California Sued by Bigfoot 'Researchers'

The state of California is facing a very real lawsuit over the very questionable existence of Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch. The lawsuit is seeking that the state acknowledge the existence of Sasquatch as it both causes Bigfoot researchers, like the plaintiff, to suffer reputational harm, as well as endangers the public.

The plaintiff believes that the Sasquatch can be dangerous. Researchers claim one can weigh as much as 800 pounds, also, as we learned from Harry and the Hendersons, living with a Sasquatch can be fraught with risks.

Derelict of Bigfoot Duty

According the lawsuit against the state Department of Fish and Wildlife and the state's Natural Resources Agency: failing to acknowledge the existence of Sasquatch as a species is a violation of some duty owed to the public. As for damages, the lawsuit claims that the livelihoods, public images, and credibility of the Bigfoot researchers are harmed by the state's failure to acknowledge the existence of the alleged species.

If you have ever interviewed expert witnesses before, you probably won't be surprised to learn that there are experts out there that are willing to testify in court as to the existence of Bigfoot. Basically, it was only a matter of time before someone figured out some way to make a court case out of Bigfoot.

Some speculate that the case is nothing more than a publicity stunt for some Netflix series about Sasquatches, particularly as the evidence put forth by the plaintiff seems beyond lacking, particularly given the gravity of what it would mean.
