discounting.”

The three hours of recorded presentations are available for a nominal fee through his website at
