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.

I'm tired of the various Government bodies stealing everything from the tax paying public that they can get. I hope she takes the government for all she can get, and I know how expensive lawyers can be.

i think she's suing cause she was ridiculed by the relevant government authorities when she reported the sighting.

So you want to charge the tax payers to pay a woman who thinks she seen a creature that doesn't exist? That makes no sense. I guess you'd be rooting for me to win a lawsuit against the government for not recognizing leprechauns?

the lawsuit against the government yes. the leprechauns I am not sure about. As to bigfoot, no comment, for a reason.

Well a species that is more intelligent than your average ape can be more elusive than any other creature on land, and I would assume with better senses than humans (smell/hearing/sight) can definitely be harder to find. Especially, if people commonly mistake them for bears. There are a few elusive animals across the world. The stories and claims around the world makes it a bit harder not to believe that the possibility of existence is true rather than not at all.

The Gov doing species a favor....that's good LOL.... No. If nothing else convinced me they are not known to be out there, it is that we don't have any locked up for testing... not even in Area 51.

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]

Obviously Area 51 is used to hide secret government Loch Ness Monsters. Duh.
