$10,000 Fine for Killing Bigfoot
I was having lunch with some colleagues yesterday, and one of them mentioned this "fact" I'd never heard before. He said in the state of Washington there is a law on the books that imposes a $10,000 fine for killing Bigfoot. He says the law was enacted during the Teddy Roosevelt administration, when the Pacific Northwest was still considered the frontier, I guess. He said at that time people had heard stories about Bigfoot from the natives, and were unsure as to whether such a creature existed, and decided to create a law to protect it just in case it did.
Has anyone else ever heard this story?
