Today, August 5, at 8:00 P.M. (CDT)/9:00 P.M (EDT) the episode entitled Swamp Stalker will rebroadcast. The episode will also air again on History later overnight.
“Swamp Stalker” features two MonsterQuest teams comprised largely of TBRC investigators as they work to try to solve the enduring mystery of the “Swamp Stalker” in the Arkansas-Louisiana-Texas-Oklahoma region.
From History’s website regarding “MonsterQuest: Swamp Stalker”:
In the marshy swampland of Texarkana a legendary beast has hunted the residents of a small Arkansas town. Their story was immortalized in a well-known movie The Legend of Boggy Creek. The real events were a series of violent nocturnal attacks that left behind not only fear and panic, but also remarkable tracks. But the evidence is not just confined to history. Scientific clues continue to this day, and point to a malevolent monster that stalks the Deep South, with physical encounters by trained trackers and discoveries of tracks and scat. The strongest evidence will be examined using the latest scientific testing and two MonsterQuest teams isolate the search using both kayaks and horse-back, penetrating deep into territory that may be the home of the swamp stalker.

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
