A new TV special will take a look at that question. Bigfoot Captured airs on the History channel tomorrow night, November 9, at 9 p.m.
Here's some info about the show from History.com:
"Bigfoot is America's most legendary creature, and has always inspired more questions than answers. Could something resembling a massive man-ape really be roaming forests and hiding in the shadows undetected? Whether you believe in Bigfoot or not, there's something provocative about the idea that we could be living with an unseen monster. But what if one day we did more than catch a glimpse of one? What if we captured the creature? This two-hour special, compiled by a director who traveled the world looking for proof Bigfoot actually exists, takes and unexpected turn when a Sasquatch capture is caught on camera. What happens when what most of us if fiction becomes fact? And what does it mean for us all if the creature is really out there."
I'd read someplace else that this is a "semi-scripted" documentary (aren't they all?) There's a picture of Jeff Meldrum and John Bindernagel with the description of the show, so they are apparently in it. I guess we'll just have to wait and see if this is a real documentary or if it turns out that History made another "documentary" like the ones about mermaids, megalodon, and Russian yeti.

I watched about 30 minutes of this show and couldn't watch the rest. It was just a fake scripted thing like Megalodon, Mermaids, and Yeti.
