The third season for the immensely popular History television show MonsterQuest commenced on February 4, 2009. On March 4, 7:00 P.M. (CST) the episode entitled Swamp Stalker, featuring investigators from the TBRC, will air again, with a repeat showing later that evening at 11:00 P.M. (CST).

Swamp Stalker
features two MonsterQuest teams comprised largely of TBRC investigators, as they work to try to solve the enduring mystery of the “Swamp Stalker” in the Arkansas-Louisiana-Texas-Oklahoma region.

From History’s website regarding MonsterQuest: Swamp Stalker:

In the marshy swampland of Texarkana a legendary beast has hunted the residents of a small Arkansas town. Their story was immortalized in a well-known movie The Legend of Boggy Creek. The real events were a series of violent nocturnal attacks that left behind not only fear and panic, but also remarkable tracks. But the evidence is not just confined to history. Scientific clues continue to this day, and point to a malevolent monster that stalks the Deep South, with physical encounters by trained trackers and discoveries of tracks and scat. The strongest evidence will be examined using the latest scientific testing and two MonsterQuest teams isolate the search using both kayaks and horse-back, penetrating deep into territory that may be the home of the swamp stalker.
