OLYMPIA, WA (KEPR) — Sasquatch may or may not be roaming through the woods of Washington state right now, but a bill is trying to make Bigfoot one of the state symbols.
State Sen. Ann Rivers wants Bigfoot to be named our state cryptid, which is an animal that hasn’t been proven to exist.
Whether you’re a believer or not, Washington has the highest number of Bigfoot sightings in the country, and Senator Rivers said passing the bill would be a way to recognize Sasquatch’s contributions to the state and preserve Bigfoot’s legacy.
Rivers even announced new legislation Tuesday that would create a Sasquatch license plate.
Revenue from the plates would go to park maintenance and improvements.
