Later in 1991, Whatcom County followed suit with resolution no. 92 -043, declaring that Sasquatch is a protected species on their 2500 square miles of land.
Skamania County's ordinance will cost a person found guilty of killing or harming Sasquatch would be subject to a fine of up to $1,000 and/or six months in jail.
Whether you believe that Sasquatch exists or not doesn’t really matter.
What matters is that there are two counties in our great state of Washington where he (or she) is legally protected from harm just in case they do exist.
It’s fun to think about this mysterious creature roaming around our beautiful forests here on the west coast—and it’s even more fun knowing that we are doing our part to ensure its safety should it ever exist.
So next time you hear about a possible Bigfoot sighting near Skamania or Whatcom county, remember that he (or she) is safely protected by law.
Who knows - maybe one day we will get definitive proof that Bigfoot really does exist.
