Park Service is requiring permits to hunt Bigfoot


If you’re going to make a business out of taking naive people into national parks and extorting money from them to go hunt around for Bigfoot, then the U.S. National Park Service has this message for you: They want in. Sasquatch hunter Matt Pruitt learned this when he was leading 31 believers (who had paid between $300 and $500 apiece) through Steel Creek in Arkansas last month and ran into rangers who cited him for “engaging in a business without a permit or written agreement.” Pruitt had to pay almost $600 for the permit, but apparently it’s worth the expense. He’s led Sasquatch-sighting-centered trips in 18 states and ranks Arkansas as being in the top three for potential to spot the wily beast.
