SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Do you believe in Bigfoot? Well, a lot of Californians certainly do.

Travel Channel conducted research for a new show "In Search Of Monsters" gathered data from the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization and found that California had the second most reports of the creature in the country.
