I Can Haz Monsters?

Who'd have thought we have a local producer who's putting out a show on unknown life forms?
Whether they're tracking Big Foot, looking for the Loch Ness monster or searching for giant squid, the "MonsterQuest" team is always on the hunt. The brainchild of Blaine producer Doug Hajicek, the show (8 p.m. Wednesdays; History channel) features investigations of unknown animal sightings from around the globe.

On local monsters: "There is stuff that happens within 80 miles of the Twin Cities. We have things like the Cumberland Beast in Cumberland, Wis., right across the border. There are very good, consistent sightings in the spring and fall in the St. Croix area of a Sasquatch or Big Foot creature. We have Peppy, a sea monster that's been seen in Lake Pepin. Minnesota and Wisconsin are not monster-free."
No shit, Sherlock. KAR scouts have posted many a monster sighting in Minnesota...

"Gay Sasquatch" at RNC Convention last September:




Some form of non-monkey, captured in this photo in disguise seeking prey after getting laid off at the Strib:




And the most elusive of all (pictured only once in a grainy photo) Mushroom Man.
