Whenever we're in the mood for hard-hitting opinion about the urgent issues of the day, we tune into Countdown With Keith Olbermann. That's where we get caught up on the Gulf oil spill, the crisis in the Middle East ... and Bigfoot!

Yes. Bigfoot.

Olbermann recently reported on Tim Peeler, who claims to have met the mythical Sasquatch in his North Carolina backyard, where he was forced to defend himself by speaking very loudly and carrying a big stick.

Said Peeler of the 10-foot-tall creature: "He had beautiful hair. He looked like he had six fingers on each hand."

For more, check out Olberman's report below.
