Anyone with any legal knowledge here?
NW, below is a question to Washington State Wildlife Department....It also has a answer....I emailed him on this, and a few other things.
Hoping you do not mind helping me out again. If not, just let me know. Not sure if you have followed up on this live bigfoot captured thing, and no, I do not believe it. One thing, do you know where or whom can give me Federal law answers on this?
And now, more coming out, lol....The trap used to capture this thing had a pressure plate in it, a certain number of pounds has to activate it. There were tranquilizers used ( automatic ), and gas used to knock it out. This is either in Oklahoma, or Texas.And said to be on private property.
Would this even be legal?....
I would check with US Fish and Wildlife Service. And regardless of method, if the animal / being falls within the classification of wildlife, then hunting rules apply, including needing a season. Also, if human in nature, probably could make the case that it’s kidnapping, etc
