S01:E107 - Swamp Bear (Pt. 1)

1982 · 28 min
Marty searches for a honey-loving legend amid mud and bayou. In the eerie backwater bayous of southern Louisiana's Atchafalaya Basin, Marty Stouffer poles a traditional pirogue to track the South's largest animal, a honey-loving legend. Clues lead to a Bobcat, Alligator, Snapping Turtle, and other animals which share this mysterious realm with an elusive phantom - the Black Bear. Though large, it is now rare in these hardwood bottomlands.
