Big Fur documents Ken’s obsessive research and his meticulous Bigfoot re-creation from start to the moment he unveils her at the World Taxidermy Championship. While Ken would love to win ‘Best in Show’, his real hope is that putting ‘Patty’ on display will prompt some hunter to open his freezer and pull out the proof that Bigfoot is real. Instead, it’s Ken’s love life that gets thawed out.
Ken lives on the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rockies where folks still hunt and trap as a way of life. Is it possible that Bigfoot exists in this remote and vast landscape? According to the people we meet in this film, encounters are more common than you might think. But wilderness areas everywhere are being decimated by the logging, mining, and oil & gas industries.
