Already largely synonymous with the legendary Bigfoot, one politician in Washington state is looking to take that association one giant step further.
State senator Ann Rivers has introduced a bill in the Washington legislature that would name Sasquatch as the state's "official cryptid."
According to the proposal, the reasoning for the rather odd honor is because "Sasquatch has made immeasurable contributions to Washington state's cultural heritage and ecosystem."
While one might suspect that the idea for the bill came lobbyists looking to strengthen the creature's grasp on the Washington tourism industry, it is actually not the handiwork of a proverbial 'Big Bigfoot.'
