All you have to do is see Bigfoot:
“Claudia Ackley, 46, filed a lawsuit against the California Department of Fish and Wildlife to get the agency to recognize Bigfoot—a hairy, ape-like creature allegedly seen by thousands of people—as a species.
Ackley went on a hike with her two daughters, ages 11 and 14, near Lake Arrowhead, California, when one of her daughters became startled.
Ackley said her daughter saw a Sasquatch-like creature staring at her while perched behind a tree, and claimed one of her daughters had the video to prove it.
“I swear to God, on my life, we ran into a Sasquatch,” Ackley said.
The mother then placed a phone call to California’s Department of Fish and Wildlife, which sent an official to investigate the situation. When Ackley showed the video to the official, the official told her that she saw a bear.
“They’re supposed to be there to protect the public. They’re not doing their jobs,” Ackley said of the state agency. “If I can save one life, it will be worth it.””
And apparently, Bigfoot is also a motivational guru:
“I realized at that point, looking at the creature, that there’s so much of life that we don’t know. Life is so beautiful, and I’m wasting my years,” she added. “I lost 125 pounds and decided to get a divorce . . . It motivated me to chase my dreams and live my life.”
Time for a quick poll.
If you ran into Bigfoot, would you:
A: Run away screaming
B: Ask for his autograph
C: Sue the state of California, lose 125lbs and divorce your husband?
I wonder what would happen if she ran into Nessie?
“If you ran into Bigfoot, would you:”
D. Check the Mushroom Identification Guide again, because those obviously weren’t morels that I found.
Black bears are notorious for walking bipedally (sp?), I think that is what accounts for most sightings. Unless, there is still a megapithecus or 2 still around.
