How’s that for a headline?
According to the Center for Biological Diversity’s weekly digital newsletter Endangered Earth Online, a request was made to New York state’s Department of Environmental Conservation on the Squatch’s behalf (see a copy of the rejection letter below):
Recently the founder of the Chautauqua Lake Bigfoot Expo, located in western New York, requested that the state’s Department of Environmental Conservation protect Gigantopithecus Americanus, aka Bigfoot, from hunting.
That’s not good news for Squatches in The Empire State as a rather sizeable bounty has been placed on their head. Spike TV is offering a $10 million prize for proof of the Squatch’s existence. They are producing a new “reality” show scheduled to air in the Fall of 2013. Insurer Lloyd’s of London hasn’t yet determined what constitutes proof enough to win the prize.
I’m guessing a dead body would do the trick. Well, a dead Squatch, that is. Recordings of coyotes howling, branches falling in the woods and a bunch of hoaxed videos won’t really cut it. Hew, now! How you doin’, men of Finding Bigfoot? Now there’s a swimsuit calendar we can do without.
The show is in preproduction now and is supposed to be 10 one-hour episodes. Show producers claim they don’t want another show with 10 episodes where nothing happens, but the size of the bounty and the quality of the insurer would indicate that is exactly what they expect will happen. Nothing.
