Claudia Ackley has taken it upon herself to sue the state for refusing to acknowledge the existence of Bigfoot.
Ackley, who is from Crestline, had been out hiking with her two daughters along a trail near Lake Arrowhead back in March 2017 when the two girls spotted an unusual figure in a nearby tree.

"They're standing right there frozen looking at something," she said. "He looked like a Neanderthal man with a lot of hair. About 800 pounds."

"I was trying to tell it to please not hurt us, and that's when he just stared at me."

She called 911 to report the sighting but was told that what they had seen was most likely a bear.

Now she is suing the state of California, as well as the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, for refusing to acknowledge the creature's existence.

"This was no bear. I know what I saw," she said.

Consistent failure to persuade zoologists or anthropologists to investigate Sasquatch phenomena may be explained by the fact that most of the available evidence consists of eyewitness testimony, which scientists are not trained or accustomed to deal with. The professionals who are trained to evaluate testimony, and who take it very seriously, are lawyers. Since lawyers also dominate the political scene, where the purse strings of scientific research are held, the best way to achieve a scientific investigation may be to convince the lawyers first. To this end, a campaign for a judicial or legis... [More]

California woman’s ‘Bigfoot is real!’ lawsuit has been dismissed for now A lawsuit filed by a Crestline woman demanding that the state recognize the Sasquatch, aka “Bigfoot,” as an official species has been dismissed. The court dismissed the case at the request of petitioner Claudia Ackley, on March 15, court records show. Ackley said her attorneys advised her to drop the lawsuit she filed Jan. 18 in San Bernardino Superior Court against the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and the state Natural Resources Agency. She plans to refile the suit so it is compliant with the rules of the c... [More]

I really don't see how she has a case without physical evidence of it being real.   Imagine how crazy it would be if the state put up thousands of signs that read "Bigfoot territory.  Enter at your own risk".

come to think about it you're right but then again it shouldn't really matter since the chances of big foot hiring an attorney are pretty slim.

Reply to DDMartin The forest product industry has to be in the multi billion dollar range, these companies,CEO's etc probably donate lots of $$$ to the politicians, I think it is much to the benefit of the politico's to keep these creatures (if they exist) under wraps, its much easier for the politico's to hide private dollars,than to steal public tax dollars. yes pork barrel politics still run wild,but its the private money that the politicians want.. MHO
