Authorities Confirm Hunting for Bigfoot in Texas is Legal — Seriously

YouTube

John Lloyd Scharf, a Bigfoot fan from Oregon, emailed the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department last week about hunting unknown creatures, and according to Texas law, apparently it is legal to kill Bigfoot in the state of Texas — if, in fact, it does exist.

TPWD chief of staff, Lt. David. Sinclair, wrote back to Scharf stating, “An exotic animal is an animal that is non-indigenous to Texas. Unless the exotic is an endangered species, then exotics may be hunted on private property with landowner consent.”

Sinclair also told FoxNews.com that his response has been taken wildly out of context.

“This guy never really alluded to Bigfoot, though it seems maybe he said something about Sasquatch,” Sinclair told FoxNews.com. “He took my statement and said that it was safe to hunt an ‘indigenous cryptid,’ whatever that is. He misquoted me.”

The bottom line is that according to what Sinclair cites, it would be legal to shoot Sasquatch in the state of Texas.

“Nongame” means wildlife indigenous to Texas that aren’t deer, sheep, geese, alligators, or any other animal hunted for food. If the Commission doesn’t specifically list a beast, and Bigfoot doesn’t make the list, obviously, it isn’t protected.

Sooo, I’m glad we cleared all that up …
