Texas Parks and Wildlife: Bigfoot Hunting is Legal

By Phil Bourjaily

Rick Dyer created a stir when he claimed to have shot Bigfoot on the northwest side of San Antonio, Texas, in 2012.
 
While doubts remain on whether it is the real thing or a modern day Cardiff Giant, one of the many questions about his dubious claim has been answered unequivocally: Is shooting Bigfoot even legal?

“We don't acknowledge that [Bigfoot] exists. But if you wanted to shoot and kill a Bigfoot in the state of Texas, you would just need a hunting license,” said Major Larry Young, game warden with Texas Parks and Wildlife. 

Dyer says he has DNA and body scans to prove that Bigfoot is real. He has also released pictures of the creature and plans on taking it on tour this winter, charging a fee to see it.

This is just plain WRONG in so many levels.

While I'd love to believe that Sasquatch actually exists, there is no doubt this is a hoax. He's done it before.

And I'll tell you this, if it turns out NOT to be a hoax, I'll applaud him for shooting it. No doubt in my mind that if I saw one I'd pull the trigger as well. Science will only document a specimen, not a photo or a story.

I'm waiting for Sasquatch to go all jack links on his butt.

I wonder if you need a hunting license to shoot Zombies in Texas?
