You Can't Kill Bigfoot in Washington; It's the Law!

April 20, 2018

If you're going to catch Sasquatch, you have to know where to look. Bigfoot's typical habit is anywhere from the redwoods of California to the Canadian border and all the evergreen land in between from Oregon to Washington. But be careful on your Bigfoot hunts! In 1984 Washington state passed an ordinance that states killing Bigfoot who is considered “endangered” can get you a year in jail, a $1,000 fine or both. 

There's a Buckly Big Foot Facebook page dedicated to finding the ape-like creature! They even go out on Bigfoot hunts on the weekends to try and get a glimpse.

When they see Bigfoot, they make sure to let the group know! 

Even Washington state law makers want to make Bigfoot the state symbol on license plates! Yeah, he's a popular creature! 

"Whether you're a believer or not, Washington has the highest number of Bigfoot sightings in the country, and Senator Rivers said passing the bill would be a way to recognize Sasquatch's contributions to the state and preserve Bigfoot's legacy". - KOMO News 

There's even a "Bigfoot Bridge" that is complete and visible to those traveling on I-90. It will allow all animals including Bigfoot to travel unimpeded over the busy interstate.

Bigfoot has been spotted in the last month near Fairfax and Orting. The last sighting there according to locals was 30 years ago! 


Then of course there's all the videos of Bigfoot sightings! 


I mean look, I've even seen Bigfoot! And he was kind enough to take a photo with me in Ballard. Looks like he's really enjoying all this sunshine! 


So whether you believe or not, Bigfoot is here to stay in the state of Washington. Plus it's always a good time hiking into the woods of our beautiful state to try and find this woodsy ape-like creature! Happy Bigfoot Hunting!
