Bipedal ape-like beasts are welcome in the forests of Clallam County, officials in Washington have declared.
While most authorities would be more likely to dismiss the existence of Bigfoot out of hand than to take the phenomenon in any way seriously, that's certainly not the case in Clallam County.

Concerned that the creature could face extinction if it is not protected, county commissioners have taken the unusual step of making the region a 'refuge zone'.

The official proclamation reads as follows:

"WHEREAS, legends, sightings, research, investigation and recognition by various counties in various States support the notion that Sasquatch (aka Bigfoot, yeti, and giant hairy ape) exists; and
WHEREAS, if Sasquatch exists, it is not flourishing, given the very unusual event of being sighted, and it is likely an endangered species and subject to great harm and extinction if it continues to be unprotected;

WHEREAS, Clallam County desires that its citizens recognize the need to protect Sasquatch if it exists;

NOW THEREFORE, WE THE BOARD OF CLALLAM COUNTY COMMISSIONERS hereby Request all citizens of Clallam County recognize this County as a refuge for Sasquatch to prove both protection and security and also supports the Forks Sasquatch Day, May 26th through May 28th, 2023.

Signed this 11th day of April, 2023.

I attended a political science course in San Francisco and was told laws can only be passed based on facts not fiction. I asked the question about some provinces and States wanting to pass Bigfoot protection laws and I was told that some evidence had to be provided for it to be drafted and passed.

Yes, yes I'm sure someone presented something truly compelling. Still doesn't make the creature (as described) true or real. I have my list of questions if we're really going to go down this road again.

@UM-Bot This country is right on the ocean in the west far away where most clusters of "Bigfoot" sightings happen. Most people claim to have see this cryptid in central and eastern Washington state.
