Petitioning State Senator Ann Rivers

Create a new Washington State Symbol “Cryptid”. Make SASQUATCH/BIGFOOT the State Cryptid.

A “Cryptid” is an animal whose existence has been suggested but has not been discovered or documented by the scientific community or by direct evidence.

Washington would be the FIRST state to designate Sasquatch/Bigfoot as a state Cryptid.

Right now in Washington State both Skamania and Whatcom County have laws protecting Sasquatch/Bigfoot. Washington should take the next step and designate Sasquatch/Bigfoot as a state Symbol. 

Washington leads all states in Sasquatch/Bigfoot sightings with 623 (http://www.bfro.net/gdb/ California is a distant second with 433. Our neighboring state Oregon has 243 and Idaho has 69.

Sasquatch/Bigfoot sightings occur on both sides of the Cascades. Thirty-one of Washington’s 39 counties have Bigfoot sightings. http://www.bfro.net/GDB/state_listing.asp?state=wa

Every state has multiple Sasquatch/Bigfoot sightings (except Hawaii) yet only Washington would have designated Sasquatch/Bigfoot as a state Cryptid symbol.

Is Sasquatch/Bigfoot real or not? Just about everyone has an opinion about that question. Washington could be in almost all those conversations as the state with Sasquatch/Bigfoot as its state Cryptid.

With Sasquatch/Bigfoot as the state Cryptid, Washington would enjoy the publicity that designation would generate.

Tourist’s dollars could increase as Washington becomes a destination where visitors are most likely to spot Sasquatch/Bigfoot. (http://crosscut.com/2015/07/bigfoot-in-washington-all-you-need-to-know/ (http://mynorthwest.com/143715/9-places-in-washington-where-youre-likely-to-find-bigfoot/ )

Few people know the state symbols of states other than their own. However many, from across the USA, would remember Sasquatch/Bigfoot as the state Cryptid of Washington.

It would be a source of pride and just plain fun to have Sasquatch/Bigfoot as the state Cryptid.
