In January, Oklahoma State Rep Justin Humphrey (R-Lane) filed a invoice to determine a designated Bigfoot hunting season. It did not go very far. However now he is main the cost on a “Sasquatch Quest” by which the state tourism division will problem monitoring permits to Bigfoot seekers who would then take house a $2.1 million bounty in the event that they seize one alive. I hope no person succeeds. A transparent picture could be good although. From the Enid News & Eagle:
“We have to get some language, be sure that we defend Bigfoot and that we defend the general public (so) that no person is injured,” he stated.
Humphrey’s authentic plan instructed lawmakers put aside a $25,000 bounty for Bigfoot’s seize, however he stated an upcoming Hollywood Bigfoot film pledged round $2 million, whereas one other non-public enterprise promised a further $100,000. That eradicated any want for state funding.
He stated state tourism officers now are creating a Bigfoot promotional marketing campaign that features license plates, decals, an annual commemorative monitoring license and “Bigfoot checkout stations.” He stated they’re additionally engaged on a map of the area to indicate guests the perfect path to take to identify Bigfoot whereas selling close by companies on the similar time.
Any income generated from the brand new Bigfoot tourism marketing campaign will likely be used to take care of the state’s lakes, parks and roadways which are in “horrible, horrible situation,” he stated.
