Don Keating of Cambridge, a former Newcomerstown resident and the originator of the Eastern Ohio Bigfoot Investigation Center, will be featured on next week’s episode of the History Channel’s “MonsterQuest” miniseries.

The episode, to be broadcast next Wednesday at 9 p.m., is titled “Ohio Grassman.” The program will be repeated June 19 at 1 a.m. History Channel is seen on cable Channel 24.

The History Channel’s Web site describes the Grassman as “a bogeyman that has terrified local children for over a century.” And, according to stories and sightings, is similar to a Bigfoot, but builds strange nests and has been known to attack.

Keating said he was first contacted about being involved with the “MonsterQuest” production in mid-February. He said one of the program’s producers and a cameraman were in Ohio from late February to early March “shooting interviews and conducting day and night research.”

Keating was interviewed for several different parts of the show, as were residents of Noble County, Canton and Sunbury, the latter who claim to have sighted a Bigfoot at Salt Fork State Park near Cambridge in late December 2006.

He said he’s not sure how much of his interviews and nighttime research will be included in the show, but estimates it will be “a good bit.”
Denise and I attended one of his seminars a few years ago and found it very interesting. I have always had a fondness for the phenomenon know as Bigfoot. Especially since I had my own experience back in 1997 while living outside of Kent.

Hey, paranormal doesn't always just mean ghosts ;-)

Don Keating is a huckster, making money off sycophants.

The scientific method was applied to one of his personal sighting claims, here is the result.

Thank you Anonymous person from the Wellington, OH area using as a service provider to stop by and flame our blog.

If you're going to make claims, you should at least have the courtesy to say who you are. I've noticed a LOT in the bigfoot investigations field that flaming is a way of life. I guess that's why no one main stream takes it very seriously.
