Do We Need Government Protection for Squatches?

When I first got interested in the subject of Sasquatch/ Bigfoot in the Fall of 2007 and started learning about them I was like most people that are into this and felt that solid evidence of their existence needed to be collected and presented so that they would be declared a new species by the scientific community and therefore would get protection from the Government. Since then the more I have learned and experienced out in the field my mind has changed on that thinking.

Now I feel it is best for Squatches if they just remained an undiscovered species that in most people’s minds isn’t supposed to exist and couldn't possibly exist. I’m happy with that. That way the Government won’t step in and start dictating where these creatures can and cannot live. This is what I’m afraid could possibly happen if the Government is forced to officially recognize them.

I am sure the Government has been aware of the existence of Squatches for quite a long time but for economic reasons has officially denied their existence. To protect these creatures may cost billions of dollars in mining, timber, and gas and oil drilling industries and I don’t think the Government is in the business of putting people out of business especially the way the US economy is now. Below is an article I recently found about business being relieved that the Sage Grouse won’t be listed as an endangered species in the Western US.

“CHEYENNE, Wyo. – An Interior Department announcement Friday that it won't list sage grouse as an endangered or threatened species opens the way for continued development of the West's wind energy and oil and gas industries.”

Can you imagine the impact it would have if the Government had to give Sasquatches protection? The way things are now these creatures have complete freedom to live and roam about where ever they choose and that’s the way I feel it should be for them.

Unfortunately it is probably a only a matter of time when all the evidence needed to prove these creatures existence will be presented by one or more groups that have been out there gathering data. So I guess as much as I don’t want to see this happen it’s going to happen anyway.

Below is a recent interview with well known Sasquatch/Bigfoot researcher Dr. Jeff Meldrum of Idaho State University and quote from it.

An interview with Dr. Jeff Meldrum dated 3/10/10: A quote from the interview… "As a scientist I don't have the answers yet," Meldrum said in a phone interview Tuesday. But he hopes his research will be fruitful."I'm quite personally convinced there will be a new species of primate confirmed," he said.

Dr. Meldrum says he doesn’t have the answers yet but is personally convinced there will be a new species of primate confirmed. I suspect that he made this statement because he has seen and heard of some of the good hard scientific evidence that is out there on these creatures.

Since I got into Squatch’n I have heard about different groups of researchers out there that have funding, have learned scientific techniques for evidence collecting and have been out in the field for some time gathering evidence. No one has come forward and released anything yet but it is going to happen someday. Whatever happens I just hope it doesn’t screw up the way these creatures live now. I hope things will stay the way they are for them… roaming free.

One thing is certain there is fame and fortune to be made by whomever comes up with the best proof of these creatures existence.
