Watch TONIGHT! Mystery Beast on TV

From Loren Coleman:

"MonsterQuest" kicks off Season Two tonight with their lead-in repeat from last season being the episode "Mutant Canines." This program features the so-called Turner Terror or Maine Mutant, made famous by the reporting of Mark LaFlamme. Being the "consultant cryptozoologist" on the case, I was doing interviews with radio stations in South Africa before that original media frenzy was over. :-)

Cameos by Mark and myself are to be found in the "Mutant Canines" show.

As it turns out, History filmmakers were at my International Cryptozoology Museum yesterday, filming snippets for their MonsterQuest website on the topics of Bigfoot, Yeti, Yeren, Orang Pendek, Chupacabras, and Merbeings.

Here is the listing for the evening, in the Eastern Time Zone:

MonsterQuest : Mutant Canines
Airs on Wednesday May 28 08:00 PM
Something strange is killing Fido. In 2006, a number of pets were killed in Maine and Minnesota by a beast locals describe as a mutant–one of these creatures was hit by a car. The body of this strange looking creature will be DNA tested to see what it really is. Two expeditions will be launched to trap other dog killers still at large. One-part history, one-part science and one part monster, discover the truth behind legendary monsters.

MonsterQuest : Mega Hog
Airs on Wednesday May 28 09:00 PM
Do wild hogs in the United States grow to monstrous sizes? Many think so. In Georgia an 1100 pound hog was shot and killed, and in Texas beasts almost as large have been reported. But are these creatures raised and fattened up in a pen, or are they wild hogs, naturally more aggressive, that have somehow reached gigantic proportions? A MonsterQuest examination meets victims of vicious wild boar attacks, looks at the existing evidence and teams up with hog hunters, researchers and trackers to find a giant.

Sweet. Every time the show runs again, I get strange phone calls from around the world. Dig it.

I'm a fellow New Englander. Did anyone catch the show. How was it?
