OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) — Oklahoma’s bounty on Bigfoot has grown to nearly $2.1 million only weeks after a bill was proposed to allow capturing of the mythical creature.
The number one rule, Sasquatchers must capture Bigfoot unharmed and can’t injure anyone else or break any laws in the process.
Oklahoma State Rep. Justin Humphrey’s original plan suggested lawmakers set aside a $25,000 bounty for Bigfoot’s capture.
State tourism officials are now developing a Bigfoot promotional campaign that includes license plates, decals, an annual commemorative tracking license and “Bigfoot checkout stations.”
The current plan is to allow businesses along State Highway 259A to sell annual Bigfoot tracking permits.
Profits from the sales would stay in the local communities.
Humphrey said his ultimate goal is to draw in tourists by providing safe, affordable fun.
