Hiya! I'm Mikey. That's all you get. :)
I work Tuesday through Saturday and you can usually find me training the bears, mucking with the reptiles and saying bad words in Italian to the aquatic filter systems.

Don’t forget your permit!

April 3rd, 2012

Okay all you amateur cryptozoologists out there!  Newsflash time!  (In case you’re wondering, cryptozoology is the study of unknown animals.  Check out this link for an earlier post on it!)  But it seems that now you are required to have a permit to search for Bigfoot.  Recently a man in Arkansas was leading a tour of Sasquatch enthusiasts in a national park and was cited by rangers and given a fine of over $500 for hunting for Bigfoot without the proper permit.  So it now seems that to search for an animal of possibly unknown existence, you need to pay a permit fee to legalize it.

My thoughts on the matter? If they can charge for it, then it must exist!  :)  Now onto the Loch Ness Monster!

Join the conversation:

  1. My source says that’s because the leader of the search around the Buffalo National River had charged people money to join in – from $300 to $500. In other words, he was acting as a concessionaire. And in a national park, that’s a no-no.

  2. I mean it’s a no-no unless one has a contract with the national park.
